Virtual Golf is a Viable Small Business Idea For Entrepreneurs


  • Virtual Golf is a Viable Small Business Idea For Entrepreneurs

    For those who are looking for a great small business idea that requires relatively little capital to start, opening an indoor golf simulator business is a great way to go. Indoor golf simulators offer golf enthusiasts a great way to enjoy a round of golf with friends when weather conditions are poor as well as a way for those looking for practice during the offseason.

    Indoor golf simulators involve purchasing a system that allows golfers to hit golf balls against a pressure sensitive screen that shows high definition images of popular professional golf courses such as Pebble Beach, Pinehurst and others. These pressure sensitive screens provide feedback to the golfer, allowing them to see the results of their swing and make adjustments that can improve the results of their swings. Golfers can track ball trajectory, speed, spin and more. These facilities are extremely popular in northern regions of the country that experience long, harsh winters as well as in areas that don't have many traditional golf courses to practice on.

    Here's what you need to know to start an indoor golf simulator business.

    Rent or Purchase an Adequately Sized Facility

    One of the most important considerations for your virtual golf business is having the space you need to allow golfers to use their whole swing without the worry of striking another golfer or equipment. Ideally, you will find a warehouse or other large, open facility that has the space to allow you to install several golf simulators so that you can expand your business as it becomes necessary.

    Next, you'll need to purchase your golf simulator machine. Ideally, you will purchase a package that includes the module, the additional accessories that you need as well as professional installation and training on the device so that you understand fully how to use it. This is vital to the success of your business. If you don't know how to operate it, others won't either and no one will patronize your business. This will make up the bulk of your startup costs and can run you anywhere from $5,000 to $50,000. Try to purchase the best simulator you can afford. If you need direction on which simulator to purchase, consider joining a golf simulator forum or other online community to get guidance.


    There are a number of ways to market this type of business. The key to the success of a virtual golf business is word of mouth advertising. So, invite a few local golf pros in to your business to play a round or two and then allow them to pass the message forward. You can also allow local golf pros to provide lessons to golf enthusiasts in your facility for a reduced fee. In many cases, these students will often come back to continue practicing in your facility. And, you should definitely take out a few advertisements in local papers and even advertise online with a website.

    The virtual golf business is an easy business to get into and has the potential to be quite lucrative. Spend the time and money on a quality golf simulator and watch your business rise.

    The Golf Simulator Forum can help you find and use your new golf simulator. They are golf simulator enthusiasts who enjoy sharing their experience with others.
