How Much Does an Indoor Golf Simulator Cost?

by Dec 27, 2022Uncategorized

If you’re looking to have a golf simulator installed here in Vancouver, you will want to budget for something in the range of $50K – $150K. I realize that is a pretty wide range, so let’s explore the variable costs, considerations and add-ons that go into a typical indoor golf simulator:

1. The Room: first you need to decide where the simulator will be housed. Typically for residential applications that will be in the garage or basement (if you have tall ceilings). The absolute minimum dimensions of the room should be 12’ L, 10’W and 10’H but obviously the bigger, the better. Each brand of simulator has specific requirements, so be sure to check with them first. Another option is to build out a shed in the backyard, however this will likely involve permits and a budget north of $150K. One other consideration in choosing the room is the loud noise from hitting golf balls with a driver.

2. The Technology: this is where you will need to do the most research. A recreational golfer will have different needs than a tour pro, but generally you get what you pay for. Trackman, Foresight and Full Swing are among the top 3 from our experience and each has different models depending on what you’re looking for. You can also purchase individual golf courses to play on the simulator via a software download. Consult with the reps to get more information on the tech itself which includes the launch monitor, projector, cameras, screen, etc.

3. Extras: This includes everything else such as the impact screen, netting, artificial turf, putting green, Puttview Technology, a bar, seating, etc. You may want to try Googling Golf Simulator Ideas or check out Pinterest for some inspiration. The only limitations are your imagination and your budget!

In summary, if you’re a recreational golfer looking for a cost-efficient approach, you can still get a great set up for ~$50K, however for serious golfers we do recommend investing in the top technology so you can get true feedback just like the pros. For that we would suggest a starting budget of $70K +
