*** Unofficial Review *** MR Golf Driving Cage 10x10x10ft, Golf Hitting Cage w/Ball Return System


Recommended Posts

Looks good! I will echo above, I like that it is shank proof. Interested in hearing more thoughts on it as you start to get some swings in.

Nice job! Your wife and mine would get along well - she also thinks I sometimes choose the hard way. 🤣

This is nicer than some of the nets I've seen at courses that don't have a range. Look forward to see how it holds up in the weather. I like the fact it's pretty much shank-proof. 

Ha!  Probably so.  

It seems to be pretty good quality and I liked that it came with a second net for the back.  The side nets are perfect, especially because the wife and son really want to start learning.

For sure!  The wife has decided she wants to do a full deck from the bottom of our stairs all the way to the net instead of just the hitting platform which will keep dirty feet off the mat as well.

I'll have to find the link but they sell just the shank netting.

This looks fantastic! How far off the fence are you? Any chance of impacting that and damaging it?

For under 400, that's a great deal! Considering pop-up style hitting tents run around 100-150, and are not high quality materials, and have to be taken down and storesld, then setup frequently!

Do they provide a replacement warranty of any kind for the netting?

Looks awesome, while everybody else is worried about shanking, I would be worried about pulling my swings. That part of the net would get tested out very well 😂

Currently it's only about 10in or so off the fence. It will come out another 6-8in.

I'll have to look when I get home on the warranty, but I want to say it may have been a year.

That looks good @Josh Parker! I love that it comes with the safety nets on the side to corral the occasional wayward shots. 

As @Rob Personstated, that's not a bad price for everything that's included if you compare it to some of the other nets or on the market.

I can't wait to hear the full rundown on the hitting area.

Did you use the ball return risers on the bottom rails?

The net itself is designed to return the golf balls and then it has straps that attach to the bottom rail and get shorter as it gets to the front of the net

Ahhh.  I see it now on the last pic.  Stupid old age eyes... duh!

The first pic looked like they had a second  bar connected to risers to elevate the back part of the floor netting.

@Josh ParkerThis is looking pretty darn good. I like the sandbags to sit on the bottom frame. With the ball return feature the sandbags will never come into play. I would definitely tie off the back top corners to the fence or stake it to the ground somehow. It will help any wind from bending the upper part of the frame. 

Do you think the frame is as strong compared to doing one out of EMT conduit? 

I have an 8 x 12 cement pad next to my shed doing nothing and this looks very interesting. I have a spare hitting mat. I do have a simulator in my garage that has heat and A/C. Why do I want to do this, I don't know. But that's why I'm a golf nut. Always looking for something to do golf related.   

We have sand bags ready to be filled and put on the bottom frame. Just need to finish the deck area and head down to the lake to fill the bags with rock.  Currently it is strapped at all 4 corners. 

I think the EMT is probably a touch thicker but not by much.  It has about a 4 in overlap between sections and I don't think stability will be an issue. 

The nice thing is, the wife and I can move it pretty easily and if I had to take it down, could take apart pretty quick.

I love these. I got the basically the same cage minus the side nets. I’ll be following yours and @Lacassem lead when I get ready to do my garage build and starting a thread for myself as well. 

It's been a lot of fun.  Of course the project keeps growing and once I'm able to do the addition to the house it will change again. Haha

We are going to add a sun shade tarp from the patio to the back fence so that during summer we will have some shade back there but that has been on the agenda since the end of this summer. Blocks out about 70% of the sun.

It's been a fun little project that has turned into a large project. Haha. But the wife puts up with my golf habits so I better build it the way she wants it.

Looks awesome! A couple things that I would offer up for help with having things outdoors with nets:

1) I don't know how hard your dirt is, but as an owner of several trampolines that have taken flight in high wind events, I HIGHLY recommend buying some helical screw anchors to secure your frame to instead of sandbags. I haven't used these specific ones that I am linking, just the ones with the fixed eyelet on the top that sometimes require a lawnmower blade replacement. https://www.homedepot.com/p/Vortex-16-in-Steel-Folding-Ring-Spiral-Anchor-4-Pack-ANCFR16-ORG-R/307634214  I just threw a cheap ratchet strap around the frame and secure it to the eye, then cut off the excess 12' of strap. I haven't had a trampoline fly away on me in three years.

2) Also high wind event related - my trampoline nets turn into a boat sail when the wind blows, and has bent the support bars and base legs several times. I ended up replacing the velcro and 550 cord fastening system with grommets and carabiners connected to an eye bolt drilled through the post so that I can take it down quickly when the weather turns to crap. Might be something to take a look into as I know for a fact  that the only thing that blows harder in Texas than the Cowboys in the playoffs is the wind.

I plan on trying to put in a couple anchors but we sit right on limestone and I doubt it will go in.  We pulled up the "grass" yesterday and it was literally just the piece of sod.  

I have thought of doing this so that it could be taken down quickly if needed but haven't figured out exactly how yet.

You can always get a masonry drill bit and drill right into the limestone and use expanding anchor bolts.

This is very true. I have 2 4x4 post on the fence that I was planning on strapping to as well. And I think my plan is to run the decking just over the front lip of the cage to hold the front down. May take some clamps and attach to the framing.
