About Us

 

The Mirage USA Turf is Exclusively Manufactured in a Very Unique and Proprietary 7 Step Process.

  1. Resin pellets are melted.
  2. The pellets are then extruded into fiber monofilament (this is where the uv and color concentrates are added).
  3. The monofilament is then put through a special heating, texturizing process that curls the fiber into a spring set fiber.
  4. The finished spring-set fibers are then tufted (sewn) into a primary double stable-loc backing.
  5. Then the tufted turf is sent to the coating mill oven for the secondary final backing.
  6. Once the selected backing is melted onto the turf, it is then tip sheared to give the top fibers a smooth and uniform composite.
  7. Once the turf is complete, it is sent to the mirage warehouse in dalton, georgia, where it is cut to size and shipped out.

Do Not Accept Imitations!

Our Mirage Turf is exclusively manufactured to our proprietary specifications, such as: fiber design, fiber color, tufting density and weight, and backings. We accomplish this with a strategic alliance with our specialized manufacturing partners. This assures us that our finished turf products will be manufactured using the best components in the world.Please don’t be fooled by anyone else who states they can duplicate or make our mirage turf.

The Birth Of The Turf Of The Millennium

The Mirage Turf System was introduced in September, 1998 by Dale G. Potts. Dale is the creator of the world’s first remote-controlled, miniature Blimp-Cam. The Blimp-Cam product is being used throughout the world to capture aerial photos and live broadcasts of events. It has been used by several major networks, including ABC, NBC, CBS and CNN.

Dale and his Blimp-Cam have been seen on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, at the 1996 & 1998 Super Bowl, TNT Atlanta Braves baseball games and at the Cleveland Cavalier NBA games.

“I thought my real grass putting green would be maintenance-free. Little did I  realize that I would have to mow it 4 to 5 times a week, buy a special ‘tiff blade’ mower, aerate the green, over-seed it once a year, and constantly spread it with different types of chemicals. It was a real nightmare! Because of the high maintenance, what I really needed was a full-time greens-keeper!”

After about a year of fighting the maintenance of his real bent-grass putting green, dale decided to remove it and install a synthetic putting green in his backyard.

The synthetic turf material on the market at that time was constructed using vertical fibers that required several layers of deep sand fill to help the fibers stand upright. Although there were several different companies offering variations of this type of synthetic turf, the turf material was all based on the same premise – they all needed deep layers of sand and top dressing to make the fibers stand upright.

It didn’t take long before he became frustrated with certain quirks associated with his new synthetic putting green:

  • It required an extensive amount of sand fill, which created a very fast and erratic putting surface.
  • It was hard to control the ball speed, sometimes causing the ball to skip or hop.
  • Deep sand-filled putting surfaces are very labor-intensive and very expensive.
  • This particular synthetic turf required periodic broom sweeping to help the fibers stand upright and keep the sand level.
  • Over time, it became difficult to keep the fibers standing upright and the surface simply became too fast – it was essentially like putting on sand!
  • Because deep sand-filled turf has a grain, the ball does not roll the same in all directions.
  • Aesthetically, single-color synthetic surfaces were less-natural-looking, almost fake-looking, because the fibers were all one shinny color. (a real green is not perfect in color. Natural grass blades are different shades of green.)

The Mirage Turf System consists of a synthetic turf that is made of polypropylene and nylon, textured, multi-color fibers that have been naturally bent to create a real bent-grass look. The fibers stand up naturally and do not require any sand in-fill to help them stand up or make the putting surface smooth. The spring-set, textured fibers of this new turf have been designed to spring or “bounce back”, thus creating a soft, spongy surface making it realistic to chip onto.

The Mirage Turf System does not require deep sand in-fill to create proper ball-speed (our Tour-Putt product has stimp meter readings comparable to PGA Greens). Not only does the Mirage Turf look and perform more like a bent-grass putting green, it also costs less, because the installation process is not nearly as time-consuming.

It is not just the turf material that makes up a professional synthetic putting green, it is the process or system of the finished product. Thus, came the birth of the mirage turf putting green system. The mirage turf system is most realistic, best-performing, multi-color, bent-grass putting surface in the world!
