Bob Hope once said, “If you watch a game, it's fun. If you play it, it's recreation. If you work at it, it's golf.” Only the most serious players know that the game of golf is an investment in oneself, whether it’s for the social outlet or the exercise. The great thing about golf is that it’s always in season, and the time is always right for getting in a little putting practice, especially when you own a home putting green. (Heavenly Greens can help you with that issue, but more about that later.)
Whether you live in a warm area where there are golf courses open year-round, or you live in a region that has a limited season, a home putting green can be a convenience worth adding to your property. One option is installing artificial turf and creating a mini putting green or golf course in your own backyard or patio. Imagine waking up each morning and getting in some practice before heading for the challenge of an award-winning course? You can seriously step up your golf game this way.
On the PGA’s website, Joe Beck observes, “We all should be good putters. Practicing can be at home on the carpet, at the office between telephone calls, after school during study breaks and, of course, on the putting green.” Of course, you get more realistic play when you practice on a home putting green instead of at home on the carpet, but every little bit helps. It’s relatively easy and cost-effective to install a home putting green. Just select an area that's comfortable and within a short distance from your home. The backyard or a patio area can be a perfect spot for this purpose. If you live in an urban area, you may decide to install a home putting green in an indoor ball court area, a garage, or the rooftop. There are many sizes and styles of putting greens that are created using artificial turf and netting. Sophisticated video equipment can monitor your swing and speed to help you perfect your putting. You can even install monitors that create a virtual reality experience that will transport you from the city to any professional golf course around the world.
Putting greens are long-lasting and improve the value of your home or office. You can use this as your own personal space for entertaining friends, family, and even clients. Blow off some steam whenever the mood strikes. Combine your putting green with a baseball pitching area for the kids. Artificial turf looks great and comes in a wide variety of styles, sizes, and purposes. It’s easy to care nature makes it simple to keep clean and beautiful for many years. Just a simple vacuum once in a while is all it needs.
