As far as backyards go, Kevin Harvick has just about everyone beat.

Outdoor putting greens are fairly common in, and outside of homes – but Harvick takes it to another level. The NASCAR driver is an avid recreational golfer – so much so, in fact, that he has a replica of Augusta National’s 12th hole in his backyard:

“It’s a little bit smaller and a little bit out of proportion, but in theory, if you’re just standing back with a quick glance, it definitely looks the same,” Harvick told For The Win. “So we had a corner of the yard that I convinced my wife was never going to grow grass, and we needed to utilize it. And we convinced her that it would be a good spot for (his son) Keelan and I to hang out and hit golf balls, so it worked out.”

Harvick’s son, Keelan, has burgeoning interest in the game, as you’ll see below:

The Harvicks sure take their golf seriously.
