Find out why so many professional golfers prefer to play on synthetic turf.

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


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is an ideal turf for all areas of golf. All golfers are aware of the wear that happens on a course or putting green. Natural grass is more likely to be damaged by playing the game. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We have designed and installed 6000+ golf greens across the globe as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.


Even though all of our golf greens replicate natural grass, one of our customer’s favorites 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 feels so real you will swear you’re on genuine grass.


There isn’t anything like enjoying a perfectly manicured green lawn. With synthetic turf, you will have a stunning green with virtually no work all year round. You can select from a range of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can have exactly the look you want. Our experts can help create a completely customized experience that meets your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you instantly virtually eliminate the maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. Our turf maintains its durability use after use, year after year. It won’t fade in the sun or compress with heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not responsible for maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests may take over large areas of natural grass. This not only looks bad, but weeds and pests can also wreak havoc on your allergies. With artificial turf, you won’t have to worry about animals, insects, or weeds. Because artificial turf has no nutritional value, animals and bugs won’t hang around to 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.
