Congratulations PuttTek!

What started as a personal pursuit of passion has turned into a luxury putting course business for one Arizona competitor golfer. Camron Howell, co-owner of PuttTek, searched for a company that could install a personal putting course to practice his short game from home. He wanted a nine hole course so that he could play over and over again. After receiving multiple replies that there isn’t anyone who could do what he wanted, he decided to take matters into his own hands.

“Design and creativity has been something I’ve always been good at,” Howell said. “I designed my course, picked out the turf, and hired a crew to install it.” Howell used the same typography found on the traditional golf course. The course used a few different turf products – Everlast Nylon Putt 2-Tone, Everlast Poly Putt 2-Tone and TigerTurf Pet Turf found through Synthetic Grass Warehouse to achieve the desired look. This allowed for a different type of effect for the fairway, fringe and putting green. The crew had been so impressed by the outcome of the project, that they suggested Howell create his own business so that artificial grass companies could partner up and promote this type of installation.

Howell took their advice, and now PuttTek partners up with professional landscapers and design firms throughout the Southwest to integrate a customized PuttTek putting course into an overall landscape package.

Howell says that friends ask to come play all the time, which is just fine with him. “It’s fun for all ages,” he said. “It’s safe and it really is a work of art.” Howell believes that it’s the scoring component that makes his courses so popular. “It’s the same reason why people enjoy cornhole, billiards and ping pong,” he said. “It’s just another form of friendly competition.”

Ask JW: The Importance of Power Brooms

The evolution of synthetic turf has evolved tremendously over the decades. Fiber structure and design have created turf that is denser than ever before. With these changes creates challenges for the installer to have the very best of tools and machinery to “brush up” the synthetic turf fibers. I call this “Defibrillation” or as some may call it “Power Brooming”.

This month’s column, I will teach what power brooms are, why defibrillation is important for the appearance of your project, and how defibrillation will assist in the turf fibers longevity.
