Build Your Own Practice Green

Build Your Own Practice Green

Feb 22, 2017

I think we can all agree that we don’t spend as much time practicing our putting as we should. People spend hours working on their swing; lessons, driving range, but then we only spend 3-5 minutes on the practice green before a round.

Putting takes practice and if your going to invest in your game the greatest return will come from putting and chipping practice.

Speaking of investment, it is an investment to build your own backyard practice area. If you’re going to make this investment, make sure it is one that will pay dividends for years to come. You don’t want to invest in something that will only require more investment in a couple years.

The backyard practice greens we build here at East Coast Synthetic Turf are built to last. We use the highest quality materials and we put considerable effort in, to be absolutely sure your getting exactly what you want.  A happy customer is our primary concern, it always has been and it always will be.

The quickest and most sustainable way to lower scores is consistent practice. Putting is unique in the fact that there is no particular athletic ability required to get good, very good in fact. You don’t need to be flexible or strong, you simply need to be able to practice your putting stroke consistently.

In order to achieve these consistent practice sessions most people will need to spend countless hours at the course. Well, most of us don’t have this kind of time and even if we did we would prefer to be at home spending time with the family. This is where a backyard practice area comes in pretty handy.

If you’re considering building your own putting green at your home you will want to be sure you do your research and you’ll want to be sure you’re getting all the features, quality and workmanship this type of investment requires.


While a simple practice putting green of any size will give you the ability to consistently work on your stroke, there are a few simple add-ons that are inexpensive and very valuable to improving your overall short game.

Chipping areas are inexpensive and they will round out any practice area. The chipping turf we use at East Coast Synthetic Turf is high quality, commercial grade driving range material. We began using this specialized turf a few months ago and the reviews are outstanding. From green-side chipping areas to 40, 60 or even 90 yard tee boxes, you’ll be amazed at the valuable practice you will get.

Sand traps are a feature which have been very popular recently. Obviously you want to make sure you have enough room for a trap but they are a beautiful feature which not only amazes your friends but lowers your handicap as well.

No feature and no level of investment will be worth it, if the materials you are using don’t function properly and don’t provide realistic practice. Our TourPutt Ultimate Putting Turf is warrantied for 10 years, and provides smooth rolling putts that is unparalleled in the synthetic turf industry.

This turf is not only durable but it is highly functional. You can launch shots form 100 yards or hit little chip shots and this turf reacts  just like the real thing. This is why Ping, Titleist, Puma Golf, Ryan Moore, Ricky Barnes, Colin Montgomerie and Sports Illustrated all have chosen TourPutt Ultimate as their turf of choice.

Putts roll smoothly in every direction, the turf maintains consistency in any weather situation and it does all this without requiring any annual maintenance. Our competitors use sand filled turf, sand filled is messy, it diminishes consistency and it needs to be re-dressed each and every year.

Even with superior materials, if the job is not being done correctly, you’ll have a bad experience. We’ve been building putting greens and ONLY putting greens for nearly 10 years. We’re not doing lawn clean-ups on Monday and installing a putting green on Wednesday.

We specialize in Putting Greens and Artificial Lawns.

We show up on time and we don’t leave until the job is done to your liking. This is a simple business model yet one that is somehow overlooked by some?

Further, we warranty not only the turf but the base. The base is the key to the overall quality and performance of your practice area. A base that doesn’t drain correctly or washes out in a year, won’t be a fun thing to deal with.

If you’re looking to build your own putting green and you’re in the North Carolina or South Carolina area, we would appreciate the opportunity to earn your business and take a small part in making your game a lot better!

We have one simple goal, we want to turn your backyard into a Golfer’s Paradise!
