Depending on your sand fill and the length of shot you are building the impact pad is an option to help make your new golf green a great success. Our policy when designing and managing a golf green installation of any kind is to utilize the impact pad for numerous reasons. The rock base installed to provide stability is difficult to get absolutely perfect and the impact pad helps to cover any unseen issues in the base. The sand fill on these greens is round to help prevent compaction, but after years of foot traffic and different weather patterns having a pad under the turf will allow for the ability to hold a longer shot for a longer amount of time. This pad is only 12 feet wide and usually has a 50 ft. minimum length to the roll. If your green is less than 600 square feet, we still encourage you to take advantage of the support the pad will give your installation year after year. 5mm high and 12 feet wide.
