Whether you are wanting to create a complete indoor golf facility in or you’re only wanting to install a small putting area in your home’s basement to practice, artificial grass is what you want. Read on to know more about artificial turf for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor putting green will not simply transform the aesthetic of your room, but will also let you practice your golf game in any season or weather. Artificial turf is a perfect solution for golf simulators, short game putting spaces, and a lot more. Artificial grass for indoor golf is:
- Effortless to maintain
- Very customizable
- Increases property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will mainly depend on the quality of the turf chosen for your indoor golf area. Lower quality materials will cause the ball to roll oddly, and unlevel surfaces will make putting challenging. Bunker zones need to to be designed with careful thought for indoor uses. You can know more information on our indoor putting greens here.
On the other side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be pretty accurate. Most include a distance accuracy of nearly 95% or higher. A few golf simulators will permit you to use an actual ball, on the other hand, cheaper simulators will need a proprietary practice ball. This practice ball won’t have the same outcomes as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outside, so remember that.
IS SYNTHETIC TURF EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is hard to determine precisely how much an indoor golf surface will cost to install, but you can typically expect to spend around $15 and $30+ per sq ft of turf installed. The components which affect the price are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Absolutely! The major limitation are the dimensions of the area you want to install a short game or putting course indoors. With these, you won’t have to be concerned with balls sailing into the ceiling since there will simply be soft strokes on the ball for short game development. Golf entertainment is growing into a huge market, so if you have the indoor space to offer putting courses, it can be highly useful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial turf installation can be fairly straightforward because there is no need for digging or leveling the surface first. A normal indoor golf turf installation will need the following steps:
- The surface cleaned, and free of debris, and any cracks filled and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to produce undulating surfaces such as bunkers
- Install and secure a shock pad to get a soft and safe surface
- Place artificial turf and secure edges
