How to Make Your Own Golf Course

This summer, Harold decided he loves to play golf. His swing wasn't too bad to be honest. He can hit the golf balls farther and more consistently than I can, not that that is saying much but hey I was still pretty impressed.

A few years ago we bought a little piece of property, less than an acre, across the road from the cabin in Minnesota. Someday we hope to build a large shop there but we have been looking for a way to use the property in the meantime.

And that's when we got a genius idea . . . let's build a golf course.

As you will see, Harold did a large amount of the work with just a little guidance from dad.

Here's step by step how to build your own golf course:


Start by mowing down a field of grass on a piece of land you are otherwise not sure how to use.


Next cut a few pieces of PVC pipe. A larger one for the golf ball hole and a smaller one to hold the flag poles.


Zip tie the small pipe inside of the larger pipe.


Cut out flags. For this project we used a brightly colored shower curtain.

Dig a hole.


Place pipe in the hole and pack the dirt around the pipe.

Stick that flag in the ground.


And you're all set to play a round of golf at your leisure.

Too cute! My sister and I made a little golf course outside of our home when we were young and really enjoyed it. I'm sure Harold will have a lot of fun with his little course too.

While most novice golfers simply started playing golf for the fun of it, a knowledge and understanding of the game of golf will add greater pleasure of playing the game. An introduction to some golf basics for beginners of how golf is played and the rules of the game will go a long way in helping the novice golfer starting on the exciting game of golf.
