Amazon's No. 1 bestselling indoor putting green is down to just $35

Looking to hone your game or treat that golf-obsessed dad for Father's Day? This gift is a hole-in-one.

With the colder months behind us, it's time to step into summer mode and shed last year's "duffer" title with a little at-home recreation. Whether you're looking to improve your game, or you're hunting for the perfect Father's Day gift, the Putt-A-Bout Par Three Golf Putting Green is a bona fide Amazon No. 1 bestseller — and it's currently on sale for just $35, down from $50. This is the kind of item we love: It's got what we call a high fun-to-cost ratio, promising hours and hours, and ultimately years and years, of skill-sharpening entertainment for less than the cost of a dinner for two. Now that's a hole-in-one!

This 9x3-foot patch of turf is made in the USA with PET resin and has no-skid backing.

$35 at Amazon

Whether you're teeing up for a last-minute Father's Day gift or aiming to improve your swing, this $35 price tag is the lowest we've seen since the holidays. A day at the green will generally run you about $30. While this can't compare to the fairway, it can improve your skills without breaking the bank.

The Putt-A-Bout features a smooth, true playing surface and won't slide around on carpeted, tiled and hardwood floors. Just unroll it, plop it down and get putting! It provides three hole options (left, right and center) and even features built-in "sand" traps that mimic the peripheral hazards that accompany real-life play.

Needless to say (we hope), it's a terrific gift idea for the golfer in your life, but it's also a great toy for anyone looking for some skill-based at-home diversion. Make like a big-time executive and putt away while you're on the phone! Oh, and have we mentioned that kids will love it? Um...kids will love it.

Don't be surprised that Amazon's offering this putting green at such a marvelously low price. That's just par for the course. Har. (Amazon)

What reviewers say 💬

Low price. Challenging yet fun. Playable by anyone. Is it any wonder the Putt-A-Bout Par Three Golf Putting Green has garnered more than 16,000 five-star ratings?

Pros 👍

This dutiful daughter scored one for her 86-year-old dad: "Pops has always been an active guy, played professional basketball and baseball, and absolutely loves golf. Haven't been able to get out and play too much lately, so this gift was perfect. ... Super fun." She added: "Pops loved the idea that he can practice putting it in the comfort of his living room. We watched the U.S. Open and had a putting contest. BEST Father's Day gift ever. I just purchased two more, one for my hubby and his best pal and golf partner."

"Anyone who needs a true review from a real golfer, here it is," We're listening. ... "So easy to line up a putt and give yourself a true feel and a great line. I slapped down a chalk line for six-foot putts. I wake up every morning and sink five in a row and go about my day. This has helped me soooooo much on the course. It’s made my short putts easy. ... My friend has a $200 setup, and this exceeds it."

One shopper chimed in with this tip: "This is a great practice mat to use indoors. Not a professional putting green but just helps keep the dust off. We have used it on carpet and tile. Tile is better but carpet works. Great bang for your buck"

Cons 👎

One quibble reviewers express isn't so much about the green as it is about how it's shipped. A handful of reviewers note that.

"It did have a few creases that I expect will flatten over time, caused by the box getting crushed a little in the middle during shipping. Ball still rolls smooth though!" said another shopper.

"I used it for my garage. The ad says rolls out without wrinkles but that's not true. It does have lots of wrinkles they come out with a steamer on low. The sand traps don't catch the balls as well as I would like but for the price it is good for when the guys come over chilling in the garage after a cookout." said one linksman.
