Since 2003 Andy Cronin has built over 500 Custom Putting greens throughout Northern California and Nevada.

We know golf AND we know synthetic turfs! Our greens are endorsed by golf professionals such as PGA pro Kevin Sutherland and Empire Ranch head pro Brett Taylor. As an owner operated firm, we will work with you through every step of the process from selection of the right turf, to the design of the shape and undulations, through every step of construction. We are focused on customer satisfaction and treat every project like it is our own. We have been installing residential and commercial putting greens in Sacramento and Northern California since 2003. We have a California contractor’s license with a class of D12, specifically for installing synthetic turf. We are bonded and carry full general liability and workman’s compensation insurance. We spare no expense to make our greens as realistic, functional and aesthetically pleasing as possible. We use only the highest quality turf, as well as the best materials, accessories and installation processes.

After graduation from West Virginia University in 1987 Andy moved to CA and began a career as an IT consultant in the high tech industry.  Fifteen years later after getting married and having two children he decided we wanted a career he could be passionate about.  In 2003 Andy founded Sierra Synthetic Putting Greens with the goal of building the best possible synthetic putting greens.  For the first several years he worked on his own learning the best products, processes and tools required to build beautiful, long lasting realistic synthetic putting greens.  In 2006 he hired two Ukrainian immigrants(Maryan & Yuriy)   to handle most of the labor involved in building the putting greens.  This allowed Andy to focus on sales, business operations, customer satisfaction and his golf game.  He still stays involved in every step of the construction process to insure a fantastic result!
