Default Plastic Paver pads for Tee Pads?

Anyone ever see a course that used "grass pavers" for tee pads? They are plastic grid panels or rolls that lay on top of a thin gravel or rock base and then is filled with more gravel. They are less labor intensive since you don't need to dig as deep or use as much rock base. There are several brands out there. I was looking at HexPave. The same company has a heavy duty version called EasyPave. Another company has a rolled version called NDS Tufftrack Gravel Paver. Cement pads are a very difficult option in the middle of a hilly forest.

I've seen them on maybe a handful of courses, but very few. I think Ashe County had them on some of the Hillier holes, which makes sense.

It's much harder to install concrete tees in very hilly, heavily wooded terrain. Some of those tee locations just aren't easily accessible to install concrete... at least not without significant expense. Much easier to install pavers like you describe in such a setting.

When properly installed, they're pretty good. I can't say how durable they are, but I'd imagine they do all right in that regard.

I’ll say I’d rather have a good crushed gravel pad over a rubber pad or a too small concrete pad. The field turf tees I have played have been awesome, so don’t ignore those as a possibility.

I would think the long term issue might be maintenance? Installation might be harder with concrete, but is it a “pay me now or pay me later” choice? Will you just end up redoing work every 3 years? Something to consider beforehand.
