Rope and stake

While we don't get huge amounts of play here at FCC, the play that we do get and the cart traffic that comes with it can do damage to the turf if not kept in check.  If carts are allowed to roam as they please, inevitably they take the shortest path and stay as close to the greens and tees as possible.  It is because of this that we put up sections of rope and stake to funnel carts to the areas where we want them to go and keep them out of areas where we don't want them.  Most of the rope and stake is located around the greens.  This keeps the carts off of the approaches and greens surround allowing the turf to have the best growing environment.
