If you’re looking to make an entire indoor golf facility in Los Angeles and Southern California or you’re just looking to add a personal putting area in your home’s cellar to practice, artificial grass is the answer you are looking for. Keep reading to learn more about synthetic turf for indoor golf.
WHY ARTIFICIAL GRASS FOR INDOORS?
An indoor putting green will not simply change the look and feel of your room, but will also enable you to practice your golf game in any season or weather. Artificial grass is a perfect answer for golf simulator areas, short game putting areas, and so much more. Artificial grass for indoor golf is:
- Simple to maintain
- Highly customizable
- Good for property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will largely vary based on the quality of the green employed for your indoor putting area. Inexpensive materials will cause the ball to roll weirdly, and unlevel surfaces will make putting tough. Bunker sections need to to be built with careful consideration for indoor installations. You can read more info on our indoor putting greens here.
On the opposite side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be pretty precise. The majority feature a distance accuracy of nearly 95% or more. A handful of golf simulators will enable you to play with a real ball, on the other hand, cheaper simulators will need a specific practice ball. This practice ball will not have similar results as a real ball and golf hitting mat outside, so bear that in mind.
IS SYNTHETIC GRASS EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is tough to estimate precisely how much an indoor golf surface will cost to install, but you can usually plan on spending between $15 and $30+ per square foot of grass installed. A few aspects which impact the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Definitely! The primary constraint are the dimensions of the space you wish to install your short game or putting course indoors. With these, you do not have to be concerned with balls getting hit into the ceiling because there will simply be soft touches on the ball for short game improvement. Golf entertainment is turning into a large market, so if you own the indoor space to install putting courses, it can be extremely helpful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR TURF INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor artificial turf installation can be fairly simple because there’s no requirement for digging or leveling the earth first. A normal indoor golf grass installation will require the following steps:
- The floor cleaned, and clear of debris, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials used to create varied surfaces like bunkers
- Lay and fasten a shock pad to make a soft and safe surface
- Lay the synthetic turf and fasten edges

It features a 5,000 square foot putting surface, two TrackMan swing analytic systems, and four outdoor hitting bays.
