Best backyard golf gadgets 2022: 6 setups you need for your home

The best backyard nets and games of 2022.

These are the best backyard nets and games of 2022.


Once upon a time, backyard hitting nets were the only way for diehards to satisfy their golf itch during the winter.

Luckily, the days of Covid-19 driving range closures are in the rearview, but the obsession around improving golf’s portability is not. With the weather in the north getting colder, now is as good a time as ever to take advantage of the empty space in your basement or garage. Provided, of course, you have a high enough ceiling.

And for those who live in warmer climates — or just want to stock up on golf-themed lawn games — there are a couple of options for those too.

Check out the selections below for the best options to bring the game into your home.
