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

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


Because of its high-quality design, artificial grass is an excellent surface for all areas of golf. Any golfer is used to the wear and tear that happens on a putting green or course. Natural grass is more vulnerable to damage caused by golfing. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed 6000+ golf greens across the globe as luxurious golf courses, backyard putting greens, and more.


While all of our golf greens look and feel like 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 gives you the best aim of any putting surface. The playability feels so real you would swear you are on natural grass.


There isn’t anything like seeing a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you can see a gorgeous green with little to no work all year round. You can choose from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get exactly the look you want. Our experts can help design a truly personalized experience for your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you instantly reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. It stays durable year after year, use after use. It won’t fade from sunlight or compress from heavy foot traffic. No more mowing or watering when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not responsible for maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests will overtake a vast area of natural grass. Not only does this look bad, but it can also wreak havoc on your allergies. With artificial turf, you won’t have to worry about animals, insects, or weeds. Because they can’t eat it, animals and bugs won’t stick around to munch 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.
