Mat was super keen for a realistic golf green for his farm. He toyed with the idea of a real green for a while, only to realise, like I did, that real grass takes a lot of time and money. The upkeep of a fully playable real live green is almost unbelievable – it’s almost a full-time job and I now have a much better appreciation for all those green keepers out there. Unless you 100% know what you’re doing or you have a huge budget, synthetic grass is a much better alternative.
Mat wanted a green of approximately 200 square metres and a bunker. There is a large fringe at the front which will be a terrific for short game practise and also aid in approach shots.
The other thing to notice is the appearance of a lot of sand on the green. It’s actually Profill and Bruce was delayed due to rain. Once the weather improves and things dry out, the Profill will be brushed fully into the synthetic grass, leaving a really nice green grass finish. We will update later with some completely finished images, but here are a range that shows a Supreme Green from start to newly completed.
