Perfect your short game any day now through indoor putting greens.
In case you're pondering adding an indoor putting surface in your home or workplace, here are answers to several most frequently asked questions we receive.
WHY SPEND MONEY ON AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN?
Indoor putting greens and training mats are ideal tools for any Tucson golfer looking to practice anytime, anytime. Using indoor greens, you can easily spend lots of time perfecting your putting precision to trim your handicap.
WHERE CAN I INSTALL AN INDOOR GREEN?
We often are asked this question. With a practice mat or indoor putting green, you can install it in your house, office, or cellar — the choices are ample! The first thing you should figure out is whether this will be a permanently installed piece or if you want something you can have on the go.
WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN AN INDOOR GREEN AND A PUTTING KIT?
An indoor putting green is placed straight over the subbase. The artificial turf is added to the floor to last for years to come. You can also integrate border grass and chipping areas to make a wonderful indoor golfing experience if room permits.
On the other hand, a practice mat or putting kit is a portion of grass that can be rolled up and taken on the go. It can fundamentally be rolled out on any surface everywhere and simply packs up.
WHAT IMPACTS THE INDOOR PUTTING GREEN PRICE?
Haven’t we all been surprised by a price that prompts us to ask the question, “why is this so expensive?!” We like to stay forward of that question and be clear regarding what it takes when manufacturing our indoor putting greens. Here is an analysis for you.
Base Materials & Site Prep
Although the base materials and site prep will be negligible for an indoor putting green compared to what is needed for outdoors, there has to be a structurally sound base. If the turf will lay over concrete, the cups might be required to be bored or drilled out.
Size, Design, & Features
One of the major components influencing an indoor putting green price is the size, design, and unique features. Features like tailored shapes and multi-cup features will play the most significant role in how much your own turf will cost.
Number of Cuts
The number of cuts your turf will need, will vary based on where you are planning to install the grass. If there are obstacles that cannot be moved (like support beams or walls), you might have to have more cuts than a conventional square. Turf could also be cut into shapes for a unique appearance.
Artificial golf greens call for an expert level of skill for design and installation. Given our introduction in the golf industry in 1996, Southwest Greens has truly perfected the art of golf construction. We have a lot of pride in designing beautiful grass, whatever the size.
HOW MUCH DOES AN INDOOR PUTTING GREEN COST?
If you desire an synthetic green that is a permanent part of your home, the installation will be more intensive than a practice mat or putting kit. Indoor putting green installation costs will be a larger investment but definitely worth it in the long haul. Our golf green costs hover from $20 to $25 per square foot, but asking for an estimate is the way to learn just how much your specific project would be.
