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

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


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


Even though all of our golf greens look and feel like natural grass, Golden Bear is one of our customer’s preferred turfs. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-level 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 will swear you’re playing on organic grass.


There isn’t anything like seeing a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you’ll enjoy a gorgeous green with hardly any work all year round. You can decide on a variety of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get the look you want. Our experts can help design a uniquely customized experience that meets your needs.


When you invest in artificial turf, you immediately cut down on the amount of maintenance necessary to keep it looking great. Our turf remains durable year after year, use after use. It will not fade from sunlight or compress from heavy foot traffic. Never mow or water again when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you are not the one maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests can quickly take over large areas of natural 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 because it’s inedible, animals and bugs won’t hang around and eat 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.
