Why Synthetic Greens instead of Real Grass Greens?
Installing a real grass green is costly, but its maintenance and upkeep is much more expensive and time consuming. Maintaining a real green requires the purchase of a precision mower, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers etc. You have to learn how to apply the correct amount of chemicals to maintain a healthy green, and it is still not 100% sure that your green will survive. You must also have good climate conditions to keep your green looking healthy. We have heard many golfers say they spend more time maintaining their real grass greens than practicing on them. Installing a real green can become overwhelming for someone who just wants to practice his/her short game.(Back to top)

What is the difference between All Pro turf and putt-putt golf turf?
Our turf is specifically manufactured to simulate a golf course green. We achieve this by filling the turf with top dressing such as Black Beauty coal slag. First, the coal slag will control the speed of the green. More slag means faster ball roll, less means slower, and the fibers will not mat down over time. Second, it helps to cushion and hold the ball when chipping to the green. When properly filled, All Pro turf will provide an average Stimpmeter speed of 9 or 10. With this filling process, you can achieve the same true ball roll and holding characteristics as your favorite course green.(Back to top)

How much does an All Pro Green cost?
When all materials are bought, a 12' x 30' foot green costs about $5.00 per square foot or $1,837.50. Authorized distributors charge about $12 per square foot of green and up. This is comparable in cost to a premium set of golf clubs or half the price of a hot tub. (Back to top)

How long does it typically take to install a green?
Small greens, such as a 12' x 30' can be installed in one day. Larger greens such as a 24' x 30' can be installed in two days. It depends on the weather and how quickly the sub-base is prepared.(Back to top)

Do I need special equipment to install a green?
No. Most of the tools needed for an installation are common household items like a shovel, rake, push broom, etc. However, you will need to rent a mechanical plate compactor. These are available at any local tool/equipment rental facility for a nominal cost.(Back to top)

Can the effects of Mother Nature harm the green?
No. Our turf is UV- treated polypropylene and polyethylene hybrid fiber that can withstand all inclement weather conditions.(Back to top)

Will this product hold an approach shot from 100 yards or more?
Absolutely! That is why we manufacture two products: a half-inch turf and 1-inch turf. The true ball roll and putting characteristics are the same for both. The 1-inch turf holds shots from a distance of 150 yards or more. Aside from depth, the difference between the two is the amount of coal slag needed. Twice as much is needed on the 1-inch for proper holding ability. The more coal slag in the green the better it will hold approach shots. (Back to top)

What type of sub-base is required for the installation?
The sub-base preparation is the same as for a brick-paver patio. We recommend crushed stone that is unwashed and is 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch minus. This means the stone is not bigger than 1/4 inch or 3/8 inch. You can find this at a local rock quarry. (Back to top)
