8/8/2011 - INCIRLIK AIR BASE  -- Headquarters Air Force Services has launched its second annual golfer survey at 71 courses worldwide. This survey, designed by the National Golf Foundation, gives Incirlik Air Base golfers the chance to provide valuable feedback on the Hodja Lakes Golf Course.

"We ran this survey in 2007 to determine what was most important to the golfers here at Hodja Lakes Golf Course," said Tom Abrahamson, golf course manager. "The survey results are not only important to us here, but also at Air Force level, as they develop programs and the direction of Air Force golf."

"The last survey showed us that the golfers at Incirlik thought the overall course conditions were poor because of the dryness of the fairways," said Abrahamson. "Because of this feedback, we improved irrigation and now have 100 percent more grass than in previous years. We also took steps that improved the quality and health of the turf."

member 244 and member 245 In order for your suggestion to be heard I suggest you complete the survey on the 39th FSS website. The PA office is aware the location of the survey is or was missing and will hopefully add that information shortly. Enjoy your golf game

The course is flat to make it a little more funchallenging what are the chances of new holes being created wman-made rolling hills in the fairways or even fairway sand bunkers

Last year yardage markers were put in place...great idea But now I they are barely visible on some holes. Can these markers be cleaned up to be more visible On hole 16 the markers are always placed in a location where you are either on dead grass or on a hill can this be fixed by placing the tees on the other tee box or have the tees angled to where you aren't hitting from dead and hard location. Last one....I think hole 6 could use a bunker on the short right side of the green promoting either a more accurate drive off the box for the long hitters or a more accurate approach shot for the not so long hitters. In the 11 months I have been here the course has come a long way and improvements are noticeable all around. Keep up the great work crew and staff
