By Chris O’LearyEditor on October 15, 2018There’s nothing quite like a little rock laying down on the grass at the end of a fairway.
And in a recent round at The Country Club of Melbourne, that rock was the size of a large parking lot.
The gravel was so fine that it almost looked like the golf course was turning into a parking lot on one side, with the greens at the other.
As one golfer told ESPN, the grass looked like a giant pile of sandpaper.
I was impressed.
I’ve been putting down some rough lately.
The next round, a more experienced player told me the same thing.
I was pretty impressed.
The sandpaper looked so fine it almost seemed like the fairway was turning to a parking garage on one end.
It was a fun week of golf, and this was my first time putting down the greens of the Country Club, which was also a very nice club.
We’ll get the grass back to a little more of its natural condition before we put down a big one on Friday, so we’ll have a look at what’s been done in the past and what needs to be done to make it more attractive to the amateur player.
But I do know it’s an important part of the course, and it’s a beautiful sight to behold.
