Golf Cart Traffic

one cart good, one cart bad
While the dry winter was great for the golfer, it was not great for our high traffic areas around tees, greens, and bunker edges.  The only way that we are going to get these areas back into acceptable conditions is to do the best we can to keep carts off of these areas. 
One of the most frustrating parts of my job is controlling golf cart traffic.  Many times when I am putting up ropes and signage I wonder why would someone drive there cart in this area.  When you talk to most golfers about why they park there cart just off the path is to make it easier for carts going the opposite direction to pass them (beverage cart, marshal, maintenance staff).  Most golfers experience traffic on only 2 holes per round of golf but they park the cart off the path on every tee and green complex.  Lets keep our golf course is great condition and keep all four wheels on the path around tees and greens.
