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!

We had a great time at the 2009 Memorial Tournament!  Thanks to all who stopped by our green.  If you made a putt, be proud!  I made the slopes difficult this year!

It is never too early to start playing golf!

We are pleased to announce that Southwest Greens and Nicklaus Design have been awarded the contract to provide our synthetic surfaces for use at the new indoor Varsity Golf Center at The Ohio State University.  The project involves retro fitting a 26,000 sq. ft. building to include offices, storage, video review and a 20,000 sq. ft. practice area.

At its completion, this will be the largest and finest facility in the country.

We’ll keep all the Buckeye fans posted on the progress!

Visit our demo green this week at the sixth tee entrance (Bogey Inn parking lot)!  We have teamed up with the Memorial Tournament to offer a chance to win tickets for 2010.  Make a putt, get an entry.  It’s that simple.  Or is it?  I did put some tricky breaks in the green, so bring your touch!  Hope to see you all….
