The no-water, no-maintenance putting green will be at the 2006 PGA Golf Show
Pro-tech, the Australian company behind the popular no-water, no-maintenance synthetic putting greens, will be at the 2006 PGA Golf Show.

Pro-tech was founded in 2003 and introduced its high quality putting green technology to Australia under a licence agreement with a leading US company.

The putting greens are part of the Pro-tech range and are unique as they perform like a true championship green without the required maintenance of natural grass greens. The technology used by Pro-tech is endorsed by many of the world’s leading golfers including Australians Peter O'Malley, Nick O'Hern and Wayne Grady who have had Pro-tech greens installed at their homes for personal practice.

“The great thing about the Pro-tech green is that it plays as true as any green we play on around the world, and it requires next to no maintenance or watering to keep it in this condition,” said O’Malley.

The same high quality synthetic green was recently installed on the rooftop of the Sydney home of former Prime Minister Bob Hawke.

“Since I've had the Pro-tech putting green on the roof, it's been marvellous fun and it's certainly improved my putting,” Mr Hawke said.

Pro-tech putting greens can be installed indoor or outdoor in residential backyards, at corporate offices, apartment developments, resorts, hotels and motels, or indeed for non-championship golf courses and driving ranges.

Pro-tech has also developed the unique Eco Logical Lawn based on European technology which uses the process of ‘fibrillation’ to split the fibres and give the lawn a grass-like look and feel.

A water capturing system, which Pro-tech has recently developed and patented, can be installed beneath the Eco Logical Lawn. It makes the collection of fresh rain water easy with the help of a sub-turf membrane which collects the water and stores it in a subterranean water tank. The water in the modular tank, which can sit beneath or adjacent to the lawn, can then be pumped to a garden tap.
