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.
Not Considering Your Needs– Do you really need a simulator with all the bells and whistles? Do you need one that offers dozens of simulated courses when you will really only play a couple courses in real life? It depends on how far you want to go with your training and if you use the simulator as a substitute for the real thing. Some people use simulators to experience what other courses are like that they will never visit, and you need to factor in your preferences when you purchase a simulator to ensure you are getting something that fits you well.
I work part time as an IT security consultant. Luckily I can work from anywhere so I go back and forth between Colorado and Florida. I get my fix of skiing, hiking and camping in Colorado in the Dillion area, and when I am in Florida you can usually find me on the water either paddleboarding or kayaking. My recent passion is scuba diving, I got certified a few years ago and "get wet" as frequently as I can.
Not only can you record your swings, but you can actually replay them in a 360-degree view. This basically means that you do not just view your swing as if a camera recorded it, but instead, you get to see it from any angle you like, giving you an intimate understanding of how you perform. On top of all that, the fact that it offers 8 hours of battery time against only 1.5 hours of charging makes it very convenient to own.

Competitors typically use lower cost, inferior components, such as: Home PC’s to run their simulators, which tend to suffer from instability and frequent required updates. They also use polypropylene turf, single element-screens with high elasticity-rebound and reduced longevity. Both screens & turf last a half-life when compared to our in-house designed screens & turf. Other areas of compromise extend to their 3rd party cameras which capture your swing, but don’t form a complete alliance with the rest of the system.
Those of you golfers who live in cold climates and can’t always go to the range will significantly appreciate this device. It includes pretty accurate infrared sensors that will measure the club-head speed and point-of-impact by shooting about 10,000 pulses per second at you both before and after impact. Then, the OptiShot software will process the information and give you a fairly accurate illustration of your shot.
