Not all artificial grasses are created equal or for the same reason. If you’re looking for professional-grade artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just pick up a roll of turf from your local Detroit and all of Michigan hardware store and trust that it will provide you with the same kind of experience as the greens at the golf course. Particularly if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you want a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to fully benefit from your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as it should from club face to the cup too. It isn’t too much to ask for, professional player or not.

The characteristics and qualities to check for when searching for artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play features of professional golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you assume it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic turf products can not offer that, failing to replicate the same bounce real greens do. Our products are specifically and scientifically made to be authentic in this regard and ensure 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How could you ever improve putt consistency if you’re 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, authentic golf ball action is important. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same quality as the greens at the course may be damaging to your game instead of helpful. If you’re looking to improve your game, you have to get a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of stand by it.
