    Are any of you installing artificial golf putting greens? I have contacted a company advertising in many of the trade magazines and they are sending me information. They say the greens sell well and are profitable, easy to install, etc. I just would like to talk to someone from our real world to see if this is the case.

    Thanks,

  2. Greg,

    I have tried this a couple of times over the last 15 years. You have to have a market that is willing to pay the price for one of those greens. I think they average about $ 5000 min to do. I would keep it open as an add on service if a client inquired about a putting green but I dont hink I would tie up any great amount of capital in it and then pile marketing cost on top of it. I found the marketing cost to be some what high for this product.

    Sure be fun to have though. They play quite well.
