Abstract:The golfer must, if necessary, move from tee to green to play the game. This movement results in a fairly regular pattern of traffic which becomes obvious through a wear pattern. Normally a cart path is installed to accommodate this. Concrete paths or worn areas in the turf are not attractive features on a golf course. They also contribute to unfair bounces and bad lies. To keep the golf carts on the path use plastic chain, ropes, directional signs, a small curb on the edges, low attractive fencing or landscape planting beds and hedges.
