here's a shorter step-by-step guide to building a basic golf simulator:
Step 1: Determine Budget and Space – Decide how much you can spend and where you'll set up the simulator.
Step 2: Choose Your Setup – Decide on a launch monitor setup, a projector-based setup, or a full-swing simulator, based on your budget and space.
Step 3: Select a Launch Monitor – Choose a launch monitor like SkyTrak or GC2, depending on your needs.
Step 4: Get the Necessary Hardware – Get a computer that meets software requirements, a hitting mat, net (if needed), and screen (if using a projector).
Step 5: Install Hardware – Set up the hitting area, install the projector (if applicable), and ensure everything is secure.
Step 6: Install Simulator Software – Install and configure simulator software like The Golf Club 2019.
Step 7: Calibrate and Test – Calibrate the system by hitting practice shots to ensure accuracy.
Step 8: Fine-Tune and Enjoy – Adjust settings to your liking, such as clubhead speed and course conditions, and start enjoying your golf simulator.
Remember that building a golf simulator may require technical expertise for calibration and fine-tuning, so be prepared for some troubleshooting.
