Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re looking 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 Austin big box store and assume that it will provide you with the same play experience as the greens at the golf course. Also if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as it should from club face to the cup too. It is not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

The properties and qualities to look out for when doing your research on artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, unsurprisingly, the play properties of your local golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you would presume it will land by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll naturally. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic grass products won’t deliver on that, unable to replicate the same bounce real greens do. Our products are specifically and scientifically developed to be realistic in this way and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading artificial turf products.

Arguably, it’s putting where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How could you possibly improve putt consistency when you are putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? No matter if you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Practicing your aim and game on a synthetic golf green that can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course might be more detrimental to your game than helpful. If you’re looking to improve your putting, you have to discover a genuine feeling artificial grass designed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t just designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of endorse it.
