How can you enhance putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have natural action?

 

NOT ALL ARTIFICIAL GRASS IS MADE EQUAL

If you’re seeking for lifelike artificial turf for a business or residential golf green design, you can’t collect a roll of turf from the domestic big box store. Your experience will be nothing like what you receive at your local course.

When it comes to synthetic grass, you want a outcome in which a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as clearly to an actual golf green. And to maximize your assets, you want a putt to break and roll sensibly from club face to the cup. It’s not too much to ask for, professional player or not.

 

HOW TO CHOOSE A FIRST-CLASS TURF

One of the first characteristics to search for when investigating artificial grass for your golf green projects in San Francisco should be the play characteristics of actual golf courses.


Let’s start with landing on the green.

When you land a chip shot on the green, you hope it to be obtained by the grass correctly, bounce adequately, and roll naturally, confidently, to the cup. That last part is as you please, though. Regrettably, many synthetic grass products can’t deliver on that, failing to supply the similar bounce as true greens do. Our Golden Bear line of products is particularly and mechanically intended to be sensible in this respect and supply 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.

 

WHY GOLDEN BEAR TURF

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and organic golf ball action turns even more crucial. How can you potentially ameliorate putt consistency if you’re putting on a poor quality turf that doesn’t have realistic action?

Whether you battle with cut-throughs, putter release, shoving, spin, or even getting better from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. Practicing your routine and aim on a artificial golf green that isn’t as adequate as the greens at the course might be more detrimental to your game than helpful. If you want to enhance your putting, you have to find a realistic synthetic grass made for golf.

Golden Bear is our premium-grade manufactured turf with a sincere bite, look, feel like organic grass. In simple terms — it’s the most authentic playing surface being sold on the market today. Here are some of our most popular Golden Bear products.
