Testimonial from Eddie B.

“After getting various quotes and dealing with incompetency, I went with Putter’s Edge/Turf America to install my putting green.  I can’t be more happy with the quality, the design and the price. Putter’s Edge/Turf America really listened to what was important to me and exceeded my expectations. I would highly recommend Putter’s Edge/Turf America to anyone looking to install a putting green while increasing the value of their property.

Some thoughts on Nylon putting greens

Some thoughts on Nylon putting greens

The picture is not our putting green, but is reflective of the typical coloring you will get with a nylon putting green.

We have a pretty strong history in the use and experiences with nylon putting greens.  There is no doubt that nylon is a highly durable material, has many appropriate uses, and a fresh, new nylon putting green looks and putts very well.  I should know.  I got my start with nylon putting greens and the first green I installed was in my backyard and was nylon.  This putting green was absolutely gorgeous when it was first installed in the summer of 2006.  It was an American-made product and was supposed to last for 15 years.

Nylon outdoor yarn is a fantastic material when new, and it’s very strong.  However, it’s more porous than polypropylene or polyethylene and tends to retain odor as a result.  The biggest problem with nylon greens is that they look beautiful (although darker) when installed, but they tend to change color and break down under our intense Arizona conditions.  Within less than 3 years, my putting green became a chalky blue-gray color and the tufting rows became very pronounced, eventually creating troughs that would capture the ball similar to a bowling green alley.  In general, nylon greens are much darker and you can see that by a quick search on the internet.  The biggest issue is that the material – even with significant UV protection – just doesn’t hold up and last in the Arizona conditions.  Indoors, a nylon putting green would work well.

We have experimented with nylon putting turfs from several manufacturers and the results have been similar in all cases.  Our experience continues to conclude that polypropylene based putting turfs are far superior in our intense Arizona conditions.

Dave A. came to us with an existing older green at his rental property in Las Sendas.  His green was more than 10 years old and was a nylon putting green.  We have experimented with nylon greens in the past, but have concluded they simply don’t hold up well in the Arizona heat.  And we are reminded of that from time to time with projects like Dave’s.  With this turf replacement, we did not alter the shape of the green, but we did some minor reinforcements on the putting green subbase and we eliminated one cup to create more usable putting space.

“Monte,

I just wanted to email you to let you know how happy I am with the final results of our putting green and turf installation.  Todd and his team were very detail oriented making sure that the final product looked beautiful.  I could not be happier.  You delivered on schedule and exactly as per your original quote.  Thanks again for the great product delivered with great customer service.

Regards,

Dave A.”
