1Golf impact screens are available in raw material, finished edge screens, DIY enclosure kits and Pro golf simulator enclosures. All golf products are made to order, by hand. Please allow for slight variances in size. Consult the selections on the product pages to view your purchasing options.

2All our impact screens should withstand several thousands of strikes from even the best golfers and are made for use with real golf balls.

3Our best value for home users is our Standard golf screen which offers the most budget-friendly option. Our Preferred offers an upgraded image for just a few dollars more. However, our top-selling product with the highest customer satisfaction is our Premium. Premium offers some noise reduction which helps to dampen the sound of each strike of the ball and helps to reduce bounce back.

4Additionally, all our golf impact screen materials are compatible for HD/4K projection, though your projector, of course, will need to be capable of projecting a native high-definition resolution. Standard impact screens have the most texture and are likely to provide the appearance of a lower resolution image. While Premium impact screens have very little texture, they can provide the sharpest possible picture for your high-definition images. *** The properties of Preferred's single layer construction are likely to show the most dimples from each ball strike out of all golf materials. The dimples do not hurt the material, but it may be visible within your image.

5All impact screens are "wearable" products and may start showing wear, such as scuff marks and dimples, immediately after its first use. This is normal.

6Do NOT use a golf ball with Sharpie marker on it and make sure your clubs and golf balls are clean to avoid getting dirt or grass stains on your screen. Golf balls must be white. Newer golf balls without abrasions will also help to extend the life of you screen. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure - do your best to set-up, use and store your screen in a safe, clean and dry environment.

Caution:  To decrease your risk of bounce back and greatly reduce the chances of getting hit with a golf ball do *not* stand closer than 10-11 feet away from the screen. Customers who stand closer will experience bounce back and increase the risk of injury. Our recommendation is to stand a minimum 12-15 feet away from the screen for safety.

7Please make sure to take proper safety precautions. DO take every precaution; keep children, pets, and spectators out of swing range. DO take every precaution to protect ceilings, walls, windows, cars and neighboring homes. Carl's Place is not responsible for damage to property and/or personal injury.
