1. WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most important parts of your golf game is putting. For a lot of non-professional golfers, putting can comprise nearly 50% of shots. So putting is the part of their game that most golfers want to work on often, right?
Not so fast.
The majority of players will prefer to work on driving ranges and skip putting altogether. Does this sound like you too?
Sure, driving ranges are a good time, and seeing those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts lacking that finishing element they need?
An industry-leading putting green turf is made from low pile artificial grass allowing golf balls to roll true. It’s a slightly different from regular turf because it isn’t as thick as the artificial grass used for lawns, therefore it’ll help you practice your short game.
2. ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made with synthetic fibers and can be used instead of natural grass because it is durable. Trying to maintain a natural grass putting green inside would be a nightmare, so artificial turf is the indoor king.
An indoor putting green will not only improve the look and feel of your home but will, more importantly, give you the chance to practice your golf game in all seasons and weather, and the upside of having an indoor putting green exceed the investment significantly.
Customize your green based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole designs, features, and color that you like the most.
Not Affected by Weather
Neither rain, snow, or scorching temperatures will impede you from practicing your short game indoors.
The money you would save by installing an indoor putting green is one of the biggest benefits — you will save on time and money wasted on traveling, memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf has next to no maintenance, even less indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green clean and in tip-top shape is less difficult than maintaining other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
If you’re a novice or can’t go a week without some form 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 great addition to your home to help you transform the appearance — show off your style and love of golf.
Host Fun Parties for Friends & Family
Welcome friends or extended family over for dinner and practice your short game with them. Even the younger crowd can enjoy putting.
