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

Champions such as Hale Irwin, Vijay Singh, and Jim Furyk all endorse and use the Southwest Greens premium synthetic golf putting greens. These professionals all know that our artificial greens are the best on the market. Here are just some of the many reasons why they love our greens.


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect choice for all aspects of golf. Any golfer is aware of the wear and tear that happens on a putting green of golf course. Traditional grass is more likely to be damaged by playing the game. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We have 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, Golden Bear is one of our customer’s favorites. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-quality artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, the best aim of any putting surface is Golden Bear. The playability is so real you will swear you are on natural grass.


There is nothing like seeing a perfectly manicured green lawn. With synthetic turf, you’ll see a stunning green with little to no maintenance all year round. You can decide on a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get exactly what you want. Our team can help create a uniquely customized experience for your needs.


Choosing to invest in artificial turf, you immediately reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. Our turf stays durable use after use, year after year. It will not fade from sunlight or flatten with heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not the one maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests may take over a vast area of organic grass. This not only looks bad, but it also can wreak havoc on your allergies. With artificial turf, you won’t have to worry about insects, weeds, or animals. Because artificial turf has no nutritional value, animals and bugs won’t hang around to 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.
