How to Make Golf Nets

By Christopher Michael

According to Malcolm Gladwell, the author of "Outliers: The Story of Success," it takes 10,000 hours of practice to master a skill. And those who attain 10,000 hours more quickly are usually more successful in that endeavor over their lifetime. By building a golf net, you can practice your swing indoors or in the backyard whenever you have a free minute. This do-it-yourself project can be an investment in your mastery of the game.

Step 1

Cut seven pieces of 1 1/2-inch PVC pipe with a hacksaw. Use a tape measure and permanent marker to measure and mark one, 8-foot piece, two, 7-foot pieces, and four, 3-foot pieces. Cut straight through the mark with the hacksaw.

Step 2

Assemble the frame. Take the 8-foot top crossbar and fit each end with a 90-degree, 1 1/2-inch PVC elbow connector. Slide the 7-foot pieces into the open ports on the 90-degree connectors to form an upside-down U on the floor.

Step 3

Drill 19 holes into the frame using a hand drill and a 1/8-inch drill bit. Use a tape measure and mark the inside of the upside-down, U-shaped frame at 1-foot intervals. Hand turn 19, 1 3/8-inch screw eyes into the drilled holes.

Step 4

Construct the legs. Pop all four, 3-foot pieces into the parallel ports on the two, three-way 1 1/2-inch PVC T-connectors.

Step 5

Erect the assembly. Insert the open ends of the 7-foot pieces on the upside-down, U-shaped frame into the top-ends of the leg's three-way connectors.

Step 6

Cut 19, 6-inch pieces of rope using a tape measure and scissors. Tie the edges of the 7-by-8-foot piece of driving range-quality golf net to the assembly using one piece of rope per screw eye.
