Southwest Greens’ artificial putting green products are skillfully produced here in the USA to simulate the look, feel, and performance of organic grass. Investing in a backyard putting green will boost your property value and improve your short game. So, how much does a backyard putting green cost? Southwest Greens artificial putting greens are priced from $20 to $35 per sq. ft., depending on these features:

Putting Green Measurements

Although PGA Tour putting greens measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you can usually hone your whole short game on a significantly smaller green. The following are some general pricing rules of thumb (prices vary based on travel, cost of materials, and accessibility):

2,000 square feet and more: $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.

Style of Turf

We design and install an assortment of golf greens that utilize various manufacturing methods and different varieties of synthetic grass. Fashioned to your needs, your backyard putting green can be adjusted for your speed preferences. We use premium-grade artificial turf that has the look, feel, and bite of organic grass.


The cost of a backyard putting green varies depending on how complex the design of the green is and what skill level is required to create it. Our designers and dealers have comprehensive training and knowledge to create the optimal style for clients. If you’re looking for something even more elegant, we are an official partner of Nicklaus Design.

Site Access

The ease of access to our equipment and tools will have a considerable effect on the time and expenses involved to install a putting green. Costs may be higher if we can’t access your location easily with larger equipment, because this requires more manual labor. The need for intensive grading and other maintenance to prepare the site will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

We do not include site preparation prices into the sq. ft. pricing of your grass. This is related to the fact that a few locations will need existing grass removed, and some will not. If you reside in a region where you have grass growing, we’ll need to remove existing soil or grass. If you live in a desert area, there will be much less work to prepare the site for the installation.


While you may be thinking about a backyard putting green, after looking over our portfolio, you may want something more. Maybe you’d like to add tee boxes, water hazards, bunkers, or other enhancements. This will influence the project’s cost as a whole should you wish to add other features to your greens.
