Coolist Backyard In Golf

This is a link to Dave Pelz's teaching area at his golf school. Might be the BEST short game practice area ever. I can see why top pros in the world would go to him to work on their short game, he has everything anyone could ever need for working on the short game. Hard to imagine anything better than what Pelz has to offer his students.

Very impressive!  I can only

Very impressive!  I can only imagine what he charges for lessons!

I doubt his rates are any

I doubt his rates are any worse than what the top insturctors are charging these days. Some of the top rated guys charge a couple thousand for a half day session. NOT in my budget for sure.

Yeah...and he gets to teacher

Yeah...and he gets to teacher from home so I bet his rates are about the norm.  

My question:   What did he say to his wife to be able to do that?  I don't think I would have had any such luck when I was married..  Ha!

it's a BIG tax break in the making.

When a person uses part of his home or land for a business, he can deduct part of his mortgage, his electric and water bill, plus other expenses. It works like a NEGATIVE expense. I would be willing to bet he is saving thousands of dollars each month with his setup at home. There are some downsides to doing this, but if he plans for the future correctl, he will be way ahead in the end with his at home business arrangement.

Anyone ever looked into

Anyone ever looked into building their own putting/practice green?  I bought one a few years ago from Costco, about 6ft long and a couple feet wide, very sturdy, with some slight pads you can put under it to make break.  Really nice but I've learned I really want one bigger..Not sure if it would be a pain in the ass to upkeep or what.

Great putting mat idea

Scott, I've got one of those putting mats too. Mine is 8 feet long and maybe 18" wide with a raise cup that has an automatic ball return.

IF you want to make your putting mat BIGGER, try my idea.  Go to a fabic store and buy some FELT, either 36" or more in width. Place the cup end of the mat you have on top of a 1/2" thick piece of 4' by8' plywood. Then place the felt you purchased over the mat, to make it wider and longer. You will have to make a wedge shape piece of wood to allow the ball to roll up onto the plywood and NOT hit the edge of the plywood. Then you can add a Block of Wood, under ONE corner of the sheet of plywood to Add Slope to your green. Depending on HOW long or wide you want it, you can add more sheets of plywood for either length or width. Add more blocks of wood UNDER the plywood for contouts as you like. Up Hill, or Down Hill, Left or Right breaking putts. it's up to you. Depending on how much open area you have to work with, you can make it as big as you want, and it's pretty easy to lay it out or put it away as needed. I know the felt comes in 36"  and 60" widths, so you have options on the felt as well. I think 1/4" plywood would be fine IF you have a nice level and hard surface to work with.
