How Much Space Does a Golf Simulator Need?

Category : Blog

Every golf enthusiast has dreamed of having their own state-of-the-art simulator set-up in their own home as there is nothing better than being able to slip away for a few hours of quiet practice without disturbing the family in the process. Here at ProTee, our state-of-the-art systems are designed to be as immersive as possible so that you feel like you are playing on a real course and are therefore able to take what you’ve learned and implement it accordingly. There is a common misconception that simulator technology is bulky and requires a large amount of space, however this couldn’t be further from the truth.

You may have been led to believe that a simulator requires an expansive room in order to be used appropriately, however the space that they call for simply falls down to safety and the swinging motion of your clubs. After all, you don’t want to be worrying about hitting the projection screen or ceiling each time you use your simulator. As a general rule, the room should deliver a 3-10m distance between the golfer and the screen in order to allow for a comfortable swinging motion, and have a width of 4.5-15 feet depending on whether or not it is going to accommodate both left and right-handed players.

Safety is of the upmost importance when it comes to simulator set-ups, and these distances are in place to prevent players from being injured. After all, the projection screens are designed to absorb the impact of the ball and prevent it flying around the room, however this can be poorly executed if there isn’t enough space to work with. Luckily, a golf simulator is a fairly versatile piece of equipment so it can be installed in whichever room the client chooses, however the majority of homeowners tend to repurpose their garage, basement or spare room as these typically meet the space requirements deemed necessary.

There are certain factors to take into consideration when you are thinking about investing in a golf simulator as a lack of preparation can have devastating consequences. As a fixed installation, it is recommended that you avoid moving your set-up in order to reap the full benefits from the technology, however there are exceptions to this rule if you are moving house or having renovation work done. To find out whether your home is suitable for a simulator set-up, speak to a member of the ProTee team today!

Awesome They have been exceeding every expectation from other reviews I have read. I have never had better customer service for any other product. Jamie worked diligently to get my system to do the best it can for my space and I would recommend him every time.

Great, friendly and affordable Very good experience so far my project isn't finished yet will update in due course but Dave and Jamie are two genuine people who just want the best for their customers. Nothing is to much trouble and they are always available through email or phone when needing advice.
