Step by step instructions to make your own golf driving mat!
Golf driving mats can come in handy when it comes to improving your golf skills, but not everyone on a tight budget can afford them. This is where the knowledge of how to build your own golf mat comes in handy.
Making your own rug is not as difficult as you think! By following these step-by-step instructions, you can make your own driving mat in no time.
One notable benefit of creating your own golf mat is that you can customize it according to your requirements. For example, you can choose to have more or less padding depending on your comfort zone.
Other than that, if you are an artistic person who likes to add something extra to each of your possessions, you can also do the same with your driving mat and customize it to your liking.
1- First, assemble the necessary elements to make a driving mat. This includes plywood, artificial grass, handsaw, utility knife, bonding spray/glue, and carpet padding.
2- The next step is to cut the piece of plywood with a handsaw into a 3 by 5 foot rectangular shape. This is the ideal size and shape, although it can vary based on your comfort level.
If you have enough room to stand on the piece of plywood and can comfortably hit the golf ball, then the size is adequate for a golf mat.
3- After that, you need to cut a piece of carpet padding and artificial grass. They must be exactly the same size as the plywood.
This is done to make sure that the mulch and grass completely and perfectly cover the piece of plywood.
4- Using the joint or spray glue, glue the carpet padding piece to the plywood piece. If you need a softer mat, you can add another layer of carpet padding.
5- After placing the carpet padding, you will need to spray the glue on top of the padding again.
6- Place the cut piece of artificial grass on the padding. Care must be taken to avoid wrinkles.
7- Let the mat rest for a day or two before using it to practice your golf skills!
It is recommended to use an adhesive spray or glue in a well ventilated area.
By following these steps, you will be able to make your own hassle-free golf driving mats that are easy to maintain and great for practicing on!
