Residential Golf Barrier Netting

If your property is located on a golf course fairway, by a driving range, or if you have any reason to require a barrier net to block golf balls from entering your yard - going for a golf barrier netting installation will save you lots of money in property damage and potential injuries.  The 1" mesh size DuPont® type 66-728 twisted-knotted nylon netting with tar coating is your best choice for long-term durability and dependability.  The #12 twine comes with a 7 year UV warranty, while the thicker #18 twine has a 10 year UV warranty.  The 1" mesh size is optimal for barrier netting applications because it performs very well with wind, blocks errant balls/shots, and has a minimal visual consideration.

Some people ask about sourcing a white, clear, or green netting color - with the intentions of going for a netting installation that is "invisible".  However, something to keep in mind is that the black color is actually the least visually obtrusive color to use for barrier netting installations, as it 'blends' in very well with the surrounding background and doesn't "stand out" at all (unlike a white coloring, which will be quite visible).  And also, black is the most dependable material with regards to UV exposure.

Check out these great photos sent over to us from a customer who had us supply some custom golf barrier nets that feature a tapered-shape.  As you can see, the golf netting looks fantastic and the installation is really nice.  Most barrier installations use a series of poles and tensioned cables, which you can detail here - and you can also check out the hardware materials here.
