I am an avid golfer and I live in the northeast part of the country. New Jersey to be exact. This part of the country can be tough for an avid golfer such as myself. Sometimes the winters can be pretty rough here, thus shortening our golf season dramatically.
If you live farther north on the east coast or in the north central states then your golf season could be even shorter unlike states like Florida, Arizona or other parts west where you can play golf pretty much year round.
I thought I would take some time here to offer you some alternatives to help you keep yourself in great golf shape year round in the comfort of your own home, basement or heated garage.
Today, thanks to modern technology you can accomplish this with new high tech home indoor golf simulators, golf practice net packages and golf indoor putting greens.
SkyTrak Platinum golf Simulator
Dollar for dollar the SkyTrak home indoor golf simulator is probably one of the best golf simulators on the market today. The platinum package starts out with the SkyTrak launch monitor, the net return simulator series and the projector mount system.
Your SkyTrak simulator is also completely self-contained, meaning there is not need for drilling any holes making the setup of your simulator a breeze. Also, included in this package is a rugged and durable golf hitting mat that provides balance and forgiveness and realism.
I purchased my SkyTrak platinum golf simulator a little over a year ago and I am thrilled with it. The simulator is very durable and easy to set up. The simulated path seems to be very accurate with every one of my clubs.
I am very pleased with my purchase of my SkyTrak golf simulator. It was quite easy to set up and any questions I did have been answered promptly by their support team. I would highly recommend this simulator to any avid golfer.
