Not all Practice is good Practice on golf course

The saying goes "Practice makes perfect," however when it occurs continually on isolated areas of the golf course it produces the opposite effect for the turf.

Here is a photo taken at the primary practice putting green in front of the clubhouse, with entrenched foot marks from a golfers extended practice session using an isolated spot.  This should be avoided year round and especially during fall and winter months on bermuda grass as it is off peak growing season.  The recovery time for this area will be significant and will be an eye sore to all members, guests and visitors of the club over the coming months.
