Indoor/outdoor golf net

Post by Kevin Lee Lago » Wed, 17 Jan 1996 04:00:00


I'm interested in buying a quality golf net to use in my garage. I am
willing to spend up to $250.00. Does anyone have any names of
manufacturers or golf companies that carry such items? Also, any
recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
 I'm a 5.6 handicap and I just purchased new irons....finally! Cobra Tour
model (not oversisze model); the oversize cobra's are very nice, however,
the "extra" yardage you get from them stems from their degree of loft. (a
typical PW is about 48 deg; the cobra oversize = about 43 deg. Hence, the
greater length). This also creates a large "gap" between the PW and the
SW in terms of degrees.

                              Thanks, Kevin

One recommendation: Make sure your net has a durable target sheet at
the back. If you are a hard hitter no netting I have seen will hold
your ball. I have a garage window and an unhappy neighbour who will
attest to this fact.

Right on.  It's called a "baffle".  I have a nice six inch grouping of
golf ball size dimples at 7-iron height in my steel garage door from
the holes I've punched through the original netting and two baffles.
A well-worn golf ball cover with a well-struck 7-iron spin on it has
all the net-friendly characteristics of a belt sander with course grit
sandpaper!

By the way, I don't recommend the multi-purpose net I have, so I
haven't bothered to mention the name.  Probably almost anything will
do if you have a good quality baffle set up so that the majority of
the properly struck balls hit it rather than the "cage" netting.

Try the pop-up net (Austad's has one). I use mine in my garage in the winter.
It has a target (backdrop) and sets up in about 30 seconds. It doesn't miss
any shots if you don't. By that I mean if you hit a very bad shot (under, toe,
etc.) it is possible to get out of the net. Its about $125, I think.
