Malaysia Indoor Golf Simulator at it’s best!
With players like Jordan Spieth and Tiger Woods endorsing the Full Swing Golf Simulator, it is hard to understand why more players are not leaning toward this technology to assist their games. However, many first time users may struggle with the concept of learning an outdoor game in the confines of an indoor environment. They don’t blame anyone. they will be the first to say that golf is a game that is best learnt on the course itself. Unfortunately, offering lessons on the 6th fairway with two groups waiting on the tee box behind is not exactly the best idea. They have decided to use the next best thing…
Of course, they would love to hit golf balls off pristine turf like they do on the professional tours to get their practice in, but few ranges offer this service. In fact 99% of driving ranges in KL are using hitting mats just like they do at [email protected]
However, what they do offer is a golf simulator with infrared beams tracking every shot that is hit into their high impact HD screens. The launch angle is measured against the speed of the golf ball. Along with the exact angle of deviation left or right of the target line, a ball flight is reproduced on the screen. The technology is accurate to 97%, and has proven itself to be good enough for Hank Haney to introduce the Full Swing Golf Simulator into his teaching academies.
Golf Simulator Brands
The game of golf is best played on the green. That is a given but there are times of the year when you are unable to do so like the raining season, scheduling problems and such. But such reasons should not hold you back and you should be able to enjoy your game anytime, even when it is indoors.
Play golf indoors?
One thing for sure, there is no reason to play golf indoors. Unless it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY! But when it becomes so, you should have all you need to let you get as close to the real thing as possible. That is where you need to invest in a simulator that will come with a lot of advantages. In countries like Malaysia, you might have to contend with issues like the haze which can disrupt your game. The idea is to keep playing even when you cannot go out so that you maintain consistency in your game. And this gets better, with a golf simulator, you get to enjoy the game from the comfort of your own office or living room. Here are some of the popular simulators you can consider.
SkyTrak Launch Monitor
This is perhaps one of the most popular names in golf simulators in 2019 and is expected to go on for the next few years. What makes SkyTrak so interesting is that it is very immersive and you will enjoy the game almost like the real thing. The high-definition simulation is very user-friendly where you can use your own clubs. This is like a real-life gaming simulation where you can play in live tournaments. Get your friends involved in more than 150,000 courses inspired from across the world. Besides that, you get to play with your friends where you can choose all types of configurations. The price is about RM9,000 for the complete set.
X Golf Simulator Pack
This simulator is known to be the best for small spaces. A standard package should not cost more than RM1,000 where it is attached to your golf clubs and you get to play in the many virtual courses taken from around the world. If you have always dreamed of playing in world-class courses like the Wade Hampton, this might be in your alley. In fact, the simulator has a junior option as well which means the kids can play along too. It, however, does not allow you to play with real golf balls as it does not require a net but connects perfectly fine with smartphones (both Android and Apple).
P3 Proswing Golf Analyzer
The P3 Proswing Golf Analyzer is a great device to have indoor if you want a lot of analysis. It is, after all, a real-time analyzer that will give you all the data you need in your game including the clubface angle, the swing tempo, your hit and carry distances and so much more. Browse through over 100 golf courses and driving ranges available in this system and play to your heart’s content.
From about RM1,500, you can get hold of the Rapsodo R-Motion. It is simple to install simulator that can be connected to your computer system and even your smartphone. The sensor can be attached to your own personal golf clubs but you need to have your own mat and net. Your swing is captured and then analyzed to let you know how good (or bad) it was. There is a driving range for practice as well as 15 virtual courses to choose from.
Optishot 2 Simulator
The Optishot 2 Simulator is one of the cheapest options if you are looking for a simulator without needing to pay too much. In fact, it costs only about RM1,500 (or even less) if you buy the bundle package. This set uses 16 infrared sensors that can track your technique and then analyze them. All you need to do is to connect it to your computer via the USB connector and then use your own club. It comes with 15 golf courses (and reputable ones), so you do have quite a lot of options actually. The only downside to this is that you need to use their foam balls to hit and real balls might not be your cup of tea. But then again, it is a budget set so it should do the trick for now.
Putt-a-Bout Par Three Putting Green
As the name implies, this is a great simulator to help you with putting. For an indoor device, this is quite a cheap and affordable option if you are looking for something along with a bracket of below RM500. Having said that, the Putt-a-Bout Par Three Putting Green does not require you to have a big space as you only need 9×3 feet for practice.
CItyGolf uses real golf balls. Why would this be something to consider? Well, it makes a big difference…
A driving range ball feels different to real balls because driving range balls are “built to last”. The average driving range ball is hit more times than a golf ball should really be hit, and over time the impact will eventually wear out the original shape, which will eventually give you some drastic misfires! Range balls also have the habit of being inconsistent in feel due to their compression. Some shots will feel “hard” even when you know you’ve hit it OK. If you’re not really feeling your shots the way you’ve really hit them, this is a poor reflection on the outcome of your swing.
They have the ability to move between the driving range and the golf course within a couple of seconds. This is an invaluable teaching tool, as students will be able to work on their swings on identical replicas of a choice of international golf courses. This is the most efficient way of getting a lesson on actually playing the game of golf under the watchful eye of a seasoned professional. Course management is one of the most overlooked aspects of the game of golf. Let them help.
Their professional uses advanced video analysis to help you really understand your golf swing. The key to swinging better is to know what you are looking for, and this is where their professionals will ease your mind on all of those burning questions that you have had about your golf swing. Once you have an understanding, it is easy to set some goals and start improving.

Oh, and Citygolf is situated in an air-conditioned lounge with a fully serviced bar serving anything from a Cafe Latte to an ice cold pint. It’s easy to make more swings in a cooler environment, so it stands to reason that you will get more bang for your buck in a one hour lesson.
