So you want to improve your game however live to far from the driving range or just don't have the time in this modern age then you must be thinking or planning on getting a Golf Simulator at home...

After scrolling through the never ending pages online advising on how best to achieve this goal we thought we would put together a quick guide on how to put together your very own Golf Sim Enclosure package.

No1. Requirements 

Spaces is important, you will want a minimum of 2.7m ceiling height however we would recommend 3m as the magic number.

Width minimum 2.8m however you will need to understand that taking club path into account you would not be hitting center of the screen. To achieve hitting center of the screen you will need about 4.5m.

Depth minimum depending on Launch Monitor of choice you would need 5m. 

- 30 cm wall to screen

- 2.5m ball to screen 

leaves 2m behind the player to swing a driver.


No 2. Enclosure 

Once you know your room dimensions you can decide which enclosure would best fit your space - we recommend choosing an enclosure that fits within 5cm tolerance of your room dimensions to give you enough room to assemble. 

Simbox - comes in 6 sizes 

2.6 x 2.5 x 1.5m

3 x 2.5 x 1.5m

3.6 x 2.5 x 1.5m

4 x 2.5 x 1.5 m

4 x 3 x 3 m

Easy sim comes in 2 sizes poles or no poles 

2.5 x 2.5 x 1.3m 

3.5 x 2.5 x 1.3m 

Why no poles ? Shipping long poles aboard can prove expensive so we give you the option to source your own poles locally (this includes the UK).

We supply everything else;


Black Fabric Surround 

Pole fittings and bungees 


Impact Screens 

You also have the choice to upgrade your impact screen from the Lite to either;

Archery Baffle 

Pro Impact Screen 

Quad Pro Impact Screen  


No. 3 Launch Monitor 

We will write another blog on Launch Monitors however our enclosures work brilliantly with the likes of Optishot, Skytrak, Flightscope, Trackman & Garmin R10.


No 4. Hitting mats 

Hitting mats are always personal preference however popular mats include;

Insert Tee 

Standard Hitting mat 

Truestrike MK7 Single


No 5. Projectors 

Probably the most debated or discussed subject online choosing the right projector can feel like a minefield. Ultimately you need to find a projector that is going to fill the screen image either in a ratio 16:9 or 4:3 from a set distance you have in mind depending on your room whether this be floor or ceiling mounted. We will dive into projectors in more detail in future posts. 

Once you have your projector you just need to connect via a HDMI lead to your laptop or Ipad depending on launch monitor requirements.


There are many more extras you can choose for your simulator however this is the bare bones of what is required to play at home.

I hope this helps and I will be publishing more content in the near future!

Thanks for reading
