WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green won’t just transform the aesthetic of your room, but will also enable you to work on your golf game in any climate. Synthetic turf is a great solution for golf simulators, short game putting spaces, and a lot more. Artificial grass for indoor golf is:
- Effortless to maintain
- Extremely customizable
- Increases property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will largely depend on the quality of the turf chosen for your indoor putting area. Lower quality materials will cause the ball to roll strangely, and unlevel surfaces will make putting difficult. Bunker areas need to to be designed with careful thought for indoor installations. You can know more information regarding our indoor putting greens here.
On the flip side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be quite accurate. The majority feature a distance accuracy of nearly 95% or more. Some golf simulators will enable you to play with an actual ball, while cheaper simulators will have a specific practice ball. This practice ball will not have similar outcomes as a real ball and golf hitting mat outdoors, so remember that.
IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS PRICEY TO INSTALL?
It’s difficult to quote just how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can generally anticipate spending around $15 and $30+ per ft2 of grass installed. Some aspects which influence the price are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Yes! The biggest restriction are the dimensions of the space you want to install your short game or putting course indoors. With these, you don’t have to be concerned with balls getting hit into the ceiling since there will just be soft strokes on the ball for short game improvement. Golf entertainment is becoming a big market, so if you have the indoor area to install putting courses, it can be highly helpful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial turf installation can be pretty easy due to the fact that there’s no reason for digging or leveling the ground first. A typical indoor golf grass 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 uneven surfaces like bunkers
- Lay and secure a shock pad to make a soft and safe surface
- Install artificial grass and secure edges
