Not all artificial grasses are designed the same way or for the same reason. If you’re searching for realistic artificial grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy the first roll of artificial grass you see from your local Tucson sporting goods store and trust that it will give you the same kind of experience as the greens at your local course. Especially if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you need a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to a professional 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 features and qualities to watch for when searching for artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, unsurprisingly, the play attributes of actual golf courses. Let’s get started with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you should expect it will land by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial turf products don’t deliver on that, unable to replicate the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specially and scientifically made to be authentic in this way and ensure 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more critical. How can you ever improve putt consistency if you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? No matter if 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 game on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same standard as the greens at the course could be more detrimental to your game than good for it. If you’re hoping to improve your game, you need to discover a genuine feeling artificial grass developed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed for residential use; many players you’ve heard of will vouch for it.
