back yard putting green


Recommended Posts

I would love to put a small putting green in my back yard. I have a hill and a flat area at the top that's just wasted space. No idea of cost or what's involved in a project like this? also what for the winter would you need to tarp it?

 

Any suggestions or advice would be amazing.

My Dad did this when we were younger.  It's a BIG commitment from a maintenance perspective.  He wound up making a deal with a local greenskeeper to get a hand push (manual) mower.  Had to cut it every day and roll it often.  Are you up for that?

I was thinking of doing the same thing (putting green) but using artificial turf instead. No mowing, etc.

I'm dying to put one in my side yard but obviously would go with synthetic green, there are so many to choose from depending on the type of grass and speed, I've seen some very nice ones that rival a country club putting green. Tour greens/ southwest greens / pro green are just a few out there that do very good synthetics. Hopefully we can both get this done sooner than later. Good luck and let us know what you wind up doing.

i can if i'm doing it out of real grass, not sure if that's the way to go or artificial.

Do you have a source for the different artificial grasses?

I think artificial would be the best way to go. I've been working at a golf course for a few years now and all the work that goes in to maintaining a good green takes time and patience that takes a special type of person haha

Aside from the online companies I mentioned above there are some higher end landscaping companies that do putting greens around my area but I haven't gotten that far yet unfortunately.

I used to work at a private golf course here in my area so the work is not a concern of mine it's just the winter that i'm worried about here in Canada.

I'm looking at doing this project next summer as well!  I'm using artificial turf for sure.  Youtube has some good tips a couple of videos I have found that I will use as a resource are below:

If you end up doing one, share some pics and tricks

You should leave the trees in, you know, to practice those behind the tree shots, lol. I know I can use that practice...

I've had an artificial green for almost 2 years, looks the same as the day it was laid, no maintenance, works well, can chip and putt and the kids love it.attachicon.gifIMG_0909.JPG

Bee gee

 

Can you share where you purchased the 'green' mat. That's a project for me next spring.
