There are several different factors that go into the quality of a putting green. Players can easily be discouraged by a lack of consistency in a green. If your green is not consistent in uniformity, smoothness and firmness, it is likely not up to par.

Consistency

Consistency is key when it comes to putting greens. In all aspects, the consistency of the green will indicate the success of your golf course as a whole.

The way a ball putts needs to be uniform on all putting greens on your course. The smoothness and firmness should also remain consistent throughout the course. Players will expect the entirety of the course to putt like the first hole. If that does not happen, then you might lose a few customers in the long run.

Controlling the Grain

If your putting green is not mowed close enough, players will notice a significant difference in the roll of the ball depending on if they are putting with or against the grain. This can also be a problem if the green is not mowed in opposite directions throughout the week.
