Our artificial putting green products are expertly produced here in the United States to replicate the look, feel, and playability of organic turf. An investment in a backyard putting green will boost your property value while also improving your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Our synthetic putting greens are priced from $20 to $35 per square foot, based on the following aspects:

Putting Green Dimensions

While PGA Tour putting greens are approximately 5,000 to 6,000 square feet in size, you could generally hone your entire short game on a green that is significantly smaller. Below are some general pricing guidelines (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and up: $20 to $30 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $35 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $40 per sq. ft.

Type of Turf

Southwest Greens Flagstaff designs and installs an assortment of golf greens that utilize different manufacturing methods and different kinds of synthetic grass. Your outdoor putting green can be customized to your specifications and speed preferences. Southwest Greens Flagstaff employs premium-grade artificial turf that has the look, feel, and bite of traditional grass.


The cost of a backyard putting green can vary depending on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is required to create it. Our manufacturers and dealers have significant training and experience to produce the right design for customers. If you are seeking something far more sophisticated, we are an official partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our gear and tools will have a significant impact on the time and expenditures involved to install a putting green. Fees can be higher if we are unable to access your location easily with larger machines, because this means more physical labor. The necessity for intensive grading and other maintenance to prepare the property will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

We do not include site preparation prices into the square foot pricing of your grass. This is due to the fact that certain regions will require the removal of existing grass, while others will not. If you live in a location where you have grass growing, we will have to remove existing turf or soil. If you live in a desert area, the effort required to prep the area for installation will be reduced dramatically.


Though you might be thinking about a backyard putting green, after looking over our portfolio, you may want something more. Perhaps you want to add water hazards, bunkers, tee boxes, or other functionalities. This will have an impact on the project’s cost as a whole if you wish to add interesting elements to your grass.


Southwest Greens Flagstaff understands how to bring extremely spectacular designs to reality. Since 1996, we have built a reputation for producing superb golf turf; attracting the attention of over twenty prominent PGA Tour golfers who have had Southwest Greens grass installed at their houses. We consider ourselves to be the masters of installation technology. The cost of installation will depend on your area, landscaping needs, what you want in a putting green, and any additional elements you want.
