WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most critical parts of your game as a golfer is putting. For most non-professional golfers, putting can represent up to fifty percent of shots. So putting is something most golfers choose to work on often, right?
Not so fast.
The majority of golfers will prefer to practice driving ranges and bypass putting entirely. Does this sound like you too?
Of course driving ranges are a good time, and watching those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts lacking that final element they need?
A top-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 that is used on lawns, therefore, it’ll help you better your short game.
ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers and can replace naturally growing grass since it is durable. Trying to maintain an organic grass putting green inside would be a nightmare, so artificial turf is what you need indoors.
An indoor putting green will not only update the look and feel of your home but will, more importantly, let you practice your golf game in any kind of season or weather, and the benefits of installing an indoor putting green exceed the expense by a considerable amount.
Personalize your green based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole layouts, features, and color that appeal to you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
No amount of weather will stop you from practicing your short game indoors.
The money saved by getting an indoor putting green is one of the biggest perks — you’ll save on time and money spent traveling, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf has almost no maintenance, even less indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green in top shape is easier than maintaining other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
If you are a novice or can’t stand being without some form of golf, an indoor putting green will help to improve your short game more than anything else.
Improve the Value of Your Home
Indoor putting greens are a fantastic addition to your home that will help to transform the look and feel — show everyone your love of the game.
