How much is a synthetic golf green going to cost?
The most common question I receive is, "what is the price of a synthetic golf green?" or "how much is one of these bad boys gunna cost me?".
It's a logical question and one that needs to be answered. This page will give you a rundown on the costs and options involved when it comes to the price of a synthetic golf green.
Please note: It's only a guide. Price and costs are likely to change from job to job, especially if you're after something custom built. We have worked on projects ranging from tiny backyard putting greens, rooftop greens to to full golf holes with bunkers and tees, through to mini putt putt courses. If you can dream something up, the chances are we can build it.
We essentially offer 3 types of services for our synthetic golf greens and products:
1: DIY - For those wanting a small green on a budget and who have some handyman skills our DIY option is for you. We can send you all the grass, the accessories and DIY Guide and you're away. This is the most economical way to get a premium backyard putting green. Essentially, we provide you with grass and accessories and you install it. The average cost for DIY is typically between $1000 - $2000 (but this is a guide only).
For your reference, at time of writing, our premium synthetic grass prices are between $35m2 - $60m2
A variation: We are now selling grass all over the country and clients are getting local installers to do the installation. We are also getting quite the portfolio of local installers that can do the work. This method can work out more cheaply because you're working with a contractor who lives locally and can get good prices on base materials etc. This option is brilliant for those that want a green between 20m2 - 70m2 but are looking at something more economical than our full install price. Please contact us to discuss.
2: Full Install - This is a fully done-for-you service. We help with design, but more importantly, we make your dream a reality by constructing your golf green from scratch. No need to worry about getting your hands dirty and having to deal with earthworks, drainage and laying of grass. We also clean up your site afterwards.
A full install is typically reserved for larger greens that are at least 50m2. Anything smaller and there's no economy of scale. As a very rough starting point, full install pricing starts at around $8,000 and goes up from there. But pricing can vary dramatically.
Final price is determined by a range of factors including,
- final shape and design
- your location
- any drainage issues
- bunkers, tees and hitting nets required
If you're keen for full install I recommend starting by filling out the form on this page.
Please note: In some instances, especially for large greens or commercial venues, we will require a site inspection.
3: Portable - As of 2019 we have introduced a portable golf green concept to Australia. These synthetic golf greens come "ready to go". There's virtually no construction required, you lay down the grass and can be putting in minutes.
These greens also fall under the category of "premium". They are on a thick rubber base, use the very best grass and are totally custom. They take the normal putting mats you can find in golf stores and Ebay, and totally ramp it.
Price for these start at around $1,250 and go up from there. I'll be launching this great new product shortly, but if you're interested, please contact me.
These greens are ideal for indoors, rooftops, balcony's, pro shops, corporate events (branding and custom designs available) and the office.

DIY Golf Greens
If you are on a budget and/or you're the handy type and don't mind getting your hands a little dirty then the DIY option is for you. We now stock and supply a specific DIY synthetic grass. This grass has been created to be easier to install and it's perfect for small backyard putting greens. But don't worry, this grass is premium in every way to our other grasses (UV protection, made for golf, guaranteed etc). The only limitation is you can really only hit lofted shots from inside 20 metres.
We have created this product because the cost of a fully installed synthetic golf green can be prohibitively expensive for some ($8K-$50K +).
Our DIY grass allows you to work to a tighter budget and is also much easier to install.
- There's less infill required because this grass has a shorter pile height
- It's easier to cut and make joins so it's ultimately way easier to self-install
- This grass is very dense, so it's still very durable
We can ship you the grass and the accessories anywhere in Australia and then it's over to you. Price starts at around $900 and goes up from there. The average price is in the ballpark of $1750 but please get a quote to work out your exact cost.
One more thing: If you think DIY is for you but you're a little worried about the actual process of installation, here's two more important points:
a. We provide you with a comprehensive DIY Guide (including videos) that walks you through the process. We are also available to help you via email and phone. Countless DIY jobs have been saved by making a quick phone call.
b. Find a local installer to help you. Most small time excavation businesses or local landscapers will be able to assist you. Some extra help here will actually save you lots of time and ensure you get the greatest possible result.
Full Install - Large
This is our premium service. It's a complete Done-For-You service and you receive a fully installed green/project by our gun installers and a championship quality golf product at completion.
We use our specially sourced platinum made for golf grass. These golf greens can take in lofted and chip shots from greater than 20m distance (even shots from 200m +) and offer the most realistic golf experience possible. These greens will mimic the playing characteristics you see on the golf course and will typically be greater than 70 sqm in size.
They are custom designed and built from the ground up. We like to work with our Platinum clients from start to finish and give them the absolute best golf set up possible.
We also offer our platinum service to our commercial clients such as mini putt putt courses or pitch and putt. Due to the custom nature of these greens, price is strictly on an application basis and we like to start the ball rolling by recommending a site inspection.
As a guide, price is going to start at $20,000 and go up from there. If you're after a super large putting green (say 300m2 with tees and bunker) you're looking at somewhere in the ballpark of $65K.
Full Install - Small
These greens are typically found in your average sized backyard and still utilise the very best synthetic grass technology. Sizing is normally in the vicinity of 20-50 sqm in size and don't normally have bunkers or hitting tees (because there's just not the room).
Popular size for this product is 3.5m x 8m but you can have anything you like. They are fully custom for each individual property. And, in most cases, we can quote via the phone and email. To get started, please fill in the form over here.
Price for these smaller type greens are around the $8,000 to $15,000 mark.
Please note: Finding a local installer for these types of greens is becoming a popular option if you're located in an area where we don't have our own install team.
Putt Putt Courses
We can design and install your own putt putt course or even a pitch and putt. These mini golf courses are ideal for private or commercial use. And with Putt Putt making a comeback, there's never been a better time to get involved.
We also feel we've pioneered a unique form of putt putt. We've removed windmills and other strange objects and offer a more traditional golf experience. In our thinking, this attracts all golfers, both those new to the game, and those who are more traditional. And perhaps best of all, our putt putt system is way more cost effective.
A very good commercial quality putt putt course will start at around $150K and go up from there. All pricing options are determined by size of venue and landscaping. Please see this page to learn more.
Portable Golf Greens
These are brand new to Australia. There is not the manufacturing here in Australia to produce these types of putting surfaces economically. So we've searched the world and partnered with a premium supplier of these portable golf greens.
They truly are amazing and offer a brilliant roll. And because they are on a solid rubber base, you have proper holes and mini flags included (way better than the normal standard mats).
These products will be available in March 2019. They can come in custom sizes if you wish (we can actually have something created that, for example, will fit perfectly on your balcony, office or pro shop).
More info to come. But please contact us if you're interested.
More Information about Synthetic Golf Greens and Price
We offer a Professional Onsite Consultation service for our large greens and commercial clients. This is reserved for clients who want the absolute best golf green possible and are interested in working with us closely to get their dream golf set-up. In most cases, your green complex will be over 100m2.
We travel to site, give you multiple options and provide professional drawings and other designs on what we think will work well. (Pricing for this starts at $500 + GST and depends on your location).
The price of this consultation is then deducted from the final price if you decide to proceed with Supreme Greens. Please click here if you're keen to get started.
If you'd rather not pay for the on site consultation, no worries, we can offer you a price guide based on your own measurements and details you send through via email. Note that these prices are subject to a final site inspection by our install team if you decide to proceed. Please click here if you are interested in this option.
WHAT YOU GET WITH OUR FULL INSTALL
A full install takes the hassle out of ordering the grass, installing it and then worrying if you've done it properly. Our trained team of experts can come in and complete your green from start to finish - leave the hard work to us. Our team know as much about synthetic golf grass and the construction of synthetic greens as anyone in Australia.
Every install is different. Each customer has a set of different ideas, designs and needs and it's almost impossible to give you an accurate "ballpark" price right off the bat. So the only way to get a quote is to tell us exactly what you'd like. We need to know the size of the green and any accessories you have in mind. This is also the best time to send any images through of your proposed green site, as well as a rough drawing with measurements.
Important information: Our full install jobs are led by experienced operators who have been chosen and trained by us. These guys are the best in the business and have a passion for golf and understand the game. They work to our high standard and don't take shortcuts.
But there is a catch... ... In most cases it's not profitable or cost effective for us to travel and install the smaller type greens (say under 20m2).
Just so you're sure, we essentially have two types of full install clients:
- Large Golf Green - these are bigger greens (over 70m2) that are installed on larger properties and mimic the characteristics of normal type greens i.e. you can play full lofted shots onto them. Also, these greens are designed to resemble their real life cousins. We also do putt putt courses and other golf projects for our commercial clients.
- Smaller Golf Green - these putting greens are usually under 50m2 in size and will be primarily used for putting and small chipping only.
Full install will start at around $8000 + GST for these small greens (depending on location and the exact shape of green you want). Pricing for large synthetic golf greens starts at around $20,000 (again, everything is dependent on final size and shape)
If you're working to a tight budget then our full install option might not be for you. Please consider DIY if this is the case.
