I’ve got the land, it’s mostly hillside but I did something similar for awhile. Could hit up to 6i. But I got sick of climbing the hill to pick up the ammo. I ended up just buying a net to work on my swing/contact. I can figure the rest out at a range or the course
I saw this on another forum. I have enough room for a short range, and I already hit around my land at about 120 yards. I could clear some more land and probably go to 150-170 depending on how I set it up. Driving would be another story I would have to see how much room I have. I have an inside practice area with a net which works pretty good and I am not but fifteen minutes from the local golf course where I can hit balls.
That seems like a fun idea, but I would lose way too many balls on that range.
I have a wedge range in my backyard, usually practice my wedges up to 100 yards away. I'm going to try to reel mow a "tee box" this year, with some seeding to help fill in any divots I take. I have enough trees that I can shoot at one for 45, 50, 55, 60, 65, 75, 80, and 100 yards away. Really enjoy it during the summer months.
Now, if the land behind me goes up for sale, we might be talking about a nice range of about 200 yards or so, or maybe a nice par 3. Wishful thinking i'm sure, but I could think of worse things to do with 6 acres of field behind my house!
I just sold a house a couple moths ago to a friend. It has a nice big field that sits to the side and in front of the house. Not quite long enough for a driver or 3W but you could get away with anything else. He is supposed to cut it down and I am trying to convince him to let me use it for that. Mostly I want to set up a short game area with measured and known distances to have a solid place to really work on dialing in that part of my game.
I would not because it would be a hassle to maintain. For the last decade I’ve been anywhere from 500 yards to 6 miles away from my club that has a great range and amazing short game practice area for those shot less than 60 yards. The trick for me is to put more practice time in on those partial wedges instead of just playing golf 95% of the time.
