|Golfers are dedicated sportsmen, and like to get out on that green as often as possible. But when it’s not possible, you can bring a little bit of the golf course to them, by doing their home office or study in golf decor.
If you’re starting from the ground up, then choose a type of carpeting that will provide as near an experience to the actual surface of a golf course as possible. Tile, or hardwood just lets the ball skitter across the surface, making it hard to control a short tap. Pile and shag are out, because it will be impossible to putt across the soft surface, and they’ll end up driving a ball through the window. A short napped carpeting, or indoor/outdoor carpet is a great surface for a little puttering around when they have the time.
After you lay the flooring, and have moved all the furniture in, gift your duffer with a putting stand to hold a selection of his putters. The most useful ones have compartments for balls, and a “tunnel” under the bottom of the stand that serves as a target when they get an urge to practice. The stands come in a variety of wood finishes, that can be mixed and matched with your office desk or wall paneling.
