Fairport, NY — Many golfers dream of playing on the world-renowned 12th Hole at Augusta National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, which is the home of The Master’s Tournament. One golf aficionado hired SYNLawn Western New York to make his wish come true by installing a backyard par-3 hole course inspired by the acclaimed green.
Recreating an Iconic Par-3 Golf Green
SYNLawn Western New York was selected out of multiple landscaping companies in the area to help construct a replica of the iconic 12th Hole at Augusta on the expansive residential property surrounded by wooded acres. The homeowner was impressed with SYNLawn’s premium turf products, close relationship with the Pelz Golf team, and expertise in creating professional quality custom golf greens for residential and commercial projects like the award-winning 12th Hole at Augusta replica for a cybersecurity group in Kansas City.
Recreating this as a par-3 hole course was no easy feat. The SYNLawn Western New York team worked closely with a variety of designers and contractors to bring the homeowner’s project to life, including using the best technology available to help construct the shape of the green surrounding turf cuts and elevations.
SYNLawn Western New York installed a total of 29,685 square feet of the following premium artificial turf products to build the authentic replica:
- 9,435 square feet of SYNPro 70, an aesthetically pleasing turf that provides unmatched quality and high performance at an affordable price.
- 9,330 square feet of SYNAugustine X47, which is the finest quality turf available on the market due to its unmatched softness and durability.
- 4,635 square feet of SYNTipede 243 that is valued for its strength and resiliency. It’s also the cleanest and safest turf available since it’s made with Super Yarn™ technology that provides heat reflective, anti-static, Sanitized® and non-abrasive grass blades.
- 3,975 square feet of Classic Pitch, a putting surface known for its ball roll performance and lasting endurance. It’s an ideal product for practicing pitch and chip shots.
- 1,500 square feet of SYNSport White, which is the perfect grass variety for golf lovers expecting high-performance results.
- 480 square feet of Tee Strike, an artificial tee-line grass that offers excellent resiliency and denseness. It supports a standard golf tee for a natural, true-to-life feel that golfers appreciate.
- 330 square feet of Precision Putt on the bridge, which is highly valued by golfers for its superior performance and ball control. It delivers the most realistic putting experience available.
Upgrading the Property with Sustainable Turf
In addition to constructing a replica of the homeowner’s dream course, SYNLawn Western New York also helped make the homeowner’s property more environmentally sustainable by using eco-friendly products. SYNAugustine X47, SYN Pro 70, and SYNSport White are all USDA Certified Biobased and made with SYNLawn’s exclusive EnviroLoc+™ backing system that replaces up to 60% of petroleum-based polyol with renewable soybeans.
The homeowner will also save on money and resources since the turf installed in his backyard does not require watering or mowing for maintenance.
