Top 5 Golf Simulators in our Forum
I recently ran a survey in my forum of over 17,000 golf simulator enthusiasts to understand what golf simulator they owned and how they rate it. I asked them to share information on what they paid, what metrics it tracks, their satisfaction with its accuracy, if they’d buy it again, and what golf course software they use with the golf simulator.
I wanted to share a quick article of golf simulator statistics based on the buyer survey. Below is a summary of their responses starting with the most popular golf simulator in the survey, the SkyTrack Launch Monitor. I hope you find this informative.
SkyTrack Launch Monitor
This was the most popular simulator in the survey based on the number of responses. I suspect it has to do with the affordable price point and wide range of compatible golf course software options.
Garmin R10 Launch Monitor and Golf Simulator
The Garmin was the second most popular simulator in the survey based on the number of responses. It is a relatively new offering from a well known brand. Along with being from a well known brand, folks were excited as it tracks many more metrics than simulators that are much more expensive.

Flightscope Mevo Plus
Owners reports indicate that the Flightscope Mevo plus outperforms the less expensive simulators in every way and comes in at a much lower price point than many of the high end options. Owners reported it was easy to set up and worked well right out of the box.

Owners give it very high marks for accuracy. It is a residential golf simulator that is considered pro level and is often found in commercial settings.

Bushnell Launch Pro
Bushnell acquired Foresight Sports in the Summer of 2021, and the first big product to be released came in the form of the Bushnell Launch Pro launch monitor. It is a bit bigger and heavier than other portable models in the review and folks tend to think of it as professional grade. (See Our Full Review Here)
