Residential Spaces

Make your own space with a Golfzon simulator in your basement. There’s nothing like golf for a party with your buddies and family. Up to 6 players can play a golf round together on Golfzon.

  • How did you know about the GOLFZON first? What made you choose the GOLFZON?
    The thing that sold on me GOLFZON was because the way that plate moves, the feet moves but the golf ball lays flat. That was the biggest thing nobody has flat lie with the golf ball and raise lie your feet. So that was the realistic.
  • What was your experience about the simulator? How do you feel about it?
    Everybody that comes over here says that distances are just what you are just normally hit. Somethings you can’t simulate like you are in really tall grass or get a tree right next to you but it’s a normal. But as far as when you swing a club, it feels you are hitting a real ball. That’s the biggest thing that people ask to me is “You really play with a real ball and real clubs?”
    -Yes, you are playing a real golf!
  • Is the GOLFZON installation a difficult process?
    It was not difficult at all. GOLFZON’s distributor of your region will handle and take care of you from start to finish right to the moment to just you hit your first ball. And they assist you with a design and a construction within your budgets.

When it finally came time for Jeff McIntryre of Houston, Texas to build a home golf simulator in his house he knew it wouldn’t just be for his benefit but his entire family’s. As a family man, Jeff wanted a space that offered the best technology to improve his game but also had the fun factor for his kids and growing extended family. He was able to check all of those boxes with a premium Golfzon indoor simulator.

HOW JEFF DECIDED TO PURCHASE A GOLFZON INDOOR GOLF SIMULATOR
  : WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO PURCHASE AN INDOOR GOLF SIMULATOR?

Jeff :  I’ve enjoyed golfing my entire life. We live in a golf course community and my wife loves golf and the family is picking it up as well. Our children and grandchildren lived nearby. We thought it would be an excellent opportunity to create a centerpiece for our whole family to gather.

  : WHAT WERE YOU LOOKING FOR IN A HOME GOLF SIMULATOR?

Jeff : Being an entrepreneur and owning my own businesses for 35 years (my wife even gives me a hard time for digging into the details) I had previously searched around for a home golf simulator a few years ago but never pulled the trigger. When we said this is the time and we were going to do this, I fell into my roots as an entrepreneur to do research in a very analytical way. I looked at a number of simulator companies, and probably two or three made the top of the list, but eventually I determined that nothing matched up with the Golfzon golf simulator.

  : HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT GOLFZON’S GOLF SIMULATOR?

Jeff : It started with my research. But being around the game of golf I’ve always been interested in getting better and have taken lessons over the years with other simulators. But this time my research was specific to our house plus the family environment. Golfzon had all the attributes that were important to me in making my final decision.

  : HAD YOU OWNED OR PLAYED ON INDOOR GOLF SIMULATORS PREVIOUSLY?

Jeff :  I’d taken lessons over the years with simulators or launch monitors both in a golf club or out on the driving range. The technology really lent itself to improving my golf game but as far as an at-home, family environment Golfzon was an easy decision.

  : DID YOU CONSIDER LOWER-BUDGET SIMULATORS? IF SO, WHY DID YOU ULTIMATELY CHOOSE GOLFZON?

Jeff : Yes, there were some at a lower price point but just as I do in my business, my goal is not to be the cheapest — I don’t buy on price, I buy on quality. I don’t mind spending a little more money, but I want to spend it one time and know that it’s going to last for a long time. The quality, history and the fact that Golfzon golf simulators are rated the number one simulator made an easy decision.

  : WAS THERE A DEFINING MOMENT, OR FEATURE(S) THAT SEALED THE DEAL FOR YOU IN CHOOSING GOLFZON?

Jeff :  I think the moving swing plate and the auto-tee sealed the deal for me. I said to myself that if I’m going to hit a bucket of balls, so to speak, I think I’d rather spend my time focusing on my swing and not retrieving and re-teeing up balls. Golfzon’s auto tee system really lets me focus on my game.

THE GOLFZON INDOOR SIMULATOR BUILD-OUT AND INSTALLATION PROCESS
  : WALK US THROUGH THE PROCESS FROM PURCHASE TO INSTALLATION.

Jeff :  Initially it was research and then reaching out to the Golfzon sales manager Jimmy McDonald who was very helpful, knowledgeable and responsive. We went to the original contractor who worked on our home and he agreed to help us with the Golfzon project. As far as I was concerned it was very simple. All I needed to know was the clearance space needed for the simulator – somewhere around 15-15.5 feet wide, 11 feet of height clearance and about 22 feet of clearance from the screen. So, from that point, we just engaged with the contractor. He did the work and Golfzon helped me fill any holes, so to speak.

  : HOW QUICK WAS INSTALLATION ABLE TO HAPPEN ONCE THE CONTRACTOR HAD EVERYTHING THEY NEEDED?

Jeff : Once we constructed the space, we reengaged with Golfzon and they gave me the schematic. Then we started building the infrastructure – I worked on some of the panels myself – and what was pretty cool is that it could be any way that you want. It was customizable from start to finish. From the time we built the platform until they came in and installed the final mechanisms and did the last minute details, it was about a three to four month process. Totally seamless.

  : HOW DID YOU COME UP WITH THE DESIGN FOR THE SPACE?

Jeff : Well I have to be honest, my wife’s embroidery craft room is adjacent to the Golfzon simulator, and she had a specific idea for how she wanted the rooms to flow together. So, I was a little tied up in that regard. Originally we were going to do solid panels but I like things a little bit outside-the-box so we ended up with the pattern that we have. But we could have done anything that we wanted, and it turned out exactly the way we liked it.

  : ANY SPECIAL CONSIDERATIONS IN ACCOMMODATING THE GOLFZON HOME GOLF SIMULATOR WITHIN YOUR HOUSE?

Jeff : Golfzon told me that there’s a minimum width and recommended the 11-foot ceiling height although I think I could go a little bit lower, if necessary. There also needed to be a little bit of pre-wiring for the internet connections coming in, and Golfzon also recommends a specific plug dedicated to the simulator. Other than that, there aren’t a lot of special requirements.

JEFF AND HIS FAMILY’S EXPERIENCE PLAYING ON A GOLFZON SIMULATOR
  : WHAT HAS YOUR EXPERIENCE BEEN LIKE WITH YOUR GOLFZON SIMULATOR?

Jeff : The experience with the Golfzon simulator has been phenomenal. My son-in-law is left-handed — the only one of the family. Every time he comes over I tease him and say, “I bet you’re glad I got the left-hand option too.” The kids love it. The wife loves it. She plays golf 2-3 times a week and she likes to grab a club in the morning before she heads over to the country club to play golf just to get warmed up.

  : WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ASPECTS OF THE SIMULATOR?

Jeff : The moveable swing plate, the ability to go to the driving range, being able to have an Arcade Mode to have fun interactions with the kids and the auto-tee which is what sealed the deal for me.

  : HOW DOES PLAYING ON A GOLFZON SIMULATOR COMPARE TO PLAYING OUTDOORS ON A GOLF COURSE?

Jeff : Golfzon is comparable to the golf course. I speak to my wife and my son-in-law about this a lot. Golfzon is pretty true to hitting off of the fairway as well as the iron shots you’d hit. The distance you’d get on a 9 iron or driver is pretty spot-on. The penalties you’d receive on a normal course from the rough are the same. Hitting from the Golfzon multi-surface mat feels almost the same as hitting out of real sand and the way the ball reacts is spot on. I know that to be the case because it really gives my wife a lot of trouble getting out of the sand!

  : COULD YOU TALK ABOUT THE ACCURACY OF PLAYING ON A GOLFZON SIMULATOR?

Jeff : The accuracy of the graphics are spot-on. When you’re teeing up looking at a distance…the elevation changes…the flight of the ball…the run-out, it’s all what you’d expect. Chipping onto a green with spin, it’s all there. As a golfer you know when you’ve hit a good shot and similarly, when you’ve hit a good shot on a Golfzon simulator, the camera is going to zero in on it and land somewhere near the hole. Golfzon is very accurate.

  : HOW HAS PLAYING ON A GOLFZON INDOOR SIMULATOR HELPED YOU IMPROVE YOUR GAME?

Jeff : My bunker game has gotten a little better, but I still avoid the sand if I can help it. As far as putting is concerned, the mat really provides good training with its light and dark stripes. It takes a little bit to become accustomed to. The moveable swing plate’s uneven lies – uphill, downhill, sidehill – give you a true feel like the course. Once you get used to it, you can zero-in on what’s causing problems and then practice on those lies to improve. The training games have certainly helped my golf game.

  : WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE COURSE TO PLAY ON YOUR GOLFZON HOME GOLF SIMULATOR?

Jeff : You’re looking at it behind me; it’s Pebble Beach. With so many phenomenal courses in the catalog we have some other favorites and from a competitive standpoint we also like to play 18 and then replay the same course to see if one person can beat the other. But the golf course that takes the cake is Pebble Beach.

  : WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART ABOUT BEING ABLE TO SHARE THE GOLFZON SIMULATOR WITH YOUR FAMILY?

Jeff : In the recent environment with COVID-19, there’s certainly a level of isolation that occurs and I’m sure most people would feel safer with the family. The Golfzon indoor simulator has been a good location for our family knowing that we can’t get out as much. It’s been a good safe space for us to enjoy our time together.

  : WHAT DOES YOUR FAMILY ENJOY MOST ABOUT PLAYING GOLF INSIDE?

Jeff : Well, we’re in Texas. When the temperature is up above 100 degrees, we have a pool right out there the kids love. But, when they get tired or it’s a bit too hot, they can come inside play games and hit a few golf shots on the Golfzon simulator in the air conditioned space…it doesn’t get any better in Texas.

Purchasing a golf simulator is a big decision. There are numerous considerations. How much do you want to invest in an indoor golf simulator? Do you want something as simple as an economical mat and net for hitting balls? Or do you want a luxury golf simulator experience that’s more immersive with a variety of options for practicing and playing like a Golfzon golf simulator? What golf simulator features are most important to you? Where does the golf simulator go in your home and what does that space look like? Do you want a golf man cave feel or a multi-use golf and entertainment space for the whole family?

To shed some light on this experience, we spoke with golfer and Golfzon customer Ken from Virginia who recently purchased an indoor golf simulator for his new home Here’s Ken’s Golfzon story.

  : WHY DID YOU START THINKING ABOUT BUYING A HOME GOLF SIMULATOR?

KEN :  When my wife and I were putting together the design of our new home, the architects had a space set out like a movie theater. I was trying to figure out how to make better use of that space. The golf club we belong to has a golf simulator and I thought about how much fun it would be to play in the winter or when the weather’s bad. As we started looking at the space, we realized it would be ideal for a luxury golf simulator.

  : HOW DID YOU CHOOSE A GOLFZON SIMULATOR?

KEN : I was looking for something that fit in the space and created a unique experience. I’m a technology person so I looked for the golf simulator that had the coolest technology. The digital display, moving swing plate, fact that the ball came up out of the floor and I didn’t have to reach down – those were by far very unique technical features which I found to be interesting. It was a fairly easy decision once I started comparing golf simulator technology.

  : WHAT WAS THE MAIN DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GOLFZON AND OTHER INDOOR GOLF SIMULATORS YOU CONSIDERED?

KEN : I looked at and played several home golf simulators. The main difference with Golfzon was the room in which the simulator sat in. A lot of other simulators are like a box and there’s not a lot of room to observe and participate other than the person swinging the club. Because we were building a new home, we spent a lot of time thinking about it and wanted something that was compatible and a fixture in the home. We also wanted to be able to enjoy it with family and friends. This golf simulator needed to be something that looked like it wasn’t just popped out of a box. The Golfzon simulator matched the high-end home with the experience I was looking for. It’s something I plan to have and use for many years.

  : WAS THERE A MOMENT WHEN IT CLICKED FOR YOU THAT GOLFZON WAS THE BEST GOLF SIMULATOR FOR YOU?

KEN : One downside to a lot of golf simulators is it’s really hard to get the putting the same as playing outside. With Golfzon, putting is much more accurate than other simulators. Like most people, I was skeptical. I was at the showroom and had a long putt. The Golfzon representatives were showing me on the screen the different colors representing elevation change and distance with the overlay grid. Looking at those three things, I realized it was very similar to how you read an actual putt. I thought about it and hit it. It was about 30-40 feet. It dropped right into the hole and I said – ‘Well, this has got to be it.’ If I can make a 30-foot putt in a golf simulator, that ought to be good for my golf game in some form.

  : ONCE YOU DECIDED TO PURCHASE A GOLFZON HOME SIMULATOR, WHAT WAS THE DESIGN AND CONSTRUCTION PROCESS LIKE?

KEN : My contractor is actually a good friend of mine who’s also a golf nut so he got very into the project. Between him, myself and the carpenters, we figured out how to lay out the floorplan. As a technologist, I was very interested in figuring out how the cables ran, where the computers went and all the networking. Then I had to figure out how to integrate the movie theater aspect of the system. Golfzon was great to work with – they provided plenty of advice and ideas. Overall, the results have been great. Everyone who’s been here to see and play in the Golfzon simulator believe the outcome was worth the effort.

  : WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE ASPECTS OF YOUR GOLFZON SIMULATOR?

KEN : I like the flexibility of it. When you’re in practice mode, there’s a putting practice area, a short game practice area (which I really enjoy) and then the classic driving range. You can easily toggle between the three. With other home golf simulators, you’re just hitting balls. With Golfzon, you can actually change the distances, the feel and the way the green lays out. The other thing I like is it’s a sophisticated, highly accurate system. It’s something the best golfers can get a lot out of – accuracy, detail and stats – but a 7-year-old child can come down here; hit balls and have just as much fun.

  : WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH SOME OF THE UNIQUE FEATURES OF THE GOLFZON SIMULATOR LIKE THE MOVING SWING PLATE, AUTO-TEE AND MULTIPLE HITTING SURFACES?

KEN : The act of hitting a ball into a screen is pretty common with a home indoor golf simulator. When I describe the Golfzon system and people see the system, the swing plate starts to move and the ball pops up – that really makes a difference because that’s very unique. Everyone says ‘wow, that makes the system.’

The auto-tee has a big impact on play. With other home simulators, when you hit two or three balls, you have to collect them afterwards. That can extend the round twice as long as necessary. With the Golfzon system, when you hit the ball off the tee, it hits the screen and goes down a reverse incline. The ball automatically comes back; goes under the swing plate and is re-teed. So, with Golfzon, you can play a lot more golf in a much shorter amount of time.

The multiple hitting surfaces is another unique feature of the Golfzon home simulator. Most indoor golf simulators have artificial turf and away you go. With Golfzon, when you miss the fairway, it actually makes you put the ball in the rough. Then you have to understand how the ball flight is going to be different and what club choice to make. That’s significant.

  : WHAT’S YOUR ADVICE FOR SOMEONE LOOKING TO BUY AN INDOOR GOLF SIMULATOR?

KEN : Don’t take shortcuts. Don’t go low-end. There are a lot of ways to get that experience. If you’re going to put something in your home that’s going to be there for a while and you really want to enjoy it, buy the best one. And for me that’s Golfzon.
