Golf courses roll, turn, and twist; they are hilly, flat, have ponds, and, often times, areas of forest. The intricacy of golf courses makes the game fun. It brings new levels of depth to every shot; every hole is a different experience. But, all of these twists and turns and ups and downs make having a solid cart path of vital importance to any golf course. Over our years of working with courses, we have seen many courses abandon their cart paths, leaving them cracked and crumbled. We are hoping that this article shifts your attention to the importance of having an adequate cart path system.
Navigating the Terrain
Cart paths have a single goal in mind; conveniently getting golfers across the course. Being able to ride a golf cart across a beautifully constructed concrete path may not seem like it’s the most important part of the golfing experience, but when it isn’t there it’s very noticeable.
Protecting the Course
Every golfer knows the “Cart Path Only” sign, but not every golfer knows why it’s there. Cart paths help protect the golf course from the golf carts as well as protect golfers from the course. This usually happens when the course it too wet, though high-traffic seasons can also warrant it. Cart paths allow you to protect your course and maintain balanced traffic during peak seasons.
Why Fusion Golf?
Whether you need rolled or blocked curbing, Fusion Golf has the expertise to handle any cart construction project. We specialize in golf course construction, and that gives us insight into how and where to lay cart paths on golf courses. Regular paving companies may be able to provide concrete and labor, but they don’t have the industry experience and know-how when it comes to the design of a golf course. Over the years, we have worked with countless American golf courses as well as dozens domestically. From Germany and Sweden to China, we have worked on projects across the globe. We live and breathe golf courses, and, luckily, we also happen to know a thing or two about paving. We ensure that every cart path has proper drainage as well as adequate thickness and appropriate subgrade compaction. Not to mention, our cart paths are simply beautiful. This is one of those situations where we are going to let our pictures speak for themselves.
