Not all synthetic grasses are designed the same way or for the same intention. When looking for high-quality artificial grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just pick up a roll of turf from your local Metro New York big box store and trust that it will deliver the same golfing experience as the greens at the golf course. Particularly if that turf isn’t even built for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as you expect it to from club face to the cup too. It isn’t too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.

The characteristics and qualities to watch for when doing your research on synthetic turf for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play properties of your local golf courses. Let’s get started with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you should expect it will land by the grass properly, bounce appropriately, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic grass products won’t have the capacity to offer that, failing to replicate the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specially and scientifically developed to be realistic in this way and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more critical. How can you ever improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have natural action? Whether 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 doesn’t meet the same quality as the greens at the course can be detrimental to your game instead of helpful. If you’re looking to improve your game, you have to get a genuine feeling artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not just designed for residential use; many players you’ve heard of stand by it.
