  • Has Anyone Built a REAL Green At Home

    Has anyone here ever tried to build an actual real grass putting surface on their home property? Iíve always wanted exactly how difficult it is!

    I haven't, but I've watched Randy from Fried Eggs Golf on YouTube do it and then maintain it. Seems like a ton of work. But if you have the space like they do, them I'm sure it would be awesome to have.

      A chipping green wouldn't be all that hard in theory. If you want a putting green that plays well building is probably easier then maintaining am imagine a push mower that can cut greens might cost a big chunk of money. Other then that the building is mostly the same as an artificial one and there are a few guys here who have done that.

          Considering a new mower for greens would run $10k+ I doubt you will find very many people that have done this. Heck decent used ones run almost $2k. Would be really cool even though I canít keep my normal grass green :)

            I've never seen one, but obviously it's not easy.

            I'll never understand the allure though, I can putt for about 20 minutes before I get bored.

                  I would absolutely tip my cap to anyone so ambitious!

                  There truly is nothing like the real thing. But considering the necessary effort for real, and the fact that artificial still putts very well, I'm extremely happy with my phony green. [emoji4]

                    I am building a tee box that I hope someday might be puttable. For now it is going to be a chipping area and a tee box for my practice net. I will sand and level it over time and experiment with cutting it low. Greens mowers can be had for under $1000 if you wait for the right deal. I am going to cut it like rough at first and lower it to fairway height after the sod takes hold.

                    I started by killing a 20 X 20 area by covering it in plastic for two weeks.

                    I then scalped the dead grass off with a weedeater.

                    I filled it with sand and leveled it. I am getting my sod Monday.

                              Nice Badolds!

                              At my old house I had a really crappy chipping green. It just consisted of me killing off a 30ft circle of grass and planting bent grass after I got all the dead out of there. I rolled it good and picked out all the rocks

                              I stuck a flag in the middle of it. I used a weed eater to cut it as I could cut it tight without torching it. Spent countless hours with the kids out there chipping on it and itís probably why my middle son has such a great short game. For a long time Google Earth showed it but they recently updated the area and the new owner didnít keep it, which is strange since heís a golfer too. Thought it was pretty funny that from space you could tell a golfer lived there.

                              Total cost was about 8 hours of labor and a couple hundred bucks. Took about 20 minutes twice a week to cut with the weed eater.

                              It wasnt anything special but it was fun and it was better than nothing.
