TigerTurf SuperGreen

SuperGreen is a tufted bowls carpet manufactured by TigerTurf. Since pioneering the first all-weather surfaces for bowls in 1989, TigerTurf has installed over 500 SuperGreen greens in New Zealand with many more sold in Australia and through our Asian Agents. TigerTurf’s part sand filled SuperGreen surface provides bowlers with a true, consistent surface that is available for play throughout a 12-month season. TigerTurf offer base construction including a TigerBonded laser levelled base, drainage, paths, installation and lighting systems. Our expert installers ensure a superior performance green.

TigerTurf manufactures its own turfs

Manufactured in our Auckland factory, TigerTurf SuperGreen has proved to be one of the most popular artificial green bowling surfaces. With World Bowls accreditation, it offers clubs great value for their investment.

TigerTurf manufactures all the tufted turf products we supply. This means we can quickly implement technical advancements made in the production of the yarns and components we use for our high performance sports surfaces.

The benefit for our clients is that we are continuously improving our products, including bowling greens.

Durability and performance of SuperGreen upgraded

TigerTurf SuperGreen is a sand-dressed system designed to meet the highest level of performance for bowling greens. It is made from the latest polyethylene yarns that hold more sand securely within the turf surface to further improve the durability of this excellent bowls surface.

TigerTurf teams take care with every detail of installation

TigerTurf’s SuperGreen system is installed and finished to the very highest standards. TigerTurf managed the complete installation project for the club. After lifting and disposing of the old turf, the team partially excavated the area improving the freedraining sub-base.

The base was levelled and TigerBonded which maintains stability beneath the green surface. The team completed the project with new plinths and new turf for the existing ditch walls.

Easy maintenance of TigerTurf gives time to enjoy bowling

“Maintenance is not a problem. We use mobile equipment to blow leaves off the surface so hey don’t damage the green,” Michael McMahon said. The SuperGreen surface provides bowlers with a true, consistent surface that is available for play throughout a 12 month season.
