About Alex White

Hey! I'm Alex.

Why You Can Trust Me

My mission is to bring you all the information you need to build your own home golf simulator! 

My content mission through mygolfsimulator.com is to provide you with highly accurate, in-depth, yet easy-to-understand information about topics across the breadth of the golf simulator industry.

I often used to find golf simulator product pages featured only superficial and conversion-focused information, which didn't really scratch the surface. I have tried to improve the quality of information available to the engaged golfer.

My approach is to present highly detailed yet easily digestible information to the reader. Where I recommend products, I only recommend those that I truly believe will provide quality and value to the golfer.

My day job is as a doctor in the UK, having graduated from Newcastle University (with MBBS) in 2014. I work in a large emergency department in the North of England. I like to relax after work by spending time with my son, who's learning to love golf too!

My Experience and Expertise in the Golf Simulator Industry

    • I have owned and operated mygolfsimulator.com since February 2020.

    • Over the last 3 and a half years, I have written extensively on the subject of indoor golf, golf simulator construction, and launch monitor technology. Over half a million words between published informational articles, one-to-one golf simulator consultations, and working closely with equipment manufacturers

    • My approach to this site has always involved a 'deep dive' into a subject, with highly detailed research, allowing me to present the best and most up-to-date information to the reader. I scour product information resources as well as customer reviews, customer troubleshooting, firmware update FAQs, product specifications, and more. This takes a significant amount of time, which has instilled in me a high level of subject knowledge. I could talk about golf simulator equipment all day!

    • I have designed and constructed several golf simulator builds from scratch over the last four years, each time allowing me to iteratively improve each facet of the build. I am working on a brand new build for late 2023 which will feature heavily on this site!

Alex's Golf Simulator Journey

I play off a 4 handicap but struggle to get enough practice time between work and the cold weather in the UK. I always wanted to have my own golf 'studio' at home. Then, a few years ago, I learned about golf simulators. Once I'd had my first session I was hooked! I knew I wanted my own!

The only problem is they can be expensive and require lots of space to build. I set out to learn all I could about the space requirements and equipment needed. I've turned what I've learned and my own experience into this site. 

My first simulator build was in the barn at my parents' farm. You can see from the image below that there were beams across the room that had to be 'accommodated' by my poor impact screen. This was less than ideal. I do think it was a creative way to get over my room dimension problems. I ran the risk of shanking one into the beam and getting a ricochet but I lived to tell the tale!
