How to Buy a Golf Simulator for your Home
Selecting a golf simulator for you and your family can feel like a daunting task. With a wealth of options and choices in the market today, it’s easy to feel overwhelmed. Luckily, we’re here to help you select a simulator that can best fit your needs! We’ll give you some tips and pointers to help you narrow down your search and settle on a simulator that satisfies you and your family.
First and foremost, a simulator needs space to be installed in your home. Luckily, advances in golf simulator technology allows for quality simulators to be flexible in their space requirements as well as their price point. For SwingTrack, our ideal space is 16 ft wide x 10 ft high x 20 ft deep but our designers will work closely with you to build a customized simulator that suits your space, needs, and aesthetic. Our smallest simulator model, the V-10, can actually fit in a space 10 ft x 10 ft x 10 ft!

If you have the space, then you need to consider what you want out of your simulator. Most golf simulators will either use a laser tracking system or high-speed camera to track your club swing, golf ball impact, and ball flight to deliver a wealth of data to help you improve your game. If improving your game is a priority, then you will want a simulator that can provide you with the data and feedback you need to boost your game. SwingTrack simulators, for example, utilize our V-Track camera system to capture both ball flight at 2000 frames per second and club swing that you can replay frame by frame. The result is real-time capture of your shot data; including club path, club face angle, as well as point of impact. With all that data, you’ll have everything you need to shape your shot. Simulators also recreate the feel of playing golf in addition to providing data feedback. Detailed computer-generated golf courses make you feel like you’re actually playing at Pebble Beach or Oakmont. We have to say, it feels amazing to play at Innisbrook in the middle of winter! With SwingTrack, our simulators feature over 80 of the world’s most renowned golf courses.
Our last tip and the final piece of this puzzle is your family and what they can get out of the golf simulator. If your family is just as crazy about golf as you are then great, you’re all done! If not however, don’t worry because SwingTrack has that covered. Going beyond other simulators on the market, SwingTrack offers multiple sports games on top of our excellent golf simulation.
