  • Tee Pads, whats too small?

    getting ready to start laying out some Tee Pads
    and I was thinking that 10' x 5' was big enough
    but the more I think about it, maybe its not
    6' x 12' might be where its at

    how big are the pads at shelton springs?

    Is this a full size course or a smaller pitch & putt style?
    Because run up area is what's in question here, at least to me.

    But I'd go 6x12 if area and cost are there.

        i'm not sure where the line gets drawn between "pitch & putt" and "full size"
        but, the holes are a 300', a 250', and a few 200ish', plus a shorty technical hole

          With holes in that size range I see now reason to have huge pads, honestly. Huge pads on small holes teach beginners bad habits!

            Most important Seal the pads

            40" is all you will ever need to for any tees width. length of hole determines it's length

            <400' 6-8 ft long is fine
            400-800 12 ft should be more then enough
            800+ I can't imagine a tee being any longer then 15 ft

            look out for sucker box's
            ones that point slightly off center of the intended hole design


            trick make sure the run up and run out are both level with the tee

              when I first started with this project
              I was thinking smaller would be better
              to help compress my run-up, so when I play some of these older courses I wont be having a hard time

              I never realized how big sheltons pads are until I started playing some other courses.

                i think that 4'x10' is the smallest that you would want to go. sheltons are the perfect size, even for some of the shorter holes its very nice to have the room to work with on the big pads. there is nothing worse than having to change your run up when you encounter tee pads that are too small.

                steilly has had this issue over the years of putting in tee pads that are way to small, and some of them actually got lengthened, but it screws your run up when you have to either step up on the tee pad to start your run up or try and shorten your steps so you dont end up off the front of the pad.

                in my perfect world 5' or 6' wide and 12 feet long would be the best tee pads money can find.

                whatever you decide, dont short change yourself now and have to lengthen the tee pads later.

                  im with TYVEK on this, I prefer the longer teepads because i like to get 3+steps in my run up. 5' wide and 12 long is where its at.

                    If the depth is 4" on average, the pads take around 3/4 of a yard

                      1 yard = 3 ft
                      1 cubic yard = 27 cube ft = 3 ft long x3 wide x3 deep

                      this instance: 1 tee pad = 5 ft x12 ft =60 ft square

                      then how deep/thick do you want it?
                      1ft thick(!)= 60 cube ft / 27 ft [per cube yard]= 2.22... yards per tpad

                      .5 ft thick: 1.11... yards per

                      .3 ft thick (otherwise known as 4" thick)= 2.22.../3 = .74 yards per
                      = 3/4 of a yard, what he said

                        Tester Tee Pads

                        on some of the holes, I am also not exactly sure where I want the Tee Pad

                        so.... I figured I would just build a temporary/test Tee Pad, on #1 to try a 10' x 5' out
