Perfect your short game any time using indoor putting greens.

If you are considering adding an indoor putting surface in your residence or business, here are answers to some of the most FAQs we get.

 

WHY INVEST IN AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?

Indoor putting greens and training mats are ideal ways for Naperville golfers looking to practice anytime, any weather, anytime. With indoor greens, you can effortlessly spend lots of time refining your putting precision to reduce your handicap.

 

WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?

We frequently are asked this question. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can have it in your house, workplace, or cellar — the options are plentiful! The initial thing you want to figure out is whether this will be a permanently installed piece or if you need something you can carry on the go.

 

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

An indoor putting green is afixed immediately over the subbase. The artificial turf is installed to the floor to endure for many years. You can also incorporate fringe grass and chipping areas to create a fabulous indoor golfing experience if space allows.

Meanwhile, a practice mat or putting kit is a portion of green that can be packed away and carried on the go. It can essentially be rolled out on any surface everywhere and effortlessly packs up.

 

WHAT INFLUENCES THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

Haven’t we all had sticker shock that makes us ask the question, “why is the price so high?!” We choose to stay forward of that question and be open about what goes into producing our indoor putting greens. Here is a breakdown for you.

Base Materials & Site Prep

While the base materials and site preparation will be lowest for an indoor putting green versus what you need for outdoors, there still must be a structurally sound base. If the grass will lay over concrete, the cups may be required to be bored or drilled out.

Size, Design, & Features

One of the biggest elements that goes into an indoor putting green cost is the size, design, and special features. Elements like customized shapes and multi-cup characteristics will play the most important contributor in how much your own turf will cost.

Number of Cuts

The number of cuts your grass will require, will vary based on where you are going to put the grass. If there are barriers that cannot be moved (such as support beams or walls), you might need more cuts than a standard square. Turf could also be cut into shapes for a out of the ordinary view.

Installation Costs

Artificial golf greens require a higher level of skill for installation and design. Considering our start in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has sincerely perfected the art of golf construction. We take pride in designing attractive turf, regardless of the size.

 

HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

If you want an synthetic green that is a fixed part of your home, the installation will be greater than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation expenses will be a larger investment but definitely worth it in the long term. Our golf green costs range from $20 to $25 per ft2, but asking for an estimate is the way to learn just how much your particular project will cost.
