Whether you are going to build an entire indoor golf facility in Atlanta or you’re just looking to get a small putting area in yourhouse’s cellar to practice, artificial grass is what you need. Continue reading to learn more regarding synthetic turf for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green will not simply change the aesthetic of your space, but will also enable you to practice your golf game in any season or weather. Artificial grass is a perfect answer for golf simulators, short game putting spaces, and a whole lot more. Synthetic grass for indoor golf is:
- Effortless to maintain
- Highly customizable
- Good for property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will mainly depend on the quality of the green used for your indoor putting area. Cheaper materials will cause the ball to roll strangely, and unlevel surfaces will make putting tough. Bunker zones have to be planned with careful attention for indoor uses. You can read more info on our indoor putting greens here.
On the opposite side of indoor golf (simulators), you can count on golf simulators to be pretty precise. Many have a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or more. Some golf simulators will permit you to hit a real ball, while cheaper simulators will need a proprietary practice ball. This practice ball will not have the same results as a real ball and golf hitting mat outside, so keep that in mind.
IS ARTIFICIAL TURF PRICEY TO INSTALL?
It is tough to estimate exactly how much an indoor golf surface will cost to install, but you can generally anticipate spending between $15 and $30+ per ft2 of grass installed. Some components which influence the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Definitely! The primary limitation are the dimensions of the area you want to install a short game or putting course indoors. With these, you will not have to worry about balls getting hit into the ceiling since there will just be small strokes on the ball for short game development. Golf entertainment is growing into a huge market, so if you own the indoor space to install putting courses, it can be highly useful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR TURF INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial grass installation can be quite straightforward due to the fact that there is no reason for excavating or leveling the ground first. A regular indoor golf turf installation will require the following steps:
- The floor cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled up and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to produce undulating surfaces such as bunkers
- Install and fasten a shock pad to make a soft and safe surface
- Install artificial turf and secure edges
