Garage Golf Simulator Setup Questions

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 Do I Get Wi-Fi in My Garage to Run Golf Simulation Software?

Most golf simulation software programs operate on wi-fi. Some include offline modes in which you can download courses while on wi-fi to be used later offline. But in general, you will have a better experience with access to wi-fi.

If your wi-fi signal doesn't extend to your garage, get a usb wi-fi extender. These devices enhance the reception and transmission of your signal strength and will help your signal reach your garage. The USB versions can plug right into your computer making it very easy to setup!

Which Launch Monitor is Best for a garage golf simulator setup?

When it comes to a garage setup, space is king. Unless you have a large RV, or 3 car garage, then space will be limited. Especially if you plan on continuing to use your garage for car storage.

So the best launch monitors for a garage golf setup are the ones that take up the least amount of space.

Launch monitors like the Uneekor QED or EYE XO are mounted on the ceiling. While ceiling mounted setups aren't always ideal in garages, if you can make it work, then these units will free up some floor space.

Lastly, popular launch monitors such as Trackman, FlightScope Mevo+, and the FlightScope X3 all require around 8' of space between the unit and the ball down the target line. These units require the most amount of space and aren't well suited for small to medium sized garages.

How Do I Protect My Car From Errant Shots?

Hitting balls next to expensive items may be a great way to test your game under pressure! But let's be honest, we're bound to break something if we practice long enough..Cars, grills, cabinets, jetski's. There's a lot of stuff we store in our garages that we would be devastated to damage. So if you're worried about protecting your surroundings, here are our tips:

Invest in side netting. A lot of pre-configured golf simulator packages such as our SkyTrak SwingBay Setup come with protective side netting. So if you go that route you are in the clear.

But if not, we recommend purchasing some generic netting that you can attach to your screen or net, down to your garage wall using hook screws. This netting comes in 10'x10', 10'x15' or 10'x20' lengths. We recommend getting the 10'x20' and cutting it in half to create two 10'x10' nets in which you can use for each side of the setup.

Consider getting landing pad turf. One thing people don't often think about as potentially damaging is bouncing balls. Concrete garage floors are the ideal habitat for some bouncing balls! While they won't do as much damage as a line drive shank, a bouncing golf ball up into a car door can still cause an unsightly dent.

Setting up some sort of turf landing pad or even carpet below your screen will help the balls to land softly and prevent them from escaping your setup area.
