Why is the garage perfect for golf?

These reasons highlight the practicality and benefits of setting up a golf simulator in the garage, making it an ideal location for those looking to enjoy the game from the comfort of their own home.

  • Space Utilization

    A garage is a common place to set up a golf simulator. (And while many of us would have zero qualms setting up our simulator directly beside the bed.) Many homeowners might not have enough room inside their house for such a setup, or they might not want to disturb other members of the household.

  • Flexibility

    Some golf simulators designed for garages can be retracted or disassembled quickly and easily. This is especially useful for those who share their garage space with vehicles and need to make room quickly.

  • Safety

    Using a simulator in the garage ensures that golf balls are contained within a safe space, reducing the risk of damage to household items or injury. (There are usually less windows in the garage!)

  • Convenience

    Having a golf simulator in the garage means that golf enthusiasts can practice and play anytime they want, without the need to travel to a golf course or driving range. Further, the garage is often a place that allows the most flexibility and access when considering factors such as wiring or mounting projectors.

Things to consider in your garage golf setup

These reasons highlight the practicality and benefits of setting up a golf simulator in the garage, making it an ideal location for those looking to enjoy the game from the comfort of their own home.

  • Space Requirements

    In most cases, your garage should be at least 10'W x 10'L x 9'H for a smaller mat and net setup. For a larger setup with a hitting enclosure like SigPro, you'll want an extra 6' of length to accommodate a projector. For the SkyTrak Sig10 Golf Simulator Package, a space of at least 11'W x 16'L x 9'H is recommended. Ensure you have confidence in making full swings without hesitation in the chosen area. For those with narrow garages, there are specific golf simulator packages designed for such spaces. For instance, the Indoor Golf Shop SIG 8 package requires only 9ft of total width and can fit within 9ft of ceiling height.

  • Electrical and Internet Needs

    A robust electrical setup is crucial. Additionally, a stable internet connection will enhance your online gaming experience. Depending on how stable your WiFi signal is, you may need to be thinking about a WiFi Extender, adding mesh WiFi, or running an ethernet connection to your setup.

  • Security

    Your golf simulator equipment is very valuable! Ensure your garage golf simulator setup is secure. It can be important to consider extra measures like cameras, locks, and alarms in your budget.

  • Heating and Cooling

    Although durable, proper temperature control and lighting can enhance your golfing experience and better protect your equipment over time. Consider whether investing in AC or heating might be necessary for your region.
