I have taken a heap of photos of my golf green. A popular page is this one over here that shows the complete process from start to finish – also added images of the tee construction and turf being laid.

Clients enjoy the photos so here are some more of my completed green with descriptions. This article focuses more on the fringe grass because we’ve been getting more questions about it.

I took this photo on one of the cold mornings here in QLD. If you look closely you can see a mist above the green.

The left side of green. The fringe grass here is Australian GOLD. Note the small mound for effect

The right side. More mounds and the bunker is hiding to the right.

The full green. This is our preferred fringe grass because it’s excellent to chip from and offers better impact absorption for lofted shots (why I have it at the front of the green)

Another shot of the full green. You can see the different colours of the surrounds and the green proper.
green-front1
The front fringe grass:  it’s excellent to chip from and offers better impact absorption for lofted shots. It is slightly more expensive than our other fringe grasses.

The bunker fringe grass is Ideal Summer. It’s a longer pile and is perfect for the bunker surround. You can also chip from it – a bit like chipping from rough.

Further thoughts: Fringe Grass – This is an excellent surface to chip from while also giving better impact absorption for approach shots. I placed this grass on my front fringe, so any approach shots that come up a little short won’t bounce too hard. It actually works really well, effectively increasing the size of my green.

The actual star product here is the main green surface. This is our Supreme Green grass which is a 20mm pile grass. It’s made from Helix yarn that is the only golf specific synthetic grass on the market and made exclusively for Supreme Greens. It’s main benefit is that it has been designed to absorb the impact of lofted golf shots, allowing them to hit the green, then spin and come to a stop. Almost no synthetic green that I have seen has this ability.
