Choose Your Turf

For a Golf Project

What are the most important factors when planning a putting green:

The 3 most important factors to keep in mind are:

  • Speed of the green – how fast does the ball roll on the stimp meter. Our series of putting green surfaces offer 9, 10 and 11 on the stimp meter. Depending on where you want your game to be (or go) you can choose the surface that best serves your needs.
  • Main purpose for the facility – does the golfer want to practice putting only or do they also want to practice little chip shots? By adding a collar (fringe) or even a 3rd cut of rough around your facility you will be able to include many types of chip shots from around the green. Adding any of these elements to your putting green will give you a much more complete practice facility.
  • Size of the facility – how much space is available? You can have a putting green of any size, there is no wrong or right size. However, if you want to get the most out of the practice facility, consider this: according to the top teachers in the world, the ideal facility should have at least 25’ – 30’ in length, this allows the golfer to practice the ‘lag’ putt as well as bump-and-run chip shots.
Why should I have a fringe (collar), around a putting green?

Choosing to install a fringe (collar), around a putting green is VERY important for the following reasons:

  • The fringe is authentic and golf correct.
  • The fringe allows your client to have a more complete practice facility, with the abilty to practice little chip and bump-and-run shots from this 2nd cut.
  • A fringe (collar), around the putting green will prevent any crawling weeds or running water from getting in-between the putting surface and the base, stopping these elements from damaging the base.

Too often a putting green is installed without the fringe (collar), leaving the golfer with an incomplete facility. Furthermore, the 2nd cut will protect the base from being compromised, eliminating the need for repairs.
