    I should put aside the building of it, how are you going to maintain it, what kit do you have at your disposal? a mower is my first thought.

    It's likely to be a lot of work for a small 'green' - both construction and maintenance - and is unlikely to be of similar pace etc to the greens at your club at the end of the day. Google 'how to lay a putting green' and you will find a lot of advice, both in writing and videos. This one looks to be quite detailed:

    That said, I have known two people who did it , putting in the time and effort, and then using it assiduously to improve their putting . They were however larger and more complex 'facilities' than the 'fake' in your photo, and I suspect it was the ability to play from all angles over (deliberately) undulating ground that made much of the difference - that, plus they were large enough for chipping practice as well as many lengths of putts, at which they became quite good.
