If you are wanting to build a complete indoor golf facility in Toronto or you’re only wanting to add a personal putting area in yourhouse’s basement for practice, artificial grass is the answer you want. Read on to learn more regarding synthetic grass for indoor golf.
WHY SYNTHETIC TURF FOR INDOORS?
An indoor golf green will not simply beautify the aesthetic of your room, but will also enable you to practice your golf game any time of the year. Artificial grass is an ideal answer for golf simulators, short game putting areas, and a lot more. Artificial grass for indoor golf is:
- Easy to maintain
- Highly customizable
- An increase to property value
HOW ACCURATE IS INDOOR GOLF?
This will greatly vary based on the quality of the turf chosen for your indoor golf area. Inexpensive materials will cause the ball to roll oddly, and unlevel surfaces will make putting difficult. Bunker zones have to be designed with careful attention for indoor installations. You can know more information about our indoor putting greens here.
On the opposite side of indoor golf (simulators), you can expect golf simulators to be very accurate. The majority feature a distance accuracy of around 95% or more. A handful of golf simulators will allow you to use a real ball, whereas inexpensive simulators will have a proprietary practice ball. This practice ball does not have similar results as a real ball and golf hitting mat outside, so keep that in mind.
IS SYNTHETIC GRASS EXPENSIVE TO INSTALL?
It is difficult to estimate precisely how much an indoor golf area will cost to install, but you can typically anticipate spending around $15 and $30+ per square foot of turf installed. A few elements that affect the cost are:
- Base materials
- Site access/prep
- Golf features

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Absolutely! The primary restriction are the dimensions of the area you wish to install a 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 just be soft touches on the ball for short game improvement. Golf entertainment is growing into a large market, so if you own the indoor space to offer putting courses, it can be highly helpful to your property.
WHAT DOES INDOOR TURF INSTALLATION INVOLVE?
Indoor synthetic grass installation can be quite simple due to the fact that there’s no reason for excavating or leveling the earth first. A regular indoor golf turf installation will have the following steps:
- The surface cleaned, and any debris removed, and any cracks filled in and sealed
- Installation of materials utilized to produce varied surfaces such as sand traps
- Lay and fasten a shock pad to create a soft and safe surface
- Install artificial grass and secure edges

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