The weather is getting nice here now, so I dug out the ladder ball game I built two years ago. Got the plans from Lowes creative ideas. I made a few changes, but mostly followed the plans. Wood is pine finished with outdoor spar urethane. The “balls” are pvc pipe caps drilled on the end with cord tied to it. The rungs are taped with electrical marking tape. The pipe caps are definetely lighter than golf balls but still throw well, and with kids around are a little safer. Wouldn’t be much harder to drill golf balls and do the same thing though. I’m pretty sure on the Lowes creative ideas website it has the distance between the games and also the rules too. These are not collapsable, but it wouldn’t be difficult to make them that way.
