Strengthen Your Short Game

Imagine the freedom of your very own backyard or basement putting green. Perhaps a mini hole or short course. Practicing is convenient; golf scores plummet. And let’s face it… now your house looks really cool.

We can make this dream a reality.

GroTurf specializes in the design and construction of custom residential and commercial putting greens and short game practice areas using high quality, long lasting, artificial grass varieties.

Effective and worthwhile practice means spending the most time on your short game. If that practice can happen in the comfort of your own home, the possibilities for your golf game will be endless! At GroTurf, we strive to maximize your space and create a golf green that’s highly functional while also looking really impressive… beautiful, actually.  All putting greens can be built outdoors as well as inside for year-round practice.

“From start to finish, GroTurf was as professional as they come. Brian, a PGA professional, designed a green for me that was exactly what I was envisioning. I can now practice all my short game needs every day. The turf is high quality, realistic and simply the best I have seen. The installation crew matches the professionalism of the company. They were polite, extremely detailed, and neat and clean. I couldn't be more happy with GroTurf and my new short game area.”

expertly designed indoor & outdoor putting greens in chicago

If you’ve read through our site, by now you know that we use only the finest American-made artificial turf varieties available, and our putting green applications are no different. Putting green design and installation is one of our specialties; even major universities seek out our experience and expertise for construction of their practice greens. 

Our putting green designer, Brian Groszek, is a PGA Golf Professional and award-winning master instructor. Brian is very knowledgeable about what makes an effective practice area; this is one more thing that sets us apart from competitors as it provides a great deal of value to our clients. He will consider your goals and design the type of green that best suits your practice needs as well as the allotted space. You can be confident that the grades will be adequate for worthwhile putting practice and the overall look is exceptionally custom. We are also able to further tailor your putting green or short hole with additional elements such as fringe, first cut, chipping circles, bunkers, mini fairways, and tee boxes, should the space allow.

The MOST important element of your putting green project is the installation. It is absolutely vital that the installation crew be extremely experienced in building putting greens using artificial turf. When it comes to building a custom putting green (indoor or outdoor), there is much more than meets the eye. You must hire experienced professionals in order to receive the best outcome. Remember, you are making an investment, so be sure the project is done correctly, and look no further than GroTurf. Our installation crew is comprised of extremely experienced putting green builders who are very well versed in executing proper grades and completing  the custom designs even better than the initial vision. They are efficient, conscientious, and highly skilled. Without question, the GroTurf crew is definitely who should build your custom artificial putting green or practice area!

There are two types of artificial putting green designs: a short-pile nylon green for putting and short chip shots under 10-20 yards, and a sand in-filled polypropylene green for putting and shots over 20 yards. Some putting greens may have our base panel system, and others will not. GroTurf will custom build the type of putting green that best suits you and the goal for the functionality of the practice space as well as your maintenance expectations. Trust Brian and the GroTurf crew to lead your project from concept to completion. Your custom golf practice area is sure to improve your short game and be a beneficial and enjoyable investment for many years to come.

As seen in People Magazine! GroTurf designed and built a short par 3 hole for Donnie Wahlberg complete with a tee box, fairway, both first and second cut roughs, and a 900 sq. ft. putting green with 5 hole locations.

Advantages of Our Product

“I spent a lot of time researching product and other companies, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose GroTurf for my indoor putting green and simulator room. It was important to me that the quality and craftsmanship match the look of my new home’s basement, and GroTurf did not disappoint. Brian is easy to work with and very knowledgeable, plus I felt more confident having a PGA professional leading this project. From the start, Brian understood exactly what I was envisioning and how to exceed my expectations. The installers are also very precise, friendly, and clearly committed to the overall quality of the company. I highly recommend GroTurf for any artificial grass project, golf or otherwise.”

Concerned about Drainage?

Unlike most turf products that only offer a solid urethane or latex backing with small drainage holes punched in, GroTurf offers a 100% permeable UltraFlo backing system, designed to allow moisture to drain through entirely. This unique feature is one of the ways GroTurf protects your investment.

Collegiate Putting Green Design & Build

Because of our ability to merge PGA professional design with expert craftsmanship, GroTurf is repeatedly chosen and trusted by many top university golf teams to design and build putting greens for their indoor practice facilities. Universities are now utilizing every inch of extra space by transforming smaller, unused areas into putting greens for their golf teams.

The coaches desire a green that will roll like a real putting green, be able to hold a chip shot like a real green, and most importantly, simulate specific putts they desire their players to make during a round of golf– putts that if holed on a consistent basis, create winning players and teams. Because of this objective, Brian tends to keep the design of these putting greens simple and maximize the putting area.

We are kicking some butt since we have installed the GroTurf green. The Puttview goes in tomorrow, and we will continue to be one of the best putting teams in the country. Your product and professionalism were above and beyond my expectations. Go Deacs!
