I am just weighing options. My understanding is to be installed properly, they should be contained and anchored atop sand and gravel. I exchanged e-mails with the Fly pad guy, but he was only moderately helpful. I wanted to see for myself. CP has expressed that they might be willing to do some Fly pads, but they need to be installed properly so they are secure and do not erode over time.
However, the park has also said that pads (concrete or o/w) that cause extra trimming or maintenance will not be permitted (thus if the extend above the surface of the ground). I am getting all of this second or third hand and am talking to Dave Kenney now to see about setting up a formal meeting with FCP&R.
Thus, I was hoping there might be a course that had anchored/properly-installed Fly pads that I could go see and play on. I do not want to get more and just throw them on the ground to be eaten up by lawn mower blades and covered with dirt and such. I nosed around the PDGA site briefly and talked to a few folks, but first-hand knowledge goes along way.
So, anyone ever played a course SC, NC, TN, AL, that has pads installed as described above, not just tossed on the ground????
