That’s why retailers and fellow golfers like ShopIndoorGolf of Texas came up with golf simulator packages that could bring golf courses indoors.
Going for packages instead of purchasing the accessories one by one would be a great time saver.

- GC2 Launch Monitor from Foresight Sports
- FSX 2020 Software from Foresight Sports
- SIG10 Golf Simulator Enclosure
- Side Barrier Netting
- Optoma 1080p Short Throw Projector and Projector Floor Mount Shield

What is Foresight Sports’ GC2 Launch Monitor?
Foresight Sport has been the leader in making professional launch monitors for the indoor golf game.
The GC series launch monitors are famous among golf professionals and studios for their accuracy and simplicity.
GC2 is the first in the line of the Foresight Sports GC series. GC2 is a most flexible launch monitor that can work indoors and outdoors with verifiable accuracy.
The GC2 is especially for collecting ball data such as ball speed, ball carry distance, sidespin, backspin, horizontal launch angles, and vertical launch angles.
The device can do more when it is connected to simulation, software called FSX, which is specially made for it. However, the specialty of this device is not its conjugation with the software, but its stereoscopic camera that can see each golf shot by 10,000 fps.
The GC2 has self-leveling accelerometers in it to adjust its positions; hence it doesn’t need any calibration. Most of the time, the device can be set within a minute out of the bag. The GC2 weighs less and is designed to fit inside a golf bag without taking much space.
The GC2 is a PC and mobile-friendly device that can connect with them through Bluetooth and USB. However, there is no need to connect the GC to an external device to see the shot details because it has an attached LCD screen. One can see all the required shot data directly on the LCD screen.
The GC2 works on a rechargeable battery that can run for eight hours straight, which makes it the longest battery backup for a launch monitor.
Not able to collect the club data is the only drawback of this GC2. One can still use this GC2 to take a look at their clubs by attaching a Head Measurement Technology device, which is also a camera-based monitoring device availed from Shop Indoor Golf.
The FSX Software
The FSX is the golf simulation software that was designed by Foresight Sports, especially for their GC series launch monitors. The FSX has great graphics and a user interface that could make the players feel they are on a real golf course.
The FSX is PC-friendly software on which one can play on around 110 different golf courses that are famous around the world, such as Linfield National and Broken Tree through in-app purchase. However, in the package, you get to play on only five courses without any in-app purchase.
The FSX is all-in-one software where one can play for fun, practice, and compete. FSX software comes with skill challenges like the longest drive challenge and closest to the pin contest where a player can show their skills and compete with others on the platform.
The FSX software has enhanced 3D driving ranges, which might feel so real. The software also helps in Club fitting. With this FSX, any player can keep track of his/her records, compare and analyze them with each other through charts and interactive graphics. This can all be done by just opening cloud storage with the FSX.
The SIG10 Golf Simulator Enclosure
If you are setting up an indoor golf studio, you need a screen to project your shots. But, you have the habit of mishitting. So you need an enclosure for your screen.
In this package, you will be getting a SIG10 golf simulator enclosure. SIG10 is a complete polyester screen enclosed with polyester sheets and backed by a strong and weightless powder-coated steel frame.
The SIG10 is made in the United States with premium quality raw materials. The screen can handle even the hardest of hardest hits while handling HD video projection. Along with the enclosure, the screening has side-barrier netting to prevent the ball from bouncing away from the hitting bay.
Moreover, the SIG10 enclosure is only 8’4″H x 10’10″W x 5′ D, hence it can fit within a medium-size room perfectly.
Optoma 1080pHD Short Throw Projector
Well, the GC2 can connect with your mobile devices. But the feel of a studio can only be attained through a projector, not on a small screen. Connect your mobile devices to this Optoma projector and feel the real course at home.
Optoma is truly an American brand with the best features on it. The Optoma EH412ST comes with 15000 hours lamp guarantee.
It has 4000 ANSI lumens and the right high contrast outcome, which is 50,000:1. It can project 4K HD videos and compatible with HDR too.
It operates quite at 26dB which makes it totally a lovable projector for your game.
Are you planning to affix this projector to the ceiling? But, you don’t have to when you can just lie this device to the floor and forgot.
The package includes a projector floor mount enclosure that is made up of steel. You can place this floor mount on the floor and forget its existence.
The package also includes a 15′ long HDMI cable to connect your mobile devices to the projector.
The SIGPRO 4′ x 10′ Golf Mat
SIGPRO is a mat that is perfect for any golfer who needs to save some dimes in their wallets while keeping the quality high as much as possible.
SIGPRO is 2.5″ thick and exclusively available only with Shop Indoor Golf. The SIGPRO is densely packed with artificial grass on the top and a tough foam base at the bottom. Sometimes, golfers complain that their mat is hurting their joints, which truly because of the less turf density.
This SIGPRO has dense turf which offers the feel of swinging outta real fairway by hitting down and through.
The SIGPRO is economically wise too. If the hitting area goes worn out, you can swap the worn-out area for the new one instead of investing in a whole new mat.
This SIGPRO has enough grip and grabs for a player to stand on. The whole mat weighs only 31 lbs, which makes it easy to store.
The Landing Pad Truf
The landing pad turf is the last accessory that is required to complete your SIG10 Golf Simulator Package. The landing pad turf made by ShopIndoorGolf is an important accessory to guard both the ball and the stuff in your indoor from the ball. This thing, lies between the player and the screen, offers the ball a soft landing and confines it within the enclosure.
