Every golfer knows the frustration of having only barely gotten around to a well-deserved day on the green, navigating busy schedules and household chores this way and that, only to be confronted by a ghastly storm bound to last all weekend. ‘Next weekend’ doesn’t hold a great deal of promise either, since securing tee time is oftentimes a struggle, especially after precious days outside cancelled by the forces of nature.
The really good news is that subject to a bit of money being at your disposal, these and other problems can all be made to die an instant death. And its all thanks to what golfers can now find lying about in the simulator space. A vast selection of digital options will have you ‘out and about’ and playing your best game in absolutely no time.
Golfzon Vision Premium
We thought it best to get started on the premium end of the scale, since money-wise, things can only get better from here on out. First up then: Golfzon’s Vision Premium. What sets this particular simulator miles apart form the rest (except for the prize tag, which we’ll get to in a minute), is that unlike most “stationary” simulators, the Vision Premium system makes use of an actual moving platform.
Whether you’re making hour way up a hill or down a sidehill slope, Golfzon’s premium golf simulator has the right surface for the right job. It even changes consistency so as to simulate fairway, rough and sand as you make your way through 190 of the most elegant and beautiful courses you’ll ever have the pleasure of laying eyes on. And considering what you get, the $46,000 price tag is an absolute steal, and you can even spend what you win when you bet apuestas Mexico on it.
Hopping right into the value-for-money section, we have SkyTrak. By now pretty much the industry standard, instead of making use of a permanent display, SkyTrak’s system utilises a portable launch monitor that can be hooked up to any smart device or pc.
Best of all is that its completely wireless and compatible with a range of currently-trending golf game simulators for pc and mobile. Not unlike its pricier competitor, it comes standard with full internet connectivity, which of course means game on to challenges issued by friends or other online challengers. And at a considerably cheaper $1,999 (plus $100 per year for the software), this one’s a true winner in our books.
And then there’s Foresight Sports – in many ways, the perfect in-betweener as faras price and options go. In the box you’ll find a mountable screen, projector, hitting mat, computer cart and a stylish desktop.
Users not only get to interact with other golfers around the world, but they may choose whether to play at top courses like St. Andrews, at Merion or even at Pebble Beach. Data save-ability makes tracking progress a hoot. Considering everything that’s included, one would expect to pay a whole lot more than the perfectly reasonable $10,150 price tag.
