Fantastic net and exceptional service. Placed my order and within 15 minutes had the shipping and tracking email arrive in my inbox. Net arrived two days later and assembly is as easy as is shown on the videos. Can't recommend this net or the company highly enough!
Simply the best quality & design!
Fantastic p excellent customer service Higly recommended
I've bought a lot of nets to hit into but this by far is the best. I originally meant to set up outside but when I found how easy it was to put up and take down I started using it in my garage with my launch monitor. I literally use it practically everyday. I just take 4 sides down and place on the side of my garage when done. Still allows me to park both cars inside. Takes me about 3 min to set up and take down. Well worth the money and if I ever wear it out I'll buy another net(net only)

We bought this for the family to use and have had for 3 months now. It took us a little while to set it up they way we wanted; but, we now have it lined up the way we want and it works great! From Amazon, we purchased the Net Return Pro and a 5x5 Country Club Elite Reel Feel Golf Mat. To fill in the rest of the area (lighter green, I picked up a putting green carpet from a specialized rug company (Amazon didn’t have the dimensions I was looking for). A putting rug was significantly less thick than the Reel Feel golf mat; so, I bought some Drivore R+ insulated subfloor panels to go under and elevate the putting green around the golf mat. Amazon doesn’t carry the Net Return side panels; so, we bought those directly from the manufacturer (Rain or Shine Golf). As you can see from the photo, we have very high ceilings in our unfinished basement. Make sure the area you are planning for your net has high enough ceilings that you can easily swing your clubs!
Wonderful net!!! Our son uses it everyday to practice his golf. Thank you Boulder for the quick shipment!
Decent product, works as advertised. That said wildly overpriced for what it is. What really gets me is that at a $600 price point there's no mat included. Should be complete out of the box for that amount IMO.
The best Net I have ever used. Returns as intended. Very strong and loving it so far. My practice time has increased. My son and I are taking turns and working together on our game.
It stated no barriers or mat included. So please read and do not complain. The product paid for it self. I go to the driving range at 2x a week at $26...so do the math....
Easy to assemble. Net is heavy duty, and should last a long time.
I purchased this net years ago and unfortunately we damaged a piece (our fault) and could not use it anymore. I contacted net return to see if they might have the piece. They responded within hours and the piece was on its way the same day. Really nice staff, terrific customer service, and a fantastic net.
This this is extremely well built. I've had mine for two years now and it's really still looking brand new. The net is really strong and it is really good at softly catching the golf ball and gently rolling it back to you. I use mine in the garage (barely fits height-wise) with the SkyTrak and a ProMatte... and it's really the Bomb diggety. I highly recommend Jack Nicolaus' Perfect Golf. It's really fun to play the same courses that they're playing on the PGA pro Tour. Very realistic. No Problems with my Net Return Pro Series--- not one problem.
Super easy to assemble. Very well made. Works as advertised. I’m very pleased with this product!!
Net return works exactly as advertised. Simple setup - quality materials. Would buy again.
Stand alone net that delivers what was promised
The golfers in my family say this is the best golf net on the market.
Works as intended, and returns the ball just like it should. People that state the ball doesn't get returned to the hitter, are probably hitting too far away from the net, or hitting the ball poorly. Will get great results once you get that swing down and good contact.
Ha ha ha this thing is the badest thing I've bought in a long time, the 1st weekend I had it, I wore my arms out, I saw a huge improvement in my swing already, great for working on your mechanics, the net is awesome. it's pretty quiet so you are not bothering anyone. Get it if you really want a good net. So far zero complaints.
Best net.. no questions. Just order it already.

A great product. Customer service is outstanding. No need to go to Florida to play golf this winter. The product delivers as does the golf when it hits the net!
Took me 9 minutes to set it up the first time. It's excellent quality and returns the balls as advertised.
This is as advertised. Very simple to assemble and disassemble. Each Aluminum post is color coded. All you have to do is match the colors. Very simple. The net works well, although I don't think the balls come back very well, but that isn't the reason I bought the Golf net. The Pro series is nice and large. I am enjoying it very much.
I purchase my Net Return approximately 8 or 9 years ago, and have loved it ever since. I even purchased a Pro Series Net Return as a present for my identical twin brother. Unfortunately, it was recently damaged when workman struck it with a 4 wheeler. 2 of the poles needed replacement. I called the company and spoke to one of the owners who informed me that they no longer stocked the poles I needed, as the frame design had been changed to allow for a smaller storage/transportation bag. He suggested I purchase a complete new frame at a cost of $295! He did not offer any discount from the off-the-street price. I was very disappointed at this Company which prides itself in its' customer support.
I've banged balls in the Pro Series net now for 5 years. I have not needed to replace a single item. I have hit some poor shots and dented up a few frame pieces, there is some wear starting to show with metal holes stretching out where the frame pieces lock together, some of the color coded stickers are starting to wear, but all in all still trucking today and has worked as intended since day one. From everything I see, it doesn't look like its going to break down anytime soon either. Being able to hit real balls with every club into this net has saved me thousands of dollars I would have spent at the driving range. The only critical thing I have to say is that I am never able to get the entire set back into the storage bag AND zip it shut. It's annoying.
great product. look no further. I love it, my friends love it. the ball comes right back to you.
The pictures representing this product is very deceiving. First off I'd have to say for anyone that thinks this comes with a hitting matt think again. The hitting matt is seperate from the product so don't let the pictures fool you. Second of all the hitting matt that you have to buy seperately is not the same that's shown on the picture either. The matt is much smaller so once again the picture is very deceiving. And third of all the video shows a side net that prevents balls from hitting objects left or right of the net but you can't seem to order one and of course it doesn't come with the net. Due to the fact nothing in the picture is accurate other than the net return itself I would rate this as a false advertisement. The money spent isn't worth what you get and the accessories you get are not worth it either. I would say if you could actually get the accessories shown in the pictures and videos I would rate this much higher but I was decieved. Please review and read before finalizing the order don't do what I did and just buy it because the pictures. Way over priced for what you get. I'm almost considering returning everything. UPDATED REVIEW: I have to say I wasn't expecting a response back from this review at all, however not only was I contacted but I was impressed by the quick response. I was fortunate enough to speak with the owner and he addressed the concerns I had and even shared some ideas on how he would update the pics so people like myself don't have this misunderstanding in the future. He explained the mat I purchased wasn't the correct one and the accessories can be bought on the actual website. Due to the quick response and listening to my concerns I would have to rate this overall experience and product five stars. The net return itself is an amazing concept, I use it to enhance my golf swing and my 6 year old son uses it for his soccer. It definitely works the way it's intended to work. Thanks Paul for listening.
easy to set up; sturdy
I set up the Net Return in my garage and it fits perfectly! Set up was a breeze too. The way they have the color system on the frame is great. I had this thing completely set up in about 5 minutes. Really enjoying the option of practicing in my own home when the weather isn't so good and I can't get to the range or when I just want to hit a few balls at night after the kids go to bed.
Nice, sturdy and use it every day

I have owned many golf nets over the years. My most important request is quality, ease of assembly, and will I be able to place in my garage and have it not take up so much room i can't get my car in without having to take apart. Well this net does all of that and returns the ball back to your feet. The biggest plus for me is it doesn't take you a lot of depth. Also one last thing I had to call the manufacturer and the owner answered the phone! He was absolutly the best guy to talk to and I am so happy I have purchased this net...
Works great. Quiet compared to a golf projection screen.
Best golf item I have bought to date. I can hit balls confidently without any fear of breaking anything. Well built clean and very easy to setup. I thought, initially, that it was too expensive, now that I got it and used it I love it. Driver speed 114MPH, 6 Iron 95 MPH no fear of it going through...
Had it for two years having ware on corners but it stay outside all year.
Very nice quality and pretty simple to set up.
Best golf training product on the planet. Great customer service.
Easy to setup, pretty stable. I have hit several thousand shots into it and can probably beat Jordan Spieth at the moment, my game has improved so much.
Highend frame and net. Soft sound as the golf ball, baseball and football impact the net. Our son got this for his birthday and we set it up yesterday while he was at school. After coming home from football he has already spent an hour on it kicking the football and hitting off of his soft toss system for baseball... This is going to be used a lot by all of us in the house!!! In a garage bay at this time but we are considering putting it in our kids playroom. It is BIG just an FYI!!!
Works as advertised. Sends the ball back. Need something to cushion the floor and slow it down but that's minor. So easy to assemble I did it without the instructions using the color codes tape on the sections parts. I wanted to use it in the garage but was concerned about all the assembly and dis-assembly. No problem. It is wide enough for the car hood to pass between the uprights. I just lift the net about half way up and secure witha bungees.

My Net Return Pro Series arrived about two weeks ago. It was very easy to set up and it performs exactly as advertised. I have it in my garage this winter and it's a great way to practice my swing. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great golf/multi sport net.
This is a great indoor golf net. The ball returns as advertises. I use a different mat with it but still works fine. My daughter practices her volleyball serves in it when I'm not hitting balls. I've told my golf buddies to get one of these nets and start hitting away. Here in the Midwest, there isn't much opportunity for outdoor golf in the winter months.
Love this so much.
Just got it tonight and felt this product deserved my sincere review. Solid construction. Took me less than 5 minutes to put together, and even less time to take it apart and store again. Easy big pieces with color combo setup is great help. I got to what I wanted to, which is hitting ball in the comfort of my home and not fiddling around with a net. Thank you for making a quality net that I am sure will serve me for many years.
This net is amazing. My neighbors might hate that I hit golf ball after golf ball into all summer long, but my golf game has LOVED it. The product is first class. Constructed amazingly well. It's easy to set up, and take down, though I haven't taken mine down once yet. One more note, my wife was slightly worried it would blow over during a big rainstorm, but we've had several and the thing hasn't moved at all. Awesome product. Works exactly as advertised.
Read about this in the review since many golf nets didn't seem to hold up at all. Very happy. Arrived very quickly

I ordered this net directly from the manufacturer and couldn't be more please with it. I've had this net for over 6 months and it works flawlessly. After taking a daily beating, I see no signs of wear on it at all. This is the 3rd net I've owned and it is head and shoulders better then the rest. The ball return capability is worth more than you can imagine. This one is worth every penny! Go ahead and pull the trigger.
This net is pretty fantastic. Like all the other reviews mentioned it is true to its advertising. But the quality is there which I appreciate and extremely easy to setup (it's color coded). Looks and seems durable.
Firstly, Amazon went above and beyond to fix the shipping fiasco. Apparently the item got lost or otherwise not at my doorstep the day it was supposed to, so kudos to Amazon customer support for doing what they could to placate me and make me feel better. Now, about the product. The Net Return Pro Series is a great product. It's made in America which is a great thing. However, I assembled the unit today. When I took it out of the great looking duffle bag I was expecting to see pristine metal poles with high quality stickers which help aid the assembling process. What I saw was scuffed up metal poles that looked as if the item had been used and returned and I got that unit. The stickers that are there to aid in the assembly process look worn and are actually coming off. As long as I don't disassemble the unit I don't have to worry about the stickers coming off. I am going to use a Sharpie and mark the poles so when I do disassemble the unit I'll know where each pole goes. Now, don't get me wrong, I understand that the metal poles will bang against each other during shipment, but any other item that I have ordered from every other place that makes anything worth buying, they seem to package their things with care and pride instead of just throwing the things in the included carrying accessory. For 500 bucks, I was half expecting the item to be shiny and sing to me when I opened it (that's just me) but what I got looks used. The functionality of the Net Return is great. I plan to get the other accessories in order to use it as a Simulator Series Net Return...which gives me an opportunity to get on my soap box. The Net Return company has yet to respond to any of my emails or comments on their Facebook page. I understand that they are trying to make money. They are probably making a great deal with this product, however, if you are in the market to get the simulator series that they offer, I would recommend buying it piece meal instead of spending 2000 and still needing to get extra stuff. The company has yet to respond to my questions pertaining to why it cost so much and still is incomplete??? Ok...I digress. All in all, the product is great, is packaged by the Net Return company extremely poorly making it look like we are fools for buying a product that arrives looking like they just slapped something together. But aesthetics aside, it works great.
Product is very well made, easy to setup. Vendor has a good selection of supporting videos and instructional documentation on their website, if you need it. But out of the box, and reading the enclosed "how to", it took me less than ten minutes to set it up the first time and I can see once you have done this a few times, you could cut the time in half. My decision to buy the Net Return was based on their 30 day money back guarantee, and the one year warranty and their detail replacement product listing that I found on their website. On May 17th, I bought a net from another vendor that lasted 34 days, pricey but of very poor quality. In comparison, there is no comparison, the Net Return product is superior hands down. And, perhaps, best of all it's made in the USA and not some cheap China import. The quality of the product shows in every detail, from the shipping packaging to the tutorials on setting it up. It is the "Best of the Breed".
I love it and wish I would of had it twenty years ago. Any one that likes to hit golf balls buy one and enjoy.
Works great, have it in back yard. if you hit a straight shot the ball come right back. buy a good mat, it will save your elbows and writst. VERY Happy with this
Broke down and spent the money on this net and it's been money well spent. I have it set up in my garage and hit off a mat, and have literally hit thousands of balls into it. You won't have to go to the range anymore once owning it, the feedback from the net lets you know if you've hit a slice or a hook by the way it spins coming off of the netting, and the ball comes back to you after each shot, so only one ball is needed. It allows you to practice hitting the clubs you struggle with, and I can honestly say my handicap is better because of it.
My apologies to the Net Return Company - Life got in the way of my follow up review. After I submitted my review below, the Net Return company sent me another. You can't beat that for customer service. They stood by their product. I have a 3 car garage with the 3rd car slot empty, so we bring it in after use (it's not heavy). Thank you Net Return. This product really helps my daughter practice. I bought this for my daughter - she plays competitive soccer. It was expensive, and at first it was great. After a year (we keep it outside), the frame began to seriously wobble side to side and the net housing started splitting into strips around the aluminum tubes. I had to make sure we laid it down when she was done so it wouldn't topple onto someone or something. Now it just tilts to one side when we set it upright. I took the net off to see if any of the tubes were disconnected, but they weren't. What I did find was that the aluminum around the button that holds two tubes together started to split. The jagged edge of the aluminum cut into the net housing, which - surprise, surprise - was the reason why the net housing split. I could've bought the cheap ones and replaced it annually for what this cost.
I was very impressed with the simple and quick assembly ( 15 min ) and the net works perfectly, thank you.
What a great product!! The Net Return is extremely easy to assemble & operates in the capacity depicted in the videos on their website. I've assembled the net in my basement and surprisingly hitting into it is quieter then I had expected. I've read some of the reviews regarding a durable mat to hit off of into the net. I've researched many mats & strongly suggest a company called Tartan Turf based out of Canada. The Champion Turf model is commercial grade & all anyone would need to create the optimal experience indoors. A bit expensive but I assure you well worth it...especially if you're a nutty golfer like me!! Just my thoughts & I hope this post helps!!
I live in NJ and could visit the production facility before purchase. Off the bat, all the reviews about great service turned out to be true. The CEO (I think) actually drove in front to the location when I showed up at the wrong address. He demoed the setting up the net, timing at 5 min start to finish. At home I could do it in 8 min. The net works as advertised, returns the ball right back. I strongly recommend this product. Hope the customer service remains 5 star.
This was one of the best and most durable golf nets I have ever had. This has outlasted all of my previous golf nets.
This was a gift to my brother who loves to play, but has little time because of his job. He is thrilled with it.
So there are a lot of reviews from people who live in cold places and can only golf seasonally. This review is from the perspective of a person who lives in a warm place with year round golf. I also am writing from the perspective of someone who does not have to pay for the driving range above an annual club fee. Despite these golf advantages I purchased the Pro Series Multi Sport Net and have found it very useful. First of all, it is an american based small business which is nice for me and perhaps for some other potential customers. When I say small business, I got the CEO/founder on the phone when I called to clear up a shipping issue. The issue was quickly cleared up to my satisfaction. The net is built from super robust materials and it looks like it will last forever. I am not particularly handy and was able to set it up easily. The various tubes have colored tape at their ends to help you know which other tube to connect it to. No screws or tools are needed. I got the side nets which have definitively caught a few sliced shots. I initially set up indoors after moving into my new place and the net worked great with real golf balls. I am a rookie so not all shots were long and straight. I chickened out having it in the same room as a flat screen tv with real balls and used it with wiffle balls for a long time before moving it to a space where I wasn't going to hit anything of value. I have never used it outdoors but have thought that it might make a good prop at a party. The net is very sturdy and if you hit your ball reasonably straight it will roll back to you. Errors in your shot path can be deduced from how the return roll deviates from straight. I have found the net useful in bad weather but also in good weather. Let's face it, a game of golf is best followed by a day at the range and the net is a distant third. So if the weather is nice and I have time, I am getting out of the house and onto the course. The net comes in handy for bad weather. It also comes in handy to come home and practice with a club that betrayed you on the range or to try and get the hang of a seldom used club. It is very easy to disassemble and the carrying case accommodates the side nets as well as the main net. I particularly like leaving it assembled as it has a tendency to inspire a few swings in moments of boredom. It also has training potential. You can have a coach stand in front of your swing path and he will remain safe. It also opens up opportunities to video your swing and spot flaws. The one thing that I would consider, knowing what I know now is whether or not to get their net which is paired with video golf simulators. I am still reading about them but if it sounds like something you might like it might make more sense to spring for the extra cost up front. I wish they had some way to expand up to that type of set up from the original net. This is my first net, so I can't compare it to their competition. I would highly recommend this one. It is solid and functional.
i receive the net just in time, cool thanks. i play outside, inside is just amazing. i can play softly or with strong, the net stop the ball. my children love to. playing soccer is cool.
now I can practice my swing without damage anything, and my kids can practice their sports in the same place.
Had this net for about 15 months already. Love this product, has helped me out tremendously with my golf game. Costs a lot but has already paid for itself on money saved from the range. Hit 80-120 balls a day, 2-3 times a week, that is well over 10000 balls hit. If paying $7 for every 100 balls that is already 700 dollars. I can run through my whole bag in less than 30 minutes.

this is the best of the best if you shopping for a net, it really does return the ball to you which is great for irons and wedges, i have this in my garage and its heated so this allows me to swing all winter attempt to get better, its also great to hit some shots before you hit the course. This company is amazing too, you call the answer all your questions are nice doing it. I love to see great products and great companies, if your shopping for a net buy this one and save hassle.
Yes, it is probably the most expensive net you can find, but it s money well spent. Good solid construction, easy to assemble and works great in my garage!
I was skeptical at first but purchased it to see for myself. They are a bit overpriced but combined with the Real Feel Golf Mats hopefully worth it since I live in the Northern Chicago Suburbs. I bought it to save on gas money to practice ranges, expensive range balls and to keep me out the cold or out of the limited flight practice domes. The Net gives you instant feedback as advertised. Their or other ways to catch your ball but I do not know of how to get the same type of feedback and just use one ball until its bursts. It is very easy to assemble and take down. The net is very durable also. I just wish they were not so expensive. But I guess water under the bridge now.

The sturdy poles have snap together securely and the set-up was quick. I ended up needing to return the net because I misjudged having enough space for it. The manufacturer gladly accepted the return and even refunded the shipping, which is not cheap. I'm writing this review because I was impressed with the product, but more so because I was impressed with the customer services experience on the return. I spoke with the owner on a Saturday and he was a true class act. He even refunded the funds before I'd even shipped back the product and said "no rush". I couldn't believe it.
I purchased this for the indoor golf practice. The set-up was really easy as advertised. It took me only 10 minutes for my first try. The structure is stable and the net is durable. The net catches every ball and quitely retures to my feets (Very clever!!). I didn't purchase the side nets, but I fully swing with confidence. Couldn't be happier with this buy.
Set up as a breeze and works perfectly. Highly recommend. Starting using it today, and the ball comes right back to you everytime
The net does return the ball nicely but if you use the net as i do, you will eventually have issues with holes. I use my net daily and it is already wearing. The first time this happened i called the manufacturer and they sent me another one instantly. Now Im having the same issues and they cant believe it. It felt like they thought i was lying about it. I was asked questions about squirrels and rats maybe possibly sabotaging it....lol Really? All i do is beat golf balls into it for a couple hours a day. I was also asked things like, "what kind of ball am i using." I use premium golf balls, the same i use on the golf course. If this thing is legit, it shouldn't matter if i hit rocks into it. This product is great for someone that occasionally hits balls, but not for someone that really works on there game as i do. Eventually, the net will wear holes. The sad thing is i don't even hit woods or my driver into it. Irons only. Thats a lot of money for a net net that has lasted less than five months. I have to send them the net for inspection. That will determine if i get another one. Either way, i'll post another review. Shortly after posting this review, I received a phone call personally from the owner of The Net Return. He was irate about the way I was treated and reminded me customers are dearly valued. Then, he overnighted me another net. It's not every day you hear from any CEO with regards to customer service. They usually have someone else call to rectify situations similar to mine. That alone is reason enough to business with this company. Not to mention they build the nets right here in the USA. As for my golf game, this idea is awesome using one ball that comes back to you. It is definitely stronger than the typical nets you buy anywhere. In addition to that, my ball striking has improved tremendously.
This product is one of the most fun items I have purchased for myself. I find myself seting it up and using it as entertainment when the weather is decent and we are grilling in the yard. I put the product up and down everytime I use it and find the ease of assembly / disassembly as stated. Nice touch to keep the backyard clear for other activities. I have no doubt from the construction that it could be left standing without any issues. I have used everyclub in my bag and found that the net return stops them all and returns them as advertised. The feedback of the ball coming back at you, while not as good as full ball flight, has helped my golf game improve. I would recommend this product to anyone looking to purchase a practice net.
I needed a new net for hitting golf balls, but I also wanted to be able to let my son use it for hitting baseballs and pitching practice. My old Izzo net needed replacement because many of the clips had shattered from hits. In addition, it was never sturdy enough for baseballs. I did research on many nets that were cheaper in price, but none seemed to be any where near the quality, feature and function of the NetReturn. The reviews I read were all positive as well. I am happy to say that I purchased the product about 1 month ago and have been very satisfied with the product. I also purchased the 10'x6' Pro Turf and it is a very high quality product. I also researched the turf separately but it is very hard to find the turf in that size. The reason I wanted the large turf, was for the ball return feature. You can tell if your hits are off center by the roll-back of the ball to the hitting spot. If you don't have the turf, it would be more difficult for the ball to roll back correctly. I enjoy practice a lot more not having to using a full basket of golf balls. I purchased the Pro Golf Package that also includes the side rails for the occasional mis-hit. My son has been using the net for baseball on a regular basis and it works great. I have not taken it down and tried it outside yet, but expect it will work great.
We recently installed a putting green and driving mat in our yard. The installer suggested a 10x10x10 product from Cimarron that he bought and uses at his own house. I checked it out, along with options from Callaway, Izzo, and a few others. I read as many of the reviews that I could find on the products to see which ones were rated the best and while noting what some of the negative comments referenced (Quality of the net, set up time, poor workmanship, etc) in the reviews. I also considered price, as some were significantly cheaper in price than others. I was surprised to see that the reviews on "The Net Return" were all fives. There always seems to be one review that comes back without a 100% (5 star) approval rating. I thought maybe the company had a bunch of friends post all high marks to boost their product and increase sales. The price was also a little more than I thought I should spend on a net but kept going back to the reviews that talked about the quality of the net and the overall product. It is one of the higher priced golf nets available but after going back and forth I finally ordered the product with regular delivery (no rush) and received the product five days later. It took me about 15 minutes to set up the net using their color coded parts and was hitting irons and woods soon thereafter. I am extremely happy with the quality of the net. It is very thick and in my opinion will last a very long time. Finally, the fact that this high quality product is made here in the U.S. means a lot to me. Great Job "Net Return." P.S. My son can also use his tee or do soft toss to hit baseballs and kick soccer balls. So the net has multiple uses.
This product has the best design out there. First off, it's huge and the net quality is top of the line. The assembly is genius. Color coated pieces are great but the way the net folds and unfolds is brilliant. So incrediably easy. I purchased the full system with the 6'x10' hitting mat and side nets. The hitting mat is good and just as good as what they use at the private country club around the corner. Plenty thick and absorbs fat hits. This whole system can be left up or taken down pretty fast. Everything is stored in one handy duffle bag that is included. Sand bags are very impressive/heavy duty. Really the guys didn't skip at all. The frame is tough but really light weight. The way it sits though keeps it from falling over and it is very stable. The costumer service was great. Gave us a military discount and threw in a few extra accessories at no cost. It is pricer but I prefer it to cages and definately worth the extra price over all of the cheap 75-150 dollar nets out there. Currently every review has five stars!!!!!-It's because 6 stars is not an option.
4 stars works perfectly 1 reccomendation a garage size unit would be a great feature a 3 foot wide unit would work just fine
I've been using my NetReturn for a little more than a year and it is just great. It allows me to practice anytime virtually anywhere. I use it on an outdoor patio when the weather is warm enough and in the garage otherwise. I think the frame will last a lifetime. The net may eventually need to be replaced but I would estimate 20 years of usage before this would be necessary. I have not tried any of the other net devices but I find it hard to believe that anything could be much better than this device. Based on my year of usage I would suggest: 1. Some sort of mat to hit off of. I use a plastic 'grass' door mat from Home Depot. When this wears out I'm going to invest in a driving range mat. Note that I actually use two of these mats, one to stand on, one to hit off of. 2. Wind will blow the NetReturn over. On windy days I use a couple of concrete blocks to keep it upright. I tip it over and let it rest on the patio when not in use. 3. The ball will only return directly to you if it hits near the center of the net. Actually, a good thing. Instant feed back on the quality of the shot. 4. The assembly instructions that come with the NetReturn are hard to understand. I had to take a look at the online assembly instructions to understand how to do it. Once I understood the process it went together easily. I would recommend the NetReturn as a great golf learning aid. Edited 1/12/2015 I highly praised the Net Return two years ago. I still think it is the best golf net available but recently my experience with the company has soured me on the product. After three years of average use (4-6 hours a week) the welds on the right side of the frame failed, making the net unusable. Two emails to the company asking if they sold spare parts or if they could recommend a local welding company that could fix the frame went unanswered. I can no longer recommend this product because of the apparent lack of interest in my situation by the company. I have changed my original rating of five stars to two stars. caveat emptor.
This is the best golf net you will ever buy. Don't bother with cheaper models. They can't compare. This net works as described and better. There is little net deflection so the net can be used easily indoors. Ball returns each time. The assembly is so easy you only need to match the color codes. The support is made of large aluminum tubing, not flimsy bending thin fiberglass that must be bent and can break. I have had other nets and they are cheaply made in comparison. Don't waste your time or money on any other net.
Just as other reviewers have stated the net is great. Easy to set-up. High quality aluminum tubing construction and netting. I've been using it without the sides without any problems--even a couple bad shanks the net caught. I got the net in combination with the dura pro mat--the mat is awesome too--better than any crap you get at the driving ranges. I have it set-up outdoors--went for a few days without any weighting on the frame but it will blow over with a little wind. Only need one ball to practice. Having the net is like having a mini range at home. Would highly recommend it to any golf lover. There is a reason all the reviews are five out of five.
Superb. I set it up in 10 minutes - easy color coded attachments and no tools. Very stable and does exactly what it says!

I purchased my net through the manufacturer only because I could use my PayPal account. Same price though. Anyway, I could not be more pleased with this product. It is very well built and solid. The aluminum tubing is easily inch and half which makes it very strong and stable even without any sandbags holding it down, which is recommended for outdoor use. With the color coding and quick release system it assembles quickly just using the picture. However, I still recommend watching the video on the manufacturer's web site the first time since there are some good tips that will help with the setup. It's very light and easy to move around when assembled, but I do recommend having someone help so you don't put unnecessary stress on the tubes. I use it in my driveway hitting off a standard range mat I got from a friend and a piece of carpet running to the net and the ball returns to the mat as advertised. If you hit consistently straight, you only need one ball. Although if you like to hold your follow thru a little, or practice this as part of your regimen, the ball might roll by. I ended up cutting a few 2x4s and strategically placing them in places to coral the balls that tend to get away. The net does provide feedback for miss-hit shots too and if hit badly enough they can get away as well. To me not enough to warrant the side panels unless you worried about hitting something if you shank a shot - which can happen. I went without. It's not the cheapest net that is for sure, but it is very well crafted and the netting material is very thick and strong. I see this thing lasting a lifetime - and it's made in the USA. All that makes it worth ever penny to me. I can highly recommend this product. Take a little time and save the extra money to get this net. You will not be disappointed. Last note, if you are looking for a good practice mat and want the best mat to go with the best net, I recommend Real Feel mats. I did a review on the 10x36 (even though mine is 20x36). March 26, 2013 So I've been using this net since January 2012. I used it indoors during the 2012 winter in a rented storage locker (yeh I know a bit extreme) and had it setup the entire summer in my driveway. Now it's setup indoors in a spare bedroom with a vaulted ceiling. The netting itself is still in excellent shape. I just read a review where someone mentioned damaging the net with normal use? I can't imagine how. The only wear is some sun fading of the green fabric. My fault for leaving it up, but I'd rather buy a replacement net in a few years that take it up and down. I can't begin to estimate how many balls I have hit into the thing but it's a huge number for sure. I'd say I used it 4-5 days a week or more so it's gotten a lot of use not including my son and is friends too. The feedback it gives is excellent. If you slice you know it. Used with a video camera it has definitely helped me to refine my swing. Best investment for improving my game I have even made. No regrets.
Best net I have ever purchased. Sturdy, durable and easy to set up and take down. I will never need another net.
I received this product very fast than I thought. I like guick delivery above all. This looked sturdy and money's worth. This is fit for iron, wood, and driver practice. High recommend!!
This net is the real deal. I had it on my WishList for 16 months before buying, because I wanted to really make sure my money would be best spent on this net versus the myriad other options available for golf improvement. I finally pulled the trigger... and smacked myself for waiting 16 months to do so! The owner of the company stands behind his product, and when you receive it in the mail, you'll see why: Construction is quality. The net assembles in 5 minutes. When you hit your first golf ball into it and watch it roll right back to you, the simplicity will immediately put a smile on your face. I have it set up in my back office and use it almost daily. The last 3 weeks of practicing in private have resulted in the most rapid improvement of my ball-striking than all last year at the driving range. The one piece of advice I'd give you is: If you buy this net, buy a quality mat and buy the side protective netting that the company offers. Have fun!
The "Net Return" is awsome!! we got it for Christmas My husband Uses it daily and has noticed a huge difference on perfecting his swing It was well worth the money, it saves on gas and paying for buckets of balls going to the driving range With the net you only need one ball, it comes back to you everytime. If you order it also If you could put the money out for the green carpet I would. ENJOY! If you love golf you'll love the NET!
I bought this for two reasons. 1)To improve my golf game 2)To improve my daughters (9&11) soccer skills We both are using it frequently and enjoying it. My older daughter made a target by weaving string through the net. They have both improved their power and accuracy in just a few weeks. I am amazed that my golf ball comes right back to my feet each time. You must have a really long mat that goes all the way under the net for the ball to return perfectly. I bought the 4 x 5 Duropro NO SHOCK but I need to add a door mat so the ball doesn't fall short of the hitting mat. ** After writing my review (seen above), several hours later Net Pro called me and thanked me for my 5-star review. They said they wanted me to have a "professional" target. I received it the next day. I have to say that is a company caring about it's customers!***
I bought this net for my boys to practice kicking a soccer ball and we've also used it to hit golf balls. It's very large, very durable and easy to assemble. Excellent quality.
Durable, can be used with either real golf balls or foam balls. Had an old pc of carpet placed to dampen the golf ball and a small 1x2 pc of cheap golf mat for driving. I have a 2 car garage and just set it up on one side. I just slide the net up to the upper part of the frame when I want my car inside. And when i want to practise, just slide the net down the frame and drive the car out of the garage. Am just a beginner and did not want to waste money on most of the bad swings i have on the driving range. Its expensive compared to the other nets but its almost a driving range at home.
This is the real deal- I have had plenty of other nets- this one works as it is advertised. A bit pricey- yet you get what you pay for
This is a very good product and it works exactly as promised. I have it setup in my garage and although it is tall, it is not very deep so I still have lots of room. It is very light weight and easy to move around. You can hit balls into it standing as close as you want and the ball just comes right back. I always just practice with one ball.
This was a gift for my husband, but since I'm an avid golfer and practice as much, if not more than he does, i am writing this review. It's pricey, that's for sure, but worth every penny! I figure that the money I'm saving at the driving range will more than make up for the purchase price of the Net Return. I am so addicted to this game that I moved my living room furniture out and installed the Net Return in place of our chairs and tables. Now, is that normal? We have cathedral ceilings, so the space was perfect. We also have the Opti shot Dancinn Dogg simulator and it's a use the driving range or play one of the 10 courses that the simulator has. Now back to the Net Return...I have had other nets and had to purchase a number of practice balls so I did not have to shag balls all the time. So, the premise of the ball returning to where I was hitting on the mat sold me. I can now use one or two balls and not have to deal with all the balls that ended up on and around our back yard. The product is well made, sturdy and nice looking. I also bought the side baffles, though I don't know if I'll need them. I have yet to have a ball, even mis hit, ricochet off line. I do have a quality hitting mat, which I suggest one purchase when you ever you hit off an artificial surface. I had a season of tennis elbow from hitting off hard mats and learned my lesson the hard way. You will NOT be disappointed if you buy this product. It's worth every penny!
Ok...had it only one week so far. But, this thing is nice. Super easy to assemble, being everything is color coded. Just match the like colored ends and lock them together. This thing is built with some strong aluminum tubing. The tubing is big; net is strong. I really like it and believe this thing will last a long time. One thing I will keep an eye on is net durability. It seems strong, but I will update this review in about 4-5 months to note if any net wear is visible. Overall, I am very happy. I can stand in my backyard and hit real golf balls all I want....nice!
After reading the reviews I decided to go ahead and get this net. The first time I set it up it actually took about 10 minutes, but after that I take no more than 4 minutes to set up and even less to take down. I've only had it for a few days, but have hit close to 1000 balls. This net truly does what it says, it returns the ball to you and gives you instant feedback. I can tell when I hit a slice or a hook. My seven year old loves it cause she can practice as well, and even my wife is getting in the action. The net looks very high quality and the net itself holds up to even driver hits. If you are serious about improving your game you need this net. Its really an investment, and it will pay for itself eventually with the money you save by not going to the range.
I've had this product since Christmas day, 2010. I have it set up in my garage, right next to my wife's SUV, with the proviso that if I put a dent in her car I'll need to buy her a better one. So far, so good. The net behaves exactly as billed. I have used one golf ball with it since I set it up. The ball doesn't always come back to exactly where I struck it, but it does always come back, no matter how hard I hit it and no matter the loft of the club I've used. I have a doppler radar that I sometimes place next to the tee when I'm using a driver. With the radar to tell me how far the ball might have gone, I've really got myself an indoor driving range. In New England in the winter, that is great. The only drawback with this (or any net) is that I can't tell if the ball slices. I can, however, tell when I've made solid contact and I'm anxious to go to a range to determine whether the feel of the shot translates into degree of accuracy. I would recommend this product to anyone who can afford it. The time saved in not having to gather balls makes the price well worth it.

I purchased The Net Return last winter at a golf show. The manufacturer had the Net setup, so it was possible to try it before buying - a good thing, as it worked so well I managed to get over the sticker shock. I have used other nets and found them wanting. This Net works as advertised, but does need a good quality, full length hitting mat in order for the ball to return to you from the net. I set it up on my patio and used it throughout the summer. Not only was it helpful for full swing shots, but also for the short game; it really lets you see how good (or not!) your form is on your chips. At the end of the summer, my golf handicap index was below 10. I believe the extra practice shaved off a couple of strokes!
Great golf practice net.The best net for golf I have owned to date and I have had a few. Easy set up and take down. I love the ball return feature. I have this set up in my shop and it makes for a fast warmup before a round of golf or a full practice session. Made with very high quality materials that were made to last.A top shelf net that can be used for many sports!
Love this net...works as advertised....struck well, the ball does come back....to the point it was struck from....believe it or not...I have not needed more than one ball to practice...I just change clubs... For best results, a proper mat is essential - the manufacturer should suggest - I strongly recommend a mat - such as the Dura-Pro-series Spring Tech - I bought their new 'no-shock' series...and together with this net - the combination is incredible... A suggestion to Net Return LLC.,...please include a simple one page instruction sheet with a picture or two....this would be useful....even though the assembly is simple with the color coded tubes...the best place to start the assembly process is not clear....I started with the base....and soon enough realized I had to invert the structure...
After destroying a cheap net in just a few days I decided to spend the extra money and give the net return a try. This product is fantastic! With 2 young kids I have little time on the course and so having a net in my basement is great. I've been playing to a 10 handicap for 2 or 3 years but I am convinced that this will help groove my swing and get me into single figures. Unlike other nets there is no slamming sound because the ball hits net rather than canvas. This helps feedback strike quality which is really important. You can use any club without having to worry about your follow through as there is no hood unlike the more dome like shapes. You can therefore swing freely. It's well made and well thought out and up in minutes. I have my own quality hitting matt so I went for the home series and I didn't think much of the turf. Fine to return the ball but I don't think it would last long if I were using it to hit from. I also got side nets which again are really worthwhile to shape the bay but also to give extra confidence particularly when experimenting....anyone can catch one out of the hozzle and my higher handicap friends and kids will also want to use it. The ball returns well when hitting into the middle but as the rubber tees are usually at the edge of a matt hitting a driver is less likely to return the ball to your feet. This is no big deal, just have a few extra balls. Also it is no bad idea to walk away every few shots so that you don't find yourself edging too close or gripping too tight. A thoroughly great product for any handicap and for anyone who wants improve or just has the urge to hit a few balls in the middle of watching the golf channel. As one golfer to another, get this product.
This product works exactly as advertised. I have it set up in my garage that has a 9' ceiling and I can hit every club from lob wedge through driver. I just bought the net and got the turf from a local Synlawn dealer. The amazing thing is how the net returns the ball to your hitting position. This is great for trying to create muscle memory. From the time you hit a shot until the ball is back ready to be hit again is about 2 or 3 seconds. If you are hitting at the rate of a shot every 5 to 10 seconds you can work through your whole bag very quickly. I have found that I typically don't even have to bend over to position the ball. My process is to setup, hit, analyze, setup and hit again. I would guess this process happens every 8 to 10 seconds. All with one ball. This is a great aid for trying little tweaks to your swing because the feedback is so quick. Of course you can't see the actual ball flight, but there is enough feedback by watching where the ball hits the net(follow the ball) and by the fact that a ball with a hook spin will come back to you slightly to the right of the centerline, and a slice spin will be returned to the left. Before I bought this net, I was shooting around 100. My goal was to be able to break 80 by the end of the summer. Less than one month after receiving the net, I have already broken 90 and am consistently shooting in the mid 80's. I have used this net nearly every day. It's great to be able to watch a golf instruction show like the Golf Fix on the Golf Channel and then go out to the garage and try out some new drill. I was not sure that it was worth spending the extra money for this net when you can buy nets at the local golf store for a fraction of the price. I am so glad I spent the money. I was planning to use this both outside on a large wooden deck and in the garage. It assembled just as advertised. In the month that I have had it, I have not moved it outside. It is so convenient having it in the garage that I just leave it set up all the time so I can hit balls whenever the mood strikes me. If you are contemplating buying a cheaper net, don't do it. Buy this net and you won't regret it.
Just received the net a week ago. Very easy to set up and the ball comes back to you so you don't have to waste time gathering the balls. It's pricier than the other nets, and I have not purchased competitor's net so I have nothing to compare to, but I think the extra money is worth it. This is a great product.
This net return is the best net ever! It can be used for a wide range of sports, soccer, lacrosse, baseball, golf and more. The net is better than anyone would ever expect, sure its a couple bucks over your set price limit but in the long run this is the best net available, ANYWHERE. If you are saying to yourself, "if this net is so good, why doesn't anyone else have it." YOUR WRONG all the major brands support this net and rave about it. Also, the inventor put a patent on it so no one else can remake or redesign the net return, making every single net return with the same quality, which is AMAZING. Currently, I am using the net return indoors, in my basement, which serves as a home away from home. I have also tried using it outside, by windows and many other unusually places that work great. I can now go down stars and practice golf, soccer or lacrosse, i don't much care for baseball, but that not to say i still don't throw a ball into the net return from time to time. I hit each shot harder and hard and more accurate than I ever expected. The net return is built in a "S" shape and has a extremely durable net that absorbs every shot and gently releases it back at your feet. This is major, those that do not use hitting nets a lot do not know the dangerous bounce back your shot can have. For example, once I hit a ball into a hitting net and it cam back just as hard as I hit it, which was very hard, right at my stomach. This net is much beyond the other nets in every way, its very portable, the most portable net you will ever find. It can be taken down and set up in just 5 minutes. It comes with a case that makes traveling much easer and can be used almost anywhere you wish. It weighs about 25 to 30 pounds which is not heavy compared to others but will still stay standing if a soccer ball, lacrosse ball and golf ball is being used. It also has rust proof aluminum which makes it perfect for outdoor use. Many other nets claim they are rust proof, but we all know they are just advertising their product, this has he best materials any net could use. All in all, i would rate this product 100 stars if I had the option!!!! In the long run this net will save you tons of money. Now I can stay home, go down to my basement and enjoy the driving range, within 100 feet of my family. BUY THIS NET!!!!!!!!
