Here is a video from the USGA on repairing divots.
Our course is our club, the quality of our course is the reason we are the leading golf course in our area. To maintain this level of excellence it is imperitive we assist our green staff as much as we can. The repair of divots is crucial in this regard. Please watch the above video. Sand should NOT be put in the divot before replacing the turf. Our recommendation is that sand be put on the turf after replacement then tramped down to grass level. If turf replacement is not possible (no grass roots attached) then sand should be used to fill the divot to grass level. Any sand left above ground level plays havoc with our mower blades.
Our greens, like all greens, need a lot of tender loving care to keep them in tiptop condition. Please fix your own any pitch marks you can see without holding up the group following you. I'm sure the green will remember and reward you sometime in the future, (just after you have that putting lesson).
Here's how the repairs should be done.The section on repairing the pitch marks is particulary good. Please click here to see the video from a golf club in the US
