Learn what affects the price in Pittsburgh and why in this piece.

Looking for a backyard putting green?

Wondering how much of an investment you will need to prepare for?

Here are some of the elements that impact the expense of synthetic turf.

Putting Green Size

Though putting greens on the PGA Tour measure about 5,000 to 6,000 square feet, you could typically hone your complete short game on a significantly smaller green. Below are some general price guidelines:

Artificial Putting Green Pricing Guidelines: Prices range from $20 to $35 per square foot

* Factors like size of project, layout, project accessibility, and location create price fluctuation and may lead costs to deviate from guidelines*

Type of Green

Southwest Greens Pittsburgh designs and installs a broad array of golf greens that utilize multiple construction techniques and varied types of synthetic grass. Tailor-made to your needs, your backyard putting green could be customized to meet your desired outcomes.


The cost of a backyard putting green fluctuates depending on difficulty of the design and the skill level necessary to create it. Our developers and dealers have vast training and experience to create the right layout for you.

Site Access

The site’s accessibility to our equipment and materials will have a substantial effect on the time and costs involved to install a putting green. Prices can be higher if we can’t reach your location easily with larger machinery, as it means 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 because some locations will require the removal of existing grass, while others will not. If you reside in a location where you have grass growing, we will have to remove present turf or soil. If you reside in a desert area, preparing the place for the installation will be much easier.
