Golf Simulator Advice & How to Create Your Own Golf Room

Which golf simulator can the golf enclosure work with?

They can be used with any golf simulator.

Which golf simulator can the golf enclosure work with?

There are thousands of projectors in the market place and they all do different jobs depending on the brightness of the room, size of picture required, quality of picture required and position of where the projector can go.

SkyTrak with Tru Golf E6

For example, this is a short throw projector position on the floor and covered up for protection 10 feet from the screen giving a 4:3 Ratio 13 1/3 feet 4M wide x 10 feet 3M high.

Projectors usually work on 3 different ratios 4:3 16:9 and 16:10 so, for example, a picture 13 1/2 feet wide x 10 feet high is a 4:3 ratio. Golf Projection screen that are smaller than 13 ½ feet wide therefore have a gap at the top and bottom as the width is filled on the 4:3 ratio but not the top.

Leather Cushioned golf simulator

16:9 Ratio projector 16 ½ feet wide x 10ft high with the projector suspended from the ceiling 20ft from the screen.

The most popular way to project is hanging from the ceiling and most projector manufactures provide a projector that can produce a 4:3 ration filling a 13 1/3 feet wide x 10 feet high screen from 13 ½ feet from the screen as pictured.

SkyTrak Golf Simulator

As you can see the projector is suspended from our golf simulator enclosure which is 13 ½ feet wide x 13 ½ feet deep and 10ft high.

Projectors with side horizontal keystone are a great idea if you don’t want a short throw projector on the floor.
