Not all artificial grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re searching for high-quality artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Flagstaff big box store and trust that it will provide you with the same kind of experience as the greens at the golf course. Especially if that turf isn’t even built for golf. No, you need a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to a real golf green as possible. And to fully benefit from your investment, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup too. It is not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

The characteristics and qualities to look out for when doing your research on artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, predictably, the play attributes of actual golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you land a chip shot on the green, you should assume it will land by the grass properly, bounce correctly, and roll naturally. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic turf products won’t provide that, failing to provide the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specially and scientifically designed to be authentic in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more critical. How could you possibly improve putt consistency when you’re putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? No matter if you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. Practicing your aim and game on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same standard as the greens at the course may be more damaging to your game than helpful. If you’re looking to improve your put skills, you want to find a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t just designed for residential use; many professional players you’ve heard of stand by it.

When you recognize that synthetic golf greens aren’t simply made for residential backyard putting greens but are also commonly used at many of your favorite professional golf courses, you could want to know how the pros feel about golfing on it. Well, 55 plus PGA golf icons, including Jack Nicklaus, Rickie Fowler, Annika Sörenstam, and Hale Irwin stand by the top quality of Southwest Greens Flagstaff’s artificial grass products. A lot of professional courses use our artificial grass for their putting greens so they can save money and for the quality of professional-grade artificial turf, including Top of the Rock Golf Course in Missouri and The Hong Kong Golf and Tennis Academy.
