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

Champions like Vijay Singh, Jim Furyk, and Hale Irwin all use and endorse the Southwest Greens premium synthetic golf putting greens. These professionals know all of our artificial golf greens are the best on the market. Why do they love our greens? Here are a few of the reasons.


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


Even though all of our golf greens are comparable to natural grass, one of our customer’s favorites is Golden Bear. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-quality artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, Golden Bear offers the best aim of any putting surface. The playability seems so real you will swear you are playing on organic grass.


There isn’t anything like looking out at a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you will enjoy a gorgeous green with virtually no effort all year round. You can choose from a large selection of grass blade types, colors, and weights to get exactly the look you want. Our experts can help create a completely personalized experience for your needs.


Choosing to invest in artificial turf, you immediately cut down on the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. Our turf maintains its durability year after year, use after use. It will not fade in the sun or flatten from heavy foot traffic. Mowing and watering are a thing of the past when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you aren’t in charge of maintaining your golf greens, you’re aware that weeds and pests will take over a vast area of traditional grass. Not only does this look bad, but it can also do a number on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about animals, insects, or weeds with artificial turf. Because there’s no nutritional value in artificial turf, animals and bugs won’t hang around to snack on 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.
