WHY ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR INDOORS?

- Effortless to maintain
- Extremely customizable

HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will mainly vary based on the quality of the turf employed for your indoor putting area. Cheaper products will cause the ball to roll strangely, and uneven surfaces will make putting difficult. Bunker zones need to to be built with careful thought for indoor installations. You can read more information about our indoor putting greens here.
On the flip side of indoor golf (simulators), you can trust golf simulators to be very accurate. Many feature a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or higher. Some golf simulators will permit you to hit a real ball, whereas inexpensive simulators will require a proprietary practice ball. This practice ball does not have the same results as a real ball and golf hitting mat outside, so keep that in mind.
IS SYNTHETIC GRASS EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is difficult to quote exactly how much an indoor golf surface will cost to install, but you can generally expect to spend between $15 and $30+ per ft2 of turf installed. A few aspects which influence the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Absolutely! The biggest limitation are the dimensions of the space you wish 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 just be small strokes on the ball for short game development. Golf entertainment is becoming a big market, so if you own the indoor area to install putting courses, it can be highly useful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor synthetic grass installation can be quite straightforward because there is no reason for excavating or leveling the ground first. A typical indoor golf grass installation will need the following steps:
- The surface cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled up and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to produce undulating surfaces such as sand traps
- Install and fasten a shock pad to create a soft and safe surface
- Lay the synthetic turf and fasten edges
