Artificial Putting Greens

We’ve all been there before, that moment of envy when we see pictures of how some industrious homeowner found a way to make their backyard even more awesome. From backyard putting greens to personal driving ranges, incorporating your favorite hobby into your backyard setup is every golfer’s dream, but for most of us, that dream may seem prohibitively expensive.

While installing a full 18-hole course on your property may be the epitome of impracticality (and if that’s your dream then we can’t help you there, sorry), practicing your game from the comforts of your own backyard is much simpler, and more affordable, than you probably originally thought.

Purchase Green Premier Putting Greens are the first texturized PE (Polyethylene) putting greens on the market. Here is a selection of our putting green grasses:

Putting Green Grasses

1/2″ Olive Bi-Color Putting Green

These are beautiful olive bi-color putting greens with an amazing 48 oz. face weight and 88 oz. total weight.

You get the performance of nylon with the durability, color resistance, and price of PE. Designed for golfers of all stages that want their practice green to perform like the real thing.

Please note, the 1/2″ putting green is ideal for smaller putting greens that will not require seaming. You can achieve a STIMP rating (more on STIMP ratings below) of 10 to 11 when the grass is infilled with 1 to 1.5 lbs. per square foot of #30 silica with a 16/30 Herofill top dressing.

3/4″ Olive Bi-Color Putting Green

These are beautiful olive bi-color putting greens. Don’t settle for single color putting greens anymore.

Designed for golfers of all stages who want their practice green to perform like the real thing.

The 3/4″ putting greens are used for larger putting greens that require seaming. You can achieve a STIMP rating of 10 to 11 when the grass is infilled with 1.5 to 2 lbs. per square foot of #30 silica with a 16/30 Herofill top dressing.

Other Considerations

So what is a STIMP rating? Why, it’s the result you get using a Stimpmeter, of course! Okay, so what’s a Stimpmeter? A Stimpmeter is a basically a metal ramp used to measure how far a golf ball will roll on a putting surface. Invented by Edward Stimpson, the Stimpmeter is used to determine a green’s STIMP rating. If a ball rolls 10 feet using a Stimpmeter, the green is said to have a STIMP rating of 10. Pretty simple. You can learn more about Stimpmeters and STIMP ratings by clicking here.

Like our landscape grasses, Purchase Green’s artificial putting greens feature our industry-best backing system – a triple-layer, 8 oz. primary backing and a 32 oz. latex secondary backing.

Driving range mats are great compliments to a backyard putting green. If you’re so inclined, we also offer our T-Line Grass, which is designed for the serious golfer (or the golfer that wants people to think he/she is serious!). The 1.6-inch, texturized polypropylene product can hold a standard golf tee (no more rubber tees!) – so you get the reaction and impact you would expect on a golf course! It is designed to be used at the driving range on a golf course or as a driving mat in your back yard (into your driving net of course.)
