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

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


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect turf for all areas of golf. Any golfer is familiar with the wear and tear that happens on a putting green or 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 over 6,000 worldwide golf greens as luxurious golf courses, backyard putting greens, and more.


While all of our golf greens look and feel like natural grass, one of our customer’s favorites is Golden Bear. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-level 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 feels so real you will swear you’re on genuine grass.


There is nothing like seeing a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you will see a stunning green with little to no maintenance all year long. You can choose from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can get the look you want. Our consultants can help design a uniquely customized experience for your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you instantly cut down on the amount of maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. It stays durable use after use, year after year. It will not fade in the sun or pad down with heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not responsible for maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests can quickly overtake large areas of natural grass. This not only looks bad, but it can also do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about weeds, animals, or insects with artificial turf. Because there’s no nutritional value in artificial turf, animals and bugs won’t hang around and eat 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.
