How to build a synthetic putting green

In the photos below you can see a brilliant example of how to build a synthetic putting green.

This is one of our DIY synthetic golf greens and is a perfect example of using a dead space at your property:

  • Turn a previously ugly or unused space into something special
  • Enhance your property
  • Give yourself a place where you can practise your golf game
  • Build an entertainment area
  • And it’s even something the wife will love!

It’s a perfect win-win situation. And because it’s DIY, you can save yourself 1000’s over a full install. In this case, the home owner enjoyed getting some mates over and building his golf green.

Finally finished today. Love the green my son and I have spent hours on it already. Thank you for all your help during the process. With the guide making things heaps easier. Was a good excuse to get some mates around and have a beer or two as well.

And this is what our golf greens and business is all about – bringing family and friends together to play golf. Check out the pics below on how to build a synthetic putting green

The starting point for this synthetic putting green
Getting the baseworks underway. Note the timber border (a great idea) and the use of a tractor (an even better idea)
Adding the base material. This is a crucial step that can’t be rushed. Be sure to compact the crusher dust sufficiently.
See how smooth this base is? Well that’s perfect. You can also see the cups sticking out a little bit too. That’s also ideal.
The grass is down. You can see why the wooden border was such a great idea – gives you place to bolster the grass.

So that’s how to build a synthetic putting green in a nutshell. This DIY project saves quite a few dollars over a full install and if you follow our comprehensive DIY guide you won’t have too many issues.

Some things to keep in mind:

  • Keep the design simple (like the one above)
  • Forget about crazy undulations unless you have a really big area to work with
  • Get some help from a mate (or two) who has a Bobcat or Dingo or tractor (they will become your best friend)
  • Don’t rush the baseworks. They really are key
  • And perhaps, most importantly, get some quality synthetic golf grass from us 🙂
