I am considering picking up a few pieces to setup a small practice area in my back yard. My backyard is small (typical for suburban Chicago) and is about 30' by 60'. It is large enough that I can chip the balls around, and I do that. But I can't hit full length clubs. I am considering picking up (or possibly building) a net and picking up a matt with a rubber tee and working on hitting the driver.
here is my problem. I have a range that is less than 10 minutes away and for the cost that I estimate it will cost me to assemble a cheap home setup (say $120 ~ $150) I can go to the range a dozen or more times. So I am trying to justify if I will actually use the home setup.
The question is for those that have a backyard setup. Do you use it often enough that it has helped? For those that have a practice facility close to the house, do you still have a home setup?
Thanks in advance
