Southwest Greens’ artificial putting green products are professionally manufactured here in the USA to replicate the look, feel, and performance of natural grass. Investing in a backyard putting green will raise the value of your property while also improving your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Southwest Greens artificial putting greens range in price from $20 to $35 per sq. ft., depending on these aspects:

Putting Green Size

Though PGA Tour putting greens are approximately 5,000 to 6,000 square feet in size, you could typically hone your complete short game on a green that is significantly smaller. Here are some general pricing rules of thumb (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and up: $20 to $30 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $35 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $40 per sq. ft.

Type of Turf

We design and install a variety of golf greens that use different manufacturing techniques and different kinds of synthetic turf. Your backyard putting green can be customized to fit your needs, including the speed you desire. We utilize premium-grade artificial turf that has the look, feel, and bite of natural grass.


The cost of a backyard putting green can vary depending on the complexity of the design and the skill level necessary to build it. Our developers and dealers have comprehensive training and experience to develop the right configuration for customers. If you are looking for something even more fashionable, we’re an official partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The ease of access to our gear and materials will have a significant impact on the time and costs involved in installing a putting green. Fees may be higher if we cannot easily access your location with larger equipment, since this means more hands-on labor. The necessity for intensive grading as well as other maintenance to prepare the land would also have an influence on the price.

Site Preparation

Site preparation prices aren’t included in the square foot pricing of your turf. This is related to the fact that some locations will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you reside in a region where there is grass growing, we will need to get rid of existing soil or turf. If you reside in a desert area, the effort required to prep the area for installation will be reduced dramatically.


Although you may be considering a backyard putting green, you might want more after looking through our portfolio. Perhaps you’d like to add bunkers, tee boxes, water hazards, or other features. This will have an impact on the project’s cost as a whole if you wish to add additional aspects to your greens.
