Find out why many professional golfers prefer to play on synthetic turf.

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


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect turf for all aspects of golf. All golfers are used to the wear and tear that happens on a putting green of golf course. Natural grass is more likely to be damaged by golfing. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed over 6,000 golf greens worldwide as luxurious golf courses, backyard putting greens, 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-perormance artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, Golden Bear offers the best aim of any putting surface. The playability is so real you’d swear you’re playing on organic grass.


There is nothing like seeing a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you’ll enjoy a stunning green with little to no maintenance all year round. You can choose from a range of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get exactly the look you want. Our team can help create a truly personalized experience to meet your needs.


Choosing to invest in artificial turf, you immediately reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. It is durable use after use, year after year. It will not fade from sunlight or compress with heavy foot traffic. No more mowing or watering when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you aren’t the one maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests may take over a wide area of traditional grass. Not only does this look bad, but it also can do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about insects, weeds, or animals with artificial turf. Because because it’s inedible, animals and bugs won’t hang around and munch 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.
