Now that you have our choices for the best golf nets on the market, it’s time to narrow down which will be the best for you. Some golfers look for more of a golf cage experience, while others just want a barrier to ensure they don’t hit the neighbor’s house. Regardless of the exact net, you are looking for, here are the things to keep in mind.
Most golf nets are about 7ft x 7ft at a minimum. However, the ones that I found to be better were at least 8ft high and 8ft long. Some options are 10ft wide, and I like those for beginners who still hit some errant shots.
Overall the size of the net has to fit in your space, but if you go with the more narrow nets, think about side netting to help take care of errant shots.
The ability to take a golf net indoors and outdoors is a great feature. I like hitting golf balls outside, but it’s great to have a net that you can use indoors when it’s raining or cold.
When putting a golf net indoors, I recommend going with something a little higher in quality. These better golf nets will eliminate some rebound effects and ensure the walls around your indoor golf course simulator are not damaged.
The golf nets’ price starts at around $75, but it can go up over $500. Go for something cheap if you want to hit a few balls in the yard after a day on the course. If you just bought yourself a Trackman launch monitor, go all in on the best possible golf net technology.
Indoor vs. Outdoor
Although some golf nets say they are indoor and outdoor, I still like to keep my net out of either when possible. Some of the problems are that there is steel in these nets that get rusted when you leave them out in the weather.
If you want to leave something outside, stay away from any materials that can rest.
