Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re searching for professional-grade artificial grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Augusta sporting goods store and trust that it will deliver the same golfing experience as the greens at your local course. Especially if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to an actual golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as it should from club face to the cup too. It isn’t too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.

The properties and qualities to watch for when doing your research on artificial turf for your golf green projects should be, predictably, the play characteristics of your local golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you should presume it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce appropriately, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products will not provide that, unable to replicate the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specially and scientifically developed to be authentic in this way and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How could you ever improve putt consistency if you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action is important. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that can’t match the same quality as the greens at the course may be damaging to your game instead of beneficial. If you hope to improve your putting, you have to get a genuine feeling artificial grass developed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not just designed for residential use; a lot of professional players you’ve heard of endorse it.
