Whether you are going to build a complete indoor golf facility in Flagstaff or you are only going to get a putting area in yourhouse’s cellar for practice, synthetic turf is the solution you are looking for. Read on to find out more regarding synthetic grass for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor putting green won’t just change the appearance of your space, it will also let you work on your golf game in any season or weather. Artificial grass is a perfect solution for golf simulators, short game putting spaces, and a whole lot more. Synthetic grass for indoor golf is:
- Easy to maintain
- Highly customizable
- Good for property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will greatly vary based on the quality of the grass used for your indoor golf area. Lower quality materials will cause the ball to roll weirdly, and unlevel surfaces will make putting difficult. Bunker zones have to be built with careful consideration for indoor uses. You can know more info on our indoor putting greens here.
On the other side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be pretty precise. Most include a distance accuracy of around 95% or more. A handful of golf simulators will allow you to play with a real ball, on the other hand, inexpensive simulators will need a specific practice ball. This practice ball does not have the same outcomes as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outside, so bear that in mind.
IS ARTIFICIAL TURF PRICEY TO INSTALL?
It is tough to estimate exactly how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can typically expect to spend in the neighborhood of $15 and $30+ per ft2 of grass installed. A few aspects which affect the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Yes! The major limitation are the dimensions of the space you wish to install a short game or putting course indoors. With these, you will not have to worry about balls getting hit into the ceiling because there will simply be small strokes on the ball for short game improvement. Golf entertainment is turning into a large market, so if you have the indoor area to provide putting courses, it can be extremely beneficial to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR TURF INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial grass installation can be fairly straightforward due to the fact that there’s no reason for excavating or leveling the earth first. A typical indoor golf turf installation will require the following steps:
- The surface cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to produce varied surfaces like sand traps
- Lay and fasten a shock pad to make a soft and safe surface
- Lay the synthetic grass and fasten edges
