Only a few years ago it wasn’t really possible for most people to have a personal golf simulator in their home – but that’s no longer the case. Today there are affordable simulators, monitors and projectors making it far easier for just about anyone to have their own golf practice space at home. That means more people than ever are taking their garage, spare room or office space and turning it into a golf simulator.
If you would love to have your own simulator please get in contact with Golf Swing Systems today.

A friendly member of the team will be happy to provide you with any information you need or to help take your query forward.
What dimensions do you need?
Many customers first need to know the kind of space requirements that are necessary to have a golf simulator in your home. You will need the follow dimensions:
- Height: At least 8 ½ feet in height – but functionally you need enough space to swing your club comfortably
- Width: The room must be at least 9 feet wide
- Depth: The room should be at last 13 feet deep
- The screen must be at least 1 foot away from the back wall
- You must be at least 8 feet away from the screen to tee off
What goes in the room?
If you have a space with these minimum requirements, we can help you create a fantastic golf simulator to suit your needs. All we need to know are the dimensions of your room and we will be able to provide you with a price for your golf enclosure. Our made-to-measure enclosure system comes with:
- A frame
- An all-in-one enclosure with no gaps between the roof, sides and back
- A made-to-measure projection screen
Our enclosures are designed to be used with any of the golf simulators available on the market. Our previous customers have used simulators including Optishot, SkyTrak, Foresight GC2, Flightscope, Trackman, Sports Coach, Golfzon, Tru Golf, Dead Solid, Ernest Sports and many more.
Which projector is right for you?
There are thousands of projectors in the market place and they all do different jobs depending on the brightness of the room, size of picture required, quality of picture required and position of where the projector can go.
For example, this is a short throw projector position on the floor and covered up for protection 10 feet from the screen giving a 4:3 Ratio 13 ⅓ feet wide x 10 feet high.
Projectors usually work on 3 different ratios, 4:3 16:9 and 16:10, so for example a picture 13 ½ feet wide x 10 feet high is a 4:3 ratio. Golf Projection screens that are smaller than 13 ½ feet wide therefore have a gap at the top and bottom as the width is filled on the 4:3 ratio but not the top.
16:9 Ratio projector 16 ½ feet wide x 10ft high with the projector suspended from the ceiling 20ft from the screen.
The most popular way to project is hanging from the ceiling. Most projector manufactures provide a projector that can produce a 4:3 ration filling a 13 ⅓ feet wide x 10 feet high screen from 13 ½ feet from the screen as pictured.
As you can see the projector is suspended from our golf simulator enclosure which is 13 ½ feet wide x 13 ½ feet deep and 10ft high.
Whatever the size and space you have, as long as you can swing a club then we can install the golf simulator of your dreams. Get in touch with us today to discuss your requirements.
