Anyone know where I can get some cheap nets that I can use to hit golf balls
into.  I already have a frame, and just need a cheap(around $50) net.  I've
checked the hardware stores, but they don't seem to carry nets.  Any help
would be appreciated.

Chris,

Try a marine supply store.

Look under "net and netting" in your local yellow pages.  Make sure you get at
least a 3/4" #18 netting.  #15 netting is too weak and 1" netting is too big
(holes are too big to hit woods into).

any type of sheet or blanket will work just fine.It may not look pretty
but an old bed sheet will cost almost nothing

You might try a boating or fishing store, they usually have a descent
selection

Hey Chris, you can try what I did ... stop down to your local range, and
ask them if they have any old sections of netting they'd let go of. Make
sure you know what measurements you need before you head out!

I got four sections of net free ... had to restring two holes, but other
than that, they were perfect!

Larry,

That has to be the winner of the excellent idea of the month award!  We have over
15-20 courses (most with ranges) in my area, and another 5 or so stand-alone
driving ranges.  I wish I had thought of that idea before I bought the netting for
the cage I built. I though I was doing well by purchasing raw netting (3/4" #18)
and building my cage myself (I spend about $135 for an 11'x11'x11' cage).

That is an excellent idea Larry.

Try a commercial fishing store if you live near water, they sell netting by
the pound and $50 will get you a huge net.

I agree wholeheartedly... I'm setting up an at-home practice station, too...
I'm *so* tired of paying $$$$$$ at practice ranges (I'd rather save the $ for
playing on the course! :)


about $90 - :(
I'll do my *own* stance-minding, thank you! (LOL)

Also went to the local carpet store:  tired of hitting the club fat on the
ground on the course and on those d**n plastic "turf" at the range, I became
frustrated on getting nothing but bone bruises on my right mid-forearm and
losing $$ to show for my efforts (not to mention the *** "astro-turf residue"
on my irons - ugh!!!!!
