Abstract: The purposes of this study were to establish an Indoor putting test for beginning golf students; to develop an indoor putting green which could be used in measuring putting accuracy; to study the reliability and validity of the Indoor putting test; and to establish the reliability and validity of an Outdoor putting test used by golf instructors at The University of North Carolina at Greensboro. One hundred and seventy-one subjects, who were beginning golfers enrolled in ten sections taught by golf instructors that were members of the Department of Health, Physical Education and Recreation during the spring of 1970, participated in this study. An Indoor green was designed, constructed from styrofoam, and covered with an outdoor-indoor carpet. The twelve feet by fifteen feet green was measured, marked and cut for five regulation holes. The Indoor putting test was developed. One administration consisted of putting and scoring one ball on the five-hole indoor green. Four administrations, or twenty holes, were requested. One administration of the Outdoor putting test consisted of putting and scoring nine holes on an outdoor practice green. Two or more administrations were requested.
