Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same reason. If you’re searching for high-quality synthetic grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Asheville hardware store and expect it to that it will deliver the same play experience as the greens at facilities you play at. Particularly if that turf isn’t even made for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to an actual golf green as possible. And to fully benefit from your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as you expect it to from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want for your lawn, professional player or not.

The characteristics and qualities to check for when doing your research on artificial turf for your golf green projects should be, predictably, the play attributes of professional golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you land a chip shot on the green, you presume it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce correctly, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products won’t provide that, unable to give you the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specially and scientifically designed to be accurate in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How could you ever improve putt consistency when you’re putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Practicing your routine and aim on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same quality as the greens at the course can be damaging to your game instead of helpful. If you’re looking to improve your putting, you want to get a genuine feeling artificial grass developed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not only designed for residential use; many professional players you’ve heard of will vouch for it.
