Install instructions for putting green:
Layout of Green and Existing Ground Preparation
• Step 1: Determine the size and shape of your green as well as any chipping stations and/or sand traps.
• Step 2: Measure the length and width you determined from Step 1 on the ground and using irrigation flags
or stakes and landscape marking paint, outline the designed shape. Check for irrigation heads and be sure
they are all capped off.
• Step 3: Once the green is outlined you are ready to remove any existing sod. If your existing ground is not
sod covered, skip to Step 4. Utilizing a sod cutter remove the sod from the staked green area plus an additional
1’ to 1 1/2‘ around the perimeter. Set the depth of the sod cutter to between 2 and 3 inches.
• Step 4: You now have the green area laid out and have removed any sod from the area plus an additional
1’ outside. Rough grade the area using a landscape rake, then using a water hose and nozzle, lightly wet the
area and then compact using either a 2 ton double drum roller or 19” plate compactor depending on the size of
the green and equipment availability. Make 2 passes over the area to ensure sufficient compaction.
• Step 1: Remove the irrigation flags used in the layout of the green as you will be utilizing them again in this
• Step 2: Base installation will involve two different types of base material. The first layer of base will be
between 1 and 2 inches thick and consist of 1” to fines aggregate material. The second layer should not exceed
3 inches thick and will consist of screenings or other fine material, depending on what is available in your area.
The base material is measured by the cubic yard and the following calculation is utilized to determine the
quantity of material.
a) Area of green in square feet x depth of layer in feet (inch measurement ÷ 12) = cubic feet of material
b) Cubic feet ÷ 27 = Cubic yards of material
c) Round the final measurement up to calculate for any waste
Whether the material is delivered or you pick it up have it onsite when you are ready to begin the base
• Step 3: As you install the first layer of base you will incorporate the green undulations into this installation
by adding thicker layers of base in certain areas to create breaks. To aid in this, install irrigation flags or stakes
on each side of the green down the entire length. The flag/stake spacing should be about 3 to 5 feet apart and
directly across the green from each other. You will also need a laser or site level and tripod set up at one end of
the green or a 8-10 foot long 2”x4” with a level attached.
A normal break is about a 2 to 3 inch fall between sections of the green and a more challenging break would be
a 4 inch fall (example 6 inches down to 2 inches).
• Step 4: Using a shovel and rake, place base material evenly over the green area. As you install the first
layer of aggregate material, build up the green higher in areas per your design by adding more material and
periodically check the elevations with your level until you have achieved the desired amount of fall in each
portion of the green.
• Step 5: When you have finished the first layer of base and are satisfied with the undulations you should
have between 4 and 5 inches of material installed. You are now ready to compact this layer. Using the water
hose and nozzle thoroughly wet the entire area but do not overly saturate it. Then begin compaction with the 2-
ton double drum roller or 19” plate compactor. You should make even passes over the area and repeat 2 times
to ensure sufficient compaction.
• Step 6: After compacting the first layer recheck your undulations with the level and then rough the entire
area with a landscape rake.
• Step 7: Begin installing the screenings/fine material. Remember to maintain the contours you created with
the first layer and evenly install the second layer at a uniform thickness. You should only need about 2 inches of
material with a maximum of 3 inches.
• Step 8: Using the back of the landscape rake gently smooth the surface of the base and wet thoroughly but
not overly saturated. Compact with either the 2 ton double drum roller or 19” plate compactor with even passes
over the base. Compact the entire green twice
• Step 1: Roll a small basketball or rubber ball on the green to determine the effects of the undulations you
have installed. This will help in determining where to install the cups depending on the desired breaks you wish
to create. Experiment by placing the cups on the base and rolling the ball to each location until you have the
• Step 2: Using post-hole diggers, dig out the holes for the cups in the previously determined locations. Dig
far enough down to ensure the cup will be 1/2" higher than the surface of the base when installed. This is
important because it will help you find the holes once the turf is laid on top of the base.
• Step 3: Wrap the entire cup twice with wax paper or mylar seam tape and then tape the bottom of the cup
with duct tape.
• Step 4: Place the cup in the center of the hole you dug and place Kwik-Crete cement evenly around the
cup all the way up to the surface of the base. Pour water over the cement until it soaks in. Place the pin for the
hole or a 30” pole marker in the cup to keep it level and eye the cup from all angles to ensure it is straight.
• Step 5: Using a hard bristled push broom, broom the entire surface of the base to ensure that there are no
foot marks or dimples present.
Lay Out Turf Step 1: Before installing your turf, unroll it and lay it out flat on top of the base to let it relax from
being rolled up. To unroll the turf, place the roll or rolls on one side of the green and gently roll turf out over the
base. Do not drag the turf across the surface of the base. If possible you should leave it flat overnight at a
• Step 1: With the turf laid out on the base draw a chalk line in the outline of the final desired shape of your
• Step 2: With a cushion cutter carefully cut out the turf along the chalk line. Be sure to have replacement
blades available for the knife.
• Step 1: Top dressing material is silica sand sold in 50 pound bags. It should be spread evenly on the turf
with a lawn spreader at a rate of 2 to 3 pounds per square foot for Poly turf and 1 to 2 pounds per square foot
for nylon putting green.
• Step 2: Use a blower or hard bristle push broom to distribute the top dressing evenly over the turf.
• Step 3: Roll the turf using a water-filled roller. Make 2 to 3 passes over the green in both directions.
Cutting Cup Holes
• Step 1: Locate the holes underneath the turf and then find the center of the cup using your thumb. Cut a
small X in the center using a sharp utility knife.
• Step 2: Insert the knife into the X and carefully cut until you reach the edge of the cup. Gently hold the turf
up at the X and cut tightly around the outside edge of the cup.
• Step 3: Once the turf is removed over the cup, carefully remove the cup from the hole. You may need to
use the handle end of a pair of pliers and a screwdriver to pry the cup loose before pulling it out if it does not
come out on its own.
• Step 4: Have a 5 gallon bucket nearby for garbage and remove the wax paper from the cups and discard
the paper. Make sure the bottom of the hole does not have any concrete in it. Using a small amount of dirt from
the bottom of the hole, rub it on the inside walls of the concreted hole.
• Step 5: Reinstall the cup in the hole, ensuring the top of the cup is about 1/8” below the top of the turf. You
may need to gently tap the cup into place with the handle of a hammer. Repeat for all of the cups.
