Genius!
Never Have I Ever Mowed My Lawn Into A Putting Green
By Kickntrue on 5/26/09
Here's a fun new summer feature for oob, "Never Have I Ever..." If you're unfamiliar with the game you can read about it here, but basically what happens is I make a statement about something I've never done, and anyone who HAS done it has to admit their severe golf addiction. It's often a drinking game revealing your inner slutdom, but I figure this is probably worse.

I know there are people out there, let's hear from you...

From user- Darrell Louder:

Never have I ever MOWED MY BACKYARD LOW ENOUGH TO PRACTICE PUTTING (only to have the area turn brown and die within 24 hours!)

Of course, it wouldn't be fun if I just listed mine, so this is most certainly an interactive game. Email me at andrew@oobgolf.com your best "Never Have I Evers..." and we'll have some fun!

I actually considered (and still considering) putting one in. There's a lot more to it then just cutting the grass short, that's why I haven't done it yet.

I don't have the yard yet, but when I do, I'm seriously considering a putting grren like one of these: southwestgreens.com. I've also thought about mowing my parents yard to fairway length.

I actually did it once to try to play tennis, Wimbledon-style. Dad LOVED that when he came home.

There's an anonymous OOBer on here I play with who has an aritificial putting green in his back yard. His kid's sandbox was located close to it so he can practice his bunker play as well.

I always thought that it would look super cool to have a practice green in my backyard, but I think I will wait until they start to charge me for the practice geen at the golf course.

Gentlemen; First of all, you don't use a rotary mower to cut a putting green, you use a reel type lawnmower for that job & cut it close. In the 60's we did that to our front lawn in Pac. Pal. (2 Tiers & lots of brake. 2 cups). The Grass was very good because it had been planted in 1928 when the house was built and well maintained. Good for practice before we wen't down the street to play at Riviera. High grade Astroturf works well these days and is what I have in my 12' x 26' 6 hole putting green (3 tier, moderate brake, sand and rough 5' off)JWHpurist

I tried it once, didn't work, you have to have one of those fancy lawnmowers, It was a good spot to pitch and chip to, though.
