1. WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most critical aspects of your golf game is putting. For most non-professional golfers, putting can account for nearly fifty percent of shots. So this is the part of their game that most golfers decide to practice frequently, right?
Not so fast.
Many golfers will prefer to work on driving ranges and avoid putting entirely. Does this sound like you too?
Sure, driving ranges are a lot of fun, and watching those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts short of that important element they need?
An industry-leading putting green turf is comprised of low pile artificial grass which allows golf balls to roll true. It’s a little different from traditional turf because it’s not as dense as the artificial grass used for lawns, therefore it’ll help you better your short game.
2. ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens use synthetic fibers that can replace natural grass since it’s durable. Attempting to maintain an organic grass putting green in a home would be terrible, so artificial turf is the indoor king.
An indoor putting green will not only update the look and feel of your home but will, more importantly, give you the chance to practice your golf game in all seasons and weather, and the upside of having an indoor putting green outweigh the expense substantially.
Personalize your green based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole designs, features, and color that you like the most.
Not Affected by Weather
No amount of weather will prevent you from practicing your putting indoors.
The money saved by owning an indoor putting green is one of the biggest benefits — you will save on both time and money used for travel, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf needs essentially no maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping an indoor putting green nice and clean is less difficult than maintaining other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
If you are new to putting or you can’t be without some kind of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the tools to improve your short game immensely.
