The Jackson Park turf team will be installing irrigation around the putting green.  This will be a vast improvement over having to place hoses and sprinklers out during the summer.  It will also improve irrigation efficiency and provide a better playing surface.

Instruction Tip from PGA Instructor, Dave Boivin 

Key to better scores and lowering your handicap - practice more from 100 yards and in.  Work on better contact, trajectory and directional control.  Know your options when on the course, have fun and create games when at the range.  When coaching at an ESPN Golf School, Dave was asked, "How do I become a better putter - Easy!  Become a better chipper and you will make more putts".
