About Me

Hey! I’m Alex.

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

I play off a 4 handicap but struggle to get enough practice time in both with 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 go on one 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!

I hope mygolfsimulator.com helps you on your journey to better golf at home! 


“Simulators and design can be a challenging task. As a high school golf coach I knew what I wanted but didn’t know exactly how to get there.  Alex has been instrumental in effectively laying out, designing and implementing our school’s golf laboratory for our kids.  He has taken the blank canvas we were given and step by step walked us through everything we have needed.  He is very attentive to detail and his communication has been great.  I look forward to continue to working with him in the future to meet all of our golf instruction needs.“

“I asked Alex for help with designing a backyard shed-style golf simulator. I had lots of questions, and there are a lot of considerations to make. I wanted to make sure things were perfect before moving forward with the design and realizing when it’s too late that something wouldn’t work or would be less than ideal. Alex has so much experience with the golf simulator industry and is a wealth of knowledge. He thoroughly reviewed my initial designs and made important recommendations that ensured the outcome will be great. He was not only super pleasant to work with, but generous and thoughtful with his time and insights. I’d highly recommend working with him should you need help with anything related to the golf simulator space. You won’t be disappointed!”
