Not all artificial grasses are designed the same way or for the same purpose. If you’re looking for realistic synthetic grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Houston sporting goods store and trust that it will deliver the same play experience as the greens at the golf course. Particularly 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 as it should from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want for your lawn, professional player or not.


The properties and qualities to check for when searching for synthetic turf for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play features of actual golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you land a chip shot on the green, you would assume it will land by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll naturally. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic grass products can’t provide that, failing to give you the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specially and scientifically designed to be accurate in this way and grant 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.


Arguably, it’s putting where the proper roll, aim, and authentic golf ball action become even more critical. How could you possibly improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? Regardless of whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same quality as the greens at the course could be detrimental to your game instead of helpful. If you hope to improve your putting, you want to get a genuine feeling artificial grass designed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not just designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of endorse it.
