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

Champions such as Jim Furyk, Hale Irwin, and Vijay Singh all use and endorse the premium synthetic golf putting greens by Southwest Greens. These professionals all know that our artificial golf greens are the best on the market. Here are some of the many reasons why they love our greens.


Thanks to its high-quality design, artificial grass is an excellent turf for all aspects of golf. All golfers are aware of the wear and tear that happens on a putting green or course. Natural grass is more susceptible to damage caused by playing the game. Southwest Greens has mastered the art and science of artificial turf installation. We’ve designed and installed 6000+ worldwide golf greens as backyard putting greens, luxurious golf courses, and more.


Even though all of our golf greens replicate natural grass, Golden Bear is one of our customer’s favorite turfs. Golden Bear turf is designed in partnership with Nicklaus Design. This high-level artificial turf rolls, bounces, and receives like a pro course. Shot after shot, the best aim of any putting surface is Golden Bear. The playability seems so real you will swear you’re using organic grass.


There is nothing like enjoying a green, perfectly manicured lawn. With synthetic turf, you can have a gorgeous green with little to no work year-round. You can select from a range of grass blade types, colors, and weights so you can have exactly the look you want. Our consultants can help create a truly personalized experience to meet your needs.


By investing in artificial turf, you immediately reduce the amount of maintenance required to keep it looking great. Turf is durable use after use, year after year. It won’t fade from the sun or pad down from heavy foot traffic. No more mowing or watering when you invest in synthetic turf.


Even if you aren’t the one maintaining your golf greens, you know weeds and pests can quickly take over large areas of organic grass. Not only does this look bad, but it can also wreak havoc on your allergies. You won’t have to worry about insects, weeds, or animals 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.
