I have boiled it down to three key factors which can help you to determine what the best golf simulator is. I have an article on each of the key factors for choosing a golf simulator.
My company Sports Entertainment Specialists is directly involved with the sales of indoor golf simulators. When starting my company, I was very new to the industry and knew very little about the simulators. I didn’t understand all the functions and capabilities of the different golf simulators on the market. I knew it was an exciting, cutting edge industry with many different options and price ranges. Originally, I was looking to open an up scale sports bar, directly adjacent to a local (very busy) golf course. The thought was to have a nice restaurant/bar where the players could come have a bite to eat, a few drinks and play a round of golf on the simulators. Everything looked great except for the fact the commercial space I was looking at, did not have any type of kitchen at all. I was looking at about a $450,000.00 investment just to get the kitchen and bar into this location. I was unwilling to invest that amount of money, into an unproven business idea. So I stepped back and looked at what I really liked about the business plan. What I came up with was the golf simulators. The golf simulators were what made my idea exciting and unique.
So, I started contacting companies and visiting local establishments who already had a simulator, in order to get a better understanding of what I was dealing with. After several months of research on multiple companies and multiple products, I was ready to start my business. My goal was to help to bring to the market the exciting world of simulated gaming. I wanted to help new and existing business drive revenues and customer satisfaction through the roof, by implementing a golf simulator into their business. By offering the best simulators on the market, I set out to save my customers the months of research it took me to find the cream of the crop in the world of golf simulators.
I have approached sports bars, restaurants, hotels, golf courses, cruise lines, home owners and many others and have found this gigantic process can be simplified into three key factors. These factors are what I feel are the areas which need the most attention to detail, to determine which simulator is best for you or your business.
As my business had grown, I constantly run into someone who was just like I was. I talk to people all the time who ask “what should I be looking for in a golf simulator?” This question is the motivation for writing this article. Because I don’t directly work for any manufacturer, I am able to present a non bias point of view. Because I have gone through this process for my own business, I have reach a conclusion as to what is the best simulator for my needs and will happily sell those units, the key factors to look for are the same for all simulators on the market.
