DIY Golf Ball Picker

I have a large field behind my house that I hit golf balls into. I want to build my own golf ball picker which I can pull behind my lawn mower to retrieve the balls. Any ideas? Anyone ever built one?

Visit a driving range and look at their pickup rig.

Here's a common one you may be able to get an idea from.

I would put the picker in front of your mower if possible. When you drive over balls it can push them into the ground where a picker can't get them.

Exactly. In the following video..... Chase built a rear catcher and it seemed that when the balls were run over they are hard to pick up.

Chase built one
