The difference between Mirage turf fibers and other synthetic turf begins with
the manufacturing process. Our specially designed
spring set turf fibers are manufactured to interlock
with each other, creating a realistic bent fiber
look, just like "real bent grass" greens.
Note: Most deep sand-filled synthetic turf has
straight end fibers that must be sand filled and
periodically rolled with a heavy water-filled
sod roller. Our turf fibers have been manufactured
to stand-up naturally. Unlike other synthetic
fibers, our fibers have been made with a dulled
finish, rather than made shiny. This helps create
a natural, real looking green.
Mirage Turf is so realistic, we have manufactured "mower and grain pattern
marks" in it! Our new Mirage Tour-Putt™ requires
no deep sand in-fill, and it putts the same speed
as most PGA greens. It is the most realistic synthetic
bent-grass turf on the market.
Mirage has three models of turf: one that simulates
a tournament green (bent grass), one that simulates
a country club green, and one that simulates a
municipal green (Bermuda grass).
Mirage Turf is assembled using the finest UV-treated polypropylene & nylon,
water-resistant fibers. Our turf carries a 10
year limited warranty against excessive wear and
fading, and resists normal rain, snow, wind, freeze
and sun. Mirage Turf has been installed from the
cold, freezing climates of Canada to the hot,
arid deserts of the American west, to the rainy,
humid areas of Hawaii and Florida.
When was the last time you owned something that was totally "maintenance
free?" Our putting surface is "hassle-free".
The Mirage non-sand filled turf is as maintenance
free as it gets, even when partially infill assisted/weighted.
Our specially designed, interlocking spring set
fibers help hold the infill in place, while stabilizing
the root of the fiber. Even our infill-assisted/weighted
greens are virtually maintenance free. Once installed,
just keep the leaves and debris off the surface,
just like you would with a real putting green.
You can even vacuum our turf!!!
Don't be fooled by other companies that state
their turf product is totally "maintenance
free." This is as far from the truth as it
gets. Unlike Mirage Turf, synthetic sand-filled
greens require periodic sanding, top dressing,
sweeping and water rolling.
Real bent grass putting greens are very expensive to install and require expensive
daily maintenance. Just ask a golf course superintendent
or anyone who has owed a real grass putting green
about the required maintenance, and I'm sure you
will not want a real bent grass green in your
Yes! A Mirage Putting Green can be made to look just like real grass tour greens.
Just about any size or shape you want can be
Yes! Our special shock-absorbing backing, coupled
with the spring action inter-locking fibers, makes
our surface "check-up," similar to most
real grass greens. Please keep in mind that no
synthetic putting surface will hold a ball exactly
like a real tour green, and don't let anyone tell
you differently. Our greens are as close as it
gets to real grass greens. Just look at our customer
list and we're sure you'll agree.
No, absolutely not! Miniature golf turf is usually
installed as a glue down on a cement, and their
fibers are short and not very dense. They putt
very fast, and the turf does not last very long.
No! Only certified and trained Mirage Dealers
can install the Mirage Turf System.
