SofTrak® Greens Synthetic Turf System
Each putting green is designed to fit the site and satisfy the client’s specifications. The installation process is an exact one, resulting in a satisfied customer every time.
It's more than a Surface. It's a System.
The SofTrak® system was created to imitate a real golf course green in every way. We begin by excavating and compacting the site and overlaying a special geotextile fabric to help stabilize the sub-base. We then construct a two-layer, compacted crushed stone flex-base and compact it completely. Next, we contour the surface to your specifications.
The base is now ready for the SofTrak® turf to be placed, cut, and shaped as desired. Now comes a special proprietary blend of cleaned and special size graded round silica granules. Finally we apply a combination of our proprietary colored top-dressing which gives the green its unique realistic appearance.
SofTrak’s® color is closer to the color of true grass than any other artificial fiber. Our last step is to adjust the speed of the green by rolling. We can even match the speed of the greens at our favorite club.
Four Things That Make SofTrak® Greens Vastly Superior
The putting surface can even be designed with contours and undulations for uphill, downhill, and breaking putts.
SofTrak® turf is a specialized product and is the only synthetic turf manufactured from fibers specifically designed to simulate the softness, texture, density, and color of natural bent-grass.
SofTrak® turf is manufactured to precise specifications in order to achieve optimum pile height and density to create a putting surface that is truly realistic and performs just like a natural bent-grass putting green.
No one else has anything like it!
