How Can I Help You?
If you've got questions you're in the right place. Below are some of the most important and regular questions I receive. If you have something that's bugging you or isn't covered, then give me a tingle (my direct number is 0403372261) and I'd be (Cameron) happy to sort you out.
A: We have three main products:
1. Platinum Golf Green - this beauty is the best money can buy and size typically starts at 70m2 and goes up from there. We use the absolute best grass there is, a special underlay system and a unique infill. On top of this, we work with you closely to give you the ultimate in design, so your golf green becomes your pride and joy. Starting price from $20,000
2. Executive Golf Green - these greens are for your typical backyards. They utilise our amazing backyard golf green grass that putt really well and you can still chip and pitch from around 15 metres. Green size goes up from 20m2.
3. DIY - we've pioneered the development of the synthetic golf DIY market. We have created a golf grass that is easy to install and still gives you a premium playing surface. This product also comes with comprehensive DIY guide.
Finally, there's also a custom option, which includes putt putt courses and almost anything else you can think of.
A: You bet it is. Synthetic grass technology has come a long way in the last 5 years and it is incredibly realistic. While it will never be the same as real golf greens, it's getting very close. So close, you may have trouble telling the fake grass from the real thing.
A: Yes, they are incredible. I'm a below scratch golfer and I've had my pro mates test them out too. I've never had anyone not impressed with these golf greens.
With proper installation and materials a synthetic green will give a true roll and even allow for the ball to spin and hold the green. Click here to see a sample of a green in action.
A: We offer full install and supply Australia wide. We have installed golf and synthetic grass in all states and regions of Australia. Personally, I'm in SE Queensland. If you're keen for a site inspection, please visit this page.
A: Again, it depends on the type of green you get installed. Some models require extensive servicing because the greens become scuffed and compacted. Supreme Greens require very little yearly maintenance, apart from some brushing to remove dirt and debris, weed spraying and maybe some blowing to keep them in working order. The best thing? With Supreme Greens you'll spend more time playing and using it and virtually no time repairing it. Note: you may need a more thourough service every 2-3 years to top up the infill and brush out any sand or other debris.
A: No, not with proper install. The green foundations must be laid correctly. Too hard and you'll struggle to stop the ball. Too soft, and you will leave pitch marks. Your perfect green should mimic a green at a top golf course, it will be firm to walk on, giving nice speed, but it will still allow the golf ball to stop, spin and check up. Here's an article that goes into more detail about pitch marks.
A: Yes. We have recently created a specialty DIY grass that makes self-install as easy as can be. This DIY grass is for smaller greens, around 50m2 and below, and simplifies the process because less infill is required and joining is so much simpler.
This grass still gives a beautiful roll and even allows for small chips and pitches to stop on the green. It's an amazing product that is set to become incredibly popular.
A: You are really only limited by your budget and imagination. Almost all shapes and designs are possible. You have to be mindful that any fancy shapes do result in wastage of product and may increase costs. For the most bang for your buck a square design may be best. Grass widths come in 3.66 metres - widths of 7.32, 10.98, 14.64 etc offer best value for money.
A: Yes! Absolutely. Fringe grass is an easy way to add some shape to your design and it gives you an area to chip from. Finally, the fringe grass is a cheaper way to increase the overall size of your green. And to be honest, a fringe just looks good and is a nice way to finish off your green.
A: Yes! This is what separates these greens from most of the others. You can chip, pitch and even hit full shots onto these greens. The ball will spin and stop - they are very realistic.
Best of all there are no pitch marks and very little maintenance. Keep in mind that these greens are firm, so you need to make good contact and create some spin for the ball to stop.
Here's an interesting article on pitch marks.
A: In my heyday I (Cameron) played off a plus 3 handicap. I still play to scratch and cannot believe how realistic these greens are. The balls roll really well (testing has shown the ball rolls better on our greens then normal grass).
The Supreme Green goes to the next level when you hit chips and other lofted shots to them. The grass has been designed to absorb the impact and allow spin to take effect. Compared to other synthetic golf greens, the Supreme Green grasses have no comparison.
The bottom line? They are incredibly realistic and offer all levels of golfers an environment to accurately practise their game and have years of enjoyment.
A: It's 3.71m wide. This is an important metric to keep in mind when designing your green. If you keep your green 3.71m, 7.42m, 11.13m or 14.84m wide etc you'll have less wastage.
On another note: the grass rolls generally come in 20m lengths but you can place an order for any metre length (2 lineal metre minimum)
A: Yes. I am selling more and more DIY grass to consumers who are using local installers to do the work. This way, you can be confident you're getting the very best grass and because you're going local, you'll get the very best install price. I can also provide the DIY guide to your installer. I am building up a database of installers all over the country, so please contact me to discuss.
A: The short answer is because I'm serious about delivering the very best golf grass products to my clients. I don't take short cuts. Ever! My team are onboard with my vision and we do our very best each day to bring the most realistic synthetic grass products to the Australian market.
I stand behind my products and offer a guarantee on all of them. The bottom line is, if you're not happy with your golf green, I'll do everything possible to sort the issues out. I don't stuff about and all products come with a guarantee.
I've seen synthetic greens before. They always seem too hard and fast for use, what do you say about that?
A: It depends on the type of grass used, the infill and the installation process. Our grasses are manufactured specifically for golf and been designed to be realistic and low maintenance.
If you're looking for the most realistic option available, then choose our Platinum full install option. We pride ourselves on delivering the very best golf green possible.
If your synthetic green is going into a smaller backyard and will only be used for putting (and maybe chipping) you can certainly get away with our Executive or even a DIY golf green.
In both instances, the grass has been designed NOT to get compacted and too fast. Yes, you'll need to do some minor maintenance to keep in perfect working order, but this time can be measured in minutes per month, not hours (or high cost).
A: An infill is important to place into the top of your putting surface. The infill gives the green its speed and also weighs it down so pins are almost always unnecessary.
There are 3 options when it comes to an infill.
- A white washed sand. This is the cheapest option and is readily available from any garden supply store.
- A kiln dried sand . This is a little bit more expensive but is a slightly better option than a white washed sand.
- Profill. This is our own proprietary infill and is usually only used on larger golfing greens.
Update: We have created an amazing new DIY product that allows for a white washed sand to be used for most backyard greens. Profill is expensive and can only be obtained from one supplier. A white washed sand can be obtained from any landscape supply store and is much cheaper. The DIY grass is ideal for those small backyard golf greens that haven't been created to have full shots hit onto them (but you can still hit smaller chips and pitches).
A: I spoke with the manufacturer of the grass and he says around 15-20 years with normal use. If you have a green that is under extreme use it might get down to 5-10 years, but this would be in rare situations, like a small practice putting green at a very busy public golf course. Normal backyard greens will last at least 15 years before you may need to consider replacing the grass.
A: Right out of the box, these greens run at approximately 10 on the Stimpmeter. They will quicken a little with use and when the green settles. But the highlight of the Supreme Green grasses is you can slow them down if you wish.
Also, if you want to increase the speed of your green, you can add more infill during the construction.
A: Yes, we can send you a sample of our golf grasses. Please visit this page and be sure to enter your full contact address.
Please note: The grass samples don't always tell you the full story. For a start, you can't putt on them and get a realistic feel (because there's no infill) for what you're getting. I send samples so you can see and feel the quality of the yarn, but they are not a putting surface until fully installed.
This is one of my biggest frustrations because cheaper, shorter pile grasses oftentimes look better as a sample but don't perform anywhere near as well as my premium golf grasses.
A: This is an almost impossible question to answer. Price will depend on your location, size of green and whether you're after full install or DIY. But to give you an idea, almost all full install golf greens start at $8,000 and the typical DIY green comes in at $1500 - $3000
Our Platinum golf greens start at around $20,000 and go up from there.
A: To take the next step please go to our QUOTE page. There is no obligation to take this step, we'll just ask you some more questions and give you a firm quotation. A member of our team will contact you shortly to discuss.
Alternatively, jump the queue and call me directly. My number is 0403372261 (business hours only please)
A: This is a good question. If you keep the design simple and you're not after a huge green then you shouldn't have any issues. Problems arise when clients attempt to get all fancy and tackle a huge green.
I have created a comprehensive DIY guide (with videos and detailed instructions) that can assist you with a self install green. Normally this guide sells for $149 but comes to you FREE of charge with any golf grass purchase.
My strongest recommendation for DIY is to keep your design simple (limit joins and cutting) and keep the size to under 75m2. If you have any questions please call me directly on 0403372261.
A: Yes, we install in all parts of Australia (there's hardly a region we haven't been). But please note: For these smaller greens you will be paying a premium. There's no economy of scale and because we send our trained installers, travel and accommodation costs may be factored into price.
Your other option is to look for a local installer who can do the install for you. This option is becoming more and more popular and we're very happy to work with your local guy.
