As many have noticed, we are cutting the fairways different now as the rainy season is here (at least that is what they say!). The reason we have switched is because when you cut stripes, multiple turns are made in the rough. When it is wet out, I like to reduce the amount of turns to avoid turf damage. Another benefit of the 50/50 cut is that it is much quicker to get all the fairways cut. Enjoy it for now before we change back in late March or April.
