Whether it's for a mini-golf course or a putting green on which to practice your short game, making your own golf hole can be a fun way to take your golf game home with you, and putting a green around it ensures you get all the use you want out of it.
Shape the area around your desired hole location with the shovel and dirt rake, if needed.
Dig a hole about 4 inches deep and 5 inches around.
Place the PVC pipe into the hole and hit it down until it is only an inch above ground level.
Pack the dirt tightly around your pipe to hold it in place.
Hit the pipe with the mallet until it is just below ground level.
Reseed the area for your green and let it grow.
Set the reel mower to the desired height (about 1/8 of an inch) and mow the area of your green.
