Most articles we see about golf simulators focus on game improvement, and the recent advances in technology. We’ve seen plenty of people asking why they should buy a golf simulator, and we’re kind of tired about hearing about stuff that is relevant for those with single digit handicaps, so we wanted to showcase some fun (and totally worthwhile) reasons that people love using a golf simulator.
In a recent online survey, respondents indicated just how their golf simulator has improved their life.
You Can Play Golf Anytime
With a golf simulator, you always have something to do! Golfers consistently tell us that they enjoy being able to play golf during the winter months, or escaping those 40 degree days on the course, and in the evenings when they just run out of time in the day!
"It has improved my life by giving me more access to play the game I love"
"All weather ability to play. No winter slump for my game"
"Great to be able to hit golf balls when the weather in Melbourne is dismal"
It’s Just As Social As Traditional Golf
Golf simulators are fun for all ages and all skill levels. Golf simulator owners love the fact that the simulator allows them to spend quality time with friends and family.
"Every couple of months I have few mates over for golf, and a BBQ - what more could be better?"
"It’s great for family bonding, we are connecting face to face”
"Since I have two kids I can play more at home and not have to worry about spending 4-6 hours at the course."
"Many friends I would only see once a month are suddenly coming by 2 or 3 times a week! "
"My dad is 80 years old and an avid golfer. I picked him up to take him golfing at a "real" course. He promptly told me he would rather go to my man cave and use the simulator. I was stunned. That made it worth every penny to spend quality time with my Dad"
Golf Can Be A Great Stress Reliever
Let's face it, our modern life is stressful, and we need to build in time to look after ourselves. Many golfers said that with their busy schedule, a golf simulator provides a great outlet to relieve some stress and unwind after work.
"I love going out in the garage and hitting balls after a stressful day at work!"
"The convenience of having my home golf simulator has made it easier to get range sessions in during the work week"
"More practice within less time. More time for family due to more efficient practice"
You Will Improve Your Golf Game
Sorry, but we can’t avoid it, we'll still include a section about how a golf simulator will lower your scores. Game improvement is a huge reason to get a home golf simulator, and for most, a better golf game translates to a better life!
"So much more feedback than I can get at the range. The data I get is insanely helpful"
"Has allowed me to work on swing drills and short game improvements"
“It’s given me so much more knowledge about my game, that has translated to lowering my handicap”
It's A Great Source of Exercise
Another common theme from golf simulator owners is that time in the simulator provides a great form of exercise. Rather than coming home from work and watching tv, you do something active and invigorating. A win for your game and your overall health!
"I've replaced my cardio workouts with 90 min of hitting balls"
“I’m now more energetic after work - I feel fitter and healthier”
“I’ve actually lost a bit of weight since I started playing indoor golf”
