Birdie Ball: The Indoor, Portable Putting Green

Birdie Ball

Living in the Northeast where the golf season is slightly shorter than most, you are lucky if you can get seven maybe eight months of golf in. This forces the golfer to look for alternative ways to keep the game sharp or at the very least going in the off season. I have played golf for over thirty years and have tried and used many if not all options when it comes to indoor putting greens. I have used the automatic ball return devices, putting on the carpet and the indoor/outdoor carpet. Some of them are better than others but none of them are ideal in any way shape or form. They all have their various drawbacks and limitations. So when I was given a chance to review the Birdie ball putting green I was extremely excited for the opportunity.

Birdie Ball Inc. was founded in 2002 in Golden, Colorado, a small family business, that focuses on customer service and providing their invaluable customers with fun and innovative golf products. John Breaker the president was so kind in giving me this opportunity to review his product. They offer many different sizes and options to fit just about anyone’s budget. I chose to evaluate 3’ x 12’ size putting surface in the classic ½” green style. They sent me a medium green speed of 10-11 Stimp. Birdie Ball Greens offer three different speeds slow 9-10, medium 10-11 and fast 11-13 Stimp. I have three cups on one end and two cups on the opposite end, with bumpers on both ends. The setup also came with five hole flags, four low back cups, one high back, a hole deepening shim as well as a hole reducing insert and small section of green for creating breaks.

Birdie Ball greens

Let me tell you a few things about the Birdie ball putting greens before I get into the performance of the product. The green has a specific side to putt on. It is what they call the “fuzzy side”. When you unroll the green for the first time it is the surface on the outside of the roll. You should also always store the green with this surface to the outside of the roll. They list three items as the enemy of the putting green, heat, intense sunlight and pointed objects. So it shouldn’t be used in direct sunlight or while wearing golf shoes. They also have a disclaimer when it comes to pets as we know with claws and their ability to scratch and dig at items not a good combination for the putting green.

Birdie Ball Hole

I have been rolling putts on the Birdie Ball putting green for over a month now. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t spend a few minutes on the green rolling some putts. The green rolls true and what they call the medium speed green rolls at a pretty good pace. They roll so true the fact is I can pick and aim for a specific side of the cup not just the cup in general. The bottom of the cups have small circles that hold the ball in place so you can easily aim for a space not occupied by a ball. You can easily set the green up for breaking putts also by inserting the provided shims underneath the green. I found that with the holes so close to the edges on the 3’ wide green it made the putt break very sharply. You pretty much couldn’t start the putt far enough out to the right or left to make the putt. If you had the wider four foot green I would think this would be fine. The Birdie ball putting green putts truer and more consistently than any other putting green that I have ever used or owned. The flags that come with the setup make it very easy to pick the balls up out of the holes (just like most putting greens on an actual golf course). The hole reducer works great when you want to narrow the focus and refine your stroke. I didn’t try this but they claim that you can slow down or speed up the pace of the green by using a broom or brush to either brush with the grain or against the grain of the surface. Yes the Birdie ball putting green has a grain to the surface. This is also the way they recommend cleaning the green off as well as using soapy water to clean any spots if you need to. The bumpers or edges they provide with the kit stop any speedy putts from racing away. The Birdie ball people offer many different choices when it comes to sizes and price ranges which should meet the needs of most anyone out there. They also offer other unique golf items on their website so check them out at birdieball.com, as well as their social media sites on Facebook,Twitter and Instagram.
