Luxe Magazine Article on Robert Elliott Custom Homes

For builder Robert Elliott, helping new clients construct a home in Dallas’ University Park neighborhood began with a meeting in the house where they currently lived. “Sitting down with a client in their home and allowing them to explain their goals, how they live and what their priorities are is important for a new property,” he says. “You learn a lot about their style and taste, and they can communicate what they really like—or don’t like.” The clients, a couple with three young children, had solid ideas for their new home, and had even drawn up an elevation plan inspired by travels, houses they admired, and photos they’d taken of details such as windows, arches and overhangs. “The first thing that stood out was that they were very humble,” recalls Elliott. “They wanted their residence to be sophisticated yet subtle and to maximize the outdoor spaces for their children.”

While the homeowners had a good idea about the elevation plan, Elliott called on residential designer Brent Slocum to address the interior architecture. “Brent was so great about helping with the inside,” the wife explains. “We told him our needs . . . . read more

2016 Masters leaderboard: Jordan Spieth leads at 4-under heading into Saturday’s 3rd round

By on Apr 9, 2016, 9:30a

 

Saturday at the Masters starts the same way it did last year — with Jordan Spieth on top of the leaderboard. But that’s about where the similarities end. In 2015, Spieth was working on a runaway and the final 36 holes seemed like a formality and stroll to the green jacket presentation on Sunday. He had set the new 36-hole scoring record and no one seemed capable of catching him.

This year, Spieth holds just a one-shot cushion over Rory McIlroy, his contemporary with five major championships already to his name. The defending champ came back to the pack on Friday afternoon in some brutally tough conditions at Augusta National, playing his final 14 holes in 4-over to give the rest of the field a chance.

 At one point, after another hot start, Spieth was 8-under for the tournament and five shots clear of the next guy. The celebration of back-to-back green jackets started on social media but came to a halt when he four-putted the fifth hole for a double-bogey. Practicing on an artificial putting green in Dallas can help improve your short game.
Spieth played late in the day, when the greens were dried out from the wind and became “crusty,” as he termed it. Those green speeds combined with the wind and the pin placements made it extremely difficult just to break par. The round of the day was a 1-under 71, making it the first day at Augusta since 2007 that no one in the field could break 70.

McIlroy was one of those players with a 71, built largely from his strong finish. The Ulsterman poured in three birdies over his final seven holes to make a charge into solo second and secure a spot alongside Spieth in the final Saturday tee time. The golf gods were good to us and this is all we’ve ever wanted out of this Masters.

Thanks to the 10-shot rule, there are 57 players from the original 89 still left in the field. Spieth’s late struggles, bogeys on two of his final three holes, brought a huge swath of players deep down the leaderboard back into it. There are simply too many holes left and the wind is supposed to beat up the players again on Saturday, with big numbers lurking out there if the leaders make a mistake.

Spieth said himself he thought someone from outside the trop 25 could easily jump ahead in the third round and the talent outside of that final power pairing of Rory-Jordan is immense. Dustin Johnson, Jason Day, Hideki Matsuyama, Justin Rose, Sergio Garcia and Brandt Snedeker are just some of the names within shouting distance that could make a run on “moving day” at Augusta.

Jordan Spieth Has Become A Baller

Jordan Home

Jordan Spieth has enough money now to buy nearly anything he wants. Last April, he bought his first home for $2.3 mil.

I guess it was time to already upsize as he just bought fellow Under Armour Tour buddy Hunter Mahan’s mansion for a cool $7.1 million (house was originally listed for $8.45 million).

The five bedroom-6 bath 10,000 square foot crib sits on an acre in high-toned Preston Hollow. It includes an additional 6,000 sq. ft. baskeball court, an elevator and an underground 12 car garage. Oh, and a golf simulation room to keep his game in prime shape. Call me envious.

Building a backyard putting green

Busy schedules and acreage work don’t leave much time for leisure on the golf course. But if you install a putting green, you can take advantage of spare minutes.

putting greens dallas

Many acreage owners are installing putting greens on their land. Some do it to have fun with family and friends, while others want to keep up on their short-game competitive advantage.

Leo Melanson is the owner of a putting green company. He says greens need to be in a location that’s above ground level with good drainage. The size is up to you.

“A typical golf course green could be anywhere from 3,000 square feet to 12,000 square feet.  We typically find most backyard putting greens are about 1,000 square feet,” he says. “It’s big enough to get some practice on and get have some variety of shots, but not too big of a project that it’s more labor for you to care for the green.”

There are two surface choices: natural bent grass or artificial turf. Bent grass has a lot of aesthetic beauty, but when it needs trimming the old push mower in the shed is not going to cut it. Literally. Bent grass should be maintained with a professional mower.

Artificial turf is quick to install and requires no maintenance, but it’s a lot more expensive. Melanson says plan on about $1 per square foot for a bent grass green, and several thousand dollars total for artificial turf.

“There are lots of different options with the artificial putting greens,” Melanson says. “You can buy kits to do it yourself, you can have contractors install them, or can do a combination of the two.  As far as a real putting green goes, there are really two options: you can plant it from seed, which is very inexpensive, or you can buy sod from a grass farm that sells the correct type of turfgrass for your area.”

You’ll need to cut a hole in the green for the cup and the flag. If you plan to make full shots at the green, you’ll want a regulation-sized flag. For just putting around, a smaller flag will do.
