WHY SYNTHETIC TURF FOR INDOORS?

- Effortless to maintain
- Extremely customizable
- Increases property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will greatly depend on the quality of the grass used for your indoor golf area. Inexpensive products will cause the ball to roll weirdly, and unlevel surfaces will make putting difficult. Bunker zones must to be designed with careful consideration for indoor uses. You can learn more details about our indoor putting greens here.
On the other side of indoor golf (simulators), you can count on golf simulators to be quite precise. Many have a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or better. A few golf simulators will allow you to use a real ball, on the other hand, lower-cost simulators will require a specific practice ball. This practice ball does not have similar outcomes as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outdoors, so remember that.
IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is tough to determine just how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can usually plan to spend in the neighborhood of $15 and $30+ per sq ft of turf installed. A few elements which affect the price are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Definitely! The biggest constraint is the size of the space you want to install a short game or putting course indoors. With these, you don’t have to be concerned with balls shooting into the ceiling due to the fact that there will only be small strokes on the ball for short game development. Golf entertainment is becoming a huge market, so if you own the indoor area to provide putting courses, it can be highly helpful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR GRASS INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial grass installation can be quite easy because there’s no reason for excavating or leveling the earth first. A typical indoor golf green installation will need the following steps:
- The floor cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials used to create uneven surfaces such as sand traps
- Install and secure a shock pad to get a soft and safe surface
- Place synthetic turf and fasten edges
