    • Theater curtains
    • 2 inch thick memory foam
    • 2 foot by 2 foot acoustical tiles.
    • Heavy carpet
    • Felt under pad
    • Artificial grass



    THE ROOM AND SET UP:
    • The room is 14 feet wide by 17 long
    • Room is set up for right hand golfers only
    • Cage is made from 1 inch electrical conduit painted black

    Well, it looks quite impressive - especially considering the budget you've mentioned.
    So thanks for sharing!
