How do you pick up all the small branches littering the fairway. For example, I think #15 may have had the most debris I have seen in a while. Do you blow the branches & twigs? Or is there a "rake" that is pulled behind a tractor?

We will go out and pick up the larger debris, then we will take a blower and blow off the fairway. Depending on where the fairway is and how much debris is on it, we will then rake up the piles, blow them into an out of the way place or just leave them and mulch it up with a mower.
