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

If you are considering installing an indoor putting surface in your house or office, here are answers to several most frequent questions we receive.

 

WHY INSTALL AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?

Indoor putting greens and training mats are ideal solutions for Houston golfers wanting to keep practicing, whatever the weather, day or night. Using indoor greens, you can easily spend plenty of time perfecting your putting precision to trim your handicap.

 

WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?

We often get asked this question. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can put it in your house, office, or basement — the choices are abundant! The initial thing you need 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 grass is fixed to the floor to hold up for years to come. You can also integrate fringe grass and chipping surfaces to make a wonderful indoor golfing experience if space allows.

On the other hand, a practice mat or putting kit is a fragment of turf that can be wrapped up and carried on the go. It can essentially be rolled out on any floor wherever you want and simply packs up.

 

WHAT AFFECTS THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

Haven’t we all had sticker shock that prompts us to ask the question, “why does it cost so much?!” We like to stay forward of that question and be open about what it takes when making our indoor putting greens. Here is a breakdown for you.

Base Materials & Site Preparation

Even though the base materials and site preparation will be lowest for an indoor putting green compared to what is required for outdoors, nevertheless there has to be a structurally sound base. If the grass will lay over concrete, the cups might need to be bored or drilled out.

Size, Design, & Features

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

Number of Cuts

The number of cuts your grass requires, will vary based on where you are planning to put the grass. If there are obstacles that can’t be moved (such as support beams or walls), you might require more cuts than a standard square. Turf can also be cut into curves for a out of the ordinary appearance.

Installation Costs

Artificial golf greens require a high level of mastery for installation and design. Given our start in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has truly perfected the art of golf construction. We take great pride in building attractive turf, regardless of the size.

 

HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?

If you desire an synthetic green that’s a permanent part of your space, the installation will be more involved than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation costs will be a larger investment but quite worth it in the long run. Our golf green prices range from $20 to $25 per square foot, but getting an estimate is the way to discover just how much your specific project will be.
