I've had the net for one season now. I use it occasionally (20 hits a week) and it has a couple of small rips in it. It's packed away for the winter now but I will get at least another year out of it. The mat that comes with it is useless so be prepared to hit off of your lawn.
Replaced the flimsy poles with 3/4" pcv pipe I had laying around and they proved much sturdier, and will eventually have to get better tent pegs, but you can hardly find just the netting alone for this price anyway. Good way to get started practicing in your back yard, just realize that it won't be as sturdy as a cage at your local golf course or driving range. Am ordering one now for my grandson so he can start practicing with 'real' golf balls.
My son has been golfing since he was 3 years old. He will be turning 11 in October 2017, and this net is his favorite way to pass the time. He recently had surgery on August 1 (2017), and was ordered to take it easy for a couple of weeks. When he was cleared for physical activities, my husband set up this golf net in his room (it is HUGE! We only did this because his room is long, and he is accurate with his game. The net it truly for outdoor use.) Instead of waking up and going straight for the video games, he now wakes up and practices golf. We ordered a 4x4 golf mat, and the pair work great together. Highly recommended. Great value. It comes with a case to hold it when folded. You can literally set this up anywhere because it folds down so compactly.
