Not all synthetic grasses are made equal or for the same purpose. When looking for professional-grade synthetic grass for a commercial or residential golf green project or installation, you can’t just buy a roll of turf from your local Vancouver big box store and trust that it will give you the same golfing experience as the greens at your local course. Also 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 behaverepond 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 properties and qualities to watch for when researching artificial grass for your golf green projects should be, as expected, the play properties of professional golf courses. Let’s start with landing on the green. When you successfully get a chip shot on the green, you assume it will land by the grass properly, bounce properly, and roll as intended. Hopefully, towards the cup. That last part is up to you, though. Unfortunately, many synthetic grass products can not deliver on that, unable to replicate the same bounce as natural greens. Our products are specifically and scientifically made to be realistic in this way and provide 20-25% more ball retention than other leading synthetic turf products.


Putting is arguably where the proper roll, aim, and natural golf ball action become even more important. How can you ever improve putt consistency when you are putting on a low-quality turf that lacks natural action? No matter if you struggle with cut-throughs, spin, shoving, putter release, or even recovering from missed putts, natural golf ball action matters. Practicing your aim and routine on a synthetic golf green that can’t match the same standard as the greens at the course can be more detrimental to your game than helpful. If you hope to improve your put skills, you want to discover a realistic artificial grass designed for golf. Our synthetic grass for golf isn’t only designed for residential use; even champion players you’ve heard of stand by it.
