Whether you are looking to build an entire indoor golf facility in Houston or you are only trying to add a personal putting area in your home’s basement so you can practice, artificial grass is the answer you need. Read more to know more regarding synthetic turf for indoor golf.
WHY SYNTHETIC TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green will not simply beautify the appearance of your space, it will also enable you to work on your golf game in any season or weather. Synthetic grass is an ideal answer for golf simulators, short game putting areas, and so much more. Synthetic grass for indoor golf is:
- Simple to maintain
- Extremely customizable
- Increases property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will largely vary based on the quality of the turf employed for your indoor golf area. Cheaper products will cause the ball to roll oddly, and uneven surfaces will make putting challenging. Bunker sections need to to be built with careful thought for indoor applications. You can know more details about our indoor putting greens here.
On the opposite side of indoor golf (simulators), you can trust golf simulators to be quite accurate. The majority include a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or better. A handful of golf simulators will enable you to hit a real ball, whereas inexpensive simulators will require a specific practice ball. This practice ball does not have similar results as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outside, so bear that in mind.
IS SYNTHETIC TURF EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is difficult to estimate just how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can usually expect to spend around $15 and $30+ per square foot of grass installed. The components that affect the price are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Absolutely! The primary limitation is the size of the area you wish to install a short game or putting course indoors. With these, you will not have to be troubled by balls getting hit into the ceiling because there will only be soft touches on the ball for short game practice. Golf entertainment is becoming a huge market, so if you own the indoor area to offer putting courses, it can be extremely helpful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial grass installation can be fairly simple due to the fact that there is no reason for excavating or leveling the earth first. A regular indoor golf green installation will require the following steps:
- The floor cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials used to make varied surfaces such as bunkers
- Lay and fasten a shock pad to get a soft and safe surface
- Lay the artificial grass and fasten edges
