Type of Green

The cost of a backyard putting green can vary a bit depending on the complexity of the design and what skill level is needed to build it. Our engineers and distributors have vast training and experience to produce the best layout for you.

Site Accessibility

The accessibility of the site to our tools and supplies will have a significant impact on the time and costs needed in installing a putting green. Costs could be higher if we cannot reach your area conveniently with bigger equipment, as this requires more labor. The need for significant grading and other landscaping to prepare the land will impact the price, too.

Site Preparation

Site preparation causes install rates to fluctuate. This is due to the fact that some locations will need existing grass removed, while others will not. If you are living in a location where you have grass growing, we will have to remove present grass or soil. If you live in a desert region, prepping the location for installation will be significantly easier.
