PVC would get destroyed quickly. Wood isn't bad.
What I would do is make a shooting tarp and frame. Build a bigger frame (maybe 8' wide by 6' tall) out of your 2x3's, then hang a billboard tarp from it.
See what I did here with a $25 billboard tarp
Benefit of this is less wear and tear on the "pipes" because they are tape instead of wood or plastic. You'll probably hit the odd frame but not nearly as often. Also, you won't have to worry as much about pucks bouncing off the posts and into neighbors yards or windows.
For outside shooting, I'd also look at building a little platform to shoot from, even something as simple as laying down a thick sheet of plywood and then putting your shooting pad on top of that, because you can't shoot off a pad laying on the grass.
Just my two cents.
