Technological advances in the last 5 years have allowed manufacturers to adequately develop synthetic materials that are now being used regularly to replace natural grass. The material used in addition to installation advancements have now given rise to synthetic golf courses that are as good if not better than a natural grass product.
Enduroturf Synthetic Putting Greens
All functionality of natural grass greens have been replicated (including speed, trueness of accuracy, shot holding capability and shaping characteristics) to the point where several courses around the world are already relacing natural greens with synthetic ones.
However – the main area of interest are the savings achieved through reduced maintenance and water consumption. Imagine if you will a green that when being constructed requires minimal drainage, no need whatsoever for irrigation (water or plumbing) and never needs to be mowed. A synthetic green that always looks in perfect condition, acts as realistic as a natural grass green with virtually zero ongoing running costs.
A traditionally accepted model is that synthetic putting greens pay for themselves in as little as 7 years when compared to natural turf greens (based on normal maintenance costs of running a natural product) and when you factor that they have a lifespan of between 12-17 years, you will see the Return On Investment is quite substantial. Enduroturf can provide a sample ROI.
Enduroturf Synthetic Target Greens:
For driving range purposes Enduroturf synthetic target greens provide an inexpensive long term opportunity to boost your image whilst providing a high class offering for clients. For the same reasons mentioned above, synthetic target greens offer you a cost saving alternative to that of natural greens. Made from slightly lesser grades of synthetic material, the target greens “behave” just as a natural grass green, with the same minimized ongoing maintenance costs.
Enduroturf Synthetic Fairway Lawn (Turf)
To provide the fullest level of reduced maintenance and water consumption, a fully synthetic “fairway” grass is available for use on driving ranges. In much the same way you would have natural grass in the field of play, we can provide for you an option of completely replacing all natural grass with specifically designed synthetic turf in the ball catchment area of the driving range. This product once installed would completely eradicate the need for watering, mowing, irrigation systems, machinery, weeding, spraying, etc… and reduces staffing levels dramatically. The fairway grass in conjunction with synthetic greens provides an always immaculate looking facility, with virtually zero maintenance. Ball collection can even be automated with careful design and construction.
Enduroturf Driving Range Hitting Turf
Throughout the USA and Europe, traditional driving range mats are a thing of the past. Enduroturf offers you Enduro Tee, a remarkable natural feeling and performing hitting surface. Customers can play a shot off a synthetic surface that acts and feel just fairway conditions.
A traditional golf mat requires you to hit the ball “off” the surface, which doesn’t replicate fairway conditions.
Enduro Tee allows customers to hit “through” the ball. With our unique sand and rubber filled synthetic system, customers can replicate fairway shots and even take a divot, all without the mess and hassle of re-turfing, watering and ugly brown patches.
Enduro Tee allows driving ranges to reduce the space needed for hitting bays, freeing up space for other uses and also reduces the overall operating cost through the savings achieved in maintenance, watering, re-turfing etc…
We would welcome the opportunity to discuss any potential projects you might have.
