1) You should choose the SkyTrak SwingBay Golf Simulator if you have a $10,000 budget and at least 9' high x 12' wide x 16' deep of space. We've done the hard work for you and packaged together an all-in-one solution that gets you the best bang for your buck. This package includes the SkyTrak Launch Monitor & Golf Simulator, the SwingBay Screen & Enclosure, a 1080p HD Short Throw Projector, Projector Ceiling Mount, your Choice of Premium Golf Hitting Mat, a Landing Pad Turf Surface, Side Netting, and an HDMI Cable all normally priced at $7,999 but is on sale now for $6,999!
This simulator does not come with as many accessories as some of the previous entries. However, what it may lose in versatility, it gains in technical prowess. The 3D Swing Analyzer is essentially a sensor that you wear on your hand that can connect to any device via Bluetooth. It analyzes the quality of the swing by measuring parameters such as club speed, club plane, backswing length, tempo, etc. But the real magic begins once your swing has been recorded. The Zepp Golf 2 has instant feedback capabilities, providing you with instant swing analysis as soon as your swing is complete. This prompt feedback allows you to improve your technique with each swing, making your practice session much more fruitful than it would have been otherwise.
Another factor that you need to consider is space. If you have the space and all the proper equipment such as golf net, golf mat and a golf set, then you are able to take your practice session to an even higher level by using a projector. If you opt for a projector, you will be hitting the ball straight at the target because the image will be projected right in front of you in full size. On top of that, you’ll be able to invest in a unique screen material that is designed to withstand the powerful impact of a real golf ball.
I couldn’t possibly give you a straight answer which system is right for you, which is why working with a company who knows what they are doing can be of great benefit. A lot of golfers will purchase home golf simulators without really understanding how they will perform, and find themselves disappointed after spending several thousand dollars when they were hoping for something more.
Overall, this simulator works great, won’t break your bank, and would be a great gift for any golfer. Compared to other simulators, this one has an appealing price tag, so it should be within budget for anyone who loves the great game of golf. Of course, this unit will not replace a whole driving range or a real golf experience, but it does what it says on the package and will be a nice addition to your golf accessories.
In reality, a golf swing happens very quickly, and can be difficult to improve, especially when you don’t have analytics and recording technology to visualize the swing. Subtle adjustments can result in dramatic improvements – it’s critical you understand your individual swing dynamics. You don’t need to be computer savvy to use the Golf Studio. The integrated Golf Studio operates from a single touch screen, and is simple to use.

If you’re lucky enough to live in an area where there is a local golf center with simulators and indoor driving ranges/domes consider yourself blessed.  Today’s commercial golf simulators really are top of the line and the spacious room allowing you to use your full swing really is priceless.  Unfortunately though these simulators can be both crowded and costly as they look to cater to all of the other anxious golfers who are not so patiently awaiting the arrival of spring.
“As a professional golfer and tech enthusiast, I demand the best & most advanced equipment available. I love the HD Simulator because of its incredible realism & pinpoint accuracy. I was amazed at the technology and playing experience. My coach and I really like using the integrated video swing & weight transfer analysis to fine-tune my swing in real-time. When it comes to simulators, there is simply no comparison to HD Golf.” 
I am beginner golfer, only playing 3 months. i got this to save on going to the driving range constantly. I have only used it twice. I can say it is not only is it fun to be able to go out an hit anytime I want, i have probably saved over $60 in driving fees. 2 more times and the net will have paid for itself. The net and mat combo is great for beginners like me. I can hit until I drop.They are both well made, and heavier constructed that I thought. It is well worth the cost to get something that is life time warrantied. Don't' save money on the cheaper ones. Get this. You won't regret it
