Winter is upon us in the New York, NY area, and outdoor activities such as golf are suspended until spring. If you are among the 25 million people in the US who play golf regularly, you are most likely itching to get back on the greens.
Adding an in-home golf simulator can help get you off the couch and out of the season’s doldrums. As part of your residential smart home components, you can work on your game at any time.

Spend even a few hours in your media room watching ESPN or the Golf Channel; it is very likely you have witnessed LPGA and PGA tour professionals practicing on an indoor home golf simulator.
The technology allows you to play rounds of golf over simulations of world-renowned courses. While the systems cannot match playing over your local club’s greens, the experience does effectively blur the lines when it comes to improving your game.
Much like playing over streaming action games, the simulator creates an immersive environment that works to convince your brain, and therefore your body motions, that the distances are real. The technology is not unlike that used in home theater installations.
A high-resolution rear projector presents the field of play with incredible detail, often with remarkable sound to complete the experience. The high-impact screen senses your ball’s location and translates it into the screen’s action.
2020 saw a rise in overall attendance at courses across the country. It seems that golf is the perfect pandemic sport with its wide-open spaces and built-in social distancing. According to Golf.com,
“The National Golf Foundation reported that in August 2020 rounds played in the United States were up 20.6 percent, the largest year-over-year increase since the numbers began being tabulated a quarter-century ago. Then September smashed the record by increasing 26 percent year-over-year, representing about 12 million more rounds.”
With a home golf simulator, you can make the most of your practice time, avoiding the crowds and prying eyes at the range. The sport is one that fosters family involvement; guiding your kids into it is more comfortable with a simulator. At home, beginners can develop the essential skill in the climate-controlled comfort of your home without public performance pressure.
The weather outside may tempt you to hunker down with blankets and hot buttered scones and marathon binge shows, but with an in-home golf simulator, you can have family fun and lower your handicap.
