Jim McLean’s 8 Step Swing, which incorporates the swings of Ernie Els, Ben Hogan and Tiger Woods, is an additional feature many HD Golfers decide to add to their simulators. Step by step, a golfer is able to perfect every element of their swing. The simulator records and analyzes a golfer’s swing in real time. When the system detects that the golfer’s position and swing are out of the “corridor of success” or have committed a “death move”, the simulator will automatically alert the golfer and present virtual coaching from Jim McLean.

Our stringent quality control combined with complete support contributes to a greater than 99% simulator uptime. Additionally, HD Golf™ pioneered Remote Diagnostics in the golf simulator industry, which allows us to remotely solve any challenge quickly and efficiently.
2) You should choose the SkyTrak Compact Golf Simulator if you don't have a 12’ wide or 16' deep space that the SwingBay requires. We’d recommend the SkyTrak Compact Golf Simulator Package with rooms that are between 10’ to 12' wide and 12’ to 16' deep. The Compact has a smaller hitting bay and a smaller projectable area than the SwingBay, but has a lower price normally starting at $6,599. The SkyTrak Compact is a great value for smaller simulator rooms.
The OptiShot features a practice mode with visual feedback plus you can play best ball or match play among other game types, and you can even customize the weather. The system itself requires a laptop or desktop computer to work (this will add to your total simulator budget if you don’t already own one) that can be hooked up to the TV or streamed to a projector.
The Tittle X Golf Simulator air flow pack comes with the Title X swing analyzer device, a swing stick, a safety stick, and 12 TruGolf E6 fantasy courses, powered by the TruGolf E6 software that is installed on your computer, supported by your smartphone or smart device via Bluetooth. To use it you simply have to mount your Title X device on to your swing stick or your golf club and pair it with the E6 software on your computer. Meanwhile, the Title X sensor will allow the software to show you how it would look in real life by sharing the precise information of your swing with the software. The product is sized specifically to suit indoor environments and provides you with the freedom to practice your swings regardless of the weather conditions outside.
This device performs very well considering the price compared to multi-thousand dollar launch monitors. It's extremely easy to use and carry in my bag. I had a problem with it when it first arrived and called Voice Caddy. They were available on the phone, listened to my problem and asked me to send the unit to them. Within hours of them getting the unit, they identified the problem, phoned to tell me about it and shipped it back to me. Not every product is going to work 100% of the time out of the box, it's how the company responds that is important. Voice Caddy did a great job responding.
This is hands down the best golf simulator you can get for sheer value and features. There are a few others that offer a bit more, but not by much. This one is pricey, but it is well worth the investment, thanks to the included screen, the high quality equipment and the accurate readouts that help you improve your game and make you feel like you are really playing on a course.

Sophisticated golf simulator systems such as those found in most modern commercial simulators can cost upwards of $50k. While these systems perform amazingly they’re well over our home build budget. Here we’re recommending using the OptiShot as the “brains” of your home golf simulator because its performance is unrivaled in the $500 and under price range. The “brains” of your system is where you’ll want to spend the majority of your budget because if the simulator itself is not functioning correctly you’re left with nothing more than some balls and a net.
Although the infrared sensors are the Optishot’s main features, it might not be enough for the experienced golfer. The reason is that this device will not measure the golf ball like many other systems out there. You’ll likely make a great shot every single time you hit the ball because OptiShot does not take into account gear effect and therefore doesn’t track the ball.
