Full Swing Indoor Golf Simulators

By Steve Silverman

Golf simulators are one of the most versatile golf items on the market today. A golf simulator can be used as entertainment in your home. If you want to play Pebble Beach one day, Torrey Pines the next and Bethpage Black the day after, you can do it realistically in a golf simulator. If you want to practice your swing without going to the driving range, you can do it in a golf simulator. If you want to buy new clubs, you can have your swing analyzed in a golf simulator and have a better idea of what type of clubs best suit your game.

Home entertainment

A golf simulator gives you the ability to play world-class courses without leaving your own home. The golf simulator is enclosed and can be designed to fit any room you want. You will have your choice of 50 courses. If you are interested in playing against others online, you have that capability with your golf simulator. Using the touch screen is easy and allows you to switch from course to course instantaneously.

Commercial Use

Maybe you own a sports bar, a pool hall or a multi-purpose gym. Buying full-service golf simulators will give your customers another recreational option and give you a full-time income stream. Clients love the opportunity to either play world famous courses or get their swings analyzed. A session in a golf simulator is like working with a swing coach. The customer will get a full analysis printed out by the golf simulator's computer system.

Fitting Golf Clubs

This is used by golf pro shops, golf specialty stores and full-service golf shops. The golf simulator takes the guess work out of buying new golf clubs. With just a few swings in the simulator, the fitter will know the golfer's swing speed, launch angle and spin rate. That information will help the fitter find the clubs that best suits the golfer's game in a very short period of time.
