Weather aside, why were those circular holes that run along the edge of #4 fairway created?

The sod from those holes was used to patch a hydraulic oil leak on #4 fairway. In the past, we had taken a big chunk of sod to patch these areas. This time, we tried many spaced out patches in the hopes that the smaller holes would fill in faster.
