there are two different options for a golf simulator like you see in golf shops.
one "custom built" into your house will cost between 40 and 60 thousand. alternatively you can get one that fits into a room but is not built into the room. the one he got, from a company called dead solid golf is of this type. it was still alot, like 30-40 thousand, but less than a custom built one. it came with a projector, computer, big screen, and cage. The cage is just sitting in the middle of a big room.
one more thing, i know he couldnt get a few different ones because of the dimension requirements. some require 11' high ceilings.

They are pretty cool but I think the novelty wears off pretty quick for the price. I think you would need to have a lot of disposible income to justify getting one. JMO.

My specialty is golf simulators & swing analyzers. I have had years of experience and have done tonnes of research.
There are multiple systems out there with several different technologies. The three best systems (in each price category) are the Dancin' Dogg at $449 CDN (for basic portable use, no real simulation), the P3ProSwing at $1,095 CDN (my personal favorite as it is the best bang for the buck), and the GolfTek System at about $39,000 CDN (for luxury homes and major commercial installs) - oh yeah, there is also a GolfTek home practice center version that costs about $15,000 CDN.
The Dancin' Dogg features an turf covered infrared sensor pad with basic swing analytics and a course with overhead only view. It interfaces with Tiger Woods and is good for a gaming / basic system. A computer is required and you can add stance mats and nets/impact screens. You can use any club in your bag, but sole tape is required on the bottom of your woods & putter. The unit must be used indoors and in a light-controlled area. The turf is nice, but it needs to be replaced if used too much. You only need enough room to swing a club and you can take this anywhere.
The P3ProSwing features an extremely durable 70 durometer rubber (one grade above tire rubber) sensor pad with 65 infrared sensors with 12-point swing analytics, a driving range, putting green, full 18-hole golf course and a Tiger Woods interface. The system is 99.9% accurate, is a PGA Learning Center Technology Partner, and is backed by a 100% satisfaction guarantee. The basic system can be setup and taken down within minutes and is really easy to operate. The graphics are great and can really make you feel like you are on the course. This system can be used with your computer and your projector to give you the full simulation. You can add stance mats, nets/impact screens, games, video capture, launch angle, and more. You can use any club in your bag, but sole tape is required on the bottom of your woods & putter. The unit must be used indoors and in a light-controlled area. The surface of the pad looks fragile, but is incredibly durable - I have abused mine for over 2 years and it still looks like new. You only need enough room to swing a club and you can take this anywhere.
The GolfTek system is very similar to the About Golf and Full Swing Systems, just at a better price. GolfTek was the first company to develop golf simulators and they have perfected the technology. This system has multiple sensors and requires a large area along with overhead lights. The system is extremely accurate, has all the analytics you can imagine, and includes 12 courses based on real courses. The graphics are so real that you may never want to go out again, ok, maybe not that great, but you get the idea. There are over 50 courses in total available as well as extra features such as video capture. The analytics are intense and can be used for instruction, clubfitting or just self improvement. The requirements of the system make it only suitable for permanent installs, but if you are serious, there is no other system that compares to it.
I am the Canadian Reseller for all three of these systems and I have full stats on almost every feature of almost every system out there, so if you want to know more, just visit my website at www.par2pro.com, email or phone me.
My goal is to match the right system with each golfer... even if I don't sell my own systems
Take care & keep your eye on the ball!

You have got to be an addict to spend $60,000.

Ever since the late 1990's I had a dream to have my own Indoor golf facility. I did a lot of research and what I found out was these two things:
1) They all say they are the best and the most accurate
2) They all still are exactly the same as they were 10 years ago. No progress. Nothing new. Very inaccurate short game...
Last spring I got a call from X Golf simulator and went to see one in CA. I was sold immediately! This simulator, hands down, is the most exciting and realistic golf simulator in the world. Their XPlate changes the lie according to the lie on the golf course, they have totally automatic ball feed, you dont have to go collect the balls anymore and it's the most accurate golf simulator out there. Even the most difficult part, short game, is spot on.
Immediately I bought one to our driving range and it's been a riot! The near by golf simulator sports bar lost its customers and now you have to book your teetimes well in advance to get to play this bad boy. I'd need to buy another one soon...
Its practice mode and course selection (80 courses for free!) make this even better product.

They cost from $40k up
