How Much Does an Indoor Putting Green Cost?

by Dec 27, 2022Uncategorized

Here in Vancouver, it can be difficult to keep your putting sharp during the off-season. . . So why not bring the putting green indoors!

You may be wondering how much an indoor putting green costs, but that really depends. You can spend as little as $200 or as much as $60,000 and everything in between. Let’s break down your options and the variables involved:

Variable 1: size of the green

One thing to keep in mind is that the rolls of putting turf only come in a 15’ wide roll (and any length). So a simple 15×4’ mat might be all you need for your home office, but most indoor golf academies we do are closer to 15×30’. The first step is to measure the dimensions of your room and determine what the ideal size would be. As you’ll see below, an indoor green can range anywhere from $13/sq ft up to $150/sq ft depending on the following variables:

Variable 2: the sub-surface

Sure, you can just roll the turf out on the floor like a carpet and have an instant putting surface, however it gets trickier when we need to add cups or undulations to the indoor green. In order to sink a cup in the ground, we either need to build it up with something or in some cases with concrete floors, we can core a hole into the ground. The highest performing sub-surface is a product called “Tour Links”, which is a panel system that snaps together like puzzle pieces. Although it’s the mostly costly option, it provides the truest roll of the ball which is essential for high-level players. Like with most things in life, you get what you pay for…

Variable 3: the add-ons

For larger spaces it may make sense to add a layer of fringe, a chipping pad or even a white turf bunker! Our favourite addition is the Putt-View technology which is used by all the top tour players (Tiger Woods, Bryson Dechambeau, etc.). If you’re able to fork out $20K+ this is the coolest golf technology that money can buy, just check out their instagram page @puttview. Indoor putting greens are also the perfect addition to your indoor golf simulator! Anything you can dream up, we can probably make it happen for the right price 🙂
