Golf Practice Net Setup Instructions

by Robert Preston

    Using a golf net to work on your swing is an excellent way to get in some practice time without having to spend a lot of money on range balls. While the installation of a net is a relatively simple process, there are some things to consider in order to keep your net and surrounding area as safe as possible.

    Items you will need

    • Golf net
    • Zip ties
    • Shovel
    • Dirt rake
    • Anchor stakes
    • Hammer

    Step 1

    Choose a proper spot for your net. While your net should catch all shots, it is ideal to place the net in a setting where minimal danger or damage will occur if shots miss the net.

    Step 2

    Level the ground in front of the net so you will have a flat hitting area. This may require a shovel for severe slopes, or simply a dirt rake for ground that is already fairly level and has loose soil.

    Step 3

    Assemble the frame of the net by sliding the small ends of the pieces of tubing into the larger ends.

    Step 4

    Secure the netting to the frame using zip ties.

    Step 5

    Anchor the net in place by hammering anchor stakes around the portion of the frame which extends back from portion you will be hitting balls into.
