What Is a Golf Simulator?

Simply put, golf simulators are a way for you to enjoy the game of golf indoors. Whether you are hoping to get some practice in on the range or wanting to play a game on some of the world’s most famous courses, a simulator gives you the opportunity to do both! These machines provide you with data to improve your swing and a visual representation of your ball flight to see exactly how your ball would act on the course. They also give you the chance to have a blast playing a full round of golf in your own home. For questions about the kinds of simulators we install, contact us today!

How Do They Work?

Golf simulators aim to recreate the outdoor golf experience as accurately as possible. It starts by designating an area where you will hit the ball from. Once contact is made, data is collected from your swing and ball and interpreted by a computer. This data is then used to portray a realistic ball flight and projected onto the screen in front of you! In practice mode, this data allows you to make tweaks to your swing. In playing mode, you get to see exactly what your ball would do over the fairway or green of courses like TPC Scottsdale or Torrey Pines South.

What Do You Need?

What exactly do you need for all of that to happen? The first thing you need is a place for the simulator to live like a garage or basement with enough headroom to swing a golf club. You will also need a launch monitor to record data on your swing, a projector, a system to interpret and integrate your launch monitor and projector, and someone to help you install it. The last two things are where Virtual Tee comes in. We can help you gather everything you need to build a simulator and install it for you so that you don’t have to worry about the work it takes to build!
