Four Reasons To Choose A Golf Simulator Over The Driving Range
Golf simulators have made huge advances in recent years. Once it was only possible to experience a state-of-the-art golf simulator and now they are affordable and available at Stonham Barns Golf
But now that you have access to golf simulators, it’s worth asking whether they can match the real thing in terms of golfing practice. Here are four ways that a golf simulator is superior to a driving range.
1. Learn With Feedback
Using a driving range can be hugely valuable for practicing shots and working on the consistency of your swing. But if you are looking to improve the mechanics of your shot, just driving isn’t going to provide you with a lot of help. When you use a golf simulator you are given instant feedback on your shot – Golfzon simulators offer advice on how to improve your technique.
Products like the Golfzon provide you with swing analysis and stats that can help guide you to real advances in your game. Rather than simply repeating the same mistakes, you can correct your form and develop as a golfer.
2. Practice a range of skills
It’s great to go to the range to practice driving, but this does limit to working on this particular aspect of your game. This can lead many golfers to neglect putting in the work on the broad range of shots they need to become strong all-round players. But this isn’t a problem if you use a golf simulator.
Unlike the range, a golf simulator gives you the opportunity to practice almost any kind of shot from chips to fades. The highly accurate golf simulator technology makes it possible to train all of the different aspects of your game.
3. Train in all weathers
It is human nature that if the weather looks poor, we are less likely to want to visit a range and practice. If it starts to rain, no-one would blame you if you put off your session at the range for a nicer day. But the problem is that the next to time that you’re got a round scheduled and it’s a windy or randy day, you aren’t going to be used to playing in those conditions.
Weather can make a huge difference to your game, so it is important that you should train for these conditions. Golf simulators do a fantastic job of reproducing difficult weather, so you’ll be ready for it when you experience it on the court.
4. Work around your schedule
Naturally one of the drawbacks of practicing at the range is that you need to get there. Visiting a range requires committing a significant portion of time out of your day which can sometimes be inconvenient to arrange. With a Golfzon simulator you can practice any time of day, whenever it suits you. Just book the best slot for you and get swinging.
