Cart Traffic Control
It's been about four months since we started painting red cart traffic lines in front of greens complexes, and I am encouraged to see so many people helping us keep carts away from greens. To be honest, I wasn't sure how successful painting lines on the ground would be, but so far it seems to be a big help. Signs are easier to see while you are playing but they have some down side. They aren't cheap to purchase and they often get damaged and need replacing. They also need to be moved by the mowing crew. Painting the lines is convenient because it doesn't interfere with routine maintenance practices such as mowing.
Our intention for the lines is to keep compaction to a minimum and maintain the best turf quality in our greens complexes. The grounds staff appreciates your cooperation with this program and look forward to seeing you on the course!
