Our artificial putting green products are expertly produced right here in the US to simulate the look, feel, and playability of organic grass. Your investment in a backyard putting green will raise your property value while also improving your short game. So, what does a backyard putting green cost? Southwest Greens synthetic putting greens typically cost anywhere from $20 to $35 per square foot, depending on the following features:

Putting Green Size

Although putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you can typically practice your entire short game on a green that is significantly smaller. Here are some general price guidelines:

2,000 square feet and above: $20 to $25 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $30 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $35 per sq. ft.

Type of Green

Southwest Greens designs and installs an assortment of golf greens that use various manufacturing techniques and different varieties of synthetic turf. Your outdoor putting green can be customized to your specifications and speed preferences. Southwest Greens uses premium-grade artificial turf that has the appearance and bite of organic turf.


The cost of a backyard putting green varies depending on how intricate the design of the green is and how much skill is needed to develop it. Our manufacturers and dealers have comprehensive training and knowledge to develop the best design for customers. If you are looking for something even more sophisticated, we’re an official partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our gear and materials will have a significant effect on the time and expenditures involved to install a putting green. Costs can be higher if we are unable to easily access your location with large machinery, since this involves more hands-on labor. The requirement for intensive grading and other landscaping to prepare the site would impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Southwest Greens does not include the cost of site preparation in the square foot pricing of your grass. This is related to the fact that a few locations will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you reside in a region where grass grows, we’ll have to get rid of existing turf or soil. If you live in a desert area, the amount of effort required to prepare the site for installation will be significantly reduced.


Although you may be considering a backyard putting green, after viewing our portfolio, you might desire more. Perhaps you would want to add bunkers, tee boxes, water hazards, or other functionalities. This will affect the project’s cost as a whole should you intend to add additional elements to your turf.


Southwest Greens knows how to bring extremely remarkable concepts to life. Since 1996, we’ve built a reputation for producing top-of-the-line golf turf; attracting the interest of more than two dozen top PGA Tour golfers who have had Southwest Greens grass installed at their properties. At Southwest Greens, we consider ourselves to be the masters of installation technology. The installation cost will differ depending on your area, landscaping necessities, what you’re looking for in a putting green, and additional elements you may want to include.
