2019 Green Superintendent's Revenge

This years event was much different than our past Superintendent's Revenge tournaments, in the past we set the course up long and put the pins in very difficult spots. This year Dave Mosbacher and his wife Vielka really got into the spirit of the event and set up some great obstacles. A few are pictured bellow, but this does not include everything they setup. They had tractors blocking the front of greens, holes that were not set all the way down, leaving a plastic hole liner a 1/4 inch above the surface, they had a hole with 5 holes and you had to put into the middle hole, if you accidentally make your putt in the wrong hole it was a 2 stroke penalty. If you missed this years event you missed a lot of fun. Dave said he has even more ideas for next fall.

See some of the wacky course set up in the pictures bellow.

Winning Team

Three pins on the front left of # 12, the photo does not show the steep slope they are on. If you miss one of the hole your ball rolled off the green.

Winning Team

Close up shot of three holes on # 12.

Winning Team

Half moon garden on # 9. If you missed the green left of this garden you had to putt around it to get to the hole.

Winning Team

Tires on # 5, had to putt around them.

Winning Team

#13 had a hose on the front and right side that could help or hurt. If you were above the hole you at least could not putt off the green, but if you were below it chipping our putting you had to get it over the hose.

Winning Team

17 had half dollar spot. Dave placed half dollar size coins all over the green, putting was difficult. This was a play on a turf disease called "dollar spot" that most course see during warm wet periods.
