Choosing Nylon Putting Greens or Polypropylene Golf Greens

Polypropylene Golf Greens – Nylon Putting Greens

CALL TODAY 978-250-5996

Doug Preston of DP Turf MA gives us his overview on why Polypropylene putting greens are a better choice over nylon.

“I have used both surfaces for outdoor installations and have truly found that the polypropelene is more adaptable to installing.  Practice wise, it offers a more enjoyable surface to chip, pitch and hit shots into. When using the nylon surface and hitting chip or pitch shots the golf ball will bounce and roll out, the polypropelene will stop on a dime. It reacts just like a real green.”

What about the speed are they the same?

“The putting speed of a polypropelene can have a much faster stimp reading compared to a nylon. A nylon surface will be between 9.5- 10 on the stimp meter and a polypropelene will be able to reach 11-12. That is one of the main reasons why some PGA tour players are using our polypropelene surface. The polypropelene surface resembles the speed of the green out on their tour stops.  Overall, through all of my golf experiences, I know the polypropelene putting green looks and reacts more like a real golf green when compared to nylon.”

New England Custom Golf Greens

Putting Greens

Backyard putting greens from DP Turf have brought the game home, quite literally, for countless golf enthusiasts nationwide. In the process, we’ve managed to enhance both their game and the value of their home. On added benefit however, has to do with the positive effect installing our synthetic turf can have on the environment. Not many people know it, but mowing and maintaining natural grass, whether it is a lawn or some other type of natural green area, can actually be environmentally unsound. And while no doubt it’s not the primary reason you’re considering installing a home putting green, it’s just one more positive element you’ll invoke by installing golf green of synthetic turf in your backyard.

So exactly how can your home putting green benefit the environment? It can do so simply by replacing the natural grass that came before it. The yard work we associate with natural grass lawns is, as it turns out, littered with environmental pitfalls you might never imagine. Using a gas lawnmower for merely an hour, for example, is the equivalent of gassing up the car and embarking on a 100 mile trip. And though you may or may not know what hydrocarbons are, you’re releasing them into the atmosphere every time you mow. And when you do, they reappear above you as smog. And we haven’t even mentioned the water – some 25 gallons per square foot of lawn – that most of us squander on our lawns without a second thought.

All issues which, if not eliminated entirely depending on the rest of your yard, can certainly be significantly reduced when a backyard putting green is the focal point of your landscape. Let’s not kid ourselves. Nobody installs a DP Turf Southwest Green to save the environment. They do so to experience the convenience of playing the game they love, whenever the please, in the comfort of their own backyard. But as added bonuses go, the fact that our greens are environmentally friendly is a pretty fine one indeed.

Discover what so many have discovered before you and what more and more golf fans like yourself are discovering every day. Namely, all the great ways a DP Turf Southwest Green installation can bring a sense of convenience to your golf game and a sense of uniqueness to your backyard.

Backyard Putting Greens Make Practice A Matter Of Convenience
Often times the difference between a well-rounded golfer and a one-dimensional hacker is the ultimate equalizer in golf circles: the short game. DP Turf knows a little about the critical nature of the short game, and even more about how to excel at it. That’s why the savviest golfers are bringing their short game home with them courtesy of one of our backyard putting greens. A home putting green made from the finest synthetic turf… on the market eliminates excuses and promises to shrink your handicap through the force of sheer convenience.

Consider your typical routine when it’s time to hit the practice green. Now throw it out the window. With a golf green to call your own you’ll instantly eliminate your routine and begin a new one consisting solely of walking out your back door. No more loading up your gear and navigating through traffic only to pay unneeded fees at the nearest practice facility. Installing outdoor putting greens is quick and easy, but not as easy as it will be to access the game you love at a moment’s notice. Often times the difference between good and great is one’s will to put in the practice time. In terms of your short game, the will to practice will only be surpassed by the ease of which you’ll be able to. Your game can only benefit as a result.

The benefits of installing a backyard green go beyond the ones you’ll see in your game. Consider for a moment not only the aesthetic value one will add to your backyard but also the increased market value it’s certain to bring. Share your new toy with those closest you, and make your backyard a desired destination for family and friends. And when it comes time for maintenance you’ll be reminded of the greatest gift of all… the fact that there is none. No mowing no watering, no fertilizing, ever. Just a pristine green 365 days a year on which to practice the game you love.

If you’re serious about the game of golf and you don’t mind doing the work to become better, it makes sense to bring the game home with you. Make your backyard the cornerstone of your game while adding value to your home in a unique and exciting way. It’s within your reach, and just out the back door, with a little help from DP Turf.

Backyard Putting Greens

Home Putting Greens

For the golf enthusiast, what happens on the driving range is crucial to what will happen when they tee it up for real. The last thing they need is the inaccurate, ineffective, and frustrating feel of hitting off of a mat. While mats are standard in many practice facilities, Southwest Greens would like to remind you they aren’t the standard. Make your practice facility stand out and provide a realistic driving setting with our custom tee lines… Made from the finest synthetic turf on the market – and the same turf used for our backyard putting greens – our tee lines provide the true feel of the tee box and a setting in which to truly work on one’s game.

Southwest Greens has taken short game practice to a new level by bringing the home putting green to neighborhoods nationwide. Now we’re helping your customers take their long game to further and more accurate distances. Tee lines eliminate the lack of distance and accuracy associated with standard golf mats. The very least a golfer should expect from his or her practice facility is a realistic feel, and because our tee lines look and react like the real thing that’s exactly what they’ll get. Our lines allow players to place regular tees directly into the hitting surface, enabling a truer feel at contact and an accurate assessment of their long game.

Tee lines from Southwest Greens bring the added advantage of maximum durability. They are simply perfect for heavy traffic areas, and if ever there was a heavy traffic area then a driving range would certainly qualify. Each tee line is built to last from 10 to 15 years, and because your tee lines are made from synthetic turf there will be minimal maintenance involved. Imagine no watering, no mowing, and no replacing divots ever again. Such dependability will go a long way in providing your customers with a practice experience they can build upon for maximum results.

Help maximize those results with tee lines that adhere to the old adage practice makes perfect. Make certain your driving range is outfitted with synthetic tee lines that embody the look and feel of natural grass. By doing so, you’ll make certain the point of contact with those using your facility is as much of a hit as the tee lines they’ll be teeing off of.

Golf

Golf Courses

DP Turf

Golf courses are the fastest growing segment of the Southwest Greens golf product line. There are many issues that face small municipal golf courses, driving ranges and training facilities. One of the major issues is water. Water is more and more becoming a scarce resource in many parts of the world and golf courses may not be spared from the restriction of its use.

Furthermore, maintenance expense issues have become more prevalent as maintenance “know-how” and maintenance “funds” may be at a shortage. Southwest Greens golf greens and tee lines are aesthetically pleasing year round with a true playing surface continuously. There are many aspects of a synthetic golf course construction project that must be planned for to ensure the synthetic golf greens and tee boxes last the test of time and provide an acceptable return on the upfront spend that is outlaid.

Southwest Greens has completed projects for Nike Golf, John Smoltz, Stavely Municipal Golf Course plus many more

Championship Putting Courses

Want to give the golf putting experience without your amenity looking like mini-golf? Try our Southwest Greens Championship Putting Course product line. Hotels and cruise lines such as the Westin Regina in Los Cabos, Mexico, the exclusive Shore Club in Miami, the Pointe Hilton Squaw Peak in Arizona, and carnival Cruise Lines have all installed Southwest Greens putting courses and greens for their guests to enjoy with a “golf” feel and not a “indoor/outdoor carpet” feel.
