Polypropylene Golf Greens – Nylon Putting Greens

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.”
