Show Us Your Golf Cave/Simulator/Putting Green!


#22

Here are two walls of my golf room. Basically built a wall and then laid it on the ground and covered it in turf.


#23

Love my 4x10 Birdieball putting green.


#24

Do you guys want another friend? :smile:

Any clue as to the equipment? Projector, tracker, etc.


#25

Nice. Very cool. Is that a brush for your putting green? Or a putter-path trainer?


#26

It’s a putting arc training tool.


#27

I don’t know all the specifics but it’s a SkyTrack launch monitor which a few people have been discussing here already… works perfectly just slightly delayed - not a biggie though, has a projector and it’s also connected through his apple tv so we can watch PGA Tour Live as well


#28

Very cool - what’s with the bills hanging on the wall out of curiosity?


#29

Signed dollar bills by Tawny Ray - @ClubProGuy’s girl. A must-have for any connoisseur.


#30

Every time I golf with a couple buddies we play for one dollar, no strokes, match play. Those are the scalps of those victims.


#31

I’m interested in the Birdie Ball. Is this something that can be rolled up and stored when not in use? I don’t think my wife would love having a 10 foot putting green in the living room. We live in an apartment, so a basement isn’t an option.


#32

Yep. Very easy to move around.


#33

I have a skytrak and it’s great for the price. We hit it in our warehouse now just into a tarp hanging from the ceiling but are building a more serious bay currently in another barn that I plan on also moving my office into. I will chronicle the build for everyone to see. We are just working on some structural issues right now moving lights, and adding insulation. We are also building a 12x12 putting green in there that will be on skids and we can move it around from place to place. It will be very heavy but I have equipment to lift it and move it around with ease. The inside height of the bay will be 14’ and the width is 14’ also.


#34

Yes! Please post photos. Sounds awesome.


#35

What type of turf/carpet did your dad use? Do you know where he purchased? I’m attempting to make a platform putting green and can’t find a good solution for the carpeting. I want it to be fast.

Thanks!

If you are building your own frame, I have HEARD that this works really well: https://www.ebay.com/itm/54-x-120-Camry-Putting-Green-Carpet-rec-by-PGA-Tour-Pros-Read-Desc/263392339407?hash=item3d536825cf:g:RFAAAOSwBO1ZzRJv

I think the type of material that is on my putting green is from SYNLawn - most states have multiple dealers and they will sell to you. I would suggest going to a local dealer/installer and trying them out as they have a couple of different grades (and I can’t remember which type was used on mine). Here is the website: https://www.synlawn.com/artificial-grass-products/golf-putting-green-products/

Hope this helps!


#37

Lay a BirdieBall mat over your platform. Would roll fast and way more true then grainy carpet/artificial turf.


#38

@scuff Awesome feedback. Thanks! I’ll post a pic when I finish… If it turns out ok.


#39

It’s not that complicated, find the flatest spot on a given green roll 3 balls 1 direction and then 3 balls back the other direction and take the average of all of them. The stimp meter is I think about 36" long and has a grove cut out at 1 end so that the ball can be lifted slowly and when it gets to a certain height the ball rolls out of the grove and down the meter onto the green, so it gives it a consistent release each time.

This is my old man’s backyard setup. Green Links Inc in Houston did the install http://greenlinksinc.com

He needs an NLU shagbag in a bad way.

WOW. That is the biggest one I have seen outside of a celebrity/Tour player. If my dad had that, I would be a 30-something-year-old man living with his parents. LOL.
