Benefits of Installing a Backyard Putting Green

Golf is an extremely popular sport. In 2018, 33.5 million people played golf on and off courses. With advances in artificial turf, homeowners and businesses are now able to install affordable and convenient, putting greens right in their backyards.


Imagine the ease and enjoyment of going to your backyard for a little golfing. You don’t need to worry about loading up clubs, driving in traffic, paying golf fees or waiting behind others. Installing a backyard putting green is a convenient way to enjoy the game while enhancing your home lifestyle.


A putting green is a fun way to increase your time exercising outdoors. Spending time swinging on a putting green can increase blood flow, lower blood pressure and increase fitness. This enjoyable activity involves standing, walking, focusing, swinging, stretching, bending and reaching. An international analysis of 400 studies on the health effects of gold found that golf can have a a positive impact on cholesterol, blood pressure and blood sugar – all of which can be improved through the cardiovascular effects of playing a round. You may even find that you start sleeping better at night.

Stress Reduction

Imagine coming home from a long day at work and relaxing time on your very own putting green. Many find golfing as a pleasant way to reduce stress and switch gears from racing thoughts and life’s pressures. Installing a putting green is an easy and fun way to relax and release tensions. Taking time to release tensions, stress and anxiety may help you unwind faster, allowing you to enjoy more quality time with your family.

Cognitive Benefits

Research has shown that golf offers cognitive benefits such as improved focus, concentration and problem-solving abilities. Moreover, golf related exercising increases your heart rate, which improves blood flow to the brain. This leads to the stimulation and improvement of nerve cell connections. Research suggests this can delay mental limitations such as dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Finally, the drive to challenge scores and improve techniques tends to increase self-confidence and self-esteem, while activating strategic cognition and motor skills.

Improve Your Golf Game in Your Backyard

Most golfers want to improve their game. Increasing performance is satisfying and rewarding, regardless of the person’s skill level. Yet, this requires time and practice. Rather than going to the range to practice, you will have a beautiful putting green right at home. You will have the freedom and opportunity to practice conveniently at home at your leisure and own speed. Having a putting green is a great way to improve your game without the hassle and expense of traveling back and forth from the golf course.

Saving Money on Gas & Maintenance Costs

Golfing is a great game. However, it involves lots of expenses (green fees, grass fees, golf cart rentals, equipment, clothes, etc). Although a putting green can’t replace an 18-hole course, having a putting green will reduce costs while allowing you unlimited access to the sport you love. Moreover, since it is created with artificial grass, it will require essentially no maintenance or water- saving you more money.
