I have a Tour Links putting green that is 9'7" long and about 24" at it's narrowest point. That design does not allow you to take a stance and practice short putts. They sell a stance platform with newer designs and that is where I got the idea.

Went to Lowes, got the wood and the screws, then to WalMart for the artificial turf. I had Lowes cut the 1x3x8 board into 1.5' x 2 and 2.5' x 2 pieces and found a 2'x2' x 3/8" plywood sheet. These pieces and the 1 1/4" screws cost under $13. Off to WalMart and to the Household Goods section where I picked up a 2'x1.5' green grass doormat for $2.97.  $15 and you are ready to do a little cutting and assembly for the perfect addition to your putting green. I also used some scrap 2x4 pieces I had at the house. If you need to buy a 2x4, get a cheap 6' piece for less than $3. I also used black Grill paint I had already, but painting is an option and not necessary.

Assembly:

Cut the 2.5' pieces to 2' lengths and then rip them to 2" width, rip the 1.5' pieces to the same 2" width. Screw the pieces together into a rectangular frame.

Cut the 2'x2' plywood piece to fit inside the frame. Attach the plywood to the frame with the screws, I used 5 on each side and each end. If you have a countersink, use it, and pilot holes for the screws helps tremendously.

I attached three 8" 2x4 pieces underneath the platform, equally spaced. This give the platform strength and rigidity. Use 3 screws to attach each piece, working from the top of the platform. Again, a countersink helps out a lot here.

Paint the platform and let it dry.

Attach the green grass doormat with 10 screws around the perimeter.

Here is the finished product, a perfect , dead level match to the putting green.
