Mowing in the Dark

Morning at TPC Sawgrass Agronomy doesn't wait for the sun to appear.  Here is a couple of TPC Agronomy staff members mowing the Putting green in front of the clubhouse well before the crack of day.  All of the mowers used for Greens, Approaches, Fairways, Intermediates and Tees are equipped with lights to allow for mowing before sunrise.  This can lead to challenges at times during calm mornings when dew resettles behind the mowers leaving the playing surfaces more moist than desired.  The management team bases the crew start time by balancing the scheduled starting time for golf and maximizing the condition and experience for our members and guests.
