Learn why many professional golfers prefer to play on synthetic turf.

Champions like Hale Irwin, Vijay Singh, and Jim Furyk all endorse and use the Southwest Greens premium synthetic golf putting greens. They know all of our artificial golf greens are the best on the market. Here are just a few of the many reasons why they love our greens.


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is an ideal turf for all facets of golf. Golfers are aware of the wear and tear that happens on a putting green or course. Regular grass is more susceptible to damage caused by golfing activities. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed more than 6000 golf greens worldwide as luxurious golf courses, backyard putting greens, and more.


While all of our golf greens look and feel like natural grass, Golden Bear is one of our customer’s preferred turfs. 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, Golden Bear gives you the best aim of any putting surface. The playability seems so real you would swear you’re on traditional grass.


There is nothing like enjoying a perfectly manicured green lawn. With synthetic turf, you will enjoy a gorgeous green with hardly any effort year-round. You can decide on a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get exactly the look you want. Our team can help design a completely customized experience to meet your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you instantly reduce the amount of maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. Our turf remains durable year after year, use after use. It won’t fade from the sun or flatten with heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you aren’t the one maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests will take over a wide area of organic grass. This not only looks bad, but it can also do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about insects, weeds, or animals with artificial turf. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t hang around and eat 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.
