Not all synthetic grasses are made 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 pick up a roll of turf from your local Toronto hardware store and trust that it will provide you with the same kind of experience as the greens at your local course. Particularly 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 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 for your lawn, professional player or not.

The properties and qualities to look out for when researching artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, unsurprisingly, the play characteristics of professional golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you would expect it will be accepted by the grass properly, bounce correctly, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many artificial grass products do not have the capacity to provide that, failing to give you the same bounce real greens do. Our products are specially and scientifically made to be authentic in this regard and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.

Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and true golf ball action become even more critical. How could you ever improve putt consistency if you are putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? Whether you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, realistic golf ball action matters. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that isn’t up to the same standard as the greens at the course may be more detrimental to your game than beneficial. If you hope to improve your put skills, you have to get a realistic artificial grass developed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed to this end; a lot of professional players you’ve heard of stand by it.

When you see that synthetic golf greens aren’t simply developed for residential backyard putting greens but are also widely used at lots of your favorite professional golf courses, you may want to know how professional golfers feel about golfing on it.
