Do you love golf and trying to find a way to practice your short game in your home? Simply convert one of the rooms in your house into a putting green. Golf simulators can analyze data about your shot, but they do not give much for practicing your short game. An indoor putting green allows you to practice no matter the weather in Vancouver or your time restrictions. Keep going to learn more about converting a room in your home into a putting green.



First, you’ll want to judge the room you want to use. It should be a flat, open area with enough room for at least a putting mat and a cup. It is a good idea to not use rooms with a lot of traffic or heavy furniture that can get in the way of your golf practice. Then you’ll have to decide if you just want to add a putting mat to the room or replace the whole area with artificial turf.



Putting mats are a great and easy way to add golf to a space in your house. An all-assembled putting green mat lets you easily roll out, place cups in the holes and start to putt in mere seconds. This is why it’s easy to install and enjoy any place. Putting mats are a fantastic choice for back porch play, barbecues, tailgating, mancaves, she-sheds, and more. Because they are portable, putting mats allow you to roll it up and move it somewhere else if you aren’t happy with its placement or if you just want it placed somewhere else in your house or take it to a party.



One popular use for putting greens is to make a customized putting green in an extra room in your home. These greens can be built to fit any room, regardless of size or shape, so you can create a green that is tailormade for your space. Custom indoor greens are ideal for Vancouver homeowners who are interested in adding some luxury to their house. They are also for commercial properties interested in offering a unique experience for their customers.
