THE DREAM GREEN
The purpose of this project is to finalize the automation of the Dream Green deformable putting green. The break of the putting surface is currently changed by using motors to slide wedges which was implemented by last year’s senior design team. These motors move the wedges under a number of bars that support the surface. The original Dream Green (the version currently for sale) is operated by manually sliding these wedges to raise/lower the surface. The ends of the surface may also be raised and lowered by the same wedge system for increased difficulty. The goal of this project is to complete the control systems necessary to automate these adjustments. The Dream Green is currently being used for both putting practice and competition.
Approach and Considerations
Deformable Putting Surface
Wedge pushes surface
Motor drives wedge
Wedge design patented by client
Estimated Schedule and Resources
The next generation Dream Green automates the deformable putting surface which is easier and faster than its predecessor. The Dream Green has been developed to meet the client’s needs and fulfill design objectives. The additional features and functionality will allow for a more marketable product for our client.
