This week’s featured application comes from the Synthetic Turf International dealer in Southern California. Pioneer Synthetic Turf, also known as Pioneer Golf, Inc, and it is owned by Keith Thykeson (PGA) and Chris Zeilinger. They are based out of Thousand Oaks, CA, and they specialize in synthetic turf applications in the surrounding Los Angeles region.
Pioneer Synthetic Turf installed a putting green prior to Father’s Day for a client that was a friend of another client. This person saw what Pioneer was able to accomplish in his backyard, which was recently filmed for an upcoming video for Synthetic Turf International. Pioneer Synthetic Turf even used the same products: NP50 cross-stitched nylon putting surface, SoftLawn® Kennel Cut for the first cut fringe and SoftLawn® Bluegrass Blend for the rough and lawn.
The client was out of town during construction and when he returned home, it was almost complete. The synthetic putting green in his backyard was a nice present to come home to on Father’s Day. The size of the project was 1,400′ SF. (The putting green area accounted for approximately 700′ SF, and the lawn made up the majority of the remaining 700′ SF.)
