Changing Hole Locations Protocol

One of the many daily tasks the agronomy crew performs is changing the hole locations on the greens. Pin sheets are created and printed out daily to move the pins. We save our plugs each day to replace it in the original location from where it was pulled the day before. This way we can match up the grain on the green with the plug. A small line in the cup along with a tee placed in the plugs enables us to replace the plug in exactly the same orientation as the previous day. This allows the plug's grain to match the grain of the surrounding portion of the green which is far less noticeable weeks and months later.
