Perfect your short game at any given moment with indoor putting greens.
If you are thinking about installing an indoor putting surface in your residence or office, here are answers to some of the most FAQs we receive.
WHY SPEND MONEY ON AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?
Indoor putting greens and practice mats are ideal solutions for any Atlanta golfer trying to keep practicing, rain or shine, day or night. With indoor greens, you can easily spend lots of time refining your putting precision to cut your handicap.
WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?
This is a question we regularly get. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can have it in your residence, office, or basement — the options are plentiful! The initial thing you want to determine is whether this will be a permanently fixed piece or if you desire something you can have on the go.
WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INDOOR GREEN AND A PUTTING KIT?
An indoor putting green is placed immediately over the subbase. The artificial grass is added to the floor to hold up for many years. You can also integrate border grass and chipping areas to create a fabulous indoor golfing experience if room allows.
Meanwhile, a practice mat or putting kit is a fragment of grass that can be rolled up and carried on the go. It can fundamentally be rolled out on any surface everywhere and effortlessly packs up.
WHAT INFLUENCES THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN PRICE?
Haven’t we all seen a price tag that prompts us to ask the question, “why is this so expensive?!” We prefer to stay ahead of that question and be transparent regarding what goes into manufacturing our indoor putting greens. Here’s an analysis for you.
Base Materials & Site Preparation
Although the base materials and site prep will be lowest for an indoor putting green compared to what you need for outdoors, there must be a structurally sound foundation. If the grass will be installed over concrete, the cups might need to be drilled or bored out.
Features, Size, and Design
One of the biggest elements that goes into an indoor putting green price is the size, design, and unique features. Things like customized shapes and multi-cup characteristics will contribute the most crucial contributor in how much your particular turf will cost.
Number of Cuts
The number of cuts your green needs, will be dependent on where you are going to install the grass. If there are obstacles that cannot be moved (for example, support beams or walls), you might need more cuts than a conventional square. Turf can also be cut into curves for a one of a kind appearance.
Artificial golf greens require a higher level of skill for installation and design. Since our start in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has genuinely perfected the art of golf construction. We have great pride in crafting gorgeous turf, no matter the size.
HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?
If you want an artificial green that is a fixed part of your space, the installation will be greater than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation expenses will be a more expensive investment but quite worth it in the long term. Our putting green costs hover from $20 to $25 per ft2, but asking for an estimate is the way to learn just how much your individual project would be.
