Pitch Marks
Leaving Pitch Marks when playing destroys the greens, it takes a lot of care and attention to keep them in pristine condition, so all members and green fees are asked to repair them and use the correct repairer when doing so.
Do not use club heads to repair a pitch mark as this damages the green. Always use a pitch repairer

Also do not use the club head to take balls out of holes on greens as this damages the hole. 

If anyone has an hour or two Mondays to Fridays to spare to give a hand helping on the course you would be very welcome.
