Indoor Golf Practice Nets: What Every Golfer Needs

Indoor golf nets are necessary for indoor golf practice because you surely don’t want to walk 40–50 yards just to retrieve the ball.

Going to a driving range is not a bad idea, but if you’re a part-time golfer, do you have enough time to travel there?

With that in mind, you’d be thinking about getting the perfect indoor golf net for you, and if you haven’t figured it out, don’t worry because I’ve come up with the top 5 practicing nets that you should consider buying.

Let’s get into it.

Best Overall Indoor Golf Net: The Net Return Pro Series V2 MultiSport

If you put a lot of work into your golf game and want the best indoor golf net, the Net Return Pro is the right option for you.

This 8′ x 7.6′ x 3.6′ net comes with a 1.5″ powder-coated aluminum frame to provide durability and stainless steel push buttons for easy setup and takedown without using any screws, nuts, and bolts.

The net is made strong by using UV-protected commercial-grade polyester material that guarantees 250,000 shots, and it can be used for multiple sports.

It weighs around 28 pounds, which makes it portable and allows you to practice golf wherever you want. 

A duffel bag comes with the package so you can protect your net from dust and store it easily.

The coolest feature of this practice net is that it absorbs every shot and returns the ball to your feet so you can constantly practice your shots while improving your stance.

Coming to its utility, it can be used anywhere, from your backyard to your garage. You can even use it with your home golf simulator system.

The Net Return Pro requires a handsome amount of money to spend, but if you’re serious about your golf game, it will benefit you in the years to come.

Pros

✅ Automatic ball return feature
✅ Durable aluminum frame
✅ UV-protected polyester netting
✅ Easy storage 
✅ Can be used both indoor and outdoor
✅ Can be used with a home simulator 

Cons

❌ Expensive

Runner-Up Indoor Golf Net: Spornia Spg-7 Golf Practice Net 

The Spornia Spg-7 golf practice net stands as the runner-up of the day not only because of its popularity but also because of its amazing features that you wouldn’t want to miss.

This 7′ x 9′ indoor golf net features a 60″ x 60″ large target area with roof addition to catch every shot you play, and its automatic ball return feature lets you play your shots without leaving your stance. 

A bonus feature that comes with it is the adjustable chipping ring that allows you to do chipping and pitching practice.

To improve your game, the Spornia Spg-7 comes with patterned guided sheets that correct your ball path, swing path, putting stroke, and stance alignment.

Made of a high-quality UV-protected mesh material that withstands many shots and different climate conditions without any sign of wear, this golf net tends to last a little longer. Even if you plan to practice with real golf balls, it is ready to handle that.

The only drawback of this practice net is that it’s not great in heavy winds, so you’ll have to bear that in mind when purchasing it. 

When it comes to its utility, you have plenty of options, from outdoor to indoor setups, which are made possible by its ultra-portable nature that allows you to assemble and disassemble it quickly.

This net is more in the higher price range, but it’s something that will not just give you a good hitting experience but also “teach” you golf with all its features and guidelines. 

Fair enough!

Pros

✅ Ultra portable
✅ Roof addition
✅ Durable mesh material with UV protection
✅ Automatic ball return
✅ Can be used both indoor and outdoor
✅ Comes with patterned guidelines

Cons

❌ Not good in winds
❌ Relatively high price

Best Budget Indoor Golf Net: GoSports Golf Practice Hitting Nets

GoSports is not a contestant for some of the premium-quality indoor golf nets available out there, but it’s Amazon’s Choice in its own category of best-budget practice hitting nets.

The nylon material used in this net provides UV protection, waterproofing, and overall fair quality so you can practice a little while longer. 

Even with the budget price range, the GoSports practice net comes with an automatic ball return feature. It catches your golf ball softly and delivers it back to your feet so you can avoid the hassle of retrieving your ball every time while practicing. 

No more chasing balls!

Portability is enhanced by its lightweight build that allows easy setup and breakdown that gives you the freedom to practice wherever you want. You can also squeeze it in a bag and take it anywhere, anytime.

But hey, don’t expect too much! 

Despite all these cool features, it has some shortcomings, including its lightweight design that can’t withstand heavy winds and its inability to be used with a simulator system. 

GoSports comes in three different variants, depending on your need:

  • Standard 10′ x 7′ Golf Net
  • Standard 7′ x 7′ Golf Net
  • Pro 10′ x 7′ Golf Net

All these variants offer similar features, except for the pro variant that comes with a bull’s-eye to align your shots to the center.

Pros

✅ Budget-friendly
✅ Lightweight and portable
✅ Easy to assemble
✅ Waterproof material
✅ Automatic ball return

Cons

❌ Not great with heavy winds
❌ Not premium built
❌ Can’t be used with a golf simulator

Notable Mention: Rukket Haack Golf Net

This minimal-looking indoor golf net caught my eye when I heard SEC professional coach Chriss Haack recommending it as “it’s the last net you will ever need.” 

This huge 10′ x 7′ net allows you to practice freely by capturing almost every shot you play, and with its signature ball return feature, every ball you play comes right at your feet so you can practice for continuous hours.

Durability is made robust by knotless netting that’s designed to play real golf balls and a solid frame that allows it to withstand different wind conditions. 

Rukket nets can be used for both indoor and outdoor practice sessions. Thanks to their lightweight, portable, and easy-to-set-up design, they save you those costly trips to the driving range. 

To ensure the quality of the product, Rukket Sports provides Rukket FairPlay Guarantee & Rukket Lifetime Guarantee. No risk purchasing!

But the product also has some limitations, which include poor instructions for assembly, so you’ll have to figure it out yourself, and if you intend to use it with a simulator, there’s no option for that.

In terms of price, it’s surprisingly cheaper than what it delivers.

Pros

✅ Huge size
✅ Robust quality
✅ Automatic ball return
✅ Value for money

Cons

❌ Can’t be used with a golf simulator
❌ Poor instructions for assembly

Indoor Golf Nets Buying Guide 

Various factors affect the functionality of a product. The same goes for practice nets. So it would be really helpful to ponder on the following factors before you make a purchase.

Durability

Golf practice nets cost a handsome amount of money, so you should look for a quality product and a net that’s strong enough to hold the ball. 

Portability & Storage

Setting up and taking down a practice net can be a mess if you don’t go for the right pick. Select a practice net that is easy to assemble and doesn’t break down in the process. 

Storing the net is also a tricky task as it tends to accumulate dust. Look for a practice net that’s dust repellant and easy to clean.

Budget

The budget comes as an important element in buying practice nets. The more you spend, the more you get, but don’t spend too much and seek value for money in your choice.

Final Thoughts

Now that you have learned enough to select an indoor golf net for you, I’ll finish this with some product recommendations based on their pros and cons and the buying guide.

The Net Return Pro and Spornia Spg-7 are the best golf nets out there, but if you’re not willing to spend a lot for a practice net, Rukket Haack is a good deal. 

Before you buy, bear in mind that you can’t compare the quality of an expensive net with a cheap net, but you can prioritize your needs and buy the one that falls in your criteria.

Catch you in the next one!
