Yongin, South Korea — Golf gained popularity in South Korea during the COVID-19 pandemic as an option for people to stay active in the safety of the outdoors. It has remained a favorite sport among the citizens of South Korea is now the world’s third-largest golf market. New golf courses continue to spring up across the country, including the first two putting greens installed by SYNLawn Golf for the Jisan Golf Academy at the Jisan Country Club.
Constructing a Custom Green for Korean Golf Academy
To construct the custom putting greens, SYNLawn Golf installed approximately 10,200 square feet of Classic Pitch, the ideal artificial golf surfacing for practicing pitch and chip shots due to its superior ball roll performance and lasting endurance. The team also installed SYNLawn’s “Second Bounce” underlayment system to create realistic ball reactions for shots delivered from over 20 yards. This premium putting green was made to withstand the heavy foot traffic expected from the golfers at the Jisan Korean Golf Academy.
SYNLawn Golf also used more than 800 bags of high-performance top dressing from Envirofill to keep the turf performing better for longer and for additional antimicrobial protection.
A major benefit of using SYNLawn’s sustainable turf for the new green is that it will save Jisan Golf Academy money and resources since artificial turf requires no watering or mowing to keep it looking green and pristine.
SYNLawn Golf was proud to collaborate with Jisan Golf Academy to provide its members with a professional-quality golf green built to last for years to come.
