I may have missed it, but what are you going to use as the surface? My goal this winter is to build one, too.

Toyota Camry trunk carpeting.  Seriously.  Do a google search of camry putting green.  Best bang for the buck

There's some slight natural breaks due to the floor. Really the perfect amount. More to groove stroke than practice breaking putts anyway

Looks good. Much more sustainable during NE winters as well [emoji1360]

Does the Camry kit include instructions on how to adhere to the osb?

No. I used carpet adhesive. Only an extremely thin layer is needed. If I were to do it again I might look at alternatives so I don't have any bleed through like I got. 

No big deal, goo gone and scrubbing got most of it out and it doesn't affect the roll

Hey over this past weekend I started to do the same saw a deal on some "outdoor carpet" at Menards for $0.61/sqft I used my 3D printed stimp meter to verify the speed rolles about a 10 I only added a 1/4" padding underneath so I don't have full depth cups. 20190906_172828.jpeg20190906_175002.jpeg20190906_184935.jpeg

My brother-in-law installed a synthetic turf green about 4 years ago and it put it too close to trees and his turf is need of replacement. It gets worn out, washed out from the rain, sap from the trees, etc. Unless you cover it/protect it from the elements, then you'll need to replace the turf more often than you think, especially if you live in a harsh climate with cold winters or really hot/wet summers. 

 

I put in a green last year and it is right next to trees.  I live in Cincinnati Ohio and we had a super wet first half of the year and then we had desert heat since then - just got out of the 90's today.  After 1 year in, the turf is no different than day 1.  It is infilled with Envirofill and I had to add more this spring.  Pine Needles are a killer - they are hard to blow off of there.  I imagine sap would be the worst, but that would mean a pine tree was on top of the green.  I would keep the green away from pine trees.  My douglas fir is too close and I pay when it drops needles.

The green shown was about $12k, and I added the light turf myself.  Got the turf from Amazon supplier and then had to haul 6+ ton of gravel for the base - then infill that with silica sand.  I also have another bunker in the trees with regular sand in it.  I have a mat that I hit into a net that I built the frame and can hit from the mat to the green or hit from anywhere in the yard.

My green turf is a better putting surface which means it is not easy to hold a shot on it.  It is about 35' at its longest width.

It is a lot of work blowing leaves and tree crap off but I do that 4-5 times a week.  I use the hell out of it and love it.  I would go a little bigger if I ever did it again, and make sure you get contours in there - I love the ones that I had put in mine.

If you have any specific questions, ask away.  I used Tour Greens Ohio and they were outstanding to work with.

If you go real grass you have to mow all the time, have a mower and deal with disease - it would not be any fun - I spend 10 minutes with a cordless leaf blower and I am golden (if leaves are dropping).

The type of turf matters as well - some types are no appropriate for areas with more humidity (like where I live).
