Not all artificial grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. If you’re searching for professional-grade synthetic grass 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 Edmonton sporting goods store and expect it to that it will provide you with the same golfing experience as the greens at your local course. Especially if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you should have a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and repond as naturally to an actual 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 attributes and qualities to look out for when researching synthetic grass for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play attributes of your local golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you hit a chip shot on the green, you presume it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce appropriately, and roll where you expect it to. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial turf products do not provide that, unable to give you the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specially and scientifically developed to be authentic in this regard and grant 20-25% more ball retention than other leading artificial turf products.

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How can you possibly improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that doesn’t have natural action? Regardless of whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, natural golf ball action is important. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that doesn’t meet the same standard as the greens at the course could be damaging to your game instead of beneficial. If you’re hoping to improve your putting, you want to find a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed for residential use; a lot of professional players you’ve heard of stand by it.
