A virtual golf simulator is a system that allows you to play golf indoors in the comfort of your home. They consist of a video screen on which the course is displayed and a controller that records your golf swing and shows where the ball has traveled to on the course after you make your shot.
These systems allow players to play on simulated representations of golf courses around the world and many professional players use these systems for practice and to improve their game. There are various types of simulators available on the market that differ in their sophistication and cost. Some can capture extensive data on the ball, club swing and player posture to provide extremely accurate data about the speed and direction of the ball after it has been struck. By providing additional features to simulate the terrain and environmental factors these systems can provide a highly realistic golf-playing experience.
