In preparation for the Men's Pac 10's in April, we are in the process of adding some tightly mown areas around the greens. These tightly mown areas are meant to enhance the interest of some pin placements that will be used for the tournament. The areas will look thin and off color for a few weeks while the grass adapts to the lower mowing height. Mowing these areas shorter requires more labor-hours every week, so we may or may not keep them beyond the tournament.
