See what affects the cost in Detroit and all of Michigan and why in this post.

Looking for a backyard putting green?

Wondering how much of an investment you’ll need?

The following are a few of the factors that influence the expense of artificial turf.

Putting Green Dimensions

While putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you may often train your complete short game on a significantly smaller green. Here are a few general pricing guidelines:

Pricing Guidelines for Synthetic Putting Greens: $20 to $35 per sq. ft.

* Variables like project size, design, project access, and location create price volatility and could lead prices to vary from the norm*

Kind of Green

The price of a backyard putting green varies based on how intricate the design is and what skill level is necessary to construct it. Our developers and dealers have vast training and experience to produce the finest layout for you.

Site Accessibility

The accessibility of the site to our tools and materials will have a substantial effect on the time and expenses involved to install a putting green. Prices can rise if we are unable to enter your place conveniently with larger machines, as this demands more hands-on labor. The need for significant grading and other landscaping to prepare the land will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Site preparation causes install rates to fluctuate. This is because some locations will require the removal of existing grass, and some will not. If you reside in a location where grass is growing, we’ll need to remove preexisting greens or soil. If you reside in a desert region, there will be much less work to prepare the site for the installation.
