Synthetic Putting Green FAQ's
Q.Why consider a putting green?
A. A putting green adds to the landscaping of your home, increases property value, affords an opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, improves putting skills, encourages young people to start golf at an early age and allows more free time for the working mum and dad.
Q Why should I choose an artificial putting green instead of a real grass green?
A. The main reason is the maintenance involved. Natural grass putting surfaces require constant maintenance and water plus the cost of the equipment and chemicals that are needed. Enduroturf synthetic greens require minimal effort to maintain and will last 10 years+ under normal circumstances.
Q Do you offer any warranties?
A. Product warranties are supplied by manufacturers and range from 5-7 years depending on your product choice. We also offer a 1-year labour warranty on all work carried out.
Q How far away can I hit shots from and expect a realistic holding capability on a synthetic green?
A. If you plan to hit shots from 5 metres or more, our premium sand-filled system will provide the same response on the green that you will find on any golf course.
Q What makes an Enduroturf synthetic green differ from a standard putt putt green?
A. Enduroturf uses a technique that utilises artificial turf with a 35mm sand filled + underlay system. The sand serves two purposes. Firstly, it makes the turf stand upright and secondly the sand helps to cushion and hold the ball when chipping to the green. Turfs that do not require much sand-fill are denser. Their fibres are spring set to resist matting and they basically have a true ball roll but lack the ability to hold a chip. These turfs traditionally are used in smaller areas where there is no room to chip, or they are used indoors.

Q. Can I request a certain speed, or change the speed of my synthetic putting green?
A. The Enduroturf putting greens are made to replicate PGA-level putting greens. You can therefore expect to get speeds of around 11 on the stimp meter. This speed is not variable. The greens will start outwith speeds of around 9-10 on the stimp, but with time and settling, the speed will increase to around 11.
Q How big should my synthetic putting green be?
A. This really is the “how long is a piece of string” question. Factors that must be considered are: what you plan to use the green for (just putting, chipping), size of the area available, access, budget, how many people will be using it at one time, how many holes do you want, and so on. There simply is no answer to this question. Each customer has different circumstances that must be considered – the best thing to do is call us. We can help you by starting to talk about the factors you will need to consider.
Q What effect, if any, does the weather have on your synthetic putting green?
A. We have customers in every climate imaginable from extreme heat to extreme cold. All of our synthetic turfs are very durable in all weather elements. You can expect them to last somewhere from 10-15 years under normal circumstances.
Q What are the advantages of your artificial putting greens products?
A. Affordable, little or no maintenance, permanent installation, weather resistant, year-round use, increases property value, and has warranty protection.
