Hi Randy, you're probably right... I've never run across this in the FJC. This is one of the coolest!
Anyway, what if I chose to be every type of a well maintained grass on a golf course... err. . .with the exclusion of the roughs, probably. Only because, I'm not too excited about anyone's ball being in a tough to play rough, even though I know some may cherish the idea.
But, a tightly mowed bent grass on greens are so nice to putt on with a good speed to pair with its slope design.
Also, some, but a few courses that I have been on have fairways that are oh so much nicer than any ordinary, the way it's tightly mowed. Green keepers can sometimes cut them to have the look effect of diamonds or checkerboard, or even stripes.
I've been told, preparation is everything in golf. The nice color it has exhibits good health and a very playable running fairways with smooth rolling greens- man, that's a lot of preparation. It only makes sense for it to be a special pairing for the times it took anyone to prepare the game they have, the attire chosen for the day, tuning the equipment, and everything else that anyone prepared for in golf to be with the nice grass on the course.
Nothing gives me more joy than to find a well maintained grass on a course. But, if I could take it a step further, I wish I knew or I wish I was an agronomist working on a simple golf course so that many golfers would experience the same.
