What Is Indoor Golf Training Through a Golf Simulator?

Indoor golf training is a coaching technique that involves the use of a cutting-edge golf simulator set-up, such as the Trackman 4 launch monitor, to provide meaningful feedback on every swing that will help improve a golfer’s swing speed, accuracy, and other skills.

The golf simulator is a combination of unique high-tech devices and is designed to analyze real-world golf strokes.

And, you guessed it, it’s all indoors!

How Does The Golf Simulator Work?

Players can practice nearly all skills in a simulator as they can outdoors thanks to the official launch monitor of the PGA Tour: TrackMan 4.

While the golfer will still use the same clubs and balls they would on a regular course, the virtual simulator allows them to really hone in on various skills.

First, a player uses a real golf ball and tee, just like you would outside.

When the ball strikes the simulator, the TrackMan 4 Launch Monitor reads the club delivery and ball data using an advanced radar algorithm. The data is then shown through the software and projected onto a large screen in front of you.

Depending on the function selected, TrackMan Performance Studio will project not only a shot tracer to a target, but also give you data like:

  • Club head speed
  • Club path
  • Face angle,
  • Ball speed
  • Carry
  • & other measurable metrics to aid your development

In the shot analysis function, instant video replay of your motion is also projected right in front of you!

Pretty cool, right?

6 Game-Improving Golf Simulator Benefits (Indoor Golf Training Benefits)

Now that you know what indoor golf training is, it’s time to dive into the benefits of bringing your game inside.

Here are 6 score-enhancing reasons why you will fall in love with indoor golf training.

1. Save Time & Money With Advanced Golf Simulator Technology

While nothing can replace being out on the golf course in real-time, leveling up your golf game indoors through a golf simulator has its perks.

From renting a golf cart to purchasing range balls, we all know that golf expenses can add up.

However, when you practice with an indoor golf simulator, you’ll end up saving yourself valuable time and money.

Not only do you avoid rental fees, paying a caddy, or purchasing range balls, but an indoor facility allows you to practice with an unlimited amount of premium golf balls.

Plus, you’ll get the same experience of golfing on a real course without needing to walk or drive miles to each hole.

And the best part?

NO MORE WAITING FOR SLOW PLAYERS to finish their putts ahead of you. This is the magic of indoor golf training. It saves you from common slowdowns, money pits, and other golf course frustrations.

2. Avoid Unpredictable Weather & Canceled Tee Times & Lessons

We’ve all been there.

You’re out on the course, ready to tee off, when Mother Nature has other plans. You hear the dismal sound of the lightning alarm go off and you know it’s time to pack your bags and head in for an early lunch.

So frustrating!

Unexpected rain delays, hail storms, extreme heat waves, and even snow storms in some parts of the country are all annoying, yet necessary reasons to get off the course.

In fact, according to Fox Weather, golf is on lightning’s ‘deadly dozen’ list of activities that are most commonly threatened by lightning strikes.

With indoor golf, poor weather conditions and the threat of lightning become irrelevant. You can play at any time of the year, even during off-season and on stormy days, without your tee time getting canceled.

Play Late into the Evening

Guess what? The sun never sets when you’re training indoors!

As long as the doors are open and the lights are on, you can continue your lessons. Now you don’t have to worry about setting early tee times or scheduling lessons during the winter months when the sun sets sooner.

At popular membership-based indoor golf training facilities like InClubGolf, the doors stay open 18 hours a day, 120 hours per week.

3. Analyze Your Shots With Precise Golf Simulator Metrics

One of the best features of indoor golf training is the instant ability to review your performance, even after every swing. Through the use of cutting-edge technology, you can analyze feedback on everything including:

  • Swing path
  • Ball flight
  • Face angle
  • Speed
  • Spin

This will help you recognize and correct bad swing habits and improve your game.

Slicing the ball? Got a weak grip? Under-reading your putts? All arms, no body swing? The list of common golfing mistakes go on and on. Even for elite golfers, old habits sometimes creep in, causing them to score Bogies when they should be getting Birdies.

Here’s the good news: With an indoor golf training system on your side, you can refine your technique and improve your handicap before you head into a competition!

Since you’re in a controlled environment, you can take your time to really analyze and improve your strokes.

5. Get Professional One-On-One Coaching

Need a little extra help with your swing? Perhaps your putting could use some improvement or you want to learn how to chip better. Indoor golf training has got you covered!

One of the greatest benefits of indoor golfing is you can get MORE one-on-one time with your golf pro. Since you don’t have to worry about getting rained out or chasing down hard-to-find balls, your coach will be able to give you more pointers to enhance your score.

Plus, golf-related fitness coaching is readily available to teach you how to use the right form to avoid common golf injuries, such as back strains and rotator cuff problems.

6. Practice in a Low-Stress Environment

One of the worst things you can experience while playing outdoors are the people around you that don’t follow golf course etiquette.

From loud spectators who keep distracting you from your shot to the rowdy players behind you that hit while you’re still putting, nothing is worse for your game than the poor etiquette of others!

Obviously, we want to avoid this. Especially when we simply want to learn and practice.

As you’ve probably guessed by now, you can overcome all of these annoyances in the comfort of an indoor golf training facility.

Since no one will be rushing you from behind, you can really hone in on your practice and develop your skills. This makes the game great for newcomers and veterans alike, who come to learn and develop their game in a low stress environment.

It All Boils Down To This…

At the end of the day, we all still love playing on outdoor courses, especially when the weather is nice and we’re surrounded by our favorite golf buddies. Nothing beats the smell of fresh cut grass or hearing the ball drop into the hole after a perfect putt.

But, when it comes down to it, the amount of canceled tee times due to bad weather, the difficulty of trying to manually calculate and assess your metrics, and the astronomical cost of traveling from course to course (or even becoming a member of a club)… all just to practice and improve your game… pales in comparison to the ease of indoor golf training.

When it comes to golf training and coaching, you can’t beat indoor simulators! Ready to give it a try? Keep reading to learn how!
