Not all artificial grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re searching for high-quality artificial grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just pick up a roll of turf from your local Kennewick big box store and expect it to that it will deliver the same play experience as the greens at your local course. Especially if that turf isn’t even made 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 as it should from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

The properties and qualities to watch for when searching for artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, predictably, the play properties of your local golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you should assume it to be received 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 won’t provide that, failing to provide the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specifically and scientifically developed to be authentic in this way and grant 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How could you possibly improve putt consistency when you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have 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 detrimental to your game instead of beneficial. If you’re looking to improve your put skills, you want to find a realistic artificial grass designed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed to this end; many players you’ve heard of will vouch for it.
