WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most important parts of your golf game is putting. For many non-professional golfers, it can account for up to fifty percent of shots. So this is the part of their game that most golfers opt to practice often, right?
Many players will choose to practice driving ranges and avoid putting completely. Are you guilty of this, too?
We know driving ranges are a good time, and hitting those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts short of that finishing element they need?
A top-quality putting green turf is manufactured with low pile artificial grass allowing golf balls to roll true. It is a bit different from standard turf because it is not as thick as the artificial grass you might see on lawns, therefore, it will help you improve your short game.
ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers that can be used in place of natural grass since it’s durable. Trying to maintain a natural grass putting green indoors would be a disaster, so artificial turf is king for indoor.
An indoor putting green will both improve the look of your home and will, more importantly, allow you to practice your golf game in any type of weather or season, and the benefits of installing an indoor putting green surpass the investment significantly.
Personalize your green based on your preferences — choose the style, contour, hole layouts, features, and color that appeal to you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
No amount of weather will prevent you from indoor putting practice.
The money you would save by owning an indoor putting green is one of the biggest perks — you will save on time and money spent traveling, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf requires almost no maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping an indoor putting green in top shape requires less work than trying to maintain other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
Regardless if you’re a novice or can’t go a week without some version of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the tools to improve your short game immensely.
