WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
Putting is one of the most critical elements of your game as a golfer. For most non-professional golfers, it can account for almost 50% of shots. So this is something most golfers opt to practice often, right?
The majority of players will opt to practice driving ranges and skip putting completely. Are you guilty of this, too?
Yes, driving ranges are a great time, and hitting those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts short of that important element they need?
A high-quality putting green turf is made from low pile artificial grass that allows golf balls to roll true. It is slightly different from regular turf because it isn’t as thick as the artificial grass you might see on lawns, as such, it will help you better your short game.
ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens use synthetic fibers that can be used in place of naturally growing grass because it is durable. Trying to maintain a natural grass putting green in a home would be terrible, so artificial turf is what you need indoors.
An indoor putting green will not only transform the look and feel of your home but will, more importantly, allow you to practice your golf game in any kind of season or weather, and the benefits of having an indoor putting green exceed the investment substantially.
Your green is customizable based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole layouts, features, and color that appeal to you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
Neither rain, snow, or scorching temperatures can prevent you from indoor putting practice.
The money saved by getting an indoor putting green is one of the biggest perks — you will save on the time and money wasted on traveling, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf needs essentially no maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green in top shape is less work than maintaining other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
If you’re a novice or can’t be without some version of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the tools to improve your short game more than anything else.
Improve the Value of Your Home
Indoor greens are a welcomed add-on to your home to help you transform the ambiance — show everyone your personality and sense of style.
