Hurricane Golf Cage
Ok, so this golf cage may not stand up to hurricane force winds, but it has been designed and tested to withstand more wind and weather than other cages. The trapezoid frame design allows for an easier and more stable frame setup. The frame includes our black powder-coated welded corner fittings and poles for a complete and great looking setup. Also included is a nylon impact panel, our durable 3’x3′ training target, a 1’x2′ hitting mat (golf tray available separately), and stake-down kit.
The Netting: This package includes a heavy duty commercial quality golf cage that literally weighs more than twice as much as our competitors "Commercial Cage". The netting is made from a commercial grade polyethylene, which does not absorb water and resists the effects of direct sunlight. Unlike other cages with a rope simply woven in and out through the netting, this cage has a heavy rope border stitched to netting on all perimeter edges.
The Frame: The trapezoid frame system includes heavy duty one piece welded steel corner fittings, similar to the ones used in our batting cage packages. Also included are the black powder coated poles that looks fantastic and will last for years to come.
Impact Panel: Features a stitched web border with brass grommets for easy installation. This netting is very tightly woven with 48 strands of nylon and is urethane impregnated. Urethane acts like a protective coating that helps resist shrinking and snagging. It also prevents the net from absorbing water, so it resists rotting.
The Target: Our durable target features a white center stripe made from a fine nylon mesh, which is quiet when the ball strikes it. The black outer stripes are made from a heavy black tarpaulin material, which makes an audible "pop" when contacted. The target provides the golfer with instant audible shot feedback without the golfer needing to look up to see where his or her ball went. If the shot is quiet, the ball hit the center strip. If the shot makes a pop, the shot is off-line.
The Mat: Our 1'x2' medium duty hitting mat holds up well and is perfect for a long lasting backyard / indoor golf practice mat. Both the nap and the turf are thicker and more durable than residential hitting mats. Golf tray sold separately.
Stakedown Kit: This package includes special ground stakes to secure the golf cage firmly to the ground.
I am new to the game and wanted a way to practice at home. I live in a residential area, so property damage was a concern. This cage is well worth the investment because my swing is terrible. I live in Florida where thunderstorms are a common occurrence. The cage has survived several storms with wind gusts up to 40-45 mph. I would not leave it up during a hurricane however. The ease of assembly and disassembly was a deciding factor in my purchase.
