Playing golf during the winter months can be a problem for every greenkeeper and member of the ground staff. Winter tees and winter greens can be introduced to protect the summer tees and greens. Unfortunately the fairways have to be played on to allow a game of golf. A recent survey showed, that on an average golf course played during the winter, by an average number of players, the total area of divots taken out was equal to the size of a football pitch. This area has to be replaced in the springtime at great cost in materials and labour by re-turfing or divot mix.
Acceptable to golf's governing body, the MULTIMAT™ allows a game of golf to be played during the winter months as intended from where the ball lies but without divots. The patented design of the double sided MULTIMAT™ protects the golf course during the winter months from Tee to Green with the added advantage of consistent playing surfaces under all ground conditions from soft and wet to frozen hard. Used by many Golf Clubs throughout the UK and Europe, it has been designed by golfers for golfers with two playing surfaces to suit all types of player from beginner to expert. This method of playing off MULTIMAT™ during the winter months is becoming more and more popular with the added bonus of savings made through reduced course maintenance and increased revenue by keeping the course open more often in adverse winter weather. MULTIMAT™ IS RECOMMENDED FOR HEAVY PROLONGED USE THROUGHOUT THE WINTER MONTHS.
MULTIMAT™ allows the ball to be played from within a few inches of where it landed on the fairway. THERE ARE NO DIVOTS, NO GROUND MAINTENANCE and NO TIME WASTING. The playing surface is consistent even if the ground is soft and wet or frozen hard. If you wish to protect your grass tees in addition to your fairways, place MULTIMAT™ on the 1st Tee, push a tee peg into the hole near the front of the mat, place the ball on the tee peg and hit as normal. If you wish only to protect your fairways, tee off as normal without the mat. Walk to the fairway where the ball has hopefully landed. Place the mat at the side of the ball and line up the mat with the target. Place the ball on the mat near the front without a tee peg and hit the fairway shot as normal and so on until the hole is completed. The remaining holes are played in the same way.
THE COURSE CAN ALSO BE PLAYED APPROXIMATLEY 20% MORE USING MATS DURING ADVERSE WEATHER CONDITIONS WHEN IT WOULD NORMALLY HAVE TO BE CLOSED WITHOUT MATS. THIS PROVIDES MORE INCOME FOR THE CLUB BY WAY OF VISITORS GREEN FEES, DRINKS, FOOD AND PRO SHOP SALES etc.
• Grippers on both sides restrict mat movement during shots.
