I’m in no golfer, but I did have one of those small putting machines in University that I extensively used whenever I had an essay to write. But if you find yourself in the corporate world needing a procrastination tool I think this is the way to go. The Putting Challenge from dublisGolf is like your own personal miniature golf course. While it’s technically just one hole, the green can actually be transformed into 72 unique configurations with different banks and hills thanks to its flexible surface and a series of motors.
It also includes a special console with an LCD display that will automatically track the scoring for up to 4 different players. I’m not sure how it works, but a “patented sensor system” is mentioned on the website. The green surface material is designed to match the rolling friction experienced on an actual putting green, so serious golfers can also use the Putting Challenge for practice. Playing a round of 18 “holes” with 4 players will supposedly kill about 40 minutes, but if you get a whole tournament going you can easily waste an entire work week.
The Putting Challenge costs about $2,700 and it can be folded up and transported in its own rolling case which is an extra $1,060.
