How Southwest Greens of the Valley Designs Your Custom Putting Green

At Southwest Greens of the Valley in Phoenix, Arizona, we realize that there are many ways to design a putting green.

To better your putting skill, we try to design a putting green that will give you many rolls and breaks like you would find on a real golf course putting green such as:

  • Right to left putts
  • Left to right putts
  • Uphill and downhill putts
  • Most importantly, the long straight putt

We can build your putting green anyway you want it.  Yes, your very own customized putting green at your home!

Surrounding the putting green, our Southwest Greens of the Valley team, which serves the greater Phoenix area and suburbs, can install an apron consisting of our ELRT-Rec Turf, which is our one inch fairway turf, and we can use this for the entrance of your putting green just as you would see at country clubs in your area.  Outside of the ELRT-Rec Turf, we can install a longer turf 1 ¾” 0r 2” that would simulate tour rough.

How about making it even more realistic?

  • We can build grass or sand bunkers around the perimeter of your putting green.
  • We can build tee boxes with our ULTE-ultimate tee box turf that you see on driving ranges.
  • We can surround the tee box turf (ULTE) with our 1” fairway turf and 1 ¾” rough to give you three separate lies to chip from: tight lie, fairway lie, and rough lie.

Invite us over to your home or office to discuss the possibilities of your custom putting greens from Southwest Greens of the Valley.  Just use your imagination and we can build it!

What to lookout for when choosing artificial grass for your home.

What to lookout for when choosing artificial grass for your home


Buyer Beware! Artificial turf can contain unsafe heavy metals.

When Southwest Greens manufactures our turfs we use two types of yarn, and both free of heavy metals: polyethylene for our lawn turfs and polypropylene for our putting green turfs.

At Southwest Greens, the polyethylene and polypropylene yarns that we use in our products are made in the USA and none of the yarns carry any heavy metals, including lead, which has shown to cause long term health problems. Be aware that some companies do sell turf that contain heavy metals and it is highly recommended to avoid these turfs.  When meeting with your prospective turf business, we suggest that this is the first question you ask, and also demand to see the content label.

When you choose any one of the many turf styles from Southwest Greens of the Valley you can be sure that your children and pets will be safe from any dangerous materials.  Your only concern will be how to get them in the house for dinner!

A few notes on Polyethylene and Polypropylene:

  • Polyethylene which is used to make our lawn turfs is a fiber that is intended to stay rigid and erect over a long period of time to keep your lawn looking great for years.
  • Polypropylene which is used to make our putting green turf is a fiber that is meant to bend over and stay that way for a flat and smooth putting surface.
