Perfect your short game any time through indoor putting greens.

In case you are considering installing an indoor putting surface to your home or workplace, here are answers to few of the most FAQs we receive.

 

WHY INSTALL AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?

Indoor putting greens and practice mats are great solutions for Flagstaff golfers looking to practice, whatever the weather, day or night. Through indoor greens, you can easily spend lots of time refining your putting accuracy to trim your handicap.

 

WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?

This is a question we often get. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can have it in your residence, workplace, or basement — the choices are ample! The initial thing you should figure out is whether this will be a forever fixed piece or if you want something you can take on the go.

 

WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INDOOR GREEN AND A PUTTING KIT?

An indoor putting green is afixed directly over the subbase. The artificial turf is added to the floor to endure for years to come. You can also integrate fringe grass and chipping surfaces to have a fantastic indoor golfing experience if space allows.

Meanwhile, a practice mat or putting kit is a portion of green that can be packed away and taken on the go. It can fundamentally be rolled out on any floor wherever you want and easily packs up.

 

WHAT AFFECTS THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN PRICE?

Haven’t we all seen a price tag that makes us ask the question, “why is this so expensive?!” We like to stay ahead of that question and be transparent about what goes into producing our indoor putting greens. Here is a cost overview for you.

Base Materials & Site Preparation

While the base materials and site preparation will be minimal for an indoor putting green in comparison with what you need for outdoors, there needs to be a structurally sound foundation. If the grass will lay over concrete, the cups might need to be drilled or bored out.

Design, Features, and Size

One of the greatest components influencing an indoor putting green cost is the size, design, and special features. Features like tailored shapes and multi-cup features will be the most significant role in how much your particular green will cost.

Number of Cuts

The number of cuts your grass will require, will depend on where you are going to install the turf. If there are barriers that cannot be moved (like support beams or walls), you might have to have more cuts than a conventional square. Turf can also be cut into shapes for a extraordinary appearance.

Installation Costs

Artificial golf greens call for an expert level of skill for installation and design. Since our start in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has truly perfected the art of golf construction. It brings us great pride in building attractive grass, whatever the size.

 

HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

If you want an synthetic green that’s a fixed part of your house, the installation will be more intensive than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation expenses will be a bigger investment but definitely worth it in the long term. Our putting green prices average from $20 to $25 per ft2, but getting a quote is the easiest way to discover just how much your specific project would be.
