Putting Green Dreams
Always dreamed of owning property with a view? Just add a synthetic putting green and its now picture perfect. The M family had the same idea. With a beautiful piece of property with a great view, they decided to add a putting green to the yard.
The M family was looking for a low maintenance synthetic putting green that allowed them to hit and chip onto the putting green up to 150 yards out. Two tee boxes were placed outside of the putting green to allow for longer shots, for example from the fairway. The size of the putting green came to roughly 8000 square feet along with an 8000 square foot fairway. For Cascade Greens, this was a longer job and kept our guys busy!
Design and Installation
Our putting greens are Custom Design to fit all your wants and needs. Chris, our putting green designer, can draw what shape will fit best in your area and fit your needs. Chris was asked to design the green specifically to allow short and long shots to be hit onto the synthetic green. He designed this like you would a normal golf course due to the length of shots and the size of green the family wanted. He also chose our super shot putting green turf specific to the needs of the green. Each of our putting green turfs have their own specialty use and Chris is just the guy to recommend the right turf for the right job!
All putting greens get a base of 3/4″ open gravel to provide the best drainage. After the open gravel, it is topped with a layer of 1/4″ minus to allow for contour and grading of the putting green. Once gravel is laid it is compacted and contoured just right. The contouring of the gravel is a detail heavy process as it gives the base shape and roll of the turf. You get to be involved every step of the way!
With all the putting turf laid, all that was left was infilling sand traps. No putting green is complete without a few obstacles. Each of the sand traps was also installed with drainage to deter any water pooling during the wet season. With the job complete, the M family was able to enjoy their brand new putting green with a view!
