Questions? Call us!
DeShayes Dream Greens is available to answer any questions that you may have about our Dream Greens. The following are some of the frequently asked questions that we tend to receive. However, if you don’t find the answer that you are looking for, please do not hesitate to contact us, we will respond to your inquiry as soon as possible.
Q. I live in an area where the climate is nice and I can play golf all year round. How can it help me? Would I use it much?
A. We have clients in a wide range of climate areas, both here in the U.S. and around the world. Many have homes right on the golf course. Remember - no place is perfect all the time - heat, humidity, rain, wind, insects, overcrowding, slow play and not enough time to play are just some problems that come up. It is nice to have a truly great putting surface available whenever you want - after work, while watching the news, during a game or whenever you have the urge to putt a few hits, but don't feel like going to the course.
If you have a DreamGreen in your home and/or office, you can get in a few strokes of practice whenever you get a little window of time or just need a stress break. Many of our clients tell us that having Golf Theme Parties with family and friends throughout the year is always a big hit!
Q. What materials are used to build your putting greens?
A. The Dream Green putting surface is a proprietary, high density, non-directional putting surface that yields tournament speeds. It is not an Astroturf type surface. The Dream Green putting surface will putt true and enable you to refine your aiming skills as well as develop your speed skills.
All visible exterior components of the Dream Green are ¾ inch solid hardwoods. Standard models are solid natural ash. These can be custom stained to match almost any décor. Our upgrades include solid cherry or walnut. Custom models can be almost any combination of domestic or exotic hardwoods. They are always solid, not veneered, so they can definitely be refinished should that ever become necessary.
Q. How fast is the putting surface?
A. As you know, putting green speeds vary by region, season, from course to course, hole-to-hole and even on the same hole throughout the day. Many professionals, instructors and the vast majority of skilled golfers prefer this tournament speed surface as the best way to hone their putting game. If you would prefer a moderate or slower speed surface, contact us.
Q. What putting green size is best?
A. The answer really comes down to space and money. Our most popular size is 4’ by 16’, second is 4’ by 20 ’ and third is 4 ’ by 12’. We also have smaller models available.
Q. Is it difficult to assemble?
A. The Dream Green has been designed to assemble easily. All models come in four-foot sections and connect to each other with specially designed hinge pins. Assembly is simple, and instructions are included. The only tool required is a standard Phillips head screwdriver. Once you have read the instructions and assembled your Dream Green for the first time (about 30 minutes), it will only take about five minutes to disassemble and five minutes to reassemble the green, should you decide to move it to another location.
Q. What if my room is too small to accommodate your standard size putting green?
A. For a modest price, we can and often make custom lengths for customers who have special space requirements. We would first need to discuss your situation with you to determine the best solution.
Q. How do I care for my putting green?
A. Each Dream Green is extremely sturdy and durable, that being the case we still recommend that you treat it as you would any fine piece of furniture. When breaks are set, walk around the green, instead of walking on it. When not in use, set all break stations to flat. The putting surface should be brushed or vacuumed regularly, and the wood should be dusted and wiped with a damp cloth or furniture polish occasionally. If the putting surface gets soiled or stained, have it cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner.
