Whether you’re going to make a complete indoor golf facility in Austin or you are just trying to install a small putting area in your cellar to practice, synthetic grass is the solution you need. Continue reading to find out more regarding artificial turf for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green will not simply beautify the appearance of your space, it will also enable you to work on your golf game in any season or weather. Artificial turf is a great solution for golf simulator areas, short game putting areas, and a whole lot more. Artificial turf for indoor golf is:
- Simple to maintain
- Extremely customizable
- Good for property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will mainly depend on the quality of the turf chosen for your indoor putting area. Inexpensive materials will cause the ball to roll strangely, and unlevel surfaces will make putting tough. Bunker areas need to to be designed with careful attention for indoor applications. You can know more information about our indoor putting greens here.
On the other side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be quite accurate. Most feature a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or higher. A handful of golf simulators will enable you to play with a real ball, whereas lower-cost simulators will require a special practice ball. This practice ball will not have similar results as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outside, so keep that in mind.
IS ARTIFICIAL GRASS COSTLY TO INSTALL?
It is tough to estimate precisely how much an indoor golf surface will cost to install, but you can generally plan on spending in the neighborhood of $15 and $30+ per ft2 of turf installed. A few components which affect the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Absolutely! The major restriction is the size of the area you want to install your short game or putting course indoors. With these, you do not have to be concerned with balls shooting into the ceiling due to the fact that there will just be small strokes on the ball for short game practice. Golf entertainment is growing into a large market, so if you have the indoor area to offer putting courses, it can be very beneficial to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR TURF INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor synthetic turf installation can be pretty easy due to the fact that there is no reason for excavating or leveling the ground first. A normal indoor golf turf 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 like sand traps
- Lay and fasten a shock pad to make a soft and safe surface
- Place artificial turf and secure edges
