My Early Golf Simulator Journey

As a keen golfer playing off a 4 handicap, I’ve always faced the challenge of balancing practice time with my professional commitments and the often unforgiving UK weather. This led me to dream of having my own ‘golf studio’ at home, a dream that became a focused interest when I discovered golf simulators. After my first experience with a golf simulator, I was captivated and determined to have one of my own.

However, I quickly realized that owning a golf simulator involves significant investment and space considerations. Driven by my passion for the sport and a desire to overcome these challenges, I embarked on a comprehensive journey to understand the intricacies of golf simulator builds. This website is a culmination of that journey, where I share my knowledge and personal experiences to help others.

My initial foray into building a golf simulator was in a barn at my parents’ farm. The setup, as shown in the image below, was far from ideal, with room beams posing a unique challenge to the placement of the impact screen. Despite these constraints, I found creative solutions to adapt to the limited space. This experience, including the occasional risk of a ball ricocheting off a beam, was not only a testament to my commitment to the sport but also provided valuable insights that I now share with my readers.

Through this site, I aim to offer practical advice and solutions, drawing from my personal experiences and extensive research. Whether you’re facing space constraints or budget limitations, my goal is to guide you in creating your ideal home golf simulator setup.
