This week’s Featured Application comes to us from Bill Hillstrom STI Dealer of Golf Greens Texas. This golf green contains a real sand bunker on the side of the hill and Bill and his team used Innovative Base Technology “professional panels” under the turf and Airfield systems “Air Drain” panels in the bottom of the sand bunker.


This incredible waterfront install included quite a few of Synthetic Turf International products, including 7,775 square feet of NP50.  NP50 is STI’s premier texturized nylon-putting surface available in the industry. There is no comparison to the natural ball roll and realistic speeds. The key to the unmatched performance characteristics offered by the NP50 are attributed to the dense, non-directional cross-stitched construction. Numerous teaching professionals, top rated golf facilities, tour players and avid golfers alike prefer this synthetic putting surface.

To make up the fringe and landscape areas 1,575 square feet of SoftLawn® Pro Cut and 2,685 square feet of SoftLawn® Fresh Cut Pro were installed. SoftLawn® Pro Cut was designed specifically for pet facilities and nylon putting green fringes/collars. The short dense construction offers unique features for durability and ease of use throughout the life of the product.


You can rest assured that this product was designed for the high wear experienced in the busiest commercial pet facilities, but its natural aesthetics were kept intact in order to ensure that it can be used in any residential setting or around golf greens.

Finally, they used 1,200 square feet of EZTee® Hybrid Plus+ features a non-infilled high grade polypropylene/nylon blended yarn system designed for heavy traffic tee lines, hitting mats, and extended use golf ranges. This product holds a real tee and allows players to hit all clubs, from a wedge to a driver and is used by many of the top golf courses around the world.

In total 7,500 square feet of putting green was installed with 45 yards as the longest shot.


Location (City, State, Province) LAKE BROWNWOOD, TEXAS

This project is called “Rooster Point Golf”. It was built on the side of a hill at a personal residence on Lake Brownwood. It features NINE different tee locations and 11 holes which adds up to a total of 99 different hole combinations! The install also features a small putting green for the grandchildren of the family to play on.

Be on the lookout for some incredible drone footage to come later this month! We will update here and on social media!
