Golf Courses With Artificial Turf Greens?

It might be the main reason, but it's not the only reason.

No doubt. I agree. 
Like most things in life there are trade offs. 

The good news is lower maintenance, no punching the greens, you can play them in the winter time, etc...

The bad news is the hole locations don't change, they are never quite the same as "real" greens. etc... 

My bag is an ever-changing combination of clubs. 

A mix I am forever tinkering with.

I'd play on an artificial green, but only because I take up every opportunity to play. I don't think I'd like it though. The greens are the best part of the course. I know greens are hard to maintain, but an artificial green seems like it would deteriorate and affect putting performance.

First, welcome to TST.

I’ve putted on artificial greens in stores when testing out putters and the are “OK” but I think I would also prefer real grass.

I hear what you’re saying about golf store greens but presumably it would be something of higher quality. For example, I had a Pelz artificial green installed at my last house. It was amazing.

Now I'm envious.

    • Today, #5 par 3 playing 175 with a little help, I hit 6 iron to the fringe. With a front pin I hit an uphill/sidehill putt that entered the low side of the cup for birdie.  The Challenge is complete! This is the first year I actually made it! When you get down to a couple of holes it is so hard not to think about it. Through today, I have birdied all 18 and have eagled 2 par 5s.  All scores were from the blue tees (72.1/135).  Scorecard - The Legacy Golf & Tennis Club Scorecard Championship Course Scorecard 9-2023 Scorecard Yellow Course Click for printable Yellow Course Scorecard   For those interested, we had a US Open Qualifier this year and even par got you into a play-off (Medalist was -3, a couple at -1 and then 6 at E and the other 65 or so golfers at over par). Henry Grillo did a You Tube Video of his experience which highlighted the experience.
