Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same intention. When looking for high-quality artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy the first roll of artificial grass you see from your local San Francisco hardware store and assume that it will provide you with the same golfing experience as the greens at facilities you play at. Also if that turf isn’t even made for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to a professional 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 isn’t too much to ask for, professional player or not.


The properties and qualities to check for when doing your research on artificial turf for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play characteristics of your local golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you would expect it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce correctly, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic turf products don’t have the ability to offer that, failing to give you the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specifically and scientifically made to be accurate in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.


Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How can you ever improve putt consistency if you are 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, natural golf ball action matters. Practicing your routine and aim on a synthetic golf green that can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course might be more damaging to your game than good for it. If you’re hoping to improve your game, you have to get a genuine feeling artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t just designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of will vouch for it.
