If you are trying to create an entire indoor golf facility in Kennewick or you are only wanting to get a personal putting area in yourhouse’s cellar to practice, artificial grass is the solution you are looking for. Read on to know more regarding artificial turf for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green won’t just beautify the look and feel of your room, but will also enable you to work on your golf game in any season or weather. Synthetic grass is a perfect answer for golf simulator areas, short game putting areas, and so much more. Artificial grass for indoor golf is:
- Easy to maintain
- Very 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 putting area. Lower quality materials will cause the ball to roll oddly, and uneven surfaces will make putting challenging. Bunker zones have to be built with careful attention for indoor applications. You can read more details on our indoor putting greens here.
On the flip side of indoor golf (simulators), you can count on golf simulators to be quite precise. Many include a distance accuracy of nearly 95% or better. A handful of golf simulators will permit you to hit an actual ball, whereas inexpensive simulators will require a special practice ball. This practice ball will not have the same outcomes as a real ball and golf hitting mat outside, so bear that in mind.
IS SYNTHETIC TURF PRICEY TO INSTALL?
It is difficult to quote precisely how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can usually anticipate spending around $15 and $30+ per sq ft of turf installed. The aspects which affect the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Yes! The primary limitation are the dimensions of the area you wish to install your short game or putting course indoors. With these, you do not have to be troubled by balls sailing into the ceiling because there will simply be small strokes on the ball for short game practice. Golf entertainment is becoming a big market, so if you own the indoor area to install putting courses, it can be highly useful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor synthetic turf installation can be pretty simple due to the fact that there’s no requirement for excavating or leveling the earth first. A normal indoor golf turf installation will need the following steps:
- The surface cleaned, and clear of debris, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to create undulating surfaces like sand traps
- Install and fasten a shock pad to get a soft and safe surface
- Place artificial turf and secure edges
