Angela Grego Honored with Golf Project of the Year Award from SYNLawn

Kansas City, MO, (March 26, 2020) — Angela Grego, a local businesswoman and the owner of SYNLawn Kansas City, was recently awarded with the Golf Project of the Year award from SYNLawn®, the largest manufacturer and unrivaled innovator of artificial grass in North America. The award was in recognition of the installation of a reproduction of the famous 12th Hole at Augusta that Angela and her Kansas City team created for Fishtech Group, which is one of Kansas City’s top employers. The cybersecurity solutions provider is owned by local entrepreneur, investor and cybersecurity pioneer, Gary Fish.

“My team and I were honored to be selected by Mr. Fish to create this reproduction for his employees and clients to enjoy,” said Angela Grego, owner of SYNLawn Kansas City. “He wanted to expand his employee amenities by adding a tee-to-green golf replica of the renowned 12th Hole, which is at the National Golf Club in Augusta, Georgia, the home of the Masters Tournament. Recreating a complete tee-to-green hole replica was no easy task for our team, but we met his goals and built an accurate replica of one of the most famous golf holes in the country using 16,000 total square feet of multiple artificial turf products.”

Angela and her team, which included an in-house architect, spent more than 100 hours of pre-planning to ensure the design was accurate and well-adjusted to the challenging swampy installation site. The installers applied laser focus to every inch of the full-size replica to ensure accuracy and a fair game. The team brought in more than 800 tons of premium crushed stone to serve as the base layer for the golf green and multiple SYNLawn golf turfs were installed in careful amounts, including Tee Strike, SYNTipede 243, SYNZoysia X49, and Classic Pitch. The premium Shot Stopper 2.0 turf was a key element in creating this authentic replica. It provides superior simulation of live grass texture for the putting green, which grips the ball slightly to create the same sticking sensation experienced on the famous hole.

“While the 12th Hole at Augusta is one of trickiest holes to play, it’s also my favorite, which is why I selected it for my office installation,” said Gary Fish, CEO of Fishtech. “I knew SYNLawn was the only company that would be able to successfully replicate not only the look, but also its playability. The project was a success and it quickly became one of the most popular amenities at our office for employees, clients and visitors.”

In addition to this golf installation that Angela and her team were recognized for, they also provide artificial grass solutions for commercial and residential playgrounds, pet areas (i.e., dog parks, dog daycare facilities, etc.), rooftop decks and patios, backyards and lawn areas, landscaping, recreation areas and sports facilities. In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Angela and her team are also now offering a disinfectant solution that is effective against COVID-19, as well as other viruses, fungi, mildew, mold, germs and harmful bacteria.
