Find out 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. They know all of our artificial greens are the best on the market. Why do they love our greens? Here are just some of the reasons.


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect choice for all facets of golf. All golfers are aware of the wear and tear that happens on a course or putting green. Traditional 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 over 6,000 worldwide golf greens as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.


While all of our golf greens look and feel like natural grass, one of our customer’s favorites is Golden Bear. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-level artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, Golden Bear offers the best aim of any putting surface. The playability is so real you’d swear you’re on organic grass.


There is nothing like seeing a perfectly manicured green lawn. With synthetic turf, you can see a stunning green with hardly any work all year round. You can decide on a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can get the look you want. Our consultants can help develop a completely personalized experience that meets your needs.


When you invest in artificial turf, you immediately cut down on the amount of maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. Turf maintains its durability year after year, use after use. It won’t fade in sunlight or compress from heavy foot traffic. No more mowing or watering when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you aren’t in charge of maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests can quickly overcome a vast area of traditional grass. This not only looks bad, but it can also wreak havoc on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about weeds, animals, or insects with artificial turf. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t stick around and snack 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.
