(must be a real pain to keep the dirt out of the turf and the rubber pellets out of the dirt)

edit -- actually I think i am misremembering that. It's been a couple years since I was there.  Looks like only the mound is dirt.  But something like 15' to 18' sounds good to me!

 

 

So going by the areial view and using Google Earth.. I measured it to be 27'x27 on the straight sides and then 13' to the cut off corner from each straight side and then 17' to connect those two parts. It seems kind of big to me but I know Google Earth is pretty accurate.
