My 9 year old daughter has been playing Golf since she was 3 years old and spends most of her time in the Golf course or the range. Last year I splurged and had a Putting, chipping green and also a Bunker installed in our back yard. That allowed us to spend more time at home and also decreased our practice time in half. I said to her the only thing missing is a Virtual Golf course.
Up to this point you probably have about $800-$1,000 wrapped up in the OptiShot and your projector along with another $300 if you’ve built a permanent enclosure, but luckily those represent the last of the major purchases for your home golf simulator.  The rest of the items used in the simulator can be purchased at your discretion to maximize the feel of a real golf outing.

I am doing a DYI system and would like to have a left and right handed tee position. I only have 12 feet between my walls. The system I have allows to move the hitting position off center by 2 feet. When I set that up, it doesn’t seem like there is enough space between the two hitting areas to stand. What is the preferred spacing and what position do you recommend?
Almost every single simulator package is going to require a computer to run its software. Hardware is an added cost that many golfers will not consider. It’s possible you may already have a laptop, tablet, or desktop option that is capable of running the software. Most systems will require a more robust graphics card, which you can easily upgrade on an older computer if you are handy.
Some systems could cost you as much as $50,000 – $70,000. High-end home golf simulators can be outfitted in nice enclosures, and have the best of everything. If your budget fits into this premium category, it’s best to work with a home golf simulator company directly. It’s a significant investment, and you want to make sure you are going to be satisfied with your money.
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.

Our Flex Space golf simulator package does just this. Featuring a retractable golf simulator screen, and a golf mat that can be rolled up like a rug and put away, this package allows you to convert any room in your home into your own personal golf sanctuary. The best part is once your done, simply retract the screen and store your golf mat, and your space returns back into its original form.

Welcome to Virtual Golf 2. This latest software update to TrackMan’s simulator golf solutions delivers an experience that redefines what is possible to achieve in a simulator environment. Every training session, every hole you play, every fun tournament you have with your friends… it’s all faithful to the true feeling of the game. World-famous courses appear in simply stunning detail. The gameplay is unbelievably smooth, all your club and ball data is shown with unerring, pinpoint accuracy. So if you think you know what simulator golf can do, think again.

In the value section, SkyTrak has established itself as the industry standard. Rather than a permanent display, SkyTrak is a portable simulator, essentially a launch monitor that can be hooked up (wirelessly) to a smart tablet or personal computer. But don’t let the lack of bells and whistles fool you. SkyTrak is also compatible with The Golf Club Game which offers 150,000 courses—like Bandon Dunes, Erin Hills and Chambers Bay, plus those created by users—and live tournaments for competition with friends or online challengers.
