Southwest Greens of Ohio would like to welcome the newest member of the Southwest Greens family, LPGA Hall of Famer Annika Sorenstam.

“I chose Southwest Greens for our artificial green and playground surface because of the quality of the product and the superior customer service. I love that the artificial grass is safe and soft enough for our daughter to play on, is environmentally friendly and requires very little maintenance. They are simply the best in the industry.” – Annika Sorenstam

Greetings!  It’s been too long since our last post!

Coming this weekend, the Southwest Greens crew will travel north to the great city of Cleveland.   Saturday, February 6th begins the Cleveland Home and Garden Show at the XI Center.  The show runs through the following weekend.  We will have a demo green to chip and putt on, as well as be available to answer any questions about our product…

If you have the chance, stop by and say “Hi.”  We always love to talk to people about golf!  Carl.

New Ohio Headquarters!!

November 6, 2009

Southwest Greens of Ohio is pleased to announce plans for our new Central Ohio Headquarters!

Next week we will be combining our current warehouse facilities in Hilliard and our office in Grandview Heights to a new location on the Northwest side of town.  The new building is situated on two acres near the SportsOhio site off Route 161 W.

Plans include the creation of a new practice green for our clients.

I’ll have more info as we go… Carl

Sometimes, you just have to sit back and reflect.

We love to build greens at Southwest Greens.  But why?

Nothing hits closer to home than seeing the smiles on the faces of families who know they have something special.

Let me introduce a budding young player in Bexley.  She plays in junior golf tournaments.  This year she has already won a tournament in her division twice!  Shot 47 for nine holes…  twice.  She is 11!

This is why we build greens…

Hamming it up on her new green!

Good luck, young lady!  We are rooting for you.

Southwest Greens of Ohio is a partner with Nicklaus Design.  On Saturday of the Memorial Tournament, we had the opportunity to meet with the founder of Nicklaus Design, Jack Nicklaus to discuss the design for the upcoming Varsity Golf Center project at The Ohio State University.  It was a great personal pleasure as a Columbus native to have this meeting!  When completed, this new facility will be the largest and finest in the country.  Go Bucks!
