Southwest Greens’ synthetic putting green products are precisely manufactured right here in the United States to simulate the look, feel, and performance of natural grass. Your investment in a backyard putting green will boost the value of your property while also improving your short game. So, what does a backyard putting green cost? Our synthetic putting greens typically cost anywhere from $20 to $35 per sq. ft., based on these features:

Putting Green Size

Though putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you can generally perfect your whole short game on a green that is much smaller. Here are some general pricing criteria (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and above: $20 to $30 per sq. ft.

400 - 2,000 square feet: $25 to $35 per sq. ft.

Under 400 square feet: $30 to $40 per sq. ft.

Type of Green

Southwest Greens of Western Canada designs and installs an assortment of golf greens that utilize diverse construction methods and different varieties of synthetic turf. Your backyard putting green can be customized to fit your needs, including the speed you desire. We use premium-grade artificial turf that has the look, feel, and bite of natural turf.


The cost of a backyard putting green varies based on the complexity of the design and the skill level necessary to build it. Our designers and dealers have comprehensive training and expertise to create the optimal configuration for clients. If you’re seeking something far more elegant, we are an official partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The ease of access to our gear and materials will have a significant effect on the time and expenses involved in installing a putting green. Costs may be higher if we cannot access your location easily with large equipment, because this requires more physical labor. The requirement for extensive grading and other landscaping to prepare the ground will also have an influence on the price.

Site Preparation

Site preparation prices aren’t included in the square foot pricing of your turf. This is because certain areas will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you live in a location where grass grows, we will have to remove existing grass or soil. If you live in a desert location, the effort required to prep the area for installation will be reduced dramatically.


While you might be thinking about a backyard putting green, after viewing our portfolio, you might desire more. Perhaps you would want to include bunkers, tee boxes, water hazards, or other upgrades. This will have an impact on the project’s cost as a whole should you intend to add interesting aspects to your turf.

Since 1996, we’ve earned a reputation for producing quality golf greens; drawing the attention of over 25 prominent PGA Tour pros who have Southwest Greens grass installed at their homes. At Southwest Greens, we consider ourselves to be the masters of installation technology. The cost of installation will differ depending on your area, landscaping needs, what you’re looking for in a putting green, and any extra features you want.
