Endurant is named for its ability to endure many conditions. It's extremely popular for use on golf courses. So, it's common for golf course superintendents to ask, how does Endurant hold up to cart traffic? The Endurant turf colorants will last on the grass, but heavy golf cart traffic does take a toll on grass in general.
Much like overseeded turf or grass of any type, cart traffic can leave markings. Golf carts and traffic can degrade conditions when in high concentration. Scattering carts or spreading heavy usage over the area helps. The colorant will last but the grass can be damaged nonetheless.

When considering whether to use a grass pigment or grass paint, consider the current color of the grass. Pigments are generally applied to growing turf while paints are used on turf in some degree of dormancy. A grass pigment is used on actively growing green grass. If the grass is brown, dormant and/or no longer actively growing, then a paint is preferred. However, Endurant paints, including the most popular in the line, Endurant Premium, PR and Fairway may be used on any grass at any time.
