Southwest Greens’ synthetic putting green products are precisely produced right here in the United States to simulate the look, feel, and performance of organic turf. An investment in a backyard putting green will boost your property value while also improving your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Our artificial putting greens range in price from $20 to $35 per sq. foot, depending on these aspects:

Putting Green Measurements

Though putting greens on the PGA Tour about 5,000 to 6,000 sq. ft. in size, you can usually hone your entire short game on a green that is much smaller. The following are some general price criteria (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and above: $20 to $30 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $35 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $40 per sq. ft.

Style of Turf

We design and install an assortment of golf greens that use various manufacturing techniques and different kinds of synthetic turf. Your backyard putting green can be customized to fit your needs, including the speed you desire. We employ premium-grade artificial turf that has the appearance and bite of organic grass.


The cost of a backyard putting green changes depending on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is required to create it. Our designers and dealers have significant training and experience to produce the right configuration for clients. If you are looking for something much more elegant, we’re an authorized partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our gear and materials will have a substantial impact on the time and expenses involved in installing a putting green. Fees could be higher if we can’t access your space easily with large equipment, because this requires more physical labor. The requirement for significant grading and other landscaping to prepare the land would impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Southwest Greens does not include the cost of site preparation in the sq. ft. pricing of your turf. This is due to the fact that a few locations will require the removal of existing grass, while others will not. If you reside in a location where grass grows, we’ll have to remove existing grass or soil. If you reside in a desert location, there will be much less work to prepare the site for the installation.


Although you may be considering a backyard putting green, after viewing our portfolio, you might desire more. Perhaps you want to incorporate water hazards, bunkers, tee boxes, or other features. This will affect the total cost of the project should you wish to add additional aspects to your turf.

Since 1996, we’ve established a reputation for developing first-class golf turf; attracting the interest of more than twenty prominent PGA Tour golfers who have had Southwest Greens grass installed at their houses. We consider ourselves to be the masters of installation technology. The installation cost will depend on your location, landscaping requirements, what you want in a putting green, and any extra functionalities you may want to include.
