The game of golf and artificial turf

Did you know that some of that green grass you see at your favorite golf course and driving range is artificial?

Really.

For example, the tee boxes at several local North Texas country clubs are fake grass.  Well, let’s be more elegant: artificial turfgrass.  They have helped do the following:

  • Last longer than traditional turf
  • Lower the maintenance time for the boxes
  • Allow more play as the boxes can take more wear and tear
  • Require no water, so are dry most of the time (except for Mother Nature’s watering).

So, the next time you are at your local driving range, take a look at the tee box more carefully.  And the pitching and putting greens, too.
