WHAT IS A PUTTING GREEN USED FOR?
One of the most critical aspects of your game as a golfer is putting. For most non-professional golfers, it can represent nearly fifty percent of shots. So this is something most golfers opt to work on often, right?
The majority of golfers will prefer to practice driving ranges and avoid putting entirely. Are you guilty of this, too?
Of course driving ranges are a great time, and hitting those long, satisfying shots are great, but are your putts lacking that important element they need?
A top-quality putting green turf is comprised of low pile artificial grass that allows golf balls to roll true. It is slightly different from regular turf because it is not as dense as the artificial grass you see on lawns, and it’ll help you practice your short game.
ARE INDOOR PUTTING GREENS WORTH IT?
Artificial indoor golf putting greens are made of synthetic fibers and can be used instead of natural grass because it’s durable. Trying to maintain an organic grass putting green inside would be impossible, so artificial turf is king for indoor.
An indoor putting green will both update the look of your Fresno home and will, more importantly, let you practice your golf game in any type of weather or season, and the upside of installing an indoor putting green outweigh the investment substantially.
Your green can be customized based on your preferences — choose the style, contour, hole layouts, features, and color that you like the most.
Not Affected by Weather
Neither weather will impede you from practicing your short game indoors.
The money you will save by installing an indoor putting green is one of the biggest perks — you’ll save on the time and money used for travel, club memberships, and caddy fees.
Easy to Maintain
Artificial turf requires almost no maintenance, especially indoors. Keeping an indoor putting green clean and in tip-top shape requires less work than maintaining other floorings.
Practice Your Game Any Time
Whether you are new to the game or you can’t go a week without some kind of golf, an indoor putting green will give you the means to improve your short game more than anything else.
Improve the Value of Your Home
Indoor greens are a great add-on to your home to help to transform the look and feel — show off your love of the game.
