Not all artificial grasses are created equal or for the same reason. If you’re searching for professional-grade artificial turf for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Atlanta big box store and trust that it will deliver the same play experience as the greens at your local course. Especially if that turf isn’t even designed for golf. No, you want a product where a chip shot will land, bounce, roll, stop, and behave as naturally to a real golf green as possible. And to fully benefit from your investment, you want a putt to break and roll as it should from club face to the cup too. It’s not too much to want top quality turf, professional player or not.

The features and qualities to watch for when researching artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, predictably, the play properties of your local golf courses. Let’s begin with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you would assume it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll naturally. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products can’t offer that, failing to provide the same bounce natural grass does. Our products are specially and scientifically developed to be authentic in this regard and grant 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic grass products.

Arguably, putting is where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How can you possibly improve putt consistency if you’re putting on a low-quality turf that does not have natural action? Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, authentic golf ball action is important. Practicing your routine and aim on a synthetic golf green that can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course might be more damaging to your game than good for it. If you’re hoping to improve your put skills, you need to get a realistic artificial grass made for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf is not just designed for residential use; even champion players you’ve heard of endorse it.

When you recognize that synthetic golf greens aren’t just made for residential backyard putting greens but are also widely used at a lot of your favorite professional golf courses, you might be curious about how the pros feel about golfing on it. Well, over 55 PGA golf icons, like Jack Nicklaus, Rickie Fowler, Annika Sörenstam, and Hale Irwin believe in the high quality of Southwest Greens of Atlanta’s artificial grass products. Many professional courses use our synthetic turf for their putting greens so they can save costs and for the quality of top-quality synthetic turf, including Top of the Rock Golf Course in Missouri and The Hong Kong Golf and Tennis Academy. And while you’ll find that our products make excellent turf for residential properties, they are also used by many commercial customers. The Waldorf Astoria, Google, Samsung, Bently, and Petter Miller, to name a few, that believe in our products.

Our artificial grass is the best quality around, no doubt. That’s why we’ve been awarded Golf Digest's Best Synthetic Putting Greens award from 2016-2020. If you’re a professional or beginner, or even a commercial consumer, Southwest Greens of Atlanta’s quality artificial grass is the best choice for true bounce, aim, and roll on synthetic turf.
