  • My Golf Simulator Setup end to end

    It took me close to 2 months to finish my golf simulator setup. I used this forum a lot for my research and would like to contribute now. Below is my setup detail and if anybody has any questions please do let me know.

    One thing I want to highlight is I went with Optoma GT1080HDR but had to return it because it did not have zoom and was very difficult to find the right spot especially with my enclosure which is 5 ft deep and for a 177" screen. This optoma model needs to be at 6.5 ft from the screen so the top part was cutting off with the 5 ft deep enclosure being close. When I switched to BenQ the setup was a breeze. I loved the BenQ

    I also liked the synlawn precision put matt and Fibrebuilt hitting mat a lot, both high quality. Carl's screen is very decent but had to reassemble it few times before I could get a flat and tight screen (Trick is to leave 4" of the rods from the inserts as opposed to pushing it all the way in).

    Lastly, I am still trying to make the Skytrak and TGC 2019 integration smooth. Given my setup is only a week old I am struggling with connecting SkyTrak in network mode and run TGC 2019, getting frequent disconnects and every time I turn the system on I need to go through too many steps. Not sure if it is my lack of knowledge of the products or something else.

    I use the same projector and agree. It couldn't be easier to set up with that zoom.

      I see that you have TGC 2019 and Skytrak. Any suggestions on how to connect network mode and use TGC from Laptop? Every time I turn the Skytrak on do I need to perform all the steps ( Change Skytrak from direct mode to Network mode then close the app, go to Laptop, connect box, start game)?
