It's an age-old golfing problem: you need to work on your putting skills but the greens of the local club are buried under an inch of frost. Wii golf isn't quite cutting it, and the hall carpet just isn't the same as that layer of lush grass. What you need is a Brunswick putting green. And a really, really big house.
Specialists in oversized boys toys, Brunswick have added to their range of pool tables, shuffle boards and air hockey sets with The Only Green - a set of fully adjustable putting greens.
Handmade in the US from a range of hardwoods, the artificial turf of the green can be raised and lowered in sections to mimic the gentle rises of your local course. Crafty left-to-right slope just before the flag? Raise the height using sliders on the side of the base. Starting at £2,420 for the eight-foot expanse of the 'Ross', the £7,200 'Mackenzie' model is a staggering 20 feet in length, with some three million potential break combinations.
You'll have to import one from the US if you're looking to up your game - but if you've got a 12-by-four foot space in your house that's begging for a putting range, we doubt the shipping costs will put you off. For more information, sink into this incredibly American sales video.
