Course Maintenance: Spring Aerification
We will be aerating the greens Tuesday, April 6th. Our spring aerification will be using normal size tines and will minimally impact the greens. This is a necessary process to enable healthy growth and faster greens. We will have the golf course closed for most of the day but hoping to reopen around 3pm. This schedule is pending favorable weather conditions. Call the golf shop to ensure the process was completed without delay at 415.492.1800.
Your “Old Faithful” sand or pitching wedge may be adding strokes to your game. New research by the Titleist Vokey Team provides a huge opportunity for golfers of all skill levels to add spin and precision to their short game. We offer up-to-date sand and pitching wedge options from Titliest, Callaway and Cleveland Golf.
The short game is key to a great round of golf and improving your short game is the first step to a lower score. What you may not know is that your sand or pitching wedge may be doing you more harm than good. There is a good chance that its grooves are practically worn away due to years of ball striking. As the Titelist Vokey R&D team discovered, worn grooves are a detriment to your game.
The Vokey R&D team did some in depth testing to shed light on how groove wear can affect launch, spin and overall short game performance. They tested three levels of groove wear using a proprietary wedge robot at the Manchester Lane test facility. The results? Wedges with fresh grooves provide more backspin and lead to more precise shots. Fresh grooves provide:
Why are grooves important?
Think of grooves on a golf club as the tread on a tire. The grooves grab the ball just like the tread grips the road, creating spin and producing ideal shot trajectory. The grooves also produce ball-stopping power when contact is made between the ball and the green. Just like the tread on your tire becomes less efficient as it wears away, so do the grooves on your wedges.
When should I replace my wedge?
PGA Pro’s replace their wedges every couple months. Most recreational golfers don’t have the time or resources to replace clubs quite this often, but they are also guilty of replacing clubs too infrequently (take a minute and think about how old that wedge is in your bag right now…) In Vokey’s research they found that wedges start to lose spin and performance after about 75 rounds. After 75 rounds golfers should consider a new set of wedges with fresh grooves to give them more control, more confidence and in the end allow them to hit the ball closer to the hole.

McInnis Park Golf Center is a Wedge Fitting Center. We have many different fitting wedges in stock with varying loft and balance. There are many different variables to think about when choosing a wedge and we can fit you for a wedge set that is perfect for your swing and game. Stop by the golf shop to take a look or call the golf professionals to set up your wedge fitting. If your wedges have seen more than 75 rounds of play, new wedges will pay big dividends when it comes to your scores.

Modern technology has brought us many advantages such as online ordering, computers to trace how far we can hit a golf ball, and it has also brought us step tracking! Have you ever wondered how far a wait staff person walks a shift? A day? A month? Over the last 2 months the General Manager of The Club restaurant has been calculating how many steps he walks a week and can you guess how far? If you guessed over 50 miles you would be correct!
The days are getting longer and the weather is getting warmer. It’s that time of year to celebrate one another with pastries, omelettes, and carving stations!
