While Kafka Granite’s range of pathway products have proven successful for a variety of applications such as walkways, bike paths, driveways, and nature trails, Kafka Granite is now driving these same products to golf courses. When prestigious golf courses such as Whistling Straits in Kohler, WI, Erin Hills in Hartford, WI, and Hazeltine in Chaska, MN, were looking for a less obtrusive cart path to help maintain a natural look and feel on their course, they all turned to Kafka Granite. Kafka Granite’s pathways are an aesthetically pleasing and environmentally friendly alternative to hardscape. Kafka Granite offers two different materials recommended for golf course cart paths, which are both available in over 40 different colors.
Kafka Granite’s Stabilized Pathways blend an organic binder with decomposed granite, reducing mud, dust, and erosion while retaining a firm surface. Stabilized pathways are also permeable, allowing storm water to quickly drain back into the earth. Although stabilized pathways are much lower in erosion than a standard decomposed granite path, we do not recommend using stabilized pathway on slopes over 8%.
However, Kafka Granite’s StaLok Pathways are much more resilient and can be applied on even steepest of slopes. StaLok Paving Material combines decomposed granite with engineered polymers to create a non-permeable, but aesthetically pleasing, durable, and dustless pathway. As an added bonus, StaLok cart paths absorb the impact of stray golf balls, allowing golfers to more easily recover from errant shots.
With over 40 different colors of pathway aggregates and recycled materials, it is easy to match your current landscape or create natural and sustainable cart paths that are unique to your course. With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start thinking about renovations for your favorite golf course.
