Not all synthetic grasses are designed the same way or for the same reason. When looking for realistic synthetic grass 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 Naperville sporting goods store and trust 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 want a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to an actual golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.

The features and qualities to look out for when researching artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play attributes of actual golf courses. Let’s get started with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you should presume it to be received 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 do not have the ability to deliver on that, failing to give you the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specifically and scientifically designed to be realistic in this way and ensure 20-25% more ball retention than other leading artificial grass products.

Arguably, it’s putting where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more important. How could you ever improve putt consistency when you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, authentic golf ball action is important. Practicing your routine and aim on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same standard as the greens at the course could be detrimental to your game instead of helpful. If you’re looking to improve your putting, you want to get a realistic artificial grass designed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t just designed to this end; even champion players you’ve heard of stand by it.
