Sand Filled Turf
This material can be installed on aggregate or concrete. The material used for these greens is called polypropylene, which is another word for plastic. The fibres do not have memory built into them and can not stand up by themselves. To get these fibres to stand upright you have to add between 7-12 pounds of fine silica sand to keep them in position. As you can appreciate, this amount of sand will blow, wash or shift and sand filled greens do require some maintenance.
Nylon turf can be installed on both aggregate base and concrete base. Nylon putting surface has a memory burnt into it and therefore the fibres stand up by themselves. Since these fibres stand independently you only need to add a small amount of our exclusive ceramic top dressing. You only add the ceramic if you feel the need to speed your green up or if you are going to hit longer chips into your green. Nylon will not need any infill the roll out speed is 8 – 14 on the stimp meter.
Our fringe comes in different lengths and density, the longer 40mm fringe gives the impression of playing out of the rough as the ball sits deeper in the pile whereas with the shorter pile the ball sits on top of the fringe.
Synthetic Putting Greens
Why is the speed on your green important? Top teachers in the world, say you should practice on a facility that is slightly faster than the course you play regularly. This helps you to purify your putting stroke and helps you make more putts. Our Nylon rolls at 8 – 14 on the stimp meter on the roll out which means when you open the roll of turf and have not done anything to it you will have a 8 -14 on the stimp meter. Most natural golf course greens average around 8 – 14 on the stimp meter. Our putting surfaces are designed to match those averages.
