  • New Uneekor Simulator Build - Advice requested!

    Hello,
    Brand new to this forum and wanted to get some advice about options for a simulator build.

    Space: 15.5 Feet Wide x 16 Feet Long, 9 foot ceilings.
    Already have hitting mat being used with a net return pro.

    Here is what I was thinking. Also, where is the best place to get The Golf Club software that I could use with Uneekor? And what computer do I need? Am I missing anything?

    Thanks in advance for all the advice!
    Simulator Uneekor $8000
    Projector BenQTH617ST (amazon warehouse) $580
    Screen Carl's Enclosure 16:9 7.7x13x5 ft $1299
    Software The Golf Club
    Computer

    make sure graphics card is gtx 1060 6gb or better. I went with gtx1070 and all is great in wizards world.

    I would get screen from dbgolf and emt from home store order connectors and build my enclosure. I had a good time building mine from scratch.

      Agree with Wiz....you could save yourself about $1k by building your own enclosure.

      1)get screen from dbgolf (search this forum for buy screen direct from mill)
      2)get your emt fittings here. http://www.canopymart.com/canopy-fitting-selection.html
      3)buy emt at home depot or lowes (they will cut to your specs if you ask)

      and that's it.

      Other things you may need.


      1)I'm not sure of your projector, but make sure you can mount it so that it does not interfere with QED. The QED must be mounted 3.5 feet behind your hitting spot along the center line. Check with projector calculator that your projector can be mounted in the available space.
      2)Do not skimp on the graphics card....most important part for smooth game play.
      3)Buy TGC direct at https://golfsimulatorstore.com

        Uneekor - I would recommend the $7,000 package instead of the $8,000 package. All you'd be losing is a few golf courses, which quite honestly, is the weakest part of the Uneekor package. Take that $1,000 for The Golf Club 2019, which you can buy right here from Protee.

          I was going to say something similar to rgstech, but I would go a step further. Get the $6k Uneekor package. You won't need any of their courses (with TGC or JNPG). You will lose the short game practice which is pretty cool but you can scratch that itch on TGC as well. I also built my own enclosure, not too hard.

            I just finished a buildout anchored by a Carl’s enclosure. Kudos to you DIY’rs, it is certainly the most economical way to go. For those willing to part with the cash, I recommend the Carl’s enclosure for a couple of reasons. First, the 5 foot shroud with Velcro flaps gives it a nice finished look, and you can hide mattress topper padding behind the top rear bar flap to help with bounce back on the wedge shots,very clean looking. Second, I’m using mine for a 4k home theater as well, and the premium screen works well for video quality for the dual use application (although I don’t know whether the DIY screen is comparable for video quality or not, it may be).

            Good advice from gene on avoiding interference, I went through a lot of moving to get the sensor placed right while avoiding ceiling vents etc. one thing the uneekor guys told me is that you should have direct line of sight from the uneekor lenses to the line that is one meter in front of the tee area. I used a string stretched between those two points to make sure the LOS cleared my optoma 4k550ST short throw projector.

            All in all, very happy with the setup.
