Southwest Greens of Ohio would like to thank the Cleveland State University golf teams for choosing us to refurbish their indoor practice facility.   Watch out Horizon League!

AFTER!

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.

Here are a few pics from Cleveland…

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.

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!

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…

Every so often during my visits to potential clients, I hear feedback that companies trying to compete with Southwest Greens of Ohio like to slam our green surfaces for requiring maintenance.

That’s like telling someone not to buy a Cadillac because you will have to change your oil every so often!

The truth is any residential green will require some attention to keep it performing at the highest levels.  At Southwest Greens of Ohio, we believe our maintenance program is integral to keeping our clients satisfied and happy with the investment they have made in their backyards.  We also feel that having our clients know we are invested in the long term, not just the installation phase, confirms our commitment to them and the products we employ.

We know you love your golf!  We do, too!  Isn’t it nice to know someone like that has “got your back?

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.
