[Photo] - House's front yard is a putting green
TheSandTrap.com Top Picks
I have two "greens" behind my house. Mowed short but not puttable short (don't have a greens mower).
One starts at 30 yards and ends at 50 yards with two white poles for targets. The other is at 100 yards to the center and is about 12 yards by 15 yards. Had a cup and flag in that one but the flag deteriorated and I took it to the barn (intending to put a new flag on it) but neglected to put it back for quite a while. When I finally went to put it back I couldn't find the cup and never did find it.
Maybe a mole helped fill it with dirt. I don't think natural erosion and grass clippings could have filled it so well that I couldn't find it.
We have closest to the pin contests to the two poles on the closest green and I hit 100 balls at the 100 yard green and see how many I can get on the green out of 100. My record is 97 a couple of years ago. Not even in that neighborhood now and I am lucky to get more than half on. Part of it is a lack of concentration and part of it is a lack of skill.
