Golf is a game loved worldwide. Whether you treat golf as a relaxing outdoor activity, or as a serious sport, the more you play and practice, the better you will get. With a synthetic grass putting green, you can practice all year round, without spoiling the surface. You can even get one installed in your back garden! Allowing you to be able to practice whenever you want, with the added bonus of having an aesthetically pleasing garden space.
If you are a keen golfer, here are some of the benefits to a synthetic green.
Installing a synthetic putting green in your garden allows you to practice your short game. Many golfers choose to practice their long game more than their short game. Having a putting green in your back garden will allow you to practice more regularly, even if you are time-restricted. Allowing you to spend more time practising and less time travelling to and from the golf course, with the added benefit of being able to practice all year round, whatever the weather.
You will be able to play on ‘golf-style grass’, without the maintenance and upkeep of regular grass putting greens. Synthetic greens are specifically designed to enable you to hone your putting, chipping and short game. The synthetic turf putting green mirrors the natural golf surface, and many professional golfers have chosen to install synthetic putting greens in their own gardens to practice.
Better surface to practice
There are many factors that affect whether you can turn your garden into a natural grass putting green. The position of your house, the quality of the soil, how much sunlight your garden gets. As a result of any one of these factors, the grass in your garden may not be ideal to turn into a putting green. Then consider the maintenance and the possibility that your green may be trampled on by children, pets or spoilt by adverse weather conditions. Leaving you spending more time trying to keep the green in a playable condition rather than actually playing on it.
Many people would love to consider having their own natural grass golf green at home but the reality is even if you can afford the maintenance, the quality of the soil, the position it needs to be in the garden and the amount of daylight the surface will receive make a natural grass green unrealistic.
With a synthetic green, you don’t need to worry about the maintenance and upkeep that comes with a natural green. A synthetic green allows you to play on a great quality surface that has the same ball holding ability and characteristics as a natural grass green without the need to spend hours maintaining it.
Due to the high standard of installation and quality of synthetic turf, your putting green will look great all year round, no matter how much time you spend on it. Synthetic greens will allow for more intense use without requiring the mowing, hollow tining, top dressing and feeding regular grass would achieve the same appearance. You can play all year round, without worrying that your golf green will lose it’s visual appearance or disrupt your ball roll.
Not only will a synthetic turf golf green help you improve your game, but it will also help you to improve the appearance of your outdoor space. A well-designed, top-quality putting green is aesthetically pleasing and adds a landscaped feature to your garden.
If you would like to spend less time managing a putting green and more time playing on one then a synthetic turf green is the right solution for you. Synthetic greens do not require anywhere near the amount of maintenance as a natural grass green does. A synthetic green is playable all year round, without the need to keep mowing, watering and without the wear and tear that occurs on natural grass. The panels are free-draining, which allows natural groundwater penetration, meaning no free-standing water on your green, allowing you to get back out even if it has been raining.
Due to the advances in recent years, synthetic turf systems have gained acceptance in a number of other sports, including football, hockey and rugby and are now being widely used in the golfing scene. Synthetic greens offer the same benefits as natural greens in all aspects including looks, playability and feel. With the added bonus of less maintenance and ongoing cost, they are becoming increasingly popular amongst amateurs and professionals alike.
