Southwest Greens’ artificial putting green products are expertly manufactured in the US to mimic the look, feel, and performance of natural turf. Your investment in a backyard putting green will raise the value of your property while also improving your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Our synthetic putting greens range in price from $20 to $35 per sq. foot, depending on these factors:

Putting Green Measurements

Although PGA Tour putting greens about 5,000 to 6,000 sq. ft. in size, you could typically hone your complete short game on a green that is significantly smaller. Below are some general price criteria (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and more: $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.

Style of Turf

Southwest Greens of Illinois designs and installs a variety of golf greens that use various construction processes and different kinds of artificial grass. Your backyard putting green can be customized to fit your needs, including the speed you desire. Southwest Greens of Illinois employs premium-grade artificial turf that has the appearance and bite of organic grass.


The cost of a backyard putting green can vary based on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is required to create it. Our designers and dealers have significant training and knowledge to develop the best style for customers. If you are looking for something far more sophisticated, we are an exclusive partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The ease of access to our equipment and tools will have a considerable effect on the time and expenses involved to install a putting green. Prices may be higher if we cannot access your space easily with larger machines, because this means more physical labor. The necessity for intensive grading as well as other maintenance to prepare the land will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Site preparation prices aren’t included in the sq. ft. pricing of your turf. This is due to the fact that some regions will require existing turf to be removed, while others will not. If you reside in an area where there is grass growing, we will need to remove existing soil or grass. If you live in a desert region, the amount of effort required to prepare the site for installation will be significantly reduced.


Although you may be contemplating a backyard putting green, after looking over our portfolio, you may want something more. Perhaps you would want to include water hazards, bunkers, tee boxes, or other enhancements. This will influence the project’s cost as a whole if you intend to add other aspects to your grass.


Southwest Greens of Illinois knows how to bring truly great ideas to life. Since 1996, we’ve built a reputation for creating first-class golf grass; drawing the attention of more than 25 prominent PGA Tour golfers who have had Southwest Greens grass installed at their properties. We consider ourselves to be the masters of installation technology. The installation cost will vary depending on your location, landscaping requirements, what you’re looking for in a putting green, and any additional elements you may add.
