Artificial Grass Golf Greens
Artificial grass is a surface of synthetic fibres, made to look and feel like real grass. Synthetic sports grounds have come on a long way since they were first introduced in the 1970’s as modern day examples appear as natural as possible in terms of both their appearance and texture. Artificial turf has become more and more popular due to the demand for low maintenance, heavy-duty surfaces that can withstand regular footfall.
In recent years, it has become more and more common to see artificial grass on golf courses as owners realise the benefits of having artificial turf laid. Artificial greens allow players to practise without worrying about hampering the quality of the ground, which delivers excellent performance as well as being aesthetically pleasing. In fact, recent technological advances allow for putting surfaces to perfectly mimic ball movement on natural grass.
Smaller courses in particular endure intensive usage and can become worn down and patchy, especially in adverse weather conditions. It’s easy to see why the lush green appearance of artificial turf is becoming a popular option for many courses. No mud or puddles, and mowing, trimming and fertilizing are all worries of the past.
In other words, huge savings in time, work and money!
Even golfing professionals are now installing synthetic greens in their gardens for practise, as they simply don’t have the time to be able to maintain great quality turf. They know synthetic greens are just as realistic, but much more consistent, practical and resilient, as some of the best synthetic greens are now as good as the best natural turf greens.
