Not all artificial grasses are created equal or for the same purpose. If you’re looking for high-quality 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 Pittsburgh hardware store and expect it to that it will provide you with the same golfing experience as the greens at your local course. Also if that turf isn’t even made for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and behave as naturally to a professional golf green as possible. And to maximize 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 characteristics and qualities to look out for when doing your research on artificial turf for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play properties of actual golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you would expect it to be received by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial turf products will not provide that, unable to provide the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specifically and scientifically designed to be authentic in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How can you ever improve putt consistency when you’re 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, 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 may be damaging to your game instead of beneficial.
