    I have this client that is tossing the idea around of installing a putting green in his back yard. I am by no means an expert on this subject but it would be cool to do in theory at least. Just wondering if anyone has ever installed a backyard green for someone. What are your thoughts on it and how did it go?

    Never done it but live by a golf course and became friends with the greens keeper. It is a major ordeal to install 1 right. The greens keeper has done a few for private individuals and they run in the thousands. (Tulsa OK) area. He actually gets paid to maintain the greens also. That is the only way he would put one in.
    Good luck,
    Even though it sounds fun, I would let it pass.

    There are some carpet greens on the market
