Golf Simulator Screen Guide
For golfers who want the full simulation experience in their house, using a projector is one of the best options. You are able to display your shots directly in front of you on a large screen that gives you an enhanced field of view.
If you decide to use a projector, then getting an impact screen that is capable of displaying graphics clearly is a necessity. Additionally, you'll want it to be strong enough to withstand the impact of your golf swings.
We have a couple of options for your home simulator available at Shop Indoor Golf.
A Few Considerations
One of the main things that can be a challenge with an impact screen is how you will actually install it. There are plenty of DIY methods that someone who is handy can rig up on their own. However, for those who don't want the headache of going that route, choosing a ready-made system might be a better idea.
Also, you will want to make sure you have enough space for your impact screen, projector setup, and of course to swing a club. Many people suggest a minimum ceiling height of 9 feet, 15 feet in room depth, and 8 feet in width.
The Net Return Pro Series Simulator Screen
The Net Return has a nice option available for customers who already have their Pro Series net.
It features a relatively easy installation using a series of velcro tabs. This is a great option for someone who has a multi-use room that is not just dedicated to golf simulator use.
The Net Return is known for its ability to return the ball right back to the golfer with ease. One thing to note is that the ball will not return as easily using the simulator screen (this is the case with almost every model).
It is made out of a high-grade material that is durable, can withstand shot impact, and display images from your projector very clearly.
For $295, this is a great value for golfers who are looking for an easy installation and still want a quality product.
HomeCourse Pro Retractable Simulator Screen
If you have the budget, the HomeCourse Pro Retractable screen is a real show stopper.
This can transform any room in your house into an instant golf simulation experience, and with the click of a button, you can make it disappear! Sounds too good to be true? Check out this video to see how it works (swanky room not included):
This product has been a game-changer for many golfers. While it does cost considerably more ($1,999), the features are pretty amazing.
With a wireless remote you can quickly lower or retract the hitting screen. Additionally, it comes with protective side barriers for those errant shots.
As you would expect, the material is a ballistic-grade screen that will protect anything behind it. Additionally, it can be mounted to either the ceiling or a wall, allowing for multiple applications.
If you are building a more premium setup this is a great option that won't require you to make a permanent structure.
Wrapping It Up
Golfers who want to use a projector for their home simulator have several options out there. If you don't want to go the DIY route, these are two great products we recommend to our customers that will last for a long time and give you an enjoyable experience.
