Not all artificial grasses are created equal or for the same intention. If you’re looking for professional-grade synthetic grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Charlotte 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 designed for golf. No, you need a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and behaverepond as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to maximize your investment, you want a putt to break and roll realistically from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.


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


Arguably, it’s putting where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How can you possibly improve putt consistency if you are putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? Regardless of whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. 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 hope to improve your game, you have to find a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed to this end; many professional players you’ve heard of will vouch for it.


When you understand that synthetic golf greens are not only developed for residential backyard putting greens but are also often used at a lot of your favorite professional golf courses, you might be curious about how professional golfers feel about using it. Well, over 55 PGA golf icons, including Jack Nicklaus, Rickie Fowler, Annika Sörenstam, and Hale Irwin stand by the high quality of Southwest Greens Charlotte’s artificial grass products.
