Let the outdoor games begin thanks to Ryobi for sponsoring this post! The weather has turned for the better and we can now make the most of our outdoor spaces. I built this DIY mini putt course outdoor game for our backyard space and I’m sharing the free plans with you.
A DIY tutorial to make a mini putt course. Build a portable mini putt course for your backyard or patio space with free plans.
Everyone enjoys a little putt putt every now and then. So why not make a mini putt course for your backyard? All the details including cut lists and step by step instructions are over at Ryobi Nation along with many more outdoor games you’ll want to consider adding to your outdoor space. BONUS! I have a Ryobi tools giveaway down below! (Update 6/21/19: GIVEAWAY CLOSED.)
I designed this mini putt course so you can build two tracks from one sheet of plywood and one artificial grass rug. Having two mini putt holes let’s you create a competition against multiple players.
I shared the building instructions over at Ryobi Nation but be sure to scroll down below for a few construction tips.
To make the hole I used a 3″ PVC plumbing cap at 1 1/2″ deep. Trace the cap on the plywood where you want the hole. Predrill a 1/2″ hole with a forstner bit in order to fit the jigsaw blade in the space. Then cut out the 3″ hole with a jigsaw.
Once the turf is completely attached to all sides of the plywood then cut the turf at the hole – like you would a pizza – making multiple cuts across the diameter. Then pull back the wedges and staple the turf to the back of the plywood. This creates a nice flat turf on the course and covers the plywood at the hole opening.
For the complete building process follow my plans here.
