How to Install an Indoor Putting Green

If you would like to become a professional golfer sometime in the future, you would have to make sure that you get quite a lot of practice today. But even if you would like to go to a golf course every single day to do so, you would not be able to. Do not despair though; there is still a way for you to be able to practice—and you would be able to do this in the comfort of your own home. Believe it or not, there is such a thing called indoor putting greens (some of them maybe just carpets, but they would still be able to help you practice). By installing indoor putting greens, you would be able to experience playing golf—no matter the occasion, no matter the weather.

Before you go out and buy that artificial putting surface of yours, measure first the area where you would like to place your greens. Once you have done that, purchase a green carpet (one that resembles grass the most) or an artificial putting green, and two plywood boards. Make sure that these are roughly the same size and dimension of the area you have measured. Also, get yourself a couple of 2’x4’ wood pieces (again, the same width and length of the area considered), box cutters or scissors, nails, a staple gun, a plastic cup, and a hammer.

Once you have gathered all your needed materials, you can start by securing the carpet or the artificial putting green on the board. Do this using your staple gun. You now have a base. Using your cup, trace the rim, creating a hole on your putting green. With your box cutter, cut out this hole. Use a small saw so as to cut the same hole through the plywood. Glue the cup to the hole, holding it in place for a couple of minutes so that it would hold quite securely. Nail the 2’x4’ wood pieces to the bottom of the green. This would serve as a foundation and a frame. After doing this, you can now attach the second plywood to the frame’s bottom. You can now test your putting green to see if everything has been installed quite perfectly.
