The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 Review

50 Words or Less

The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 is the Cadillac of practice nets.  Easy to set up and break down.  Enormously huge.  Multi-sport use.

Introduction

While I’m not likely to retire from writing to chase a Tour card anytime soon, I’m a slightly above average golfer.  However, I still get very nervous hitting into a net.  The possibility of making a crazy swing and shattering a window or denting some drywall makes me anxious.

If you have similar concerns – about yourself or your friends – consider building your practice station around The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2.  This net is super sturdy, easy to put together, and wide enough to handle the shots of even the shakiest ball strikers.

Set Up & Ease of Use

The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 arrives in a roughly golf bag-sized box.  Open up the box and you find the carry bag with all the pieces inside of it.  Below is what you’ll have when you’ve removed all the pieces from the bag and disposed of the plastic.

While this may look a bit intimidating, assembling The Net Return couldn’t be much easier.  Each piece is color coded, and there’s an instruction sheet if you want more guidance.  The Net Return says that one person can set it up in under 30 minutes.  Barring physical limitations, if it takes you more than 10 minutes, I have real questions.  My first assembly took under 5 minutes, and no one has ever confused me with Norm Abram (showing my age with that reference).

What’s deceptive about the Pro Series Golf Net V2 is the size.  Because it fits into such a convenient carrying case, I didn’t expect it to be as large as it is.  Fully assembled, this net is 7’6″ tall, 8′ wide, and 3’6″ deep.  Despite its size, it weighs just about 30 pounds.

Effectiveness

The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 is a joy to use.  With its aforementioned size, my concerns about property damage disappeared.  The Net Return claims it can withstand up to 225 MPH ball speed (they’re confident in that as you can see HERE), so my pedestrian shots were gently caught and deposited back at my feet.  Also, the netting is secured around the entire structure, so you don’t need to worry about that one in a million shot sneaking past the net.

What really separates The Net Return from other nets – and makes it an easier sell if you have kids – is the multi-sport versatility.  The Net Return is built to handle not just golf balls but soccer balls, baseballs, footballs, lacrosse balls, and hockey pucks.  I fired every kind of sports projectile I could find and The Net Return kept gently tossing them back to me, completely unbothered.

If you want to take The Net Return to the next level, there are multiple ways to do so.  For the flop shot artist, you can add the No Fly Zone to make it a bit taller.  For players that hit lots of…lateral shots…there are Side Barriers.  Finally, you can make The Net Return part of a home simulator set up with a screen.  You can see all The Net Return accessories HERE.

If you don’t have room for the expansive Pro Series Golf Net V2, The Net Return offers the Mini Pro Series Golf Net.  That version  is 6′ tall, 5′ wide, and the same 3’6″ deep, making it an easy fit in almost any hitting area.

Longevity

The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 is made of 1.5″ rust resistant aluminum and the netting is rated for at least 250,000 shots.  There is virtually no chance that you will outlast The Net Return.

Value

The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 retails for $795.  Please consider supporting our sponsor, Golf Anytime, by buying it HERE.

The Net Return also has the Home Series Golf & Multi Sport Net V2 for $695 [see it HERE] and the aforementioned Mini Pro Series Golf Net for $649 [see it HERE].  The Home Series is 6″ shorter and 12″ narrower than the Pro Series.

At whichever size makes sense for you, The Net Return is a great value.  This is an extremely durable net that will last for a long time.  The ease of set up and break down adds value, as does its multi-sport versatility.

Conclusion

If you have the space for it, The Net Return Pro Series Golf Net V2 is an amazing building block for your home practice station.  You can confidently swing away knowing that no shot can escape its grasp.  Also, you can easily break down The Net Return if you need more space for non-golf living, and it has great multi-sport potential for families with young athletes.

  1. Looking at this for an outdoor at home type launch monitor set up.

    Given most monitor recommendations of 8+ feet between ball and net, would you feel comfortable hitting a full swing pitching or gap wedge into this at that distance? I don’t launch the ball too high but am concerned about sending one straight over the top.

      Ty,

      I’m probably the wrong person to ask because I’m a very nervous person when it comes to nets and golf swings. I think the “roof” attachment to the Net Return would add a level of insurance. Also, my experience with indoor launch monitors is that most don’t need 8 feet.

      Best,

      Matt
