Decking Out Your Golf Simulator Man Cave
This article will give you all the information you need to build a golf simulator man cave in your house.
While you will need a golf simulator, there are many other items you'll need for your golf simulator man cave. We'll start with a few of the components you'll need to customize your man cave, whether it is in your basement, garage or a shed.
Your golf simulator hitting bay can be a ready-made kit or something you DIY yourself to get the ultimate setup for your golf simulator man cave. Before this becomes your favorite room in your house, your next step will be to design, purchase, and install all the features and accessories you need to go along with the simulator technology.
I'll start by talking about protection for the hitting bay and the residential golf simulator room. You will likely want the padding to protect your room from golf balls hitting softer items. You'll want ceiling protection for your golf simulator, along with side panels / wall padding and even padding for the hitting bay itself. An alternative to the wall padding can be either heavy curtains or a hitting net to protect the walls and prevent golf ball ricochets.
With the protective frame planned, it is time to start looking at the items that will make the golf simulator man cave start to function as a golf simulator for home use. Starting from the ground up you'll need a golf hitting mat and you'll likely want golf simulator turf for a landing pad for golf balls. The golf simulator turf may also double as a putting green for the golf simulator. You will want a good quality screen to hit golf balls into and a good projector to project images onto the screen. You'll also need somewhere to put your computer and an easy to use golf simulator control box. Last but not least, is the heart of your man cave, the golf simulator and the golf simulator software.
You may also want to consider ways to heat or cool your man cave, particularly if you are building it out in your garage, basement, or in a shed.
