Synthetic Putting Greens

Quality, low-maintenance synthetic putting greens and practice areas from TourGreens® let residents enjoy chipping and putting even if they can't play a full course. TourGreens’ “golfscapes” include garden landscaping as well as undulations and contours built to strict PGA guidelines. A “water hazard” can take the form of a natural pond of a tranquil waterfall.

Golfers and non-golfers alike will enjoy TourGreens’ serene garden setting whether they are golfing, relaxing on comfortable seating, enjoying the company of friends, or just communing with nature.
