The Alternative to a Rock Base Synthetic Putting Green
There are many steps involved in creating a synthetic putting green. Removal of existing grass and earth to a depth of 3-4 inches, checking for proper drainage, rock installation and compaction, and finally the installation of the putting turf itself. A bad sub-base equals a bad putting surface. There must be adequate room to make all this happen. What if you don’t have the adequate space needed in your yard for a successful installation? What if you don’t even have a yard at all? The pros at O’Neill’s Green Services have the answer. They have many alternatives to a rock base synthetic putting green to help you work on one of the most frustrating aspects of the game of golf, putting.
Tour Links Putting Green
With a Tour Links putting green the need for grass removal and a rock sub-base are eliminated. Tour Links is a system of interlocking rugged plastic panels that virtually go together like a puzzle. They can be installed over the existing ground surface of a backyard, deck, or even a rooftop. If more contour or “break” is needed, this can be achieved by using Tour Links contoured foam pad. Just place it on the ground first, and build the panels on top. It is simple to achieve a built-in custom look with Tour Links. First create a shape for your green. Then simply layout a pattern of Tour Links center panels and transfer the shape. Cut the shape out with a jigsaw and you are ready for turf. Or you could use any of Tour Links 6 different shaped panels to create a more traditional look.
There are many benefits to a Tour Links putting green. Whereas a rock base putting green is permanent, a Tour Links green can be moved to a different location if needed. Also if one wants to add a few extra holes to their green, it is possible with Tour Links. This can not be done with a rock base green.
