Please visit our SkyTrak Golf Simulator Software Guide for an in-depth guide.
How Much Space Do You Need?
SkyTrak is placed adjacent to your ball and measures the first few inches of ball flight. Because of this, there isn't a minimum distance the ball has to travel, you just need a space large enough to swing your longest clubs and enough space for your golf mat and net/screen you are hitting into.
Typically we recommend a space at least 8'W x 8.5'H x 10'D. But it's always smart to swing your longest club in the space you are hitting to ensure comfort and enough room in all directions. What you are hitting into (net, hitting bay, etc) can also play into how much space you need.
Can You View SkyTrak on a TV?
Yes! All you will need to do is connect the device that's running SkyTrak to a TV via an HDMI cable or screencasting device.
To use SkyTrak as a golf simulator you will need to pair SkyTrak with a golf simulation software. The top software options for SkyTrak are TGC 2019 (PC), E6 Connect (PC or iOS), and WGT (iOS). To use TGC 2019 or E6 connect you will want to select the 'Game Improvement + Case' option when you add SkyTrak to cart. The game improvement plan supports integrations with TGC 2019 and E6 Connect. Then you will need to purchase a license to TGC 2019 or E6 Connect seperately.
To use WGT you will simply want to select the 'Tee Off (WGT) + Case option when adding SkyTrak to cart. The Tee Off Package includes a 1 year subscription to the WGT software.
For an in-depth guide on all Golf Simulator Software options with SkyTrak,see our SkyTrak Golf Simulator Software guide.
While SkyTrak performs best indoors, it is still completely portable and can be used outdoors as well. The system has an internal battery that lasts over 4 hours making it ideal even for the longest of driving range sessions. Some notes on using the SkyTrak outdoors:
- Be sure to avoid the sun shining or reflecting directly into the lens
- Hitting off of real grass could lead to misreads due to divots and flying grass throwing off the launch monitor readings - we recommend hitting off of an artificial turf or range mat surface if used outside
If you are planning on using your launch monitor primarily outdoors then we typically recommend checking out FlightScope Mevo+ instead.
SkyTrak will read foam balls. However, foam balls will react differently off the club face in terms of spin and speed. So you may get numbers different than what you are used to compared to real golf balls. Using real balls is recommended for the best results.

Bring on the rain
Just got my new sky trak. It’s super accurate, I will use it to dial in my game. Bring on the rain.
The wait was worse than I expected... but when my wife told me that a box had showed up to the house, my mind was blown. Set up was easy... fires up right away. So far no issues with connections. Have had multiple 5-6 hour sessions with family and friends playing on it. Great value here!
Truly think skytrak has help my pitching and my iron game I'm looking forward to upgrading my software soon
