How To Practice Golf At Home

Golf practice at home is something you might want to think about. To improve, you don’t have to drive to the course. From the convenience of your home, you may hone your skills.

Are there 15 minutes available in between conference calls? Practice your putting. 30 minutes before your son’s basketball session, do you have any free time? Adjust your golf swing.


To improve your scores and golf handicap, practice golf at home and in your own time. Whatever you need to work on in your game, we’ve got specific suggestions below to help you practice golf at home.

How To Practice Putting At Home

On the greens, we could all cut down on strokes. More birdies, more par saves, and more fun results with improved putting.

Equipment Needed

Putter & Golf Balls

When you aren’t playing golf, it is advised that you store your putter at home. Maintain a few balls with it. You can easily access this when you have a few minutes to practice golf at home.

Putting Mat or Green

Golfers now have more options than ever before. For your home, it’s simple to find a cheap putting mat or indoor putting green. They are ideal for your office, den, or basement and are simple to store when not in use.

Putting Training Aids

Make a small investment in a putting practice tool if you’re serious about enhancing your short game. A “putting mirror” and/or “gates” are advised. Both will assist you in developing a more reliable putting stroke and are employed by professional golfers worldwide.

At Home Putting Drills

You can perform practically any golf putting drill at your home once you have the proper tools. Listed below are some of our favorites

Putt One-Handed

Drill that is quite simple. Play with your dominant hand when you putt (right-handed golfers use their right hand). You can develop a putt that releases the clubface properly by doing this. You’ll also develop better hand-eye coordination by playing golf at home.

Gate Putting Drill

Tiger Woods popularized gate putting, and now businesses will sell them to you. A fence is placed in front of your ball, and a second one is placed halfway to the hole. Rolling the ball through both gates and into the hole is the goal. You must correctly execute the putt’s line and speed in order to succeed.

Speed Control Drills

You may improve your control of putting speed by practicing golf at home, perhaps even more so than on the putting green. You have different speeds in your home. A thick carpet would indicate a slow-putting surface, and a hardwood floor would represent a very rapid green.

Use any available target that you have at home. A plastic cup works just fine. Try putting on various surfaces with a variety of putt lengths, and get practice with a variety of green speeds.


Hot to Practice Your Swing

Do you want to visit the driving range but the weather isn’t cooperating? Practice swinging at home.

Needed Equipment

Your Clubs

You must have access to your clubs if you want to practice golf at home. Even holding your clubs might help you stay mentally sharp during the winter.

Golf Simulator

You may practice golf at home whenever you want if you install a golf simulator, which can be fairly pricey. You’ll need an area in your basement, garage, or bonus room for all of the equipment.


Although you might be able to use the mirror in your bathroom, it would be wonderful if you had a mirror that you could move into the middle of a bigger space.

At-Home Swing Drills

Any golf swing drills can be practiced if you are fortunate enough to have access to a golf simulator. The golf practice tips below assume you don’t have a home golf simulator.

Do You Recognize Your Reflection?

When you analyze your golf swing, it can be surprising and challenging to make modifications. You can see your swing positions by using a mirror. For a better understanding of where the club is at impact and how your impact position appears, take slow-motion swings and gaze in the mirror. 

Improve Your Balance

You can increase your balance without hitting a ball. Take your 7-iron out and practice some full swings. Can you swing fully and land on your feet?

Improve Your Grip

If they improved their grip on the golf club, most amateur golfers could play the game better. This might be a challenging adjustment, and it will feel strange at first. Gain confidence in your new grip without worrying about embarrassingly missing shots. Change your grip while swinging comfortably at home. It will feel “natural” when you use your new grip at the driving range.

How To Practice Chipping

The most difficult aspect of the game to practice at home may be golf chipping, but it is possible. The aim should be to increase the consistency of the golf ball stroke.

Needed Equipment

Wedge & Golf Balls

Pretty basic. Bring a couple of golf balls and your sand wedge inside the house. Use plastic (practice) balls if you’re concerned about breaking something.

Golf Mat

A tiny pad will protect your carpet and floors. Nobody wants to have to tell their spouse why the rug has a tiny hole after your chipping session. You can also use a putting mat if you have one.

At-Home Chipping Drills

You won’t practice flop shots or bunker shots while playing golf at home. Your skill to pinch the ball off the ground should get better. Stop making fat or thin chip shots.

Chip A Coin

Even without golf balls, you can complete the first exercise. Try to chip some coins up into the air by placing them on your golf mat. Are you up for playing a good game? Try to make the coins fit in a coffee mug that is placed a short distance away. This exercise demonstrates the proper chipping motion.

Chip-in On Your Putting Green

Getting an indoor putting green or mat was mentioned in the putting section above. Consider chipping your ball into the hole as opposed to putting on it. Try hitting chips of various lengths and shots with various face angles. You’ll immediately discover that changing the clubface opens or closes the ball’s reaction.
