Our synthetic putting green products are professionally crafted here in the USA to mimic the look, feel, and playability of natural grass. Your investment in a backyard putting green will increase the value of your property while also improving your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Southwest Greens artificial putting greens are priced from $20 to $35 per square foot, based on these aspects:

Putting Green Measurements

While PGA Tour putting greens measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you could usually hone your entire short game on a much smaller green. The following are some general pricing criteria:

2,000 square feet and up: $20 to $25 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $30 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $35 per sq. ft.

Style of Green

We design and install a wide range of golf greens that use diverse manufacturing processes and different kinds of synthetic grass. Your backyard putting green can be customized to fit your needs, including the speed you desire. We utilize premium-grade artificial turf that has the look, feel, and bite of traditional turf.


The cost of a backyard putting green changes depending on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is required to create it. Our designers and dealers have comprehensive training and knowledge to produce the best configuration for clients. If you are seeking something far more elegant, we’re an exclusive partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our equipment and tools will have a substantial impact on the time and expenses involved in installing a putting green. Prices could be higher if we are unable to easily access your location with larger equipment, because this requires more manual labor. The need for extensive grading as well as other landscaping to prepare the property would also have an influence on the price.

Site Preparation

We do not include site preparation prices into the square foot pricing of your grass. This is due to the fact that some locations will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you reside in a location where there is grass growing, we will have to remove existing soil or turf. If you live in a desert region, the amount of effort required to prepare the site for installation will be significantly reduced.


While you might be contemplating a backyard putting green, after viewing our portfolio, you might desire more. Maybe you would want to include tee boxes, water hazards, bunkers, or other functionalities. This will affect the overall cost of the project should you want to add interesting aspects to your grass.
