That does sound nice for sure. It has been picking up in those areas. If Austin Matthews can develop in Arizona then they can come from anywhere. Do you follow the NHL or more just playing?

O yah my stars just lost the cup... I follow every team though

That was a tough one for sure, though Tampa has been quite a team lately. Lots of talent there for sure. Before we take this tread over there is an NHL thread below, would love your thoughts.

Nice start guys.  I found a fairly large Birdieball mat on the Goodwill auction site earlier this year, but it's too large for any of my rooms.  I can't wait to hear your thoughts on this!

Nice! In all of the stuff that came with in the box you can email them and probably get the parts if you want to cut it down

Yep.  We're redoing a room to be my office and moved a bunch of stuff out of it.  Once I know how much floor space I'll have, I'll cut it down.

And so it begins...

The driver was so right when he said, "it's for you."  With new concrete from the street to the back patio and everything in between, he was unable to pull up in front of my house.

With so much outside that needed doing in the weather that only held dry until mid afternoon, it will have to be daylight tomorrow before I get a chance to inventory what is inside the box and capture images to share.  My fellow testers have already posted some awesome photos so I will do my best to add to the collection without too much repetition.

First impression without opening the box, it is not as heavy as I had expected and doesn't make much noise being carried.  It survived it's trip from Colorado to Western NY without any evidence of excitement from the appearance of the box. 

I'm at the end of my 5th decade and I should probably start to consider getting someone else to do such things as move the 5 yards of dirt the contractor so gladly left for me to level off my front yard when he was widening the driveway.  The good part is discovering I can still shovel for a cumulative 12 hours since yesterday morning, filling wheelbarrow and spreading dirt across the lawn, and seeding will begin as soon as possible.  This is all necessary as the deal with my better half is that golf can happen all week as long as the weekends are for the house. 

Tee time tomorrow afternoon ⛳ 🏌️‍♂️

it’s here!! FedEx dropped the birdie ball off yesterday. 

first impressions:

i expected the mat to be heavier. for the size, it’s a very light foam material. if not for the side and end bumpers, it wouldn’t have much substance to it at all. 

the surface is really interesting. you can see from the pictures that it’s probably the closest simulation you can get to a real green in a synthetic material. it has grain and has actual little “grass” nubs. 

the mat has to settle for a while but i couldn’t resist taking a few preliminary rolls. it rolls extremely true and feels like you’re hitting on a real green. 

i can’t speak to if the ramp actually adds the intended additional distance for each respective hole yet, but i can say that you’ve gotta hit the ball a good bit firmer to reach the 18’ hole than you do for the 12’ and 14‘, so early on the ramp seems to work as advertised. 

over the next few days i’ll roll a lot more balls on the mat (MLB playoffs and a putting green, what’s better?!) and try to come up with some sort of system for evaluating the efficacy of the mat. 

i know you all want pictures, so i guess it’s time to PuttUp or shut up:

here’s everything that comes in the box

and here’s the mat fully assembled

Assembly was easy without tools. Two hands needed for the bumper extrusions to spread the opening over the mat edge but adjustment laterally to align the corners was easy.

One cup centers the mat on the ramp and the other cups mount from underneath. The flags press together and if too loose glue is provided but unnecessary for my assembly. They would double as table ornaments if you're planning a golf themed party, just saying.  The cup liners fit tightly and tabs slip between the cup and the mat foam.

3 balls rolled straight on for a first experience and all 3 holed out. The roll was true and first impression is this is going to be a great testing evaluation and review!20201006_151127.jpeg20201006_151343.jpeg20201006_151421.jpeg20201006_151518.jpeg20201006_151723.jpeg20201006_152302.jpeg20201006_152341.jpeg20201006_152419.jpeg20201006_152428.jpeg20201006_152500.jpeg20201006_152519.jpeg20201006_152757.jpeg20201006_152854.jpeg20201006_153500.jpeg20201006_153557.jpeg

@Manimal26 @EasyPutter @txgolfjunkie @WaffleHouseTour @LeftyHawk

are any of you setting your mat up on carpet? mine is sitting on medium pile carpet in the basement and it appears to sit flat. there are no waves or breaks in it, but i’m wondering if a harder surface wouldn’t be more ideal. 

if it would make a big difference i could always pick up two more horse stall mats and lay them under the putting green. 

at 75lbs each they’d compress the carpet nicely and give a nice flat solid surface. i use them for the flooring in my garage gym.

I am limited with where I can put my mat, so realistically with it going from over hardwood floor to over carpet (my former putting surface) there is slight undulation not unlike what would be found on an outdoor green.

it’s the basement or bust for me. less because of space and more because my wife saying something about a divorce if there’s a giant putting green in the living room. i’m not sure though, i wasn’t really listening.

there don’t seem to be any issues on the carpet so far, so we’ll see how it goes.

I’ve had a BB for a couple of years now and have predominantly used it on top of carpet.  The only problem I have found is that it tends to inch itself in one direction everytime you step on it when it’s on carpet.   But it does work as intended on both carpet and hard floor.

I’ve had a BB for a couple of years now and have predominantly used it on top of carpet.  The only problem I have found is that it tends to inch itself in one direction everytime you step on it when it’s on carpet.   But it does work as intended on both carpet and hard floor.  

i’ve noticed that a little bit. that doesn’t bother me as long as the mat doesn’t buckle or pinch
