Joneser - I built my own putting green based off of your thread here and even used the Camry trunk liner (same ebay seller).  Mine is 4'x just under 12' as I didn't take into account the actual size of the 2x4 when doing my engineering.  In any case, how is your liner holding up?  While my overall craftsmanship isn't the greatest (you can see the joint where I had to mate the 4'x8' and 4'x4' plywood and has now progressively become uneven where it was previously pretty darn close), the felt seems to wad up like a hairball quite a bit.  Have you had this issue as well and have you figured out a fix for it?  Between that and the fact that it's a pain to vacuum anything out of it (mine is my detached garage that gets a lot of dust/debris on it, I almost wish I went with an artificial turf.  The ball rolls smooth and fast though on it.

Mine is holding up perfect.  The MDF was screwed and glued in many places so it isnt going anywhere.  I also don't have any seems so that is another bonus.  I have not had any issues with the carpet but I dont run a vacuum over it or anything like that.  My son has used it to sit on while playing video games and we have not seen any changes in the surface.  I do wear shoes on it too so its certainly not like its babied.  The only regret I have is how heavy this thing is.  Its hard to move but if I would have used less wood it would not be so sturdy so there is a trade off.

I've only vacuumed once and the primary reason I did was that it was wadding up. Well that and the debris.

Everytime I look at these DIY putting greens I get upset I bought a birdie ball and didn't just make one myself. All of them look way better and feel like they will roll truer.

If I recall correct, you live in the Austin area.  I am giving mine away since we sold our house.  We can number the pieces before breaking it down and you can just screw it back together.  As long as you have a truck, it's yours!

Great thread!  But I wonder how well these will do with 300 pounds?

Any reason why you went with two pieces of MDF?  Do you think a single piece of 1/2" would be okay?  was this more for getting the right height built up or for the stiffness you wanted?  Just thinking of how to save some weight
