Home Putting Green Install

I attempting to upload a few videos so you can see how the green reacts. The vids are chip shots, 30 yard pitch shot, and a few putts. Again, this is so you can see the green, not an open invitation to critique my lack of lack of skill 😀
 

let’s see if this works...

Congratulations! That is amazing. Really enjoyed this thread. What I love most is the trampoline the kids negotiated! Great dad as well!

 

I'm curious what kind of maintenance is required for something like this?


limited maintenance beyond occasionally sweeping it with a soft bristle broom. Once a year you use a lawn roller to keep the speed up, and every 3-5 year adding a top coat of sand.

Easily one of the best threads I’ve seen on golfwrx in a while.  Thanks for this journey.

 

I have putting green in the backyard but it isn’t nearly as receptive on chips.  Great for putting.

 

Congrats and I’m sure you’ll get many years of enjoyment.

anyone know how these greens stand up to weather. Do many install these in places that get snow and ice in winter?

 

I had the same question - not sure its a complete answer but the Celebrity Greens website has local franchises/installers in places with pretty cold winters - IE upper midwest.

That is awesome.  I can’t believe how responsive it is on chips.  Refresh my  memory what is the company that installed this?

 

The company I used is named Celebrity Greens. I'm located in AZ and there are several companies that build greens. I was quoted prices from $6-$12 per square foot, and Celebrity was the most expensive. However, I liked their product, and now with my green done, I'm glad I chose them.

Great post to document the process and finished product of a very nice putting green.  Plus you got a great deal at $12/sq. ft.! I'm in the late stages of approving an install for a 1500 sq ft synthetic putting green in the Pacific Northwest with a frequent competitor to Celebrity Greens. Pricing is quite a bit higher at $20-30/sq. ft., probably due to extra base required for better irrigation with all the wetness and shade. I can't get much of anything to grow in a section of my yard, but still debating about whether to install plain old synthetic grass for more usage/aesthetics or a putting green that could potentially not appeal to future homebuyers when we decide to sell our place in a few years.  

 

I agree with OP comments that its just a very nice "thing" or another feature about the house that took years to achieve. Now that a bit of time has passed since the install, do you find yourself still using it frequently? Any other thoughts on doing it over again?

This is incredible, love the setup.

 

How does walking on it barefoot feel? Do you end up with sand all over you, or is it sunk down deep enough not to notice?

 

Great question. I've walked across it several times and the feeling never crossed my mind. As such, I suppose it feels pretty natural.

 

The sand on the green is very compact, and I haven't had any mess. Also, I have six kids and four dogs running across it all day long with wet feet from the pool and no mess to speak of.

Looks awesome.  I have been debating whether to do something like this or just put in real grass and hire someone to maintain it.

 

Before thinking grass, try to find a high end putting green to practice on. The roll is very nice and speed wise my green stacks up against my local courses very well. The fact that I can step outside and never need to worry about maintenance is a god send too.
