Learn why so many professional golfers prefer to play on synthetic turf.

Champions like Jim Furyk, Hale Irwin, and Vijay Singh all endorse and use the Southwest Greens premium synthetic golf putting greens. These pros all know that our artificial greens are the best on the market. Why do they love our greens? Here are a few of the reasons.


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is an excellent turf for all areas of golf. All golfers are familiar with the excessive wear that happens on a course or putting green. Organic grass is more susceptible to damage caused by playing the game. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We have designed and installed more than 6000 golf greens across the globe as luxurious golf courses, backyard putting greens, and more.


Even though all of our golf greens are comparable to natural grass, Golden Bear is one of our customer’s preferred turfs. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-quality artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, the best aim of any putting surface is Golden Bear. The playability is so real you would swear you’re on genuine grass.


There is nothing like looking out at a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you will enjoy a stunning green with virtually no work all year long. You can select from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can have exactly what you want. Our consultants can help design a uniquely customized experience for your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you instantly reduce the amount of maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. Turf stays durable year after year, use after use. It will not fade in sunlight or flatten with heavy foot traffic. Mowing and watering are a thing of the past when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not responsible for maintaining your golf greens, you are aware that weeds and pests will take over a wide area of organic grass. Not only does this look bad, but weeds and pests can also do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about animals, insects, or weeds with artificial turf. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t stick around and munch on your grass.


Don’t just take our word for it; look at what some of the top golf champions who have had Southwest Greens installed on their properties have to say.
