Perfect your short game at any given moment with indoor putting greens.

In case you're considering installing an indoor putting surface in your home or workplace, here are answers to several most frequent questions we get.

 

WHY INSTALL AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?

Indoor putting greens and training mats are the perfect ways for any Kennewick golfer looking to practice, anytime. Using indoor greens, you can easily spend plenty of time fine-tuning your putting precision to trim your handicap.

 

WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?

This is a question we regularly receive. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can have it in your home, workplace, or basement — the choices are abundant! The first thing you should figure out is whether this will be a forever fixed 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 directly over the subbase. The artificial turf is fixed to the floor to last for years. You can also integrate border grass and chipping areas to make a fabulous indoor golfing experience if space allows.

On the other hand, a practice mat or putting kit is a fragment of grass that can be wrapped up and taken on the go. It can essentially be rolled out on any floor everywhere and simply packs up.

 

WHAT IMPACTS THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN PRICE?

Haven’t we all been surprised by a price that prompts us to ask the question, “why is this so expensive?!” We choose to stay forward of that question and be clear about what is put into producing our indoor putting greens. Here’s a cost overview for you.

Base Materials & Site Prep

Even though the base materials and site prep will be negligible for an indoor putting green in comparison with what you need for outdoors, there still must be a structurally sound foundation. If the turf will lay over concrete, the cups might need to be bored or drilled out.

Size, Design, & Features

One of the major elements that goes into an indoor putting green cost is the size, design, and special features. Things like custom shapes and multi-cup features will play the most important factor in how much your specific turf will cost.

Number of Cuts

The number of cuts your grass has to have, will be dependent on where you are planning to put the grass. If there are in the way that cannot be moved (for example, support beams or walls), you might need more cuts than a regular square. Grass could also be cut into curves for a one of a kind appearance.

Installation Costs

Artificial golf greens require an expert level of skill for design and installation. Considering our introduction in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has genuinely perfected the art of golf construction. We have a lot of pride in creating beautiful turf, regardless of the size.

 

HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

If you need an artificial green that’s a permanent part of your home, the installation will be more involved than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation costs will be a bigger investment but quite worth it in the long haul. Our putting green prices hover from $20 to $25 per ft2, but getting an estimate is the way to learn just how much your individual project would cost.
