Southwest Greens’ synthetic putting green products are expertly manufactured in the USA to mimic the look, feel, and playability of traditional grass. An investment in a backyard putting green will boost the value of your property and improve your short game. So, what does a backyard putting green cost? Southwest Greens synthetic putting greens typically cost anywhere from $20 to $35 per sq. ft., based on the following factors:

Putting Green Dimensions

Although putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you can usually perfect your entire short game on a green that is much smaller. Below are some general pricing rules of thumb:

2,000 square feet and larger: $20 to $25 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $30 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $35 per sq. ft.

Type of Green

Southwest Greens of Southern California designs and installs a variety of golf greens that utilize different manufacturing processes and different varieties of artificial grass. Fashioned to your needs, your backyard putting green can be adjusted for your speed preferences. We use premium-grade artificial turf that has the appearance and bite of organic turf.


The cost of a backyard putting green changes based on the complexity of the design and the skill level necessary to build it. Our developers and dealers have comprehensive training and experience to create the optimal design for clients. If you are looking for something far more elegant, we are an authorized partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The accessibility of the site to our equipment and materials will have a substantial effect on the time and expenditures involved to install a putting green. Charges could be higher if we can’t easily access your location with larger machines, because this requires more physical labor. The requirement for intensive grading as well as other maintenance to prepare the property would also have an influence on the price.

Site Preparation

We do not include site preparation prices into the sq. ft. pricing of your grass. This is due to the fact that a few areas will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you reside in a location where grass grows, we’ll need to get rid of existing soil or turf. If you live in a desert region, there will be much less work to prepare the site for the installation.


While you might be eyeing a backyard putting green, after looking over our portfolio, you may want something more. Perhaps you want to add tee boxes, water hazards, bunkers, or other features. This will have an impact on the total cost of the project should you want to add interesting features to your grass.

Since 1996, we’ve established a reputation for producing superb golf grass; drawing the interest of over 25 prominent PGA Tour professionals who have Southwest Greens turf installed at their homes.
