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

 

NOT ALL ARTIFICIAL TURF IS CREATED EQUAL

If you’re looking for lifelike synthetic grass for a business or residential golf green project, you can’t collect a roll of turf from the domestic big box shop. Your experience will unlike what you experience at your local course.

When it comes to artificial grass, you want a product whereupon a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to a real golf green. And to optimize your assets, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup. It’s not being unreasonable, professional player or not.

 

HOW TO SELECT A FIRST-CLASS TURF

One of the first features to search for when investigating synthetic grass for your golf green projects in Houston should be the play properties 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 received by the grass accurately, bounce adequately, and roll clearly, expectantly, to the cup. That final part is at your discretion, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products can’t fulfill on that, failing to provide the same bounce as true greens do. Our Golden Bear line of business is especially and specifically designed to be sensible in this context and supply 20-25% more ball retention than other foremost artificial turf products.

 

WHY GOLDEN BEAR TURF

Putting is arguably where the appropriate roll, aim, and natural golf ball action turns even more vital. How can you conceivably enhance putt uniformity if you’re putting on a poor quality turf that doesn’t have realistic action?

Whether you battle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even getting better from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Rehearsing your routine and aim on a synthetic golf green that isn’t as adequate as the greens at the course may be more damaging to your game than helpful. If you want to improve your putting, you have to locate a life-like artificial grass made for golf.
