How to Build A Custom Putting Green in 5 Steps

More golfers are realizing the benefits to their short game by adding a custom putting green to their home or office.

Our SYNLawn greens can be custom shaped to conform with your space. Add a rough and chipping area nearby to practice your green approach, since 80% of shots lost to par are inside 125 yards.

3 Styles of Custom Putting Greens

1) Portable – Greenmaker

These greens are custom shaped, with molded undulations, fringe, and snap-fit together panels. The panels make relocation simple. Perfect for the golfers who don’t want a long-term space commitment. Ideal for transporting to tailgates.

2) In-Ground Putting Green

For the serious golfer, these can be shaped as needed with rolling undulations, sand-traps and rough with multiple cups for directional putting practice.

3) Portable Putting Green Mat

The same professional turf, without the panels. This is simply a section of turf formed to your custom shape, which can be rolled up for storage or transportation. Objects, such as wood platforms, or pillows, can be added underneath to increase the difficultly level.

Now let’s learn the 5 Steps to Building a Portable Custom Putting Green

1) Select your golf turf

Be sure to order a little extra turf, to allow for trimming / waste. For example, if you’d like a green that measures 13′ x 10′, you would order a roll of turf at 15′ x 10′.

All rolls come standard in 15’ width, but can ordered to any length.

SYNLawn Precision Putt is the finest artificial putting surface on the planet. The Stimp (without infill) consistently measures between 9.5 – 10.5, in BOTH directions.

2) Shape it up

Unroll the turf, and flip over. Use a garden hose to form the pattern you prefer. Get creative! Trace the hose with a pen or marker.

3) Cut into shape

Use a high-quality carpet cutting blade and follow the pattern. This results in a perfect cut.

Tip: To practice using the blade & get comfortable with curves, use a section of turf outside your putting green area.  The key to cutting a smooth arc is confidence. Think ahead to where your blade needs to go next. If you do make a mistake, it is easier to trim later with your blade or sharp shears.

4) Fringe / apron / collar

Longer-blade turf, such as SYNLawn Bermuda ,is perfect for creating a fringe. Lay-out the fringe upside-down, and trace the shape of the green on the back of the fringe. Proceed to cut the fringe. The fringe sections can be attached with glue, seaming fabric, or double-sided tape. Using tape results in a less permanent installation.

5) Cups / Targets

For those who want cups in a fixed location, proceed to cut your holes. Otherwise, acquire some above-ground targets, as shown in the picture below, for target practice.

Most above-ground portable putting green mats won’t have enough depth to install a real cup. That means you will need to install materials underneath to raise the cup area, so above-ground cups and targets work best for this application.
