“I have a tip that can take five strokes off anyone’s golf game. It’s called an eraser.”
– Arnold Palmer, aka “The King” – Professional American Golfer
There is no other sport that has such wide acclaim and passion, yet inspires so much frustration and hopelessness than golf. How many times have you made a trip to the local golf store to replace a perfectly fine putter that ended up at the bottom of a water hazard or wrapped around a nearby tree?
Perhaps the most difficult and demanding aspect of golf is missing the hole by only a bit. Malcolm Gladwell, a famous American author put forward a theory that it takes 10, 000 hours of practice to achieve mastery at any particular skill. Golfers know this to be true for every aspect of the game, but none more so than putting. Regardless of how many strokes it takes you to get to the green, a good hole can turn into a disaster if you short game is off.
Practicing your skills on good turf
Getting out to the driving range or the golf course every day is impossible. When you think about it, the time and money spent driving back and forth to your local golf course can be quite a lot. The best solution is having the ability to practice at home. This is why having a putting green in your backyard is such a brilliant idea for dedicated golfers. It gives you the opportunity to work on your game every single day, so that on the golf course you’ll shine.
The key to a practice putting green obviously is getting the surface just right. Putting greens are meticulously maintained by professional ground crews for the perfect speed and surface. To truly master your putting stroke, you must have a level surface with a good speed with ample space for different lies. It’s normally far beyond the capabilities of an average homeowner to achieve the same result without significant financial and time investments. Herein lies the problem with people trying to get a putting green in their backyard without taking out a second mortgage.
The best solution is to use artificial grass as the surface. When most people think of an artificial putting green, they think of a rollout green with hard plastic grass that even your pets avoid. The reality is that modern synthetic materials are virtually indistinguishable from natural surfaces. Artificial turf are crafted down to each synthetic grass blade of multiple varieties, including synthetic grasses the perfectly emulate a putting surface.
The great news is that artificial grass is not only very affordable on a modest budget, but the maintenance required is minimal. You can have a perfect practice green in your home that looks like it’s maintained by PGA-level groundskeepers.
