It doesn’t matter whether you just don’t want to go to the golf drive or you just literally want to stay at home with the family while still play golf. A garden golf net will be exactly the item that you need to keep practicing but at the same time balance your life outside and in.

PGA Tour Pro Size Driving Net with Carry Bag

I really like the PGA Tour Pro Size Driving Net with Carry Bag because it’s strong and sturdy and built with extremely good materials. It’s quick and easy to assemble and the colour coordinated sections make it so easy to follow that you really could be a child and put the thing together. That means that if you’ve got a garden that’s particularly cramped you just want to get the golf net in and out all the time, it’s really easy just to pop it up and pop it down as and when you please. It means that you literally got a couple of minutes just to set up and it won’t be a problem for you at all. It has a very useful target area of around 214 cm high by 305cm wide this gives you plenty of room to shoot the net and generally speaking you won’t miss and that important for safety.

One of these are really like about the PGA Tour Pro Size Driving Net with Carry Bag though, it comes with a little bit of an artificial turf section which means that if you fancied practicing your chipping rather than driving it means that you could do so as well.

FORB Portable Golf Net

The FORB Portable Golf Net is Arguably my best choice because it’s really well built and it’s completely designed just for driving. And it’s very very quick and light weight and easy to set up. It goes without saying that this is super easy assembly because he’s very straightforward and it folds away minutes literally meaning the assembly leaves more time for practice after all.

One of the best things about the football golf near was the fact that I was able to have the delivery literally next day. I ordered it about 8 p.m. one evening and received it about 6 a.m. the next day. That means that basically I got my delivery within a short space of about 10 hours which is incredible for a garden golf net.

Golf Chipping Net by Longridge

I actually bought the Garden Golf Chipping Net by Longridge. Amazing release brilliant little Chip in it only cost me about 8 quid and it actually served me very well. Basically setup in literally seconds compared to the other ones and of course that means even more time for practice and less time messing around. If it in almost any single garden and it gives you the option just to practice short game more than The Long Game. Personally I think it’s a much better things to do in the back garden because it’s a lot safer and causes you a lot less grief so overall the Garden golf chipping there’s absolutely ideal. Basically it meant I could spend an awful lot more time with my family and I was overly pleased with the fact that I didn’t have to go to the golf range just so I could do a bit of practice chipping. I will say that it’s not absolutely ideal if you want to play around 30 to 50 yards, but the bottom line is depending on the size of your garden that might be in play anyway. It just so happens I’ve got a really small garden and this was really practical for me. If I had a bigger garden though definitely go with something that would allow me to sort a 30 to 50 yard range to play around but unfortunately don’t and so this is what I’ve got and I’m sticking with it. As far as garden golf this is absolutely ideal as far as I’m concerned.

Using Golf As An Educational Platform

Golf is a sport which has always split opinion; either loved or loathed, it is rare to come across someone who is indifferent to golf as a spectacle. Famously, Oscar Wilde once said that “golf is a good walk spoiled” and there is no better quotation to show the kind of divide there is when looking at the sport. However, if you are a fan who happens to have young children, it may be worthwhile trying to get them involved in playing from an early age. Not only can such family activities act as a bonding exercise, but also there are plenty of educational aspects to the game which children would profit from in the long term.

Maths – Getting Your Head Around the Scoring System

Golf is one of the few sports where achieving a low score is the aim of the game, with each hole on the eighteen hole circuit given a par, or a number of shots it is expected to take the average player to complete the hole in. This is then added up over the course of the entire game to create a final score, which will hopefully see the player achieve a negative score, meaning they were able to complete the holes in front of them in fewer shots than it was expected.

With mathematics being one of the most vital skills children are taught at school, it is important that parents put their children in situations outside of a school context where they can apply the kind of analytical thinking they are expected to show during the week and golf enables this. By letting your child keep score throughout the day’s play, there is a strong possibility you will witness an increased understanding of the mathematical curriculum they are tested on throughout their time at school.

Geography – Great Weather for It

Golf also differs from a large majority of sports in that is held entirely outdoors, rather than in a stadium or arena where the roof can be closed if weather is not ideal for the necessary conditions. For example, the majority of stadiums used in the FIFA World Cup tournaments now have roofs which can be closed in advance of a match if the weather forecast predicts poor conditions. As golf does not enjoy this luxury, players are often seen playing in difficult conditions, whether it be heavy rain or strong winds.

By introducing children to golf at an early age, they are likely to begin taking an interest in weather forecasts when they are looking to head off for a round of golf during the weekend. This will increase their own understanding of certain geographical issues surrounding the weather and could in fact inspire them to look into specialising in such an area at a later time in life. With the weather being a stable part of the geography curriculum at schools, having an interest in this area from childhood is likely to mean this area of the syllabus at least will be something your child would thrive in.

This educational aspect to the sport is something which is often overlooked, but if you can interest your children from an early age they are likely to reap the rewards, and of course the more they play, the better they will be. Before you know it you may be in need of some storage room for the golf trophies they are accumulating, and of course, this will increase their self-esteem levels, which is another vital aspect of growing up. All in all, involving you child in golf early seems to be a ‘no brainer’.
