For those looking for a budget-friendly option, the OptiShot 2 Golf In A Box Simulator Package is a top-selling product because of its affordable price. It is designed more for entertainment than serious skill improvement or training, but it has two modes: play and practice.
In-Play Mode, you can golf with up to 4 players on 15 different courses that include The Golf Club Scottsdale, Crooked Stick, and Torrey Pines. Matchplay, Best Ball, Skins, and Alternate Shot are some of the 8 different game types. Several customization options are available, like changing the camera view or measurements, altering the weather, and controlling the green and fairway speed.
In Practice Mode, any offered golf courses can turn into a practice range. You can place your ball anywhere and practice on the same spot or follow the ball on any of the courses. There are 6 target greens on the PinPoint Driving Range with precision rings for those looking to improve accuracy.
The package includes an optical swing pad that can accurately measure distance, swing plane, clubhead speed, tempo, face angle, and face contact point. All you need to do is unwrap the mat and hitting net, install the software on a Windows or Mac, and start golfing!
