“How many synthetic turf contractors or their installers actually understands golf?”
Over the years I have experienced synthetic turf contractors having to remove and replace entire putting greens all because the installers did not understand the placement of the putting green cups. Understanding the installation of the putting green cups can make or break your newly placed putting green.
Teaching the frontline installers that the putting green cup installation is the most crucial component of the putting green practice system. Below are important factors to consider when installing a putting green practice system.
• Surface around the 3’ radius line of putting cups is not smooth or flat
• Ball stoppage or misdirection at the 3’ radius line at putting green cups
• Sinking or upheaval of putting green cups
• Tilted flags
• Putting green cup at improper elevation to the putting green surface
“When putting green cups are installed properly, the only way a golfer can miss the hole is by needing more practice. Make sure he doesn’t blame the putting green installation for his miss”. Ask JW
