Cover greens with Curlex Green Savers in fall and start golfing earlier in spring…

Curlex Green Savers are natural excelsior blankets that provide winter protection against drying winds, frost penetration, grass desiccation, and freezing cold on all golf course greens.


Curlex Green Savers maintain a more constant surface temperature and allow excellent air circulation.  Curlex Green Savers minimize heat build up and the freeze-thaw cycle, which helps to establish quality greens early in the season, thus extending the playing season by two to three weeks.
