Golf Simulators: What Every Buyer Should Look For
Golf Simulator technology has catapulted forward from the days of seeming like you are playing something that is just one step above a carnival game. The best simulators on the market have gone from things to pass the time, to training tools with high precision and realistic golf experiences that have golfers worldwide lining up to improve their overall game.
WHAT DOES A GREAT GOLF SIMULATOR LOOK LIKE?
A number of Golf Simulator companies are out there, and countless Models to boot. Knowing how to differentiate is where we can help.
On the lower cost end, there are simulators that use golf hitting mats to calculate the golf shot. As a result, they focus less on the true details of a player’s game and provide less of a long term rewarding experience.
Higher end and frankly, the best and most advanced Golf Simulators on the market, use either a laser tracking system, or computer vision based high-speed cameras. These track both the club and the golf ball.
These simulators allow golfers to track their speed and range when hitting a regular golf ball with their very own clubs. No need to grab the nearest club and start swinging. Instead, bring your custom clubs to the action and feel like you are right on the green.
WHAT MAKES UP A SIMULATOR?
Simulators use projector technology displaying computer-generated golf courses in front of the golfer. All the while, simultaneously displaying their statistics. These stats include a multitude of items such as speed and range.
The old days of finding golf simulators typically at amusement parks and traveling shows has drastically been altered thanks to advancements in technology. Visual Sport has installed their Golf Simulators in businesses, training centers, private homes, and even at large-scale sporting and entertainment events and attractions. You’ll even see them in motion on the great seas aboard Disney Cruise Line.
WHO IS GOING TO GIVE ME THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS?
What sets a Visual Sports Simulator apart from other high-end Golf Simulator companies is our powerful precision software. Our V-Track camera system captures ball flight data at 2000 frames per second (that is more than 30x faster than any high-definition video out there)!
However our new SwingTrack™, swing analysis system truly sets out Golf Simulator apart.
