Find Out why indoor putting greens are rising in popularity.
1. WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
Putting is one of the most critical parts of your game as a golfer. For many novice golfers, it can represent up to fifty percent of shots. So this is the part of their game that most golfers choose to practice all the time, right?
Not so fast.
Most golfers will prefer to work on driving ranges and avoid putting altogether. Are you guilty of this, too?
We know driving ranges are a lot of fun, and seeing those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts lacking that important element they need?
A top-quality putting green turf is comprised of low pile artificial grass allowing golf balls to roll true. It’s a little different from traditional turf because it’s not as thick as the artificial grass used for lawns, and it will help you better your short game.
2. ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers that can be used instead of naturally growing grass because it is durable. Trying to maintain an organic grass putting green indoors would be a disaster, so artificial turf is the indoor king.
An indoor putting green will both improve the look of your home and will, more importantly, give you the chance to practice your golf game in all seasons and weather, and the benefits of owning an indoor putting green exceed the expense substantially.
Your green can be customized based on your preferences — choose the style, contour, hole designs, features, and color that appeal to you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
No weather will prevent you from practicing your short game indoors.
The money saved by installing an indoor putting green is one of the biggest advantages — you will save on the time and money wasted on traveling, memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf has virtually zero maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green nice and clean is less work than keeping up other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
Regardless if you are new to putting or you can’t stand being without some version of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the means to improve your short game a bunch.
Improve the Value of Your Home
Indoor greens are a fantastic feature of your home that’ll help you transform the look and feel — show everyone your love of the game.
