Creative and inspiring practice space examples
Multi-level yard oasis
- This golfer converted terraced backyard levels into a cascading wonderland. The upper level houses a 20 x 12-foot hitting mat offering full drivers and mid-irons rehearsal into a protective net enclosure. Distance markers painted on mats track carry and rollout.
- The middle plat formed area utilizes three varied lie mats to rehearse uphill, sidehill, and downhill chip shots plus challenging buried lies from 25-60 yards toward backdoor green side nets. Ramps and side nets return balls to designated holding circles.
- The lowest level becomes a spacious putting surface with multiple tiers, break lines, and holes to lag or knock in short knee knockers. All areas include video tripods, lesson boards, and padded turf. The total multi-level structure provides complete short-game training in a compact space.
Hybrid Living Room Swing Studio
For those limited to indoor space, here’s an inspired urban indoor/outdoor design option. The central hitting station features a high-quality mat earning daily use for full swing practice. Impact netting absorbs and protects while collecting realistic data. The adjacent indoor living room area converts into a flexible short game simulator using projector screens as virtual targets when pulled down over floor-to-ceiling windows. Mats seamlessly align to painted yardage zones on the hardwood floors allowing chips and pitches. Foam railroad ties act as varied obstacles and collection tools. The far living area transforms into a spacious practice putting green using an elevated dual-tiered mat running wall to wall. Drapes provide backdrops replicating actual on-course environments.
