What is the best way to maintain a low maintenance putting green?

I want to create a putting green in my front yard in a bare (mostly sunny) spot. Also, I’d prefer no "manicuring" besides the obvious low cutting when I want to use it, so no fertilizer, excess weed killing, or aerating.

A local seed shop recommended zoisha or centipede. I would like to know if anyone has experience using these breeds intentionally (as in not the people who consider these breeds as weeds in their lawns), and what types of maintenance I absolutely have to do with them. Thanks ahead!
