Most golf courses have a maintenance crew that mows and rolls greens.
Synthetic turf using artificial turf would eliminate over half of them and you could sell and/or eliminate all of the huge equipment.
The only other problem would be learning how it would react. Balls hit in the fairway may bounce more and roll out a lot further.
However, I think the positives outweigh the negatives.
One huge positive is the water problem.
Last summer in some areas there was a huge drought and most courses were yellow instead of green and a lot of courses suffered because of that. With synthetic turf, water is an afterthought.
Another huge positive would be the condition of the course.
From the second the snow melted in April, to the second the snow started falling in November, the course would be in ideal condition and there would be no dead spots of grass or even dirt spots. It would be like playing at Augusta every time out.
I’m not saying I want to see Pebble Beach rip up every inch of grass and put in turf, but for a local municipality of even courses out west that struggle with water supply, this may be a cool alternative.
And who knows, if a few courses do it, more may follow suit. Some courses have already started putting in turf on their tee boxes, maybe fairways are next.
