I’ve got my very own backyard golf course and it couldn’t be more fun.
My Backyard course consists of 3 Tee Mats and a synthetic putting green.
We hit Birdieballs (limited flight golf practice balls) from the Tee Off Mat and then place a real golf ball and play it in from there.
My backyard golf green measures 20×30 and has 4 cups. We move the flag position clockwise after each hole, so the combination of 3 golf mats and 4 cups means that we never play the same hole twice.
It’s has helped my golf game – specifically my short game. If you miss the green on your tee shot you typically have a 1 to 5 yard chip to the green. So you need to develop very soft hands to get up-and-down and save par.
