Putting Green

A home putting green is more accessible than you might think. It doesn’t require much space, and can be customized with features and practice elements to help your golf game. But, it can also be created as a versatile space for kids to play and is a great focal point for entertaining. There are several ways you can customize your own personal putting green. A favorite sports team, the family crest, a picture, or anything else you can imagine can be put on the flags and on the grass, itself. Of course, we recommend you go with an Approved Home Pro artificial turf provider.
