How Much Does It Cost to Install Putting Greens?

The exact price will depend on a list of factors including access, parking, sq.ft., the complexity of elements, condition of the soil, materials, number of cups and flags, and many other factors. You can get a pretty good estimate in just 30 seconds by answering a few questions here.

Why Are Artificial Putting Greens Becoming So Popular?

Before artificial turf, maintaining a putting green surface would be like creating a masterpiece. The amount of time and equipment required for a good putt was not a financially viable option for most homeowners. Golf courses and luxury residences were the only places that could afford the upkeep of putting greens. Today, with almost zero services, putting greens flourish in neighborhood backyards.

Are Putting Greens Customizable?

Every single putting green we install is different. We work with you to install the putting green of your dreams that you’ll be excited to play on for years to come. You can customize the material, shape, and fill of the field. We can even add undulations, beautiful ponds, and bunkers. Just imagine it and show us the direction. We will put all options in front of you to meet your desires and budget.

What Type of Turf is Best For Putting Greens?

Most golfers prefer a slit-film style. This has shorter trimmed blades that give the effect of a freshly mowed lawn.

There is no straight answer for this one. For putting greens we offer a variety of different kinds of grass. For simplicity, we stick to Pure Putt for the most natural-looking putting green, Tour Putt for the best customization, and Eagle Putt for multi-purpose use. We are constantly learning about new materials and technologies to offer you the most advanced products.

Do Artificial Putting Greens Offer the Same Play Experience As Natural Putting Greens?

In short, yes. Synthetic golf greens simulate the look, feel, and performance of natural green. Practicing on synthetic turf offers a fun and easy way to improve your game. You can customize your putting green by selecting materials, pads, and infills to build your perfect space.

Is My Yard Big Enough For A Putting Green?

Absolutely! Because they are so customizable, we can make an entertaining area with just one or 2 holes. In fact, the average putting green surface is only about 300 sq. ft. Those who desire a more challenging game can purchase sets of obstacles on Amazon. We can also adjust the level of difficulty with undulations and hardscape. Or, you can even play golf-like bowling by scoring targets from a single spot. Imagination has no limit!

What Kind of Maintenance Do Putting Greens Require?

Artificial putting green material makes it so much easier to keep your area clean. Your surface will still need a little bit of maintenance, but you'll be able to blow the leaves away and brush off any dirt with ease. Depending on how often you use this space for recreation purposes, our specialists can arrange a brushing service in order to make sure all edges are upright and looking their best! 

When you are concerned about maintenance, we highly recommend choosing more durable commercial-grade materials. Most commercial-grade materials feel a bit harder, but they are easier to maintain. This is ideal in areas with heavier traffic.

How Do You Speed Up an Artificial Putting Green?

There are a few ways to improve the speed of the ball on your putting green:

  •  We make sure the infill is evenly spread out using enough to keep it standing on its own, but not too much that will cause excess wear or impact absorption. 
  • Brush off dirt regularly with a soft brush so there isn't a distinctive grain pattern from lack of brushing and make sure the fibers stand upright without being weighted down by excessive amounts of infill material
