While professional golf simulation technology has been available for over 40 years, indoor golf simulators have come a long way since then. What used to cost consumers over $100,000 is now readily available and a fraction of that cost. But it’s not just financial improvements – this technology has become more accurate, reliable, and even portable.

Beyond the hardware advancements, golf simulation software is now more realistic and immersive than ever before. In addition to providing meaningful statistics and analytics like: Ball Speed, Launch Angle, Back Spin, Club Head Speed, Club Path, Club Face, and more - LiDAR scans make it possible to map and recreate real-world courses accurate within centimeters. When these recreations are paired with realistic physics models, like E6 CONNECT, the result is stunning. Users can shape shots and play the game just like they would outside.

Not only is home golf simulator technology transforming how individual golfers play, but the entire sport of golf as a whole. Launch Monitor technology and golf simulation software is helping Club Manufacturers design clubs and fit consumers for shafts, clubs, and balls. To help you understand how game-changing indoor golf simulators truly are, the specialists at TruGolf put together an all-inclusive guide. Here is what you should know.
