Discover what impacts the price and why in this post.

In the market for a backyard putting green?

Wondering how much of an investment you will need to prepare for?

Here are a few of the elements that influence the pricing of artificial turf.

Putting Green Size

Though putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you may typically practice your whole short game on a green that is much smaller. Listed below are a few general price guidelines:

Synthetic Putting Green Pricing Guidelines: Prices range from $20 to $35 per square foot

* Factors like size of project, design, project access, and location cause price fluctuation and could cause the price to deviate from guidelines*

Type of Green

Southwest Greens designs and installs a broad array of golf turf that use various construction techniques and varied types of synthetic grass. Customized to your requirements, your backyard putting green could be adjusted to meet your desired objectives.


The price of a backyard putting green varies based on the complexity of the design and what skill level is required to build it. Our designers and distributors have extensive training and experience to develop the finest design for you.

Site Accessibility

The site’s accessibility to our equipment and materials will have a significant effect on the duration and costs of installing a putting green. Prices could increase if we are unable to reach your area conveniently with bigger machinery, as this involves more hands-on labor. It will also affect the price if a large amount of grading and landscaping is required to prepare the property.

Site Preparation

Install rates vary due to site preparation. This is due to the fact that some regions will require the removal of existing grass, while others will not. If you live in a location where grass is growing, we will have to remove existing grass or soil. If you live in a desert area, prepping the location for installation will be significantly easier.


While you may be considering a backyard putting green, our portfolio may leave you wanting more. Maybe you would like to include tee boxes, water hazards, bunkers, or other functionalities. Adding innovative elements to your greens will have an impact on the overall project cost.
