Artificial grass for golf

Purchasing artificial grass for golf use is a large investment as this type of artificial grass costs more than your average residential artificial grass because it is specifically made to withstand excessive golf use - or it should be. Therefore we  have listed some points to look out for that distinguishes artificial grass for golf use to regular artificial grass:

Requirements

Pile Height Higher Than 25mm

A thick pile height is required to be able to stand a tee up in, anything over 65,000 stitches per square meter should be sufficient.

- Multi-Directional Pile

A pile with strands that are multi-directional means that, firstly the artificial grass is a much more stable surface to hold a tee without it falling and secondly you can hit the ball of the surface without a tee. Being able to hit the ball straight off the surface is imperative when playing golf and only a multi-direction pile will allow you to do this, as the surface is compact enough to hit down onto the ball but soft enough so you can also hit through the ball as you would on natural grass.

- Golf Guarantee

Without this the artificial grass is not fit for golf use and won't last a season at the very most. The guarantee shows that the artificial grass has been tested and put through its paces under golf use.

Putting Greens

Requirements

A Short Pile Height up to 25mm

Just like a realistic grass green, this needs to be short and compact. There should be a similar stitch rate to the tee bed grass, over 65,000 stitches per square meter, as the surface needs to be compact enough for a true roll of the golf ball.

- Multi-Directional Pile

Rather than the artificial grass strands being straight, they need to be multi-directional. This is because there will then be no pile direction unlike there is with straight strands, which means that the ball will run the same from all angles across the artificial grass.

- Golf Guarantee

Again, without this the artificial grass is not fit for golf use and won't last a season at the very most. The guarantee shows that the artificial grass has been tested and put through its paces under golf use.
