While playing golf on an open golf course, you get the limitless height to hit the ball, and being an open space golf course, you don’t face any hurdles while swinging a golf club.
But what if you are playing golf in the garage by building the golf course simulator? You have restricted and limited space around you such as the width, length, and height of the room to swing the golf club.
According to the SI, there are around 30,000 golf simulators in the world, more than 2 million active members are playing golf using the golf simulator, and more than 56 million golf rounds are being played per year.
This report indicates how trending the golf simulator is, so you should take care of each module of the golf simulator while and before making it instead of making corrections after building.
Each module of the golf simulator is very important that is supposed to be explained in-depth, so in this article, we are going to explore the Ceiling Height For the Golf Simulator.
Highlighted: What Ceiling Height Is Required For Golf Simulator?
First of all, let me tell you that there is no such defined ceiling height for a golf simulation building, however, it depends upon your height as a golfer.
But as you know each aspect of the world has an average and standard value that is preferred for each person saying a comfort zone.
So, in the golf simulator, the minimum height of the ceiling of the golf simulator that you should keep is around 8.5 feet to 9 feet, if you are a longer golfer, it can reach up to 10 feet as well.
As per the suggestion, you can keep the ceiling height of the golf simulator around 10 feet which will provide you more space and comfort for swinging the golf club.
Golf Simulator 8-Foot Ceiling
As I mentioned earlier that the average height of a golf simulator should be 8.5 feet, now it’s time to analyze it logically would it be good if you keep the ceiling height of the golf simulator at 8.5 feet?
Now, let’s suppose, your height is 5’8″, and the average length of the golf club is around 2’8″, considering the length of your hands is around 8 – 12 inches.
When you swing the golf club with force, you can think about how much space you will require to occupy while swinging.
If the ceiling height of your golf simulator is 8.5 feet, then there are lots of chances to hit the golf club with the ceiling surface while swinging the golf club.
So, here if you are thinking to make your golf simulator’s ceiling height 8 feet, then you should not do that, it should be a minimum of 9.5 feet to 10 feet.
Golf Simulator Low Ceiling
Now, you might be thinking is it compulsory to have the ceiling height of the golf simulator of 9.5 feet?
The answer is: NO, and I know it can create too much confusion and paradox in your mind, but still, you should know that it’s the minimum required height, but if you are a very short golfer, then it’s enough for you.
Why do we consider the measurement of golf simulators in terms of dimensions such as height, width, and depth?
For comfort only, right?
We need to take care that the golf club should not hit any surface of the room or garage in which we are making the golf simulator.
So, here we need to understand that if your height is 7 feet, then a ceiling height of 10 feet is still not enough for you, and if your height is 5 feet, then 8 feet is also enough for you.
So, you can build the low ceiling height of your golf simulator if you are a shorter golf amateur.
Things to Consider for Your Garage Golf Setup
As you know now that each module of the golf simulator setup needs much more attention while building the golf simulator.
You can not follow it if you are not having a clear checklist written anywhere or in your mind, and it shouldn’t happen that after building the golf simulator completely, you have to modify it.
So, here I am mentioning some very important things to consider for your garage golf setup that you must not ignore.
- Launching Monitor
- Space for building the golf simulator
How Much Space Is Needed For A Golf Simulator?
As we have discussed separately the required space needed for building the golf simulator, but in actuality, combining all the aspects, how much space do you need to build an appropriate golf simulator?
Firstly, talking about the minimum required space for creating the golf simulator in your home or garage, it’s 10’W x 10’L x 8.5’H.
These are the minimum requirements that affect the other aspects such as the height of the golfer, arm size, hand length, golf club length, and the required space for building the golf simulator also varies with these factors as well.
In case, if you are a longer player, these dimensions may not be enough for you, and you need to set up a wider, longer, and higher setup, whereas, if you are a shorter golf amateur, this dimension can be the most comfortable for you.
In a nutshell, you should do both things, first determine the standard required size of space that you need to build a golf simulator, then match it with your actual requirement, and then make a certain decision.
Finally, we can come to the conclusion that the ceiling height for golf simulators varies from person to person according to their athletics, such as height, arm length, hand length, golf club length, etc…
In this case, you need to consider both aspects, the standard and minimum requirements, and your actual requirements, and by combining both, you should decide the ceiling height of the golf simulator which you are going to build inside your home or garage.
