The best test: swing a driver in your space and see if have the clearance. A minimum room size approximately 13'x16'. Minimum height for most ceiling mounted tracking units is 9 feet. If you can swing a club - we can probably put a sim in it!
There are a few factors that come into the design of your room. For example, if you want the room to have seating for spectators or home theatre, or if you need room set for both right and left-handed golfers you may need additional space. A typical golfer will need a minimum of 7 feet from the hitting area to the wall behind them in order to safely swing a driver. You don't want to feel cramped so a bigger space is ideal. Any netting or screen will have to be 16 inches off the back wall to allow for the screen to safely absorb the impact of the ball. The teeing area of the ball should be a minimum of 8ft from the screen, with 10-12 feet being preferred.
We sell most simulator brands and swing analysis systems so we will recommend the best match for your budget and design needs.
Since all of our home golf simulators are custom, the pricing depends on your size of your room, choices of technology, software and room finishes. A small room with base technology can start somewhere around $40,000 USD.
Yes, and it is awesome! Our custom screens are made of high-quality material and are made to project an image onto at a high resolution. Of course, the quality of projector that you choose is also a factor in the quality of image that you will get on your screen. It is also important to consider the desired size ratio of the image in your space. For example, at 8 feet high, a 4:3 image will need a minimum of 10’6” of width, a 16:10 image will need 12’9” of width, and a 16:9 will need 14’1” of width.
