Enlarging the Tee Surfaces by Mowing

This is a photo of the back of the white tee on number 2.  Over time, the front and back of the tees tend to creep in from operators trying not to scalp the edges while mowing.  Centimeters turn into inches and inches turn into feet over the years.  You can see in this photo the different shade of grass towards the back of the tee.  Yesterday we went around to all of the tees that needed to be enlarged and scalped them down to tee height.  They will look odd for the remainder of the season but by next June they will start blending in.  We took this same aggressive approach to the enlargement on left of 18 fairway last fall.

This is the back of 2 tee after we enlarged the surface.
