Improve Your Golf Game with a Backyard Putting Green

A backyard putting green can be a great way to improve your game, but not all are created equal. A poorly maintained backyard putting green will only frustrate you more while playing, so it is important to find one with the right features for you. Delaturf can help you create a backyard putting green that requires no maintenance and helps you improve your game!

How to Improve Your Putting

The art of putting is a difficult one, and many golfers struggle to get the ball in motion. We've compiled some essential tips for you on how best to do this.


Having a backyard space to practice means you are not going to the driving range and can focus more on controlling speed. Missing a shot can be bad, but overhitting it could make things much worse. If you miss by just an inch or two and the ball rolls off of green onto rough grass then your play is still salvageable even though there's less chance at best for success now since everything will depend on what kind (or height) hits them next!

One way to overcome missing is by practicing on different types of greens and applying varying levels of power. This will allow you a better understanding of how one becomes skilled at all speeds, as well as not hitting any shot too hard before it's time in the round. Secondly, always do some warm-up putts even if they're short; don't just go straight into your first stroke without taking care of warming yourself up!

Being able to practice putts in your backyard allows you to start controlling your swing more when putting.

Blind Putting

One of the best reasons to put a backyard putting green in is to practice blind putting at home any time, and almost anyone can play, not just experienced golfers!

You can do this by blindfolding yourself and taking one step back from the hole before carefully opening up to see if it's in range or not. You'll get an idea of where the hole is in relation to your feet and then just take one step back before closing your eyes tightly shut picturing the hole in your mind. This is an ideal way for beginners who want to improve their gameplay but don't know what they're doing yet. This method allows players who have trouble seeing at night or if conditions are poor enough without any visibility whatsoever to still enjoy this fun activity.

Putter That Fits & Put Your Head Down

Having a backyard putting green means you can practice correct form any time at all in your own backyard. Make sure when you are practicing that you have a putter that fits you correctly and don’t forget to put your head down and keep your eye on the ball!

Everyone knows this trick of the trade, but not everyone practices it. Your eyes should never be on the hole when taking a shot because your head is moving around and you can't keep track of exactly where that golf ball will end up in relation to everything else!

Practice Makes Perfect

The best way to improve your game is to practice, there is no easy way around that. However, you can make the ability to practice easier. Golf is a great activity to spend time with friends and family, but you can't go out on the course every day.

You want to improve your putting game, but it's hard to practice at home. It's difficult for beginners to understand how much force should be applied when striking the ball. And even if you have some experience, practicing by yourself at the club gets boring quickly.
