Alternaturf loves golf! We started out installing synthetic putting greens and tees for golf clubs 16 years ago and have never looked backed! Alternaturf supplies the full range of golf products including synthetic grass putting greens, driving ranges, tees, fairways and mini-golf facilities.
By employing turf with characteristics like natural grass and a unique base formula that absorbs the impact of shots, our green system allows the ball to check up and roll naturally. Likewise, our 50mm sand and rubber infilled artificial tee allows players to enjoy high performance tees all year round, without altering their swing!
Off the course, we have a synthetic golf turf for every level of ability and every requirement. The non-directional construction of our short pile golf products allows the ball to roll smoothly, while responding to chips and pitches just like real grass. Our range of turf can be contoured to any shape and is complemented by our range of attractive, natural looking fringe grasses. If you want to improve your short game or just have heaps of family fun, an Alternaturf green is the answer!
