Looking at setting up a putting green in my basement this year... Does anyone have any experience with "proputt systems" turf? It's a branch of east coast turf, which supplies very nice turf matt material to ranges and clubs...
There's a bunch of options out there, from BirdieBall styrofoam
to a $12,000 "dream green"
Some are low-profile, where you use impact-absorbing cup pins to slow the ball down,
And others are built up platforms that allow the ball to actually "fall down" into the cup
I'm looking at the ProPutt system, because you can easily add an extra 2 or 4 feet in length, it uses a platform, and the actual turf quality is highly reviewed. But, it's quite pricey, and I'm not sure the extra money is justified. IMO, the two platform systems seem the most realistic... But, I'm curious if any sandtrappers have firsthand experience with it.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
