Customized Golf Cage Netting

Golf cage nets and golf netting installations are oftentimes supplied with some relatively standard/common net sizes and dimensions.  However, in many instances the particular area or space requires some very customized features, shapes, and measurements.  Utilizing the DuPont® type-66-728 knotted nylon netting, custom golf cage nets are routinely manufactured and supplied for a wide-range of unique customers.  There are some really great examples of some past netting constructions on the Gourock.com site here.  In one recent job, which you can see below, notice that there are all kinds of interesting aspects to the end-product.  This netting cage/enclosure was constructed with the #21 X 3/4" (241 lb./twine) knotted nylon netting, which is most preferred for high-abrasion golf applications - especially for impact panel nets.  All of the edges on this production are bordered with the 5/16" Dacron® rope (3200 lb./test).

Because of the location and installation area that this netting was required to be suspended within, there are quite of few notable features to check out:
  • tapered height from the front end to the back
  • tapered netting width down the left-hand side
  • 3' overlapping netting entrance door for easy entry
  • "wide-mouth" hitting end funneling down to a narrower containment end
And although all of the walls/ceiling on this custom golf net production were already constructed with the heavy-duty #21 X 3/4" knotted nylon, it's always highly recommended to utilize a secondary layer of impact netting that hangs inside the enclosure at the back wall, which has the purpose of absorbing the majority of the impacts and wear.  So you can see the secondary 11' X 10.5' impact net noted on there, which greatly enhances the overall durability of the installation by reinforcing the area of the golf net that is primarily hit into.
