Whats the quickest, cheapest, easiest fix for slick tee pads? Current pads concrete with pea gravel.

Anyone ever played at Cedar Hill in Nashville and know what they used on their's? It was some type of glue with sand paper or something.

It's called Non-Skid paint, should be able to find it at lowes

They may not have adequately swept the semi-wet concrete.

I've always thought the rubberized asphalt stuff they make running tracks out of would be good, but I get into arguments with the "too much grip" crowd.

The pads were made with a pea gravel mix and over the years has resulted in pea gravel being exposed. It's like ice when wet. I don't think washing them would help. I'm looking for a semi-permanent fix.

I'll look into the non-skid paint. It would definately need a bunch of grit and texture to work in this instance.

Played at Fontana Village on the rubber track stuff that Innova put down. It was definately grippy, but also very cushioned. I liked it, but not sure what it would do to your knees after many rounds.

If you're talking about the rubber stuff they use to make playgrounds now, I also think it's too soft. The older, harder stuff that replaced cinder on running tracks in the 80's is what I'd use.

Or you can superglue moldy carpet squares to the cement like they do in Mississippi.

I still have a scar from one of those old slick Forest pads that the erosion has left 6 inches higher than the surrounding area.
