Each green is designed with your properties natural surroundings in mind. When finished, your putting green will fit perfectly into your properties existing landscape.
HGA’s synthetic turf looks and plays exceptionally well due to our expert installation techniques. A great golf green begins with a great foundation. The sub-base of every green is vital and is the mirror image of the playing surface above it. The base, which is comprised of 6 inches of compacted stone, must be carefully graded and compacted.
On top of the compacted stone, a 1 inch layer of fine stone-dust is added and smoothed out to almost resemble concrete. The compacted rock base and stone-dust are totally porous and drain water exceptionally well. After the levels, contours and undulations of the foundation are tested for a true roll, the cups are installed into the base of the putting area.
Shortly thereafter, the synthetic turf is installed over the foundation, and silica is carefully brushed into the turf. Simultaneously, the fibers are manipulated in order to direct the tips of the turf in a manner that will produce the truest roll possible. Up to 8 lbs. per square foot of silica is added to the turf until the desired level. In addition, up to 1/8 inch of special black and green top dressing is added for aesthetic purposes.
Various types of rollers are then used to flatten the exposed tips of turf, in order to give the golf ball proper playing characteristics. Finally, the holes are cut and the cups are installed. After installation of the putting green is complete, the playing characteristics of the green are given one final test, and if necessary, any fine tuning will be completed and your putting green will be ready for practice.
