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

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


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect turf for all areas of golf. Golfers are aware of the wear that happens on a course or putting green. Traditional grass is more likely to be damaged by golfing. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed 6000+ worldwide golf greens as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.


While all of our golf greens mimic natural grass, one of our customer’s favorite turfs is Golden Bear. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-perormance artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, Golden Bear has the best aim of any putting surface. The playability is so real you’d swear you are using organic grass.


There’s nothing like enjoying a perfectly manicured green lawn. With synthetic turf, you’ll see a gorgeous green with virtually no maintenance year-round. You can choose from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get the look you want. Our experts can help develop a completely customized experience that meets your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you immediately cut down on the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. It maintains its durability year after year, use after use. It won’t fade from the sun or flatten with heavy foot traffic. You won’t have to mow or water when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not responsible for maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests may overcome large areas of traditional grass. This not only looks bad, but weeds and pests can also do a number on your allergies. With artificial turf, you won’t have to worry about weeds, animals, or insects. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t hang around and snack 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.
