THE MASTER OF INSTALLATION TECHNOLOGY
Southwest Greens of Illinois knows how to bring genuinely terrific styles to life. Since 1996, we have built a reputation for creating premium golf greens, catching the attention of over two dozen top PGA Tour pros who have had Southwest Greens turf installed at their homes.
Architects and contractors count on companies that consistently supply excellent installations, and those partnerships are just as essential to us as those with homeowners. Constructed in the USA by Shaw Industries, a Berkshire Hathaway company, and installed using systems proven for performance, you will have the satisfaction and backing of a global leader while working with local, value-oriented craftsmen.
Our leadership transcends excellent craftsmanship; Shaw Industries’ committed R&D lab has developed innovations such as the Bolt™ fiber and HydroChill® evaporative cooling technology – a robust combination that provides quality and comfort. Southwest Greens of Illinois, a wholly-owned subsidiary, is happy to continually improve and enhance the work we already do.

THE PERFECT FINISHED PRODUCT
When we say we are the best in the business, we mean it. We don’t believe in cookie-cutter putting green installations. Southwest Greens of Illinois has conquered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve built and installed more than 6,000 golf greens around the globe as backyard putting greens, magnificent golf courses, and more.
Here’s a quick glance at how our artificial grass and putting green installation process works:
- A bottom layer of crushed aggregate, which, unlike concrete, can be moistened and molded to form protection against breaks and ripples.
- Next, we install at least a 1/4 inch cushion pad that helps ball roll and shot absorption, then comes our 1 1/8 inch advanced polypropylene turf material that is used to simulate the playability, softness, and the rich green color of real grass.
- The fake grass is then filled with a combination of fine-coated silica sand to give it the impression of natural grass.
- Finally, the top layer is rolled to create the effect of a true bent grass green. Choices include the installation of the first and second cuts fringe, sand traps, bunkers, fairways, and roughs.
