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

 

NOT EVERY ARTIFICIAL TURF IS BUILT EQUAL

If you’re searching for lifelike synthetic turf for a business or residential golf green project, you can’t collect a roll of turf from the district big box shop. Your experience will be nothing like what you experience at your home course.

When it comes to synthetic grass, you want a outcome in which a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and respond as naturally to an actual golf green. And to optimize your capital, 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 PICK A EXCELLENT TURF

One of the first qualities to watch for when exploring artificial turf for your golf green projects in Charlotte should be the play properties of real golf courses.


Let’s start with landing on the green.

When you land a chip shot on the green, you hope it to be acquired by the grass correctly, bounce adequately, and roll clearly, hopefully, in the direction of the cup. That remaining part is at your discretion, though. Sadly, many artificial grass products can’t fulfill on that, failing to provide the same bounce as genuine greens do. Our Golden Bear line of products is particularly and specifically intended to be realistic in this respect and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading artificial grass products.

 

WHY GOLDEN BEAR TURF

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and organic golf ball action becomes even more important. How can you potentially ameliorate putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have natural action?

Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even getting better from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. Practicing your routine and aim on a artificial golf green that isn’t as satisfactory as the greens at the course might be more harmful to your game than helpful. If you want to better your putting, you have to find a naturalistic synthetic grass made for golf.

Golden Bear is our top quality manufactured turf with a sincere feel, bite, look like real grass. In straightforward terms — it’s the most authentic playing surface available on the market presently. Here are two of our most popular Golden Bear products.
