FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Room size is the number one question we get asked about golf simulators, and our answer is dependent on a few factors. If the intent is to just install a functional golf simulator, then a room size of 10 ft. tall, 15 ft. wide and 20 ft. deep would suit your needs. In instances where you want to create a holistic experience for friends and family, then 25 ft. long is ideal. If your room doesn’t quite meet the minimum requirements listed above, don’t panic – CONTACT US and we’ll happily take the time to better understand your unique needs before walking you through the options that are right for you, your space and your vision.

Generally speaking, 9 ft. ceilings are the minimum requirement for a golf simulator, with 10 ft. being considered a more “comfortable’ height. As is the case with any significant home or business investment, consulting with an golf simulator installation professional prior to purchasing your golf simulator is highly recommended.

When it comes to mounting, there is, regrettably no rule of thumb or silver bullet answer for where to mount it. Every projector has a unique throw distance (the distance from the tip of the projector’s lens to the screen) which is affected by your impact screen’s size and aspect ratio. Given how critical this is to setup accurately, we recommend consulting with an golf simulator installation professional before purchasing.

In an ideal world, we like to put the ball 12 feet from the screen. That said, we can work in tigher spaces, and can still design a great simulator, for example with a 10 ft. distance from ball to screen.

No, unfortunately you can not use any projector to for a golf simulator. Office quality projectors or large venue projectors, for example, typically don’t have the appropriate throw distance (the distance from the tip of the projector’s lens to the screen). Additionally, the brighter your room is the more important the measured lumens (brightness) of your proejector matters as well, so be sure to consult an expert in golf simulators before purchasing so that you’re not disapointed in the quality of the results.
