    Home Practice Area /pics

    I have noticed a few people on here talk about hitting balls at the house or practicing other parts of the game at home. Lets see what your setup is and how you build it. Please include some pictures.

    Just picture a big area rug, with an impact bag and a big mirror to look in. That's how I practice at home. Also my upstairs carpet rolls pretty good for puttin!

    No pictures needed here.
    Just imagine a small, fenced in backyard with a small, empty flowerpot sitting in the middle, surrounded by 20 or so plastic whiffle ball style practice golf balls and that's me....

    I wanted to bump this to get some pictures in here. I know some of you guys practice at the house. Show us what your setup is, in or outdoors.

    I live two blocks from my local muni. It rarely has more than 3 groups playing on it, so that entire course is my 'backyard' practice area. I could post picks, but its nothing special.

    Grant, next time I go by my buddies house I will snap some pictures for you. He lives in a golfing community and the house he is in was previously lived in by the course pro. His side-yard is a large artificial putting green w/ undulation for breaks, surrounded by a bigger area with thicker turf that you can chip on to the green with.

    I built a net for my yard(can also be used inside), with Golf impact netting and pvc pipes.

    I used 2 inch pvc pipes but you could probably get away with 1-1/2". I got the idea from a video on youtube.

    Here is the link

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D1fIByOjBMA

    Here is the pic of my net. It is actually an old pic. I changed the string for some clips. It allows me to remove the tops ones and makes the net portable. I'll see if I can take another pic of the new net along with the mat and teego.

    Not sure if this is where this video should go but...Raining here in Michigan today. Cleaning out the golf area and having a few beers.
    Thought I would throw up a video while I had things kind of neat.
    Video is rough so bare with me.. I am not an AV guy or an on camera personality...
    LOL.. but it gave me something to do.

    With the help of my buddy who owns a putting green company, I put a 15'x15' piece of putting turf in my mancave. It allows me to practice a lot, it's not unusual for me to be down there hitting putts, watching sports, and drinking an IPA out of the kegerator 6+ hours a week.
