The Net Return Buyer's Guide

net return buyer's guide

The Net Return is arguably the most popular product on Shop Indoor Golf. Their golf practice nets offer a level of quality and performance above any other product currently on the market. If you want to practice your golf game at home, and want to build a simulator, their products are a great option.

In this guide, we will go through their product line and talk about which models are appropriate for your needs. 

The Net Return - Unique Features

The reason The Net Return has such a high level of satisfaction is a mixture of the product's features and quality.

The main feature that sets them apart is that the net automatically returns the ball back to the golfer during practice. Any player who has practiced with inferior nets knows that a feature like this can save a lot of time and aggravation during practice sessions. This video shows exactly how that happens:

The Net Return is designed in such a way that it allows you to stand closer to the net compared to other products. It won't require as much space in your house because of this.

On top of that, the materials they use are superior to most products out there. Almost all of their models carry a 250,000 shot guarantee - something that no other manufacturer can claim.

Additionally, the unit can be assembled or disassembled within 5 minutes using a very simple color-coded system.

While there are plenty of other budget golf nets on the market, none of them have this mixture of design elements and material quality. Simply put, The Net Return is the best practice net on the market. At Shop Indoor Golf we want to make sure our customers are satisfied, which is why we are proud to carry their products.

Pro Series

The Pro Series is the most popular model offered by The Net Return. It can withstand ball speeds up to 225 MPH and carries a 250,000 shot guarantee.

For golfers who have space in their house, it makes it an optimal choice for a simulator package. Here are dimensions of the unit:

  • Height: 7' 6"
  • Width: 8'
  • Depth: 3' 6"

Golfers should be aware that it does require a decent amount of space in their house to fit the Pro Series unit, which you can see in this image.

The Pro Series retails for $595 on its own, but we offer several discounted packages that include accessories.

Our most popular is the Pro Golf Package. For $1,299 it includes a 6' x 10' pro turf, side barriers, sandbags, two rubber tees, and a duffle bag for storage. If you are planning on practicing indoors this is a great idea because it will protect your house from any errant shots. Additionally, the roll-up hitting turf will allow you to have your ball returned to you easily.

If you are building a simulator with a projector and want to use the Pro Series net, then you can purchase an impact screen separately for $295.

Overall, the Pro Series is their flagship product. For golfers who have enough space indoors, or want to practice outdoors this is an excellent product that will last for years.

Mini Pro Series

The Mini Pro Series is a great option for golfers who are a little short on space. This net has all of the features of the Pro Series but in a slightly smaller package.

Here are the dimensions:

  • Height: 6'
  • Width: 5'
  • Depth: 3' 6"

The following image shows the recommended space needed if you are practicing indoors:

The Mini Pro series retails for $495, and also comes with a 250,000 guarantee. 

We have two popular packages available for the Mini Pro Series, which include side barriers and hitting turf.

They are very similar but have one key difference. The Mini Runner Package retails for $749, and the Mini Pro Package costs $1,149.

They both offer everything you will need to practice safely indoors but the size of the turf is different. The Mini Runner has a hitting surface that is only 2'6" wide, which will mean you are not standing on the same exact level as the golf ball. Conversely, the Mini Pro Package has turf that is 6 feet wide which will allow you to comfortably stand on the same level. 

You can see the difference between the two in the following images:

Simply put, the Mini Pro Series is an excellent solution for golfers who have limited space, but still want a quality commercial-grade practice net.

Home Series Multi-Sport Net

The third option from The Net Return splits the difference between the Pro series and Mini Pro series. 

The Home Series is sized between the two with the following dimensions:

  • Height: 7'
  • Width: 7'
  • Depth: 3' 6"

This is a great option if you need a net for multiple sports. Its size makes it suitable for soccer, baseball, softball, and lacrosse. So if you have kids who are interested in multiple sports this could fit nicely into your backyard.

The Home Series retails for $695, which makes it a great deal for customers who want performance, versatility, and long-term durability.

We also offer a Home Series Pro package which includes turf, side barriers, rubber tees, and sandbags for $1,199.

Wrapping It Up
