Under the guidance of professional golfer, Dion Kipping, Gecko has developed a range of synthetic grasses that perform and react like any natural green.
Dion and Gecko spent a tremendous amount of time developing a grass that would ultimately provide a “true ball roll”. To achieve this desire, Gecko has spent hours testing “the science of golf” as associated with grass surfaces and ball roll characteristics. Finally satisfied with the end result, Gecko released it’s range of synthetic grasses specifically tailored to the individual’s requirements. This means that there is a grass to suit everyone from social players to professional golf courses.
“…precision installation of competition grade golf surfacing!”
SYNTHETIC PUTTING GREENS – GOLF COURSE
With the employment of professional golfer – Dion Kipping and our internationally experienced installation team Gecko has created various surfacing products including a synthetic putting green that behaves and reacts just like a natural golf green does.
At the very beginning to find the right formula to build a realistic green Gecko Surfacing Solutions invested an enormous amount of research and development in designing a “true to life” green. Working with our internationally experienced team we completed our objective with a green that almost mimics any natural green. Dion’s input was a critical factor to arriving with the ‘package’. Prior to Gecko, Dion had been involved in the golfing industry for almost 20 years, becoming a Professional Golfer and US PGA Tour Caddy for the likes of Aaron Baddeley and Robert Allenby amongst others.
After releasing his book “Caddie to the Stars”, and returning from a commentary stint in the U.S. Masters in Augusta for Channel 10, Dion has worked alongside Gecko’s internationally experienced installation team. Combining their knowledge and experience at an elite level within the golf industry Gecko has developed one of the most realistic world class synthetic putting surfaces in the business. Gecko greens are installed using unique products, expert 3D AutoCad design and proven construction techniques, resulting in our greens having all the features of a natural grass green!
SYNTHETIC TEE OFF GRASS – GOLF COURSE
STOP your tee’s and fairways turning into mud in winter and have a perfectly lush surface without water in summer, while saving on maintenance by up to 98%!!!”
Due to the high maintenance and lack of water to care for tee off areas, Gecko’s Tee Line series was developed to replicate hitting from natural turf. Many tee lines or hitting mats are produced with a thick rubber base, and thin, tightly woven nylon on the hitting surface. This surface can produce injury and also creates a bounce effect as the club hits the mat, thus resulting in an unrealistic shot.
Our tee lines have been uniquely designed to completely reverse this conforming belief on hitting mats resulting in our enormously dense market leading surface that mimics that of striking a ball on a real golf course. We are so excited about this revolutionary product for tee liners ensure the hitting area has the same realistic feel as hitting from natural turf!
Due to the dense surface, the longevity of the product is also increased making the Gecko Tee Line the fastest growing preferred option for golf hitting mats.
Gecko’s Rubber Safety Logs can provide a superb perimeter to our Tee-Off grass. They also offer the ability to fasten the Tee-Off grass edge for greater security and stability. Gecko Tee lines can be installed by our team at Gecko or purchased directly along with a free installation guide to ensure optimum results.
