WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
Putting is one of the most critical aspects of your golf game. For many non-professional golfers, it can account for up to fifty percent of shots. So putting is an area most golfers decide to work on regularly, right?
Not so fast.
The majority of players will decide to practice driving ranges and skip putting entirely. Does this sound like you too?
Sure, driving ranges are a great time, and hitting those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts short of that final element they need?
An industry-leading putting green turf is comprised of low pile artificial grass which allows golf balls to roll true. It’s slightly different from regular turf because it isn’t as dense as the artificial grass you might see on lawns, and it’ll help you better your short game.
ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers that can replace naturally growing grass since it is durable. Maintaining a natural grass putting green indoors would be terrible, so artificial turf is the indoor king.
An indoor putting green will both update the look of your home and will, more importantly, allow you to practice your golf game in any kind of season or weather, and the upside of installing an indoor putting green surpass the expense substantially.
Personalize your green based on your preferences — choose the design, contour, hole layouts, features, and color that suit you the most.
Not Affected by Weather
No amount of weather will impede you from practicing your putting indoors.
The money you would save by installing an indoor putting green is one of the biggest advantages — you will save on the time and money spent traveling, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf has next to zero maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping your indoor putting green in top shape is less work than keeping up other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
Whether you are a novice or can’t go a week without some kind of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the means to improve your short game a bunch.
