Whether you are an avid golfer or just looking for a fun way to entertain family and friends, a backyard mini golf course is something that can bring joy to everyone. If you live in Philadelphia, PA, Philly Artificial Grass Pros can help bring your backyard putting green ideas to life.

To get you started, here are six backyard putting green ideas to inspire your design:

1. Incorporate Fun Obstacles

Go beyond the classic windmills and loop-the-loops.  Consider tunnels, ramps, bridges, or even small sand traps professionally installed for a safe and durable setup.

If you’re going with a themed design, our designers can help you refine and execute your ideas. For instance, a sports-themed hole could have a custom-built hockey goal, while a jungle-themed course might feature a realistic-looking vine structure to putt through.

2. Play With Elevation

Golf isn’t just about aiming straight; it’s about navigating the highs and lows of the course. We can add mounds, dips, and sloping sections to your backyard putting green to offer more diverse shot opportunities. This can also add visual interest to your lawn.

3. Include Multiple Putting Greens

If you have ample space, consider having multiple putting greens professionally installed with varying levels of difficulty. This allows for enjoyable play for everyone from beginners to experienced golfers.

Artificial turf installation companies like us could help you seamlessly integrate the greens into your backyard using pathways and natural dividers.

4. Consider Lighting and Shade

Enhance evening play and keep everyone comfortable with professionally installed lighting and shade solutions. We can help you create a beautiful and safe environment with pathway lights, targeted spotlights, and stylish fixtures. We can also recommend suitable shade structures like pergolas, shade sails, or strategic tree placement.

5. Add Comfortable Seating Areas

Turn your backyard putting green into a social hub with comfortable seating areas. Benches, patio furniture, or even a hammock can provide places for players to relax between holes or for spectators to watch the game.

6. Couple Putting Green With Other Games

Why stop at mini golf? If you have the space, consider integrating other games into your putting green design. A bocce ball court, horseshoe pit, or even a cornhole area could provide additional entertainment options for family and guests.
