Izzo Big Daddy Golf Net Instructions

By Kate Evelyn

The Izzo Big Daddy Golf Net is a good tool to have if you want to practice your drives but you don't want to worry about where your ball ends up. This 7-foot by 7-foot net is designed to catch anything you can hit at it, even at top speed. The toughest part of using the Big Daddy Golf Net may be setting it up.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Find the metal frame, which looks similar to a tent pole. It will consist of two rods that are folded so they can fit in the box. Reassemble them by inserting each of the rounded fiberglass tips into the metal sleeve next to it. You should be left with a straight line of poles.
Step 2
Find the net and open it up so that it looks like a large oval. Lay it flat on the ground so that the sleeve at the top of the oval is furthest away from you. Take the rod and push it through the sleeve, going from left to right. The whole rod should fit exactly, making an upside-down horseshoe over the top of the net. Take the ends of the rod and connect them at the bottom of the net in order to make an oval. 
Step 3
Attach the straps by their clips on opposite sides of the nets.  These are small green, white and black clips. When finished, the longer straps should make an "X", with the smallest strap forming a straight line between about 4 and 8 o'clock. 
Step 4
Once the straps are installed the net should pinch the oval into a form that can stand on its own. In order to anchor the net, add weight to the weight bag or securely stake the net into the ground. 
 

Tips & Warnings

 
Put a heavy weight on the weight bag, which is a nylon bag attached to the back of the net near the base. This will prevent the net from tipping over when you hit it with the ball. Follow these steps in reverse to take down your net. Do not store it while it is assembled to help prevent the net from getting snagged.
