Backyard putting greens are all the rage in places like California that have pleasant year-round weather. They are a great way to utilize some backyard space and will help you improve your game. And when you install an artificial grass putting green, you’ll have a yard that looks good and functions like it’s meant to, all year long.

But how much does it cost to install an artificial green?

Artificial turf does cost more to install than natural sod, but it is the long-term monetary and time savings that make this upfront price worth it. Besides, it’s likely you haven’t considered another factor: will it cost less to install a putting green than it would to practice at a club?

Fees Associated With A Golf Club

Once you are a member of a club, you may be able to access the driving range or practice greens at no additional cost. But how much did you have to pay to join that club, and when you factor in how many games you play a year, what do you spend per game?

Fees Associated With Municipal Courses

You may have municipal golf courses in your area, but that doesn’t mean they come free, with the average weekend cost of a round and cart rental at $35. Higher-end courses with more amenities go up from there, but are you really going to have to pay a fee every time you want to get some practice in?

Fees Associated With Your Backyard Artificial Green

You won’t have to pay a dime to practice on your backyard green; you won’t even need to put on a shirt! The upfront cost of your installation will be higher than sod, but you’ll be able to knock out a whole host of ongoing expenses:

  • Mowing and a mower
  • Fertilizer
  • Weedkiller
  • Pesticide
  • Fungicide
  • Regularly required care to keep it playable
  • Ongoing watering bills to keep it alive and green
