Not all artificial grasses are made equal or for the same reason. When looking for high-quality artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Oakley hardware store and assume that it will provide you with the same play experience as the greens at the golf course. Particularly if that turf isn’t even made for golf. No, you want a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as you expect it to from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

The features and qualities to watch for when searching for artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play properties of actual golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you presume it will land by the grass properly, bounce appropriately, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial turf products can not provide that, failing to replicate the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specifically and scientifically designed to be realistic in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading artificial grass products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more important. How can you ever improve putt consistency when you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? No matter if you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action is important. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that doesn’t meet the same standard as the greens at the course could be more detrimental to your game than helpful. If you hope to improve your game, you need to find a genuine feeling artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not only designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of stand by it.

When you see that synthetic golf greens are not just made for residential backyard putting greens but are also often used at lots of your favorite professional golf courses, you could wonder how professional golfers feel about golfing on it.

The Waldorf Astoria, Bentley, Peter Millar, Samsung, and Google, are a few examples of consumers that believe in our products.
