So you’ve made the wise decision to invest in a personal putting green. Not only will you save money on visits to the golf course, but you’ll also ensure that you can get the leg up on your golf buddies by practicing as often as you want. Still, before you get your custom artificial turf installed, there are plenty of options and ideas to consider. Here are some of the things you should think about as you start planning your short-game oasis.

Anywhere You Like

FieldTurf Landscape’s artificial turf is not only incredibly realistic, but it’s also highly adaptable. That means you can have it installed just about anywhere you see fit. Want to tuck it away in your backyard by the grill? Or would you prefer to be the talk of the neighborhood with a putting green out front? Wherever there’s land, our experts can work with you to install a realistic putting green to fit the space. It’s really up to you. 

Shapes and Curves

The choices don’t end there. We can create elevations by raising the surface of the golf green above the existing hardscape, allowing multiple contours and undulations. We can also install steps around various portions of the green. The steps are made of treated lumber, and customized for each project. To make your green similar to the TPC Courses played on the PGA Tour, we can add custom moguls (also known as “mounds” or “berms”). And to really prove we’ve got this down to a tee, we can create a tee box that will allow you to play shots from a variety of distances.

Accessories Galore

The customizable options don’t end there. FieldTurf’s proprietary installation process includes one aluminum cup and one flag per 100 square feet, meaning you could build a nice little course if you have the space. We’ve also mastered a tightly infilled cup edge with a realistic aluminum base. It looks and sounds like the real thing — all you’ve got to do is putt the ball into the hole. And you can make practice even more challenging by adding a bunker to your turf, complete with white sand. Want to practice after dark? We can even include unique custom lighting on your green

Maximum Drainage

You won’t just be sinking balls in your putting green. The artificial turf will also come with contours and drainage holes that encourage maximum drainage. The backing of your home putting green is solid, but there are drainage holes meaning water will drain through the putting surface. That means you’ll be able to practice more often with less time spent on maintenance.

Why FieldTurf

There are plenty of other companies that can install some form of putting green in your backyard, but none quite like FieldTurf. There’s a reason Arnold Palmer’s golf course design company chose us for their top courses and practice areas. Our turf is infilled with refined sand that is less prone to clumping, so it won’t harden like the turf you find on a minigolf course. With FieldTurf, you’re not just getting a decorative backyard putting green. You’re investing in a functional, realistic home golf practice surface that will stay useful for 10 to 15 years. That’s a lot of time to practice your short stroke. To find out more, book a consultation with one of our experts.
