Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same intention. If you’re looking for realistic synthetic grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just pick up a roll of turf from your local Greenwich big box store and trust that it will deliver the same golfing experience as the greens at the golf course. Especially if that turf isn’t even made for golf. No, you need a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to a real golf green as possible. And to get the most out of your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as it should from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.

The attributes and qualities to watch for when researching synthetic grass for your golf green projects should be, unsurprisingly, the play characteristics of actual golf courses. Let’s get started with landing on the green. When you land a chip shot on the green, you should 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 grass products don’t offer that, failing to replicate the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specifically and scientifically developed to be realistic in this way and grant 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more important. How could you possibly improve putt consistency if you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? Regardless of whether 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 can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course may be damaging to your game instead of helpful. If you’re hoping to improve your putting, you want to discover a genuine feeling artificial grass developed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not just designed to this end; even champion players you’ve heard of stand by it.
