A COMMERCIAL GOLF SIMULATOR CAN BE USED FOR LEAGUES, LESSONS, PRACTICE, TOURNAMENTS AND SPECIAL EVENTS
A golf simulator can be a huge profit center at a golf course in the winter months, pro shops for lessons and fittings, freestanding business with multiple golf simulators and at a bar or restaurant to entertain customers.
GOLF COURSES/PRO SHOPS are always looking for new ways to generate revenue and profits. When the weather is bad, revenue stops and your members look for new ways to spend their entertainment dollar. A golf simulator can keep your member’s golf game at its best year round. Members will love being able to play year round and generate income for the club as well. At 25/30 an hour, a golf simulator can pay for itself in less than a season. Plus you get the added income of opening the bar/restaurant. Members will end up spending more on food/drink, than on the golf simulator. You have a captive audience for 2-4 hours! Club and teaching pros can use them for lessons as well. Email us for our commercial projections.
FREESTANDING BUSINESSES We have done several golf simulator businesses with anywhere from 2 to 6 golf simulators. We also provide golf simulator layouts to fit our customer’s exact requirements. Golf simulators can be used for lessons, leagues, tournaments and special events. Most golf simulator businesses also serve food/drink for additional revenue. We can also provide commercial projections based on your location, # of simulators and type of golf simulator.
BAR/RESTAURANT Adding a golf simulator to a bar is extremely profitable venture. We recently did a 2 golf simulator setup in a bar in Myrtle Beach. Profits and beverage sales have skyrocketed. Remember, it takes 1 golfer 1 hour to play 18 holes on a golf simulator. 4 golfers are in your bar for 4 hours! Imagine how much they will spend on food/drink?
COMMERCIAL GOLF SIMULATOR BASICS
You need a 10 high x 15 wide x 20 deep area for 1 RH/LH indoor golf setup. This gives you room for clubs, tables, chairs, computer, etc. Each golf simulator needs 1 dedicated outlet, typically on the right side. Carpet works best and you dont want to put the golf simulator up against any windows. The less light the better, especially overhead lights. We can help you with layout and setup.
Most golf simulator software is extremely easy to setup. Once the golfers and the game is setup, it pretty much runs itself. Each staff member should be familiar with the golf simulator software in case an issue arises. All golf simulators run off of a basic windows 7/8 computer.
Typically it take 1 golfer, 1 hour to play 18 holes. So a foursome will take 4 hours to play 18 holes on a golf simulator. Most golf simulator business charge 25-35/hour to play. So a foursome will generate 100-120 dollars for 18 holes. Most golf simulators come with 40-90 golf courses, including some of the most famous golf courses in the world. Protee Golf comes with over 100k courses You can also setup the driving range for customer who just want to practice. Get with your local pro and rent the golf simulator out for lessons.

All of our golf simulator components come with a 1 year warranty. All of our mats, screens, nets, panels are made right here in the US. Our 1 1/4 inch aluminum commercial frame is US made and is assembled with 1 allen wrench. We pre-cut, pre-measure and pre-drill all of our frames. The projector, lights, and sensors are attached directly to the frame and are pre-fabricated. Our impact screens are triple hemmed with webbing ( for added strength ) and are designed to take a real golf ball. We have eliminated grommets on all of our impact screens and use a pvc frame. We also use adjustable straps to adjust the tension of the screen.
