What Golf Simulator Has The Best Courses?

How Do You Putt On A Golf Simulator

We get asked a lot: Can you putt on a golf simulator? And the answer is yes! Almost all golf simulators allow you to putt. And each golf simulator mentioned in this article allows for full play- driving, irons, chipping, and putting.

Is putting accurate?

Putting can be difficult on a golf simulator because of a lack of depth perception. You also can't feel the terrain under your feet like you do out on the course. Because of this, many people find putting on a golf simulator difficult - at least at first! But once you get the hang of it, it becomes much more enjoyable. And once you get adjusted to putting into a screen, you'll find it pretty accurate.

It's often helpful to ensure you have some sort of turf that matches the height of your hitting mat. If you ball drops off that matt onto a different level of surface, sometimes that can cause less accurate readings.

How Can A Launch Monitor Improve My Game?

Too many players guess when it comes to what they are doing wrong in their swing. A launch monitor provides the cold hard truth about your flaws. With units such as the Uneekor QED and EYE XO, you can see your exact swing path and club angle through the ball. And by knowing some golf basics such as that an out to in club path combined with an open clubface causes a slice, you'll be able to easily diagnose problems in your swing.

Launch monitors can provide insights into all types of ball flight issues such as hitting it too high or low, pulls and pushes, slices and hooks, or finding the optimal spin rate to hit the ball further.

Aside from helping to diagnose problems in your swing, launch monitors do a lot more to help your golf game. They help you to know your exact carry and total distance numbers with each club. And can tell you miss tendencies allowing you to make better decisions on the course.

They can help you decide your optimal bag make-up and are great if you like to tinker with different clubs. A launch monitor will also do a great job of helping you to benchmark your progress. Are your shot dispersions getting tighter? Is your ball flight more consistent across a range session? They provide concrete goals that you can work towards and make practice sessions a lot more productive.

How Much Space Do I Need For A Garage Golf Simulator?

Your garage will need to be at least 10'W x 10'L x 9'H for a smaller mat and net setup.

For a larger setup with a hitting enclosure like SwingBay, you will want an extra 6' of length to accommodate a projector. For our SkyTrak SwingBay Golf Simulator Package, we recommend a space that is at least 11'W x 16'L x 9'H.

When thinking about your space, it's helpful to swing your longest club in the area where you will be hitting. You will want to have 100% confidence in making full swings without hesitation. 

  • Lookout for overhead garage door tracks as they often sit 1-2' lower than the ceiling
  • Think about any cars or other objects that may periodically be in the garage while you are using the simulator

How big of a room do you need for a golf simulator?

A minimum room size of 12 feet in width, 9 feet in height, and 15 feet in length is recommended for a basic golf simulator setup. However, for a more comfortable experience and to accommodate full swing motion, a room size of at least 12 feet in width, 10 feet in height, and 16 feet in length is preferable.

Is a 9' ceiling enough for a golf simulator?

Yes, a 9-foot ceiling can be sufficient for a golf simulator, but it may limit the types of shots you can comfortably take, especially for taller players or those with a higher swing arc. It's advisable to ensure there's enough clearance to avoid hitting the ceiling during swings.

Can I put a golf simulator in my garage?

Yes, you can install a golf simulator in your garage, provided it has adequate space and suitable conditions. Ensure the garage has enough room for the simulator setup, including space for full swings. Additionally, consider factors like temperature control, lighting, and flooring to create an optimal environment for your simulator experience.

Where do you put a golf simulator in your house?

Place your golf simulator in a spacious room with sufficient height, preferably a basement, spare room, or garage. Ensure the area has enough clearance for full swings and consider factors like lighting, temperature control, and flooring. A dedicated space away from high traffic areas is ideal for an immersive golf experience.

  1. Golf Launch Monitor.
  2. Simulator Software.
  3. Computer or Mobile Device.
  4. Net or Impact Screen.
  5. Projector (optional)
  6. Hitting Mat.
