Synthetic Putting Green Installation
Getting the base prepped is the most important step to our synthetic turf putting green installations. We are proud of our aesthetically pleasing and true roll putting greens and this is a main factor. We ensure every curve and contour is set at this stage. Here you see the base being roughly laid out.
The majority of our team of installers come from a golf construction background. This pivotal stage comes naturally to us as we know many sub grade parameters to ensure the final roll is exactly the way we intended before we lay the turf down. An example of this is knowing our NP50 putting surface, on average, runs at 10.5 on the stimp meter. This translates to a maximum subgrade slope of 3%, which satisfies all USGA green specifications and corresponds to about 8″ of break on a 4′ putt. Simply put, 3% at this speed ensures the ball will not continuously roll.
Once we are happy with the base, we wet the crush and tamp it down to get a perfect base.
Here, the putting sleeves are being positioned to make sure everything is in place before fully sinking them. If the team is happy with the green so far, they can continue to the next step.
They then sink the sleeves, and add a third medium to ensure a perfect roll. This is an exciting stage as we are now ready to start laying turf!
The synthetic turf has been laid down and the holes have been cut around the sleeves. It’s starting to look like a real green at this stage! Here you can see the team inspecting their cuts and ensuring everything looks perfect.
The final product looks great and the client was thrilled with their new addition to the backyard. If you want to Experience a Greener World, contact us today
