PEM Golf Matting on Tapawingo's Practice Green
Rob Amelung, PEM Surface Creations Vice-President, was recently playing a round of golf at Tapawingo National Golf Club in Sunset Hills, Missouri. This course has three championship nines featuring gorgeous greens and inviting fairways.
Like many courses, Tapawingo struggled to maintain grass leading to their practice green. This area created a two-fold problem:
- The high-traffic area meant grass would be destroyed easily
- Mulch was not an option because it would create unnecessary mess
PEM Golf Course Matting was the perfect solution! Tapawingo installed the slip-resistant matting on a walkway leading to their practice green.
PEM is a great way to provide a safe surface on areas where grass struggles to grow. Sometimes referred to as “goat trails”, these sore-spots present challenges for even the most seasoned golf course superintendent.
Are you sick of battling worn-down, dying grass and washed-away mulch? Consider PEM Golf Matting for your course! The textured surface reduces the risk of slippage while the porous construction allows water to pass through, creating a safe, dry surface for golfers!
