Backyard net


Recommended Posts

What is the best backyard net that doesn’t break the bank? I see a lot of them that are 10’ wide and 7’ tall, is that big enough? I feel like I might miss, mostly on the height although I suppose if I’m close enough it shouldn’t be an issue.

Taylormade Burner 3w, stiff shaft 

Mizuno JPX919 Hot Metal 4-GW, regular flex

Cleveland Smart Sole 58* wedge

Ping Scottsdale Piper C putter

Titleist Tour Speed balls

Check out this thread, it's a little on the higher side price wise ($219), but it's well worth the money. The roof on it is a great feature and it's caught several shots for me. It's been sturdy, it's super easy to set up, and the ball return feature is great. 

Best of luck with whatever you choose!

If you are able to build your own frame or have a place to keep it up you can get a 10 x 14 high impact golf net from Florida Net Company for under $75.  I have been using one since about May and have been happy with it.

Speaking from experience... 

I have an 8' square net and even when hitting as close to it as I can my wedges can get way too close to the top for comfort, close enough for me to lose confidence so I daren't swing fully.  And I skied my driver over the top once too (saved by my neighbours tree), scared the living $##t out of me enough to stop me using it for anthing other than a backstop for chipping.

IMO, no matter how good you are, the odd 'sprayers' CAN happen.  It only takes one close call to cause you to lose confidence so you don't swing normally after  that, meaning your practice is not as useful.

I would highly recommend that you try to get a cage type setup to contain the wild ones if you can, and get a smaller (cheaper) replaceable impact net/panel to cover the main impact area.  I have gone through my 'impact panel' in a year, spinning golf balls are quite abrasive, replacing the cage net frequently is not the most economical plan.

I’ve thought about doing this, but my wife won’t want something that’s always up. I can build one above my shop at work, but then I have to stay at work longer to use it.

Yeah this is what I’m afraid of. I’ve seen a couple that look like the cage setup you’re taking about but they are more expensive.

Because i don't have space for a permanent setup I just bought a 10'x10'x10' replacement net and used 1" x 2" batten timber as props, but sturdier timber would be better.  Not 'cheap', but no more expensive overall than some of the 'better quality' free standing ones.  I have attached an image, hopefully it appears here ok.  The two rear props hook into brackets on the fence and outbuilding to hold them stable, and I use guy ropes attached to wall hooks for the front posts.  Sets up/down in under 10 mins.  It doesn't show on the image, but I use carabiner clips to hang an 'impact net' to protect the main net.

Hope this helps or give useful ideas.

Rukket Sport Haack Net. I owned one for several years. Never had an issue with any shots going beyond the confines of the net even when hitting some wedges. You can get it directly from Rukket or Amazon for $129 with Free Shipping.

I lucked into one of these practically brand new on FB marketplace for $75 and it's been incredible.

I think there are a bunch of nets that probably do well for most folks out there from what I’ve seen. I would suggest finding a drop down similar to the spornia net (honestly you could probably make your own with some zip ties and a sheet of canvas or something similar) to attach to the net for impact if you’re hitting real balls. This makes it so there’s just something cheaper you can replace when it wears out and have a nice cushion vs blasting straight into the net
