To date, most synthetic back yard putting surfaces are installed using several inches and layers of sand fill to make the grass fibers stand up, thus causing the putting surface to become very fast. These surfaces require periodic broom sweeping to keep the fibers upright, and water-rolling to keep the sand level.
Most of these synthetic turf surfaces have a grain pattern that runs one way throughout the carpet, making the ball skip or hop across the grain; these sand-filled greens also need periodic sand-fill and expensive top dressing.
To create a ball speed that is required of "tour greens", you need to fill the turf fibers with sand and top dress right up to the top of the fibers. At that point, you are putting almost entirely on sand and not the fibers. In time, the sand will settle or wash out, and your sand-filled green will become much slower.
Now, with the new Mirage Tour Putt Turf System, there is no need for deep sand-fill or top dressing. Our new turf is designed "off the shelf" to putt just like a Tour Green.
The Mirage Tour-Putt surface has Stimp speeds comparable to most PGA greens, without using deep sand infill or top dressings. Our new turf fibers have been manufactured to stand up naturally, and our turf has virtually no grain, thus the ball rolls the same in all directions. The tips of the fibers have been bent to simulate the true roll of a real bent grass green.

Real Grass Greens:
Many people have dreamed of having real grass putting greens in their back-yards. More often, these dreams turn into nightmares, as their owners discover the incredible expense and time it takes to maintain a real grass putting green.
Real grass putting greens are very expensive to construct and maintain. They require almost daily mowing and watering; they need frequent fertilizing, veticutting, winter overseeding, aerating, and an occasional application of sand and top dressing. You need a special expensive "tiff" style mower to cut the blades of grass short enough to putt. This is why most home owners, due to sheer frustration, end up tearing their real grass putting surface out.
Mirage Turf Putting Green:
This is the cost effective, low-maintenance alternate way of having a practice putting green in your own backyard.
Our greens need no watering, mowing, or fertilizing. Mirage greens last many years, and will not be damaged by normal sun, wind, rain, snow, or ice.
Best of all, our Mirage Turf putting surface looks and putts just like real grass putting greens.
Our turf has undergone several years of research and development, creating an efficient, yet affordable proprietary installation process.
Mirage Greens can even be chipped onto, and they have excellent ball holding capabilities.

is the finest synthetic putting surface in the world!
