We recommend at a minimum 8.5��� high x 8.5��� wide x 12' deep.
Since ceiling height is usually the biggest limitation, be sure to measure your ceiling height, ensure that it is at least 8' high and ensure you can take a comfortable backswing in your space. Some backswings may be higher than 8' so be sure to check this limitation.
At a minimum, you will need the following:
- Compatible Computer, iPad, or other Device (see FAQ below for device requirements)
- If you are using an iPad, you will need a Lighting Digital AV Adapter to connect your iPad to the HDMI Cable
Other accessories such as ball trays, club racks, alignment sticks, seating, etc. can surely be added. The possibilities are endless to make your golf simulator setup your own.
If you have an iPad and want to connect to a projector:
1) Connect HDMI Cable from the Projector to a Lightning Digital AV Adapter
2) Connect Lightning Digital AV Adapter to your iPad
You can also connect an HDMI between the Projector and a TV to display on a TV.
If you have a PC Computer and want to connect to a projector:
1) Connect HDMI Cable from the Projector to your Computer
If you want to also display on a TV, you can connect an HDMI from the computer to your TV.

SkyTrak uses photometric technology meaning it uses high-speed cameras to capture key ball data metrics & measurements immediately after impact. This ball data is then fed through SkyTrak's advanced algorithms to calculate flight path and distance all while delivering this information to your iPad, PC, or other compatible device. This allows you to view all of the advanced shot statistics along with the shot simulation within seconds of hitting the ball.
SkyTrak provides all the core sets of data that you need to improve your game. These data points include:
- Total Distance
- Carry Distance
- Roll Distance
- Ball Speed
- Club Head Speed
- Launch Angle
- Offline Yardage
- Flight path
- Angle of descent
While other systems take the approach of providing every possible shot data parameter whether it is usable or not, SkyTrak has narrowed this list down to this list of key data points. Whether you are an amateur or a professional, these data points provide any golfer what you need to actually improve your game.
Aside from taking our word for it, SkyTrak has been robot tested at Golf Laboratories, #1 independent testing facility in the golf industry. Using a variety of shot types, ball speeds, and golf clubs, the results were virtually indistinguishable from the leading commercial launch monitors in the industry across the 5 most important parameters ��� ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin/spin axis, and side angle.
With over 10+ years of usage, the SkyTrak ball flight model has been tested thoroughly with robot and human hit testing for measured carry/total and offline distances. Unlike some professional-grade launch monitors, SkyTrak���s ball flight simulations are not affected by atmospheric conditions like wind, humidity, etc. (unless you turn these on in the session settings).
If you cannot afford the SkyTrak and are looking for an alternative golf simulator option, we recommend you look into the OptiShot 2. We have a SkyTrak vs OptiShot 2 article for more information.
If you cannot afford the SkyTrak and are looking for an alternative launch monitor, we recommend you look into the Swing Caddie SC200 or the Ernest Sports ES14.
If you are looking for a slight upgrade in accuracy and are willing to pay a higher price, we recommend looking into the Foresight GC2. We have a SkyTrak vs GC2 article for more information.

SkyTrak has designed the simplest method of ball placement on the market today. Simply place the ball exactly where the red laser light is pointing and hit your shot. Please also make sure to follow these tips to ensure proper reading of your shot:
- Make sure the SkyTrak is raised to be level with the hitting surface
- Place the SkyTrak exactly parallel to your intended target
- Use the recommended laser distance of 12
For the best possible experience with the SkyTrak, we recommend using a device with a fast processor and ensure that your internet connection is strong. Most of the time, this will reduce the lag to a few milliseconds.
To further improve internet speeds, some customers have used wifi extenders. Some homes have dead spots and metals that interfere with the wifi connection. The extender should help resolve this potential issue.
While the 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 of use 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
The system has an internal battery providing over 4 hours of use when fully charged and wirelessly connects to your iPad. Outdoor performance may vary in certain lighting conditions. Avoid the sun shining or reflecting directly into the lens of the SkyTrak device. We suggested using it only under cover if hitting on an outdoor driving range.

- customer service
Not only did i get what i was expecting, but it was nice to have a friendly person answer the phone when i had an inquiry on my order. He was able to clear my confusion in a short period of time. Best of all, he seemed happy to be working there.
The net was delivered in timely manner. The quality was above average although some issues with missing parts. These were replaced with a new full package right away so good customer service. Still waiting on Skytracker unit
