Driving and chipping. Most of us golfers could use a little extra help in the those departments, but we all don’t have the time to always get to the course. That’s where a golf practice net can come in handy.
Most golf practice nets are very compact and easy to set up. The concept is simple — take your swings and knock the golf balls into the net. Whether you’re working on your drives or your wedge game, many nets are multi-use so you can practice both aspects of the game.
