Golf.One opens its doors in Southend

In a town known for its stunning coastline and vibrant community, Golf.One now stands out as a premier destination for golf enthusiasts. With a vision to revolutionise the golfing experience, Golf.One recently embarked on an exciting journey to install a state-of-the-art golf simulator centre, and GSS was the perfect company to facilitate the transformation from a disused bank into Golf.One.

Understanding the Vision

Golf.One had a clear vision: to create an immersive, high-tech golfing environment that could be enjoyed year-round, regardless of the weather. The goal was to blend cutting-edge technology with the traditional charm of golf, providing both beginners and seasoned players with an unparalleled experience.

From the initial meetings, it was evident that the team at Golf.One was committed to quality and innovation. They wanted a simulator that could offer realistic gameplay, advanced analytics, and a user-friendly interface. The challenge was to integrate these elements seamlessly into their existing space.

Designing the Perfect Solution

The first step was to assess the space and understand the specific requirements of Golf.One. Their indoor facility, while spacious, needed to be optimized to house the simulators without disrupting the flow of the venue. GSS proposed a comprehensive solution that included:

  • Trackman iO Launch Monitors: Providing ultra accurate data and unrivalled reliability.
  • High-Definition Projector and Screen: Ensuring crisp, clear visuals that replicate the look and feel of a real golf course.
  • Revolutionary Software & Custom PCs: Offering a variety of courses, game modes, and training programs to cater to all skill levels whilst running everything in max graphics settings.
  • Ergonomic Design: Creating a setup that is comfortable and accessible, allowing players to focus solely on their game.

Installation Process

The installation process began with careful planning and preparation. The GSS team started by securing the projectors and screen to custom timber framework, ensuring they were positioned perfectly for optimal viewing. The tracking system was then meticulously calibrated to guarantee precise shot detection and feedback.

One of the critical aspects of this project was integrating the simulator software with Golf.One’s precise PC requirements. This required close collaboration between GSS’s IT specialists and the Golf.One team to ensure a smooth and seamless user experience, with zero chance of failures.

Challenges and Triumphs

Every project has its challenges, and this one was no exception. The primary challenge was ensuring that the simulator’s technology did not overwhelm the welcoming, community-focused atmosphere of Golf.One. The GSS team worked diligently to blend the modern equipment with the venue’s aesthetic, incorporating sleek design elements and ensuring that the installation looked as good as it performed

Another challenge was selecting the perfect tracking system. Given the precision required, Trackman was the perfect choice with ultra-accurate data at the heart of Trackman iO’s DNA.


The installation of the golf simulator at Golf.One in Southend is more than just a technological upgrade to the local golf scene; it’s a testament to what can be achieved when vision, innovation, and expertise come together. GSS is proud to have played a part in enhancing the golfing experience for the Southend community and looks forward to seeing Golf.One continue to thrive as a premier destination for golfers of all ages and skill levels.

As a company, GSS remains committed to pushing the boundaries of what’s possible in golf simulation technology, ensuring that venues like Golf.One can offer the best possible experience to their patrons. Here’s to many more years of innovation and excellence in the world of golf!
