Artificial putting greens bring your short game home.


Considering an Artificial Putting Green?

Through artificial putting greens, the world of golf is finding its way into back yards all across the nation. Many homes are now considering installing private putting greens, but there are other uses that people are finding for artificial turf.

Besides creating the best artificial putting green possible, people are creating bocce ball and croquet courts alongside their putting greens. This is an excellent way to create a space the whole family can use. It also makes a great reason to invite friends over for fun game time.

If you think outside of the green, you can easily find a way to include a rough. The edge around your putting green can actually be shaped to allow you to work on your chip shots. This is mostly achieved using a 1 3/4 inch pile artificial turf along the edges of the putting green. You can even install a Tee section by using a 2 inch long pile.

Artificial turf is not just used to enhance your putting game; it can dramatically be used to improve your entire game of golf. If your back yard is large enough, you can install your own mini-game arena to include bocce ball and crochet.
