This is in a bedroom upstairs in my house.  This was originally my son's room (he is 8 now).  I had the simulator in the basement but it didn't work well due to ceiling height issues.  I moved my son

I think you paid to much for the mini fridge.....  

The projector is in a closet opposite the screen, I have it offset  to the right so my body (as a righty) does not block the throw.  Its not perfect, but it works fine.  I bought a cheap older NEC pro

From memory, so don't hold me to it.

 

Skytrak - used $1,000 (I traded a set of my friend's pxg irons on here for the skytrak, and paid my friend $1k) thank you Chrilly

Mat - $450?

Projector - $100

Screen - $175

Couch - $300

Mini Fridge $150

Swing radar $100

Bag caddy - $100?

TV - had it

Computer - had it

Misc (hardware for screen, picture frames etc) $150?

 

That puts me at $2,525 out of pocket, but i already had the computer and TV

The projector is in a closet opposite the screen, I have it offset  to the right so my body (as a righty) does not block the throw.  Its not perfect, but it works fine.  I bought a cheap older NEC projector that had horizontal lens shift.  I was more concerned with the picture being square than having HD quality picture.

This is the screen that I bought : https://www.ebay.com/itm/Golf-Simulator-Screen-96-x-108-SUPERTEX-REAL-BALLS-MOVIE-SCREEN-HD-IMAGE/154111199625?hash=item23e1be4989:g:gRMAAOSwD6xZssFC

 

I built a wire frame that sits a few inches away from the wall (see pictures).  I put PVC pipe into the sleeves of the screen then used some straps to secure it to the wire frame.  It would be better to use wood instead of PVC if you can, I have had friends hit some shanks off of the pvc and shattered it.

 

I also have a painters tarp hanging behind the screen for a little extra support.

Nice set up. How noisy when hitting driver? Just curious. Watching TXG on youtube, you hear a difference between driver and iron impact. I imagine family notices when you are using the driver.

My wife & daughter take occasional swings on my set up, so no way I could put a TV off to the side like yours.

Its not a high$$$ TV, it is probably 10 years old, and yes it has taken a few indirect hits, luckily so far the picture is still perfect. It is high up and at an angle that would be tough to hit the screen.

Your setup is very much cleaner than mine, but I'll have to post my 'garage' setup once I get time. I use several painters dropcloths for the actual screen on mine. Too cheap to spring for a real one I suppose.

Also, I see you have some PVC back behind the screen, I had some too but it doesn't take kindly to a direct hit from a high speed golfball(shatters!). Have you had any incidents regarding the PVC?

Love the functionality of the set up, I could spend hours in there, you should invite me some time 😉  (kidding but not really kidding). How accurate is your skytrack and swing radar? Would you say that you have experienced any issues with it or does it work fine? Also, the extra protection behind the screen looks great too, I imagine not even Sadlowski is getting through that! (Also gotta love the detail Ikea couch and Win 7 computer...maybe update the computer...?)

The PVC behind the screen holds up the painters tarp, it is pretty high so it hasn't taken a direct hit that has caused any damage.  As i mentioned earlier, the PVC in the sides of the screen(right side) has taken direct hit and shattered.  I would use wooden poles if i was starting over.

The skytrack is pretty accurate for ball data, and nothing else.  I would ignore any swing speed numbers (hence the swing radar).   Generally it has worked fine, occasionally the skytrack fails to read a shot, sometimes you just have to turn it off and on and it is fine.  This doesn't happen very often.  I would probably have to update the computer if I get a course simulator, but for practice mode it works just fine.

Just a note on this, there is a 2x4 attached to the bottom of the painters tarp for extra weight.

Very cool setup...would love to do something like that someday! How high are your ceilings? Do you have any padding on the walls for slices/shanks?

The room has a vaulted ceiling, it slopes from 9 ft at the back to about 15ft. in the front by the screen.   I have some padding on the wall under the TV, some "guests" have hit the wall before.
