This Dix Hills home, listed for $829,000 with Myra Diamond of Signature Premier Properties, features a 30-by-15-foot oval putting green on a hill in the home’s sprawling backyard. It is located on its own separate level of land downhill from the home’s pool and patio, says Diamond.

The hillside putting green makes it ideal for any golfer to “replicate any putt on a real golf course on the green,” owner and avid golfer Lawton Squires said.

Squires’ wife, Janette Payne, gave the putting green to her husband as a Father’s Day gift in 2011. The three-hole artificial turf green features “a tee box separate from the green so you can hit longer shots, and you don’t just have to putt,” Squires said.

The home also features a library off the master suite and a remodeled kitchen.
