How can you improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a sub-standard turf that doesn’t have natural action?

 

NOT EVERY SYNTHETIC TURF IS MADE EQUAL

If you’re looking for lifelike synthetic turf for a industrial or residential golf green design, you can’t pick up a roll of turf from the domestic big box shop. Your experience will be nothing like what you receive at your local course.

When it comes to artificial turf, you want a product in which a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as clearly to a real golf green. And to optimize your capital, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup. It’s not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

 

HOW TO SELECT A EXCELLENT TURF

One of the first features to search for when exploring artificial turf for your golf green projects in Austin should be the play properties of authentic golf courses.


Let’s start with landing on the green.

When you land a chip shot on the green, you expect it to be acquired by the grass correctly, bounce adequately, and roll clearly, hopefully, in the direction of the cup. That final part is as you please, though. Regrettably, many artificial grass products can’t deliver on that, failing to offer the similar bounce as true greens do. Our Golden Bear line of business is especially and mechanically designed to be practical in this regard and offer 20-25% more ball retention than other prominent artificial grass products.

 

WHY GOLDEN BEAR GRASS

Putting is debatable where the suitable roll, aim, and organic golf ball action turns even more crucial. How can you potentially improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low grade turf that does not have normal action?

Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Practicing your aim and routine on a artificial golf green that isn’t as satisfactory as the greens at the course may be more damaging to your game than beneficial. If you want to improve your putting, you need to locate a realistic artificial grass intended for golf.
