Owning a backyard putting green is a dream come true for pro golfers and amateurs alike, but how do you get started with such an epic project? It’s easy to turn artificial turf in Dallas into exciting putting greens with an expert installation team; however, the final design is still up to you.

Kick start your backyard putting green project by asking yourself the following questions:

What Type of Golfer Are You?

Are you a leisure golfer or an avid golfer? The type of golfer you are has a huge impact on your final putting green design. For leisure golfers, green may be a social space to share the game with friends and family. While serious golfers would want a golf green that’s designed specifically to improve their game.

However, note that synthetic turf in Dallas is flexible enough to enjoy both. Although knowing what you want out of your golf green will give the design process a clearer direction.

What is the logistic of your space?

Though turf is incredibly versatile, you can make the most of it by being realistic about the potential of your space. How much space do you have for a green? How big is your yard? A multi-hole course may not be feasible for a smaller lawn.

Another issue for logistics is safety. If your yard is near your garage, windows or your children’s play space, you may need to pick out a different part of your property for your backyard.

What features would you like for your putting green?

Whether you’re using the green to sharpen your short game or just to play with friends, you still want it to pose a challenge to keep things interesting. Below are just a few of the elements that you can incorporate in your backyard:

  • Various angles and breaks

  • Chipping areas

  • Tee boxes

  • Sand traps

  • Speed

  • Slope

What ground level would you prefer?

Would you like a hilly terrain that replicates the conditions on a commercial golf course? Perhaps you prefer playing on a sleek and flat surface. Depending on how big your yard is, you can even have both. The ground levels of your backyard are an essential factor in its design as well as the features you can add to your green.
