Do You know how to repair YOUR Pitch Marks?

Wychwood Park's European PGA tour-standard course opened in 2002, at 7213 yards off the championship tees, it provides the ultimate challenge for golfers. Greens are to USGA standard and we have hosted a PGA Euro Pro Tour event back in 2005 and now in 2009.

Do You know how to repair YOUR Pitch Marks?

We have some of the best greens in the area. But not everyone knows how to repair their own and fellow competitors pitch marks; here is how...


Correct Method

  • Discard the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball
  • Insert the pitchmark repairer tool just outside of the back of the pitchmark
  • Lever the turf towards the centre of the pitchmark
  • Repeat this motion from all sides of the pitchmark
  • Gently tap the repaired area with your putter. This action stretches undamaged turf over the pitchmark, providing instant recovery

Incorrect Method

  • DO NOT replace the loose piece of turf taken out by the ball. It will die and delay the healing process. 
  • DO NOT pry up the centre of the depression with the pitchmark repairer as it exposes the soil and will delay the healing process 
  • DO NOT insert the pitchmark repairer and twist it. This only breaks more turf loose
