Synthetic grass putting greens offer convenience, versatility, and longevity that can’t be matched by their natural counterparts. You’ll enjoy unlimited access for honing your short game, without leaving home or worrying about inclement weather. A well-built artificial green will also retain its true-to-life speed and consistency through intense use and drastic temperature swings.

The design of your putting green will heavily influence these elements. Not sure where to start? Here are some things to consider:

  • When planning your home putting green, consider factors like available space, shape, terrain, and desired playing experience to guide the design. 
  • Carefully measure your backyard area to find the maximum dimensions for constructing the green. 
  • Allow enough surrounding space to walk around the full perimeter.
  • Typically, at-home putting greens range from 300-1,000 square feet. But even a 10 x 15-foot strip can accommodate holes if space is limited. 
  • Focus more area on the putting zone near the hole, tapering the width as it extends farther out. 
  • For game-like practice, build multiple tiers at various heights with smooth transitions between elevations. 

Synthetic Turf Selection – Finding the Right Putting Green Grass

The turf you choose should closely mimic the texture, grain, and speed of a real bentgrass or Bermuda golf green. Compared to landscape turf, products used for putting greens in Houston have a less pronounced grain and a tighter, denser pile for smooth ball roll. The ideal putting green turf has these characteristics:

  • Dense pile for flawless ball roll
  • Low pile height (0.5” – 0.75”) for realistic green speed
  • Minimal infill for smooth, consistent surface
  • UV-resistant fibers and backing
  • Vibrant green tone similar to golf course greens
