Not all artificial grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re looking for realistic artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy the first roll of artificial grass you see from your local Fresno sporting goods store and trust that it will give you the same play experience as the greens at your local course. Also if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you want a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and react as naturally to an actual golf green as possible. And to get the most out of 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 top quality turf, professional player or not.

The properties and qualities to look out for when doing your research on artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, unsurprisingly, the play features of your local golf courses. Let’s get started with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you would presume it will land by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products don’t have the capacity to deliver on that, unable to give you the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specially and scientifically made to be authentic in this way and ensure 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.

Arguably, it’s putting where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more important. How could you possibly improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have natural action? No matter if 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 can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course can be damaging to your game instead of beneficial. If you’re hoping to improve your put skills, you want to find a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed for residential use; many professional players you’ve heard of endorse it.
