Discover why many professional golfers prefer to play on synthetic turf.

Champions such as Hale Irwin, Vijay Singh, and Jim Furyk all use and endorse the Southwest Greens premium synthetic golf putting greens. They know all of our artificial golf greens are the best on the market. Here are some of the reasons why they love our greens.


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is an ideal turf for all areas of golf. Any golfer is aware of the excessive wear that happens on a course or putting green. Traditional grass is more vulnerable to damage caused by golfing. 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 backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.


While all of our golf greens replicate natural grass, one of our customer’s preferred turfs is Golden Bear. 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’d swear you’re on organic grass.


There is nothing like looking out at a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you will have a stunning green with hardly any effort all year long. You can choose from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can have exactly the look you want. Our team can help develop a truly personalized experience to meet your needs.


Choosing to invest in artificial turf, you immediately reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. Turf stays durable year after year, use after use. It won’t fade in the sun or compress from heavy foot traffic. Mowing and watering are a thing of the past when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you’re not the one maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests will overcome a vast area of organic grass. This not only looks bad, but it also can wreak havoc on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about insects, weeds, or animals with artificial turf. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t hang 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.
