Because of the vast expanses of grass required for a nice golf course, it comes as no surprise that in the desert climate of Arizona that it can be quite a challenge and drain on resources to keep a golf course in optimal condition. Fortunately, improvements in artificial turf have made it a popular and viable alternative to natural grass for golf courses, making it easier than ever to keep a well maintained place for people to enjoy the popular pastime of golf. Artificial turf is designed to mimic the look and feel of natural grass, while providing a durable and low maintenance surface for golfers to play on.
As any golf course owner is well aware, maintaining a golf course is quite expensive. However, the only maintenance that artificial turf requires is removing debris and sweeping the surface, which compared to natural grass is rather minimal. Natural grass requires a consistent regimen of watering, mowing, and fertilizing to keep it in good shape, and especially when considering the vast expanses of grass in a golf course, this becomes expensive very quickly.
The environmental impact of maintaining a golf course of natural grass is not small, either. Huge amounts of fertilizers, herbicides, and pesticides are necessary to keep the grass looking pristine. Artificial turf does not require any of these chemicals. It also is made from environmentally friendly materials which are recyclable at the end of their life. Furthermore, artificial turf brings a massive benefit in that it conserves water, which is especially important in drought prone areas like Arizona. With synthetic grass, golfers can still enjoy a high quality playing surface without the astronomical water usage and bills which would otherwise be necessary.
Artificial turf is also known to be quite durable, lasting long enough even with heavy usage to be sure that the initially high costs of purchasing and installing it will end up being a worthwhile investment in the long run. Compared to natural grass, it holds up better to heavy foot traffic, and golf carts and other equipment rolling over it. With proper maintenance, artificial turf will remain level and smooth without any significant divots, bumps, or depressions, providing a better playing experience for golfers.
Not only will golf course owners be sure to enjoy the benefits of artificial turf due to the durability, longevity, and decreased maintenance costs, as artificial turf also carries benefits which golfers will certainly appreciate. Synthetic grass provides a flat, smooth, uniform surface which is impossible for natural grass to provide. Irregularities in the soil, plus weather related factors, make the condition of the surface a consistent headache for golfers and those in charge with maintaining the course alike. The consistency of an artificial turf surface allows for better consistency and predictability for the movements of the ball, allowing athletes to enjoy an enhanced playing experience. The synthetic fibers are designed to be low friction, providing an ideal situation for ball roll. Also, while a traditional surface is prone to getting muddy after rainy periods, this is not an issue with artificial turf, ensuring that golfers won't be as limited by weather conditions. Artificial turf has a system in place to allow for easy water drainage, so puddles of standing water are not a concern.
