Ashamed of your swing and don’t want to get laughed off the golf course? If so, why not just build a golf practice net in the yard? You will be able to work on your swing and be lazy at the same time. Why lazy? Because the net will prevent the ball from getting away from you too far. Of course, it also has the added bonus of not letting it sail through a neighbor’s window too. Definite bonus.
What do you need to build your own golf practice net? A couple of posts, some stakes, some nylon cord and a baffle net. Or if you wanna go redneck, or just plain cheap, you can use a tarp instead.
Take the posts, which can be of any material, and put them in the ground in your yard. You’ll only need two posts and they need to be around 12 feet in length. The goal is to end up with a 10′ by 10′ golf net.
Once you got your posts in the ground, attach your net (or tarp) to the posts with some nylon ties. Leave a little slack in the net or when you hit a golf ball at it you will get the golf ball sent right back at ya! When you hit the ball at the net it should hit the net and fall to the ground somewhere in front of the net.
Also use the nylon cord to make some extra long ties for the tops of the posts. Anchor these ties in the ground with your stakes. You can use one stake for each post or two stakes for each post. If you live in a windy area, opt for the two stakes per post. When you’re done, it should look like the pic below.
