Many of the common questions that we get asked about a Golf Simulator can be found below:
Q: How do I know I'm getting the right advice?
A: Golf Tech are an independent provider of Golf Simulators. If a specific system is not in our portfolio there will be a good reason why. This will be because another system may offer much more for little difference in money. Our goal is to provide you with the correct system.
Q: How much Space do i need?
A: We have installed Simulators into various sizes. 3 metre width is a minimum but for both right and left handed players we recommend 4.5 - 5 metres. A 6 metre room length will cover any of our tracking devices to operate. However more space is recommended to allow for seating etc. Ceiling height we recommend 3 metre minimum however if you have enough room to swing freely, that is what matters.
Q: What system is best for me & how do I try the system?
A: We recommend booking a demo at our HQ in Oxfordshire. This way we can look at all aspects to find the system that's right for you.
Q: What technology is used in the Golf Simulator?
A: We used both camera and radar devices for tracking. Both have pro's and cons but one will be better suited for your requirements.
Q; What software do you recommend?
A: We have access to numerous software and the Uneekor Devices allow for these to be installed. Each have their benefits and again these can be tested to suit your needs on a demonstration.
Q: What PC do you sell?
A: Our Pc's are very high specification. Currently we run I7 or Ryzen machines with 3070 graphics card.
Q:What Projector do I need?
A: This will be dependent on your screen size and budget. We opt for Panasonic on many installs because of the quality and features these produce.
