Golf net question

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I was looking for a golf net for the backyard.  After reading some reviews on one that is in my price range I am having concerns of a ball going through the net.  Does anyone have any experience with this type of problem?

 

I assume that simply hanging a sheet behind the net would suffice, but perhaps even using plastic balls or something of that nature.  Any advice would be appreciated.

you didn't specify what golf net you are thinking of purchasing. On that note, I don't know any that are defective. you can also stake down the back side so it won't go through.

a couple layers and letting them hang loose gathers up shots pretty nicely.

 

staking the bottom side down is about the worst thing to do since it holds the net taut and makes it easier to hole it

 

a foot or two of excess on the bottom of the net will ensure skulls don't slip under....

This is specifically the net I had in mind.  I assumed that you can just hit regular golf balls into it as that would be the best type of practice imo.  I think that driving a ball through it would be a manufacturer defect, but I have zero experience with equipment like this.  In one of the reviews it said that they made the net too taut and it came back at them with a vengeance!

 

Thanks rehmwa, that is what I think I would have to do just to be safe.

This is my other more economical option that I am considering.  Just not sure if it would be a good fit for my backyard as I have neighbors that are really close and do not want any chance of damaging their property.

I have to recommend this one for several reasons but here's the two biggest. First it's easy to set up and take down. I have a nice lawn where I practice and if I left the net up the grass would eventually die and the sprinklers would constantly soak the net, not to mention moving it to do yard work. To move/store it I just remove the back leg and lean the net against the house. Second the netting on the bottom of the net makes it easy to retrieve the balls. Just walk to the back, tip the net forward and the balls roll to the front. The target is soft material so contact from the ball is quiet. No complaints from the neighbors. I have had this net for months now and no signs of wear. I bought the 9x10.  http://www.amazon.com/Callaway-Tri-Ball-Hitting-Net-10-Feet/dp/B005THTIES/ref=sr_sp-atf_image_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1366467861&sr=8-1&keywords=callaway+tri+ball  . As far as the mat I also recommend this one. Been good so far.  http://www.allturfmats.com/Monster-Tee-Golf-Turf-TT3660-p/tt3660.htm
