Walk Paths

Below is a picture of one of our walk paths.  As you will notice, like many on the course, they are starting to look bare and unsightly.  There are many reasons why some are becoming an eyesore: i.) less efficient irrigation in these areas ii.) lower height of cut which during drier times turfgrasses become thin.  iii.) compaction from carts, mowers, and walkers.

The last point is very important because members/guests tend to use the walking paths like cart paths.  This is not the intent of these areas and if people continue to drive down them it will only get worse. Please stay off of walking paths with golf carts as much as possible so that these areas can have a more attractive look.
