We can certainly help you with an indoor putting green if that’s your thing. While we don’t get a lot of interest for this type of product, there’s enough inquiry for us to stock a specific indoor golf grass.
Update from 2017: We are now getting more and more interest for these indoor putting green and have included this grass as part of our DIY kit.
What’s different about this synthetic grass?
It’s much thicker and denser than our other grasses. Why? Because typically you can’t use much infill indoors. So the grass needs to be thicker to withstand foot traffic and ensure you get the best possible roll.
Is there any downside to this grass?
The only issue is that these indoor greens are really only good for putting. Lofted shots don’t work as well as they do with our other varieties.
But if you only want to putt, then you won’t have any problems at all. This is exactly what Callawey Golf in Melbourne were after …
… they wanted an indoor facility so customers could try their range of putters. Callawey were very specific in what they wanted:
- A beautiful roll
- Long lasting
- Low maintenance
- And a good looking product for their expensive showroom
And this is what they received. The green rolls exceptionally well and they were very happy with it.
Here’s two more things to consider for your indoor putting green:
- If you’re going to install straight onto concrete, then you need to work out how you’re going to install the putting cups. It can be tricky to core drill these holes, especially if you’re renting. Some golfers have chosen not to worry about cups at all, or use some “egg ring” cups as an alternative.
- If you want to have proper cups then the best way around this with an indoor putting green is to build a little floor. It’s quite easy and this has been popular with some golf shops around the country. In time, I’ll add this option to our DIY Guide so you’ll know exactly how to do it.
