Artificial Grass Greens Bring Your Golf Game Up to Par

December 21, 2013 by · Leave a Comment 

Golfers know that the best way to improve their scores is to work on their short game. Being able to chip and putt the ball accurately can take strokes off of anyone’s scorecard. Practicing your chipping and putting usually means taking your clubs to the course and hitting their practice green. For busy golfers, this can be tough to do on a regular basis and their games can suffer as a result.

Now imagine if you were able to practice your short game at home anytime you wanted to. This can be a reality if you install your own practice green in your backyard. It might seem like this is something that only belongs in the backyards of millionaires, but anyone can afford to build their own putting green thanks to the low cost of buying artificial grass wholesale. It doesn’t take a lot of money to add a unique feature to your home that you’ll use again and again.

You have many different choices when it comes to selecting the right type of artificial grass for your putting surface. However, not all artificial turfs are right for use as a practice green. You’ll want to look for artificial grasses that have certain qualities:

Flatness: You want to practice your putting on a smooth surface — otherwise, uneven rolls can lead to putts going offline. This will leave you unable to properly gauge your putting. Certain types of artificial grasses offer flatness and provide a smoother roll.

High Density: Your putting green is going to get a lot use and have a lot of foot traffic over the years. You’ll want to select a high density artificial turf material that can withstand being used frequently without getting worn out.

Protection from the Sun: When you install a putting green in your backyard, it’s going to be exposed to direct sunlight on a regular basis. You want to make sure that the type of artificial turf you select will maintain its healthy, natural look even after exposure to UV rays from the sun.

Before installing your putting green, you’ll want to check with an artificial grass supplier to see which types of turf are right for your needs. You may also want to put in a second type of turf with longer blades if you would like to simulate the fringe of the green or chipping from off of the green. Once you have your turf selected, installing your turf and getting your putting green finalized is a breeze.
