PROJECT SPOTLIGHT: A Short Golf Hole & Backyard Putting Green in the Chicago-Area

Golf addicts will love this! Our wonderful client, Vaughn, is quite a golf addict himself. He is a member at Medinah Country Club and plays regularly, but now he is able to practice from the comfort of his own home. Vaughn desired a short golf hole in one area of his large St. Charles, Illinois property, and a second backyard putting green built in a separate area. GroTurf has designed many putting greens and short holes for residential and commercial use in the Chicago area and beyond. The co-owner and PGA professional, Brian, listens to our clients and executes a masterpiece that is their vision combined with his golf professional expertise.

GroTurf is able to deliver exceptional design and performance on a large scale. Imagine having the land available for the design and installation of a synthetic turf short golf hole, like Vaughn’s. We are able to execute artificial turf putting green projects like this because our team has the industry experience and background in golf construction, shaping, and undulation, which require expert design and installation techniques.

GroTurf is Chicagoland’s leader in creating expertly designed and executed residential backyard putting greens, short holes, and commercial golf complexes. We offer options and embellishments for a complete golfing experience, including fringe, 1st and 2nd cuts, bunkers, roughs, and tee boxes. We will incorporate specific elevations, tiers and undulation into your backyard putting green or short hole complex. The turf materials used by GroTurf are specifically engineered to have the truest roll and accommodate specific putts with particular breaks. Vaughn’s short hole is complete with a tee box, mini fairway with first and second cuts, two sand bunkers, and a 1600 sq. ft. putting green with several hole locations. 6800 sq. ft. in total.

On the other side of Vaughn’s St. Charles property, we installed a 1500 sq. foot putting green in a cozier space. A putting green of this size would fit in many typical backyards in the Chicago area. It has several hole locations as well as chipping circles. Because golf shots won’t be hit into this green, we had the option of using a different type of putting turf than the short hole. It requires no maintenance and is especially convenient for our Chicago winters with all the thawing and freezing. PGA teaching professionals and players in the Chicago area also find this type turf to roll very true as well.

GroTurf delivers a first-class putting green experience that blends premium quality materials, performance, durability, and aesthetic appearance. GroTurf is able to deliver extraordinary residential or commercial putting green design and performance on a large or small scale. Regardless of the size of your project, we pride ourselves on PGA-caliber design, materials, and craftsmanship.
