Indoor Putting Green

7 posts in this topic

I have decided to turn our loft into a indoor putting green and I am seeking some advice about of couple of things from people that have some knowledge in this sort of thing.

Here is my room dimensions/layout.

At the minute the loft is just plain floor boards, so I have a open canvas. I was thinking about buying outdoor carpet and laying it straight over the top and cutting holes straight into the floor boards, has anyone tried this before??

Is outdoor carpet ok for indoor putting surface??

The outdoor carpet will work. It's available in several pile styles & colors. The one that imitates grass (astroturf) would be a good choice. Get the cut pile one in a decent quality. Most stores stock the base grade (which is junk) - ask to see samples for the better products.

They all made in a 6' & 12' width, so you'll be able to do your job in one piece.

Be sure to seal the raw edge (where you cut thru the carpet to make the hole) with seaming adhesive, so it does not fray.

If you're gluing it down, use a pressure sensitive adhesive.

If you mean padding, no.

If you're referring to 1/4" plywood, only if the existing subfloor can not be prepped to make smooth/flat enough.

What would you do for slope?

Yeah. It's pointless if it's just a flat mat. May as well just have a single hole. Read my article on the main site. If you're gonna do it do it right. Use SynLawn turf instead of the Wittek turf. Then you can do breaks easily too.

I actually ment the padding. The floor boards underneath will have slope in them as there are not flat. I will get a photo see, if you can give me any advice on them.

    • Wrapping up the front nine, JS bogied three of the last four holes to finish +10. For Nos. 6, 7 and 9, he put two tee shots into deep right rough, and one into a fairway bunker. He failed to reach the green on any of these three approaches.
    • Have you ever been fitted for a driver? Check around and see if there's a driver that will work for you. If you get a new driver (not always 2017, but just not a used one), often the fitting is free. What problem do you have with driver? I know a couple of golfers who use 3W for driver, and off the fairway. But, most people lose out on distance by using only 3W. A 3H and 4H might help out as bridge clubs. You may have to test a few hybrids before you find a model that works for you. Or, you might find high-lofted fairway woods (5W, 7W) work better. You just need to test things out and see what works. Also consider taking a tune-up lesson to see if you have any swing wobbles you can cure before you get new clubs.
    • foot-note. The assembled shaft is 43 1/2 inches. This is a little short for a driver which adds to my conclusion that a previous owner had tipped the shaft and the piece was somehow left inside and held there by friction until I tapped it loose during my re-shaft. Also, the fact that it was on an adjustable driver, they probably had to cut it short to accommodate the hosel adapter.   Sorry, if I tend to answer my own questions, but it does not hurt to seek out confirmations.     "golf club forensics". 
    • The new shaft was from an adjustable Tour Edge XCG-7 (Matrix White Tie-Stiff). I did a little research and I am fairly certain it was somehow left in the shaft (maybe on purpose just to piss somebody off -it was not new) when they originally tipped it. There is normally quite a bit of the parallel tip to cut from and the fact that it was exactly 1.75 inches long, leads me to believe that it is the piece cut off. I am surprized it didn't come loose before I switched shafts. I am not positive mind you, but after looking at photos of tip trimming, that's exactly what it looks.  Heck, for all I know, it may even have been trapped inside the shaft  and only came loose after numerous changes in the (so-called) loft adjustment.   Anyway, no biggie, I am just a curious sort and obsessive tinkerer.    Thanks, Shorty.
