A zone represents an area of the real world, generally around 25x25 meters, which you can see in the Turf application. Players can take over zones by, in the real world, stepping into them with Turf and their GPS turned on.
See main article: Points
World Heritage Site
Is located on a UNESCO World heritage site. Only one world heritage zone per site.
Train station zone
A train station zone is a zone placed on a platform at a train station.
National park zone

A monument zone is placed in the direct vicinity to or directly on a monument. A monument is a type of structure that was explicitly created to commemorate a person or event, or which has become important to a social group as a part of their remembrance of historic times or cultural heritage. Sculptures and equivalent art objects without a historical connection will not be given monument status.
A holy zone are placed near a church, mosque, synagogue or similar, or on a graveyard. The zone must be well defined by the religious building (i e visible at a close range), and in the absolute vicinity of the holy building, if it not is located in a graveyard.
A bridge is a structure built to span physical obstacles without closing the way underneath such as a body of water, valley, or road, for the purpose of providing passage over the obstacle. A defined span is a must, and not just a plank across a ditch. Neither culverts nor floodgates/sluices are valid places for the attribute.
A castle zone is located at a castle or fort.
A ruin zone is located at hundreds of years old ancient remains of a building or similar object.
A zone can be different colours at different times.
- Neutral - The zone has not yet been taken over this round and thus has no owner. Players receive a neutral bonus by taking over neutral zones.
- Somebody else's - The zone is owned by somebody that is not you. You can take over this zone unless blocked.
- Yours - The zone is yours and generating PPH.
- Selected - The zone is currently selected on the map.
A zone that glows bright green or light red, you or someone else can do a revisit on.
Neutral zones are zones that were never taken during the current round. They are characterized by their yellow color in the game. A turfer that takes a neutral zone gets a neutral bonus of 50 points. If you take 20 neutral zones within 5 hours, you get the medal Neutralizer.
Unique zones are the zones that a player taken at least once. Unique zones are displayed by the button in the menu.
Round unique zone
Round unique zones are zones that a player has taken at least once during a round.
All game zones are placed by zone makers in Turf Crew. However, all players can request new zones through the app, but it is the zone makers who decides where and when zones appear. They look a lot at statistics to see when areas need new zones.
The zones are usually adapted to the surroundings, to fit in better and provide a good GPS signal.
Report issues with zones
If you find that a zone has issues, e.g. that the name is spelled incorrectly or that the zone is placed at a bad location, this may be reported at the issue web.
