Practice Putting Anywhere
Lack of Accessibility? No problem…you can still own your “Dream Putting Green”
Nearly 15 years ago, I was practicing putting on the concrete floor of my garage and came to the brilliant conclusion that this had to be one of the worst ways to practice putting ever. No wonder I stink! So what was my option? I jumped on the phone and called a local synthetic turf putting green installer whose ad I had seen at the local driving range.
They pulled up in their fancy graphic covered van, went to my backyard, and recommended I cut down all my trees because they needed to pour a concrete slab in my yard. I didn’t want a bunch of concrete; I wanted a natural, lush environment. Needless to say, it was a short sales call.
That’s it? These were my options? There had to be a better way for those of us who wanted our own putting green but had poor accessibility. Location is not an issue with Tour Links. Whether your installation site is a
- Heavily wooded yard
- Condominium porch
- Spare room
it should never be a road block to great putting practice.
What is investing in your game worth?
If it wasn’t bad enough that my yard would have looked as though it had been hit by a defoliant, the cost to build a synthetic turf putting green was way out of my league. I loved golf but wasn’t ready to mortgage my house to shave off a few strokes.
After some research, I realized that I wasn’t the only one with the “lack of accessibility” dilemma coupled with the high cost of correcting what many installers in the day saw as a problem. I didn’t look at this as a problem, but as an opportunity.
How could a putting green with country club quality roll be built virtually anywhere, any size and at a price point that the average golfer could afford?
What happens when I move and the next buyer insist I demo this unsightly slab of concrete and synthetic grass because they are “tennis people.” This was the “ah ha moment” for what I now call interlocking base panels.
When you understand the antiquated methodology of constructing a synthetic putting green, you will understand just why lack of accessibility is such an issue. If you cannot get heavy equipment in to a location, have no way of carrying tons of material to a top floor of a condo or have zoning or structural load requirements, you now are a casualty of accessibility. Now that the Tour Links putting green system is the most popular putting green system in the world, you will never be limited by your environment again.
Invest in Your Short Game
Here are some facts:
- Finding the time to practicing putting is often difficult, but you must practice to improve!
- Most golfers never break 100 due to poor putting.
- The average golfer will use his putter almost twice as often as any club in the bag.
- Did I mention practicing putting can be boring especially when your best option is putting to any empty glass in the living room?
When you make the investment in a putting green, you certainly want to know you can take it with you when you move. I remember reading an interview with a famous Hollywood action hero who was moving from the east coast back to the west coast, and when asked what he would miss most, his answer was his putting green! That is when it all made sense to me. Only build or own a putting green that is portable or at least provide and opportunity to be able to sell it online when you’re ready to upgrade to a more challenging unit.
With the Tour Links putting green system, you never lose your investment. Set it up for a day or install it for a lifetime. The patented interlocking panels bring to golfers a new level of quality and purity of ball roll while breaking down frustrating installation barriers. From pre-packed 9 ft. stroke-saving training greens to a 2,000 sq. ft. backyard putting oasis, Tour Links is the smart choice for any location and any budget.
Your game will thank you, your family will thank you and your trees will thank you!
