This diagram shows the general construction and layers of our outdoor synthetic putting surface. Once the dirt surface is shaped to desire we compact the surface and pin Geotextile Fabric over the complete synthetic golf green work surface. Next we create the shape and surface of the green by laying layers of Crushed Granite in finer grades until it resembles formed concrete. The granite surface it constantly soaked and compacted to insure the surface is uniform and solid. Once completed the surface acts as a solid slab of granite. A thin Foam Pad sheeting is then applied to the surface granite only where the putting green will be present. This aids in the putting greens ability to accept chips from a distance. Once the foam is all down the Synthetic Grass is applied to the foam surface. Silica Sand is now evenly applied to the surface of the putting green and brushed in to allow the fibers to stand up straight. After the sand is finished a top layer of Green Top Dressing sand is applied. This gives the putting surface a perfectly consistent and natural green tone. The fibers are finally brushed aggressively to soften the fibers and heavy compacted to provided perfect surface and stint speed.
This diagram shows the general construction and layers of our indoor synthetic putting surface. Once the flooring is cleaned and prepared a Shock Absorbing Foam Pad is applied to its surface. This foam pad allows indoor greens to accept chips naturally. The Indoor Specific Turf is then applied to the foam base. Depending on the synthetic turf selected some Silica Sand may be used to give the synthetic fibers base structure a firm footing. Most modern indoor specific turf do not require brushing or compacting of the fibers.
This diagram shows the general construction of our Slit Film Premier Golf playing surface. This is our highest performance synthetic putting green turf. Slit Film turf is unique because the fibers activate altering shape and structure to create a perfectly modeled golf playing surface. The fibers of this turf are finely slit and tightly spun to create a column of fine turf fibers. This allows the sand infill to fall to the base of the turf giving it a solid footing and loading it for "activation". As the green is filled with sand the fibers are brushed aggressively. This allows the fibers to unwind and spread, filling with sand as they do. After sand and brushing is complete we roll the fibers down with a heavy weight roller to further flatten and tune the playing surface. Once complete this creates a fine surface of small, soft, and evenly spaced fibers to provide perfect PGA golf stint speeds.
