1st sim set up


Recommended Posts

So I’ve been reading all of these post and am now totally confused. I want to set up a sim in my garage where I have my boat right now. (About to sell the boat) I will have to vault the ceiling to get enough height, but that’s not a problem. (Built houses for 25 years). I just want something to hit on a range for distance and maybe a few courses to play. I’m thinking mevo+. I just don’t know what I need as far as a projector, ipad or computer, and something to hit into. I have a net in my back yard I can use just need some sort of screen and mat. Not really interested in playing online it would just be me and my daughter or friends. Mostly just want something to work on my swing where I can actually see my ball flight and distance. Thanks

Ive been watching a bunch of YouTube videos looking at people’s set ups. Thinking I can do it for about 4000. Not sure yet 

I built a sim set up in my garage for less than $4000. 
 

Mevo+ - $2000

Impact Screen - $179

Impact Screen Frame (conduit and fittings) - $90

Moving Blankets for behind the impact screen - $40

Mat (built my own DIY Divot Action) - $75

Projector (Got this as a gift previously so I didn’t actually buy it) - $125

Projector Ceiling Mount - $12

 

Even with a $500 mat and better projector you could easily come in under $4000.

I would definitely go mevo plus if you have the space with these needs. I went with mevo plus and the weakness is the putting setup so I would just use the included programs on an ipad as they meet your needs.

I will also add that for my "impact screen" I used celtic cloth from Rose brand. It seems plenty strong and looks great as it is used for theatrical projection. $70 for 12 yards and the fabric is 128" wide. I just added grommets. 

 

As someone not familiar with this cloth, how would you rate the durability of it?

Well, as the OP of this, this is my first sim setup so I don't have a ton to compare it to but it is thick and having hit a couple hundred balls so far into it, it hasnt shown any signs of wear. I put grommets at 2' intervals all around and secured with bungee balls to pipe. Seems to be working very well.
