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.

or

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!

To learn more about how you can have a maintenance free year round green lawn or putting green at your Phoenix area home please call Southwest Greens of the Valley at 480-664-9417

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.

Southwest Greens of the Valley – Getting you a good roll on your winter putting greens

The science behind how Southwest Greens of the Valley can get you the roll you desire on your putting green.

The cool weather of the Arizona winter makes it hard to get a good roll on your putting green, so at Southwest Greens of the Valley in the greater Phoenix area, we always like to put a stimpmeter on your putting green to get the speed of your green to your specifications that you work for you.

The stimpmeter is like a yard stick where you put the ball in a slot at one end, with the other
end touching the green. As you slowly lift the stimpmeter up the ball will
roll off it. You then measure the distance that the ball rolled, (do it
in the flattest part of the green, no uphill or downhills). Repeat this 2-3 times
and average the distance. Repeat using the stimpmeter in the other
direction 2-3 times and take the average distance of all rolls.  You will then have
your stimp speed!

For example: One way 8ft—9ft—9.5ft = 8.83ft—–Opposite direction 7ft—8ft—8.5ft = 7.83ft
8.83ft + 7.83ft /2 = 8.33 stimp speed

Average stimp speed for Country Clubs in the Phoenix Metro area is around 9.5-10.5, The Masters in
Augusta Georgia probably has the highest of all tournaments, along with
the US Open. They stimp out around 12-13.

Southwest Greens of the Valley rolls your putting green like real golf courses. We use a 600lb Brutus
roller. After installing your green, we put an initial roll on it to get it to a 7.5-8.5 stimp. In the winter it’s harder to get it fast on the first roll, that’s why we ask you to let the putting green settle for a month after the first roll, and we’ll then come back out in about 3-4 weeks to put a final roll on
it to get it to a 9.5-10.5 stimp, or whatever speed you desire.

In the middle of the summer it’s easier to get it rolled to a 9-10 on the first roll
because of the sun and heat, which allows the blades to bend over and
stay that way.

Now you know the story behind green speeds and the knowledge behind every putting green that’s designed and installed by the professionals at Southwest Greens of the Valley, serving Phoenix, Scottsdale, Mesa, Tempe and the entire metro and suburban areas.  Call us today at 480-664-9417 for your complimentary consultation and estimate.
