Installing a Synthetic Turf Putting Green in Your Backyard
Are you a leisure golfer or professional golfer? Pro golfers will require a different level of play and system than a golfer that golfs for leisure. A higher level of golfer will typically require premium installation skills, as well, so remember to choose an installation partner that has experience in creating the type of system you desire.
Installing putting green turf in your backyard is a steadily growing trend, and is a convenient way to add some practice to your everyday busy schedule. Imagine the extra practice you will be able to squeeze into each week if you have the convenience of your putting green. The benefit of cutting strokes off of your game due to the added hours of practice that you will be able to now spend practicing will turn you into a real pro.
Your yard will look great in the process and no mowing is a plus for sure!
Differences Between Professional Greens and Recreational Artificial Turf Putting Greens Chipping – On a recreational putting green, the chipping distance is much shorter because there is less cushion layer for the ball to grab onto. There is also less sand present. The ball can bounce off of the green if you are chipping from too far away. On a professional style putting green, the chipping distance is 4 times further than a recreational putting green.
Cost – A Professional putting green often costs between 20-50% more than a putting green made for leisure. The reason for that is the amount of infill, labor, and overall detail on professional-style greens.
Maintenance – Synthetic turf putting greens that are used for leisure are easier to maintain. On professional putting greens, the turf needs to be rolled extensively before finishing the system. Your installer will know the proper technique for this process. The more maintenance, rolling and ball play on your greens will make a tighter and much smoother surface.
