Discover why indoor putting greens are getting more popular.
1. WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most critical parts of your golf game is putting. For most amateur golfers, putting can account for nearly fifty percent of shots. So putting is the part of their game that most golfers want to practice all the time, right?
The majority of golfers will decide to practice driving ranges and skip putting completely. Does this sound like you too?
Yes driving ranges are a great time, and seeing those long, gratifying shots are great, but are your putts missing that important element they need?
An industry-leading putting green turf is manufactured with low pile artificial grass that allows golf balls to roll true. It is a little different from traditional turf because it is not as dense as the artificial grass you see on lawns, therefore it’ll help you better your short game.
2. ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers and can replace naturally growing grass because it’s durable. Trying to maintain a natural grass putting green indoors would be impossible, so artificial turf is what you need indoors.
An indoor putting green will both update the look of your home and will, more importantly, allow you to practice your golf game in any season or weather, and the upside of installing an indoor putting green exceed the expense substantially.
Your green is customizable based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole designs, features, and color that appeal to you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
Neither rain, snow, or scorching temperatures will prevent you from practicing your putting indoors.
The money you would save by installing an indoor putting green is one of the biggest advantages — you will save on time and money used for travel, memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf has next to no maintenance, even less indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green in top shape is easier than keeping up other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
Regardless if you’re new to the game or you can’t stand being without some version of golf, an indoor putting green will help to improve your short game more than anything else.
Improve the Value of Your Home
Indoor greens are a unique feature of your home to help to completely transform the look and feel — show everyone your sense of personality and style.
