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

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!

Cleveland Golf Show Wrap Up

February 24, 2009

Monday, February 23rd…2009

Thanks to all of you who were able to stop by our display and green at the X I Center in Cleveland this weekend.  We saw some old friends and met some new ones, too.  We are pleased to be able to attend shows like these to meet people who share our passion for golf.  I never tire of watching the reactions of people who haven’t before seen a Southwest Green.  As a former PGA TOUR professional caddie and mini tour player, I know exactly how they feel when they hit that first chip and it checks like the real thing…

Pin Sheets

December 19, 2008

PGA TOUR Players are very gifted athletes.  But, the secret to their game is ball control.  Every player I have worked for could hit just about any club in the bag to within a few feet of their intended target when they swung the way they wanted to. That could mean a three-quarter five iron that goes 183 or a full out one to land at 202 or any number in between.

So, giving the player the most precise yardage on any given shot is extremely important.  This is why we have pin sheets.  When used in conjunction with a yardage book, a caddie can give his player the detailed kind of information he needs to execute a successful shot.

A pin sheet has four important components:  Hole number, green depth, pin depth from the front of the green and pin relation to the closest side of the green.  After the round, the used sheet looks like this:

When put all together, you can retrieve numbers to the pin, carry over bunkers or humps, room (number of yards) behind the pin, where to place the shot for the best putt, etc.  I just wish I had these when I play!

Nicklaus Design

December 11, 2008

We are pleased to announce that Southwest Greens and Nicklaus Design have signed a deal to remain Corporate Partners through 2011.

Although we have our own in-house design team, choosing Nicklaus Design to design your synthetic green has been a great option for years while working with Southwest Greens.  Please keep this in mind when it is time to build your green.
