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

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


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is a perfect choice for all aspects of golf. Golfers are used to the wear and tear that happens on a putting green or course. Traditional grass is more vulnerable to damage caused by golfing. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We have designed and installed more than 6000 golf greens worldwide as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, 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-quality artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, Golden Bear has the best aim of any putting surface. The playability feels so real you’d swear you are playing on genuine grass.


There’s nothing like looking out at a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you’ll enjoy a gorgeous green with virtually no work year-round. You can select from a variety of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get what you want. Our consultants can help create a completely customized experience for your needs.


When you invest in artificial turf, you instantly reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. It remains durable year after year, use after use. It will not fade in the sun or flatten from heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you’re not in charge of maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests can quickly overcome large areas of organic grass. Not only does this look bad, but it also can do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about animals, insects, or weeds with artificial turf. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t stick around and snack 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.
