Essentially you have 3 choices when it comes to golf simulator enclosure construction

1. Solid wall

Material costs are usually below $3,000 but will require many hours of construction

2. Frame cage with drape

Again, costs are around $3,000 but although less construction time is required, it's still a fair amount of work

3. Track drape enclosures

This is the easiest enclosure to build if you have a dedicated room and looks great too

Solid wall enclosures

Track drape enclosures

Also note that GSA Golf enclosures are suitable for all other golf simulator systems and launch monitors on the market today

i.e. Not just our tracking systems

Track drapes

If you need to pull the drapes back to free up the golf simulator area for other uses you can use drapes on a track

We can supply the drapes with track grommets and lower hems for this purpose if required

Heavy Track drape - fire retardent, sound and light absorbing - with grommets, hems and pockets

Customer review:

Just wanted to let you know I received the drapes and curtain tracks from the order below.

I have mounted them and they work GREAT! They far exceed my expectations and are fantastic.

They are long enough and heavy enough that I neither have to use weights at the bottom, nor any other reinforcement at the sides.

Nothing gets past them. I have cars parked adjacent to the curtains on both sides and there is no need to further protect the cars -

the curtains provide all the protection needed.

Canopy / Awning

Note that we don't supply ready made canopies but this is how you can build one


Suspended Canopy

If you don't have a ceiling suitable for mounting the canopy,

you can make up a frame like this out of 2 x 4" and 2 x 8" wood beams and use suspension cable systems secured to the back wall.

Drape tracks can be then mounted directly to the frame and the center beam can be used to mount the projector, lights and cameras.

The fabric covered canopy panels and ceiling drape can also be mounted to the frame

Hanging drape Awning/Canopy

A simple, inexpensive but effective awning is to hang 1 or 2 foot or so wide pocket heavy drape along the front

and optionally on the sides from the ceiling around the enclosure.

Use conduit pipe or drape rod clamped to the ceiling to suspend the drape

Awning pocket drape - black 20 oz napped both sides, hemmed on all sides

Cage frame enclosure fittings

GSA Golf cage tube frame kit

Consisting of multi way fittings for 1 inch tube

1 inch conduit tubing is available at most Home Depot and Lowes stores in 10 ft lenths for around $7.00 each.

Cut to size or extend tube lengths using the coupling. Use conduit clamps to secure to floor

-

You can make your enclosure any size you like by adding additional pipe lengths with the FC connectors or cutting down the standard 10ft pipe lengths to your requirements.

The above image shows frames for a 10 foot high, 10 foot deep and 15 foot wide enclosure

Standard enclosure depths are 5ft, 10ft and 12 ft.

Rear extensions can also be added for additional stability

Number of EMT 10ft tubes required:

for a 10'w 10'h 10'd enclosure without rear extension = 14

for a 10'w 10'h 10'd enclosure with rear extension = 19

for a 15'w 10'h 10'd enclosure without rear extension = 16

for a 15'w 10'h 10'd enclosure with rear extension = 24

Note that pipe/tubes will start to sag and bend under the tension of the screen and the weight of the drapes and projector if too long

To prevent this, use ceiling support mounts along the center beam.

These can also be made out of the FT fittings using steel pipe/tube cut to lengths with brackets

Frame fittings are $ 18 each.

Set of 16 standard enclosure frame fittings without rear extensions are

4 FC + 2 FL + 2 FT + 2 F3 + 8 F4 = $324

Set of additional 8 rear extension fittings are

2 FC + 2 F4 + 4 F3 + 2 FT = $180

Full set of all tube fittings

Price : $ 499.00

Note: Price of tubing, tube pipe insulation, and center beam wood not included as these items are too long and thus too expensive to ship and should be purchased locally at your Home Depot or Lowes hardware store

Total cost of tubing and wood beam is around $170

Note: The tube fittings kit is very heavy so shipping charges are $100

 

 

Call or Email us to purchase individual tube fittings


Double layer drapes

An alternative method of covering the exposed piping on the inside is to use two drape layers.

One layer for the outside and one for the inside.

Two 10ft drape rods secured to the top left and right pipe frames are used to support the inner drape

Two heavy duty (120lb tensile strength) black plastic ties are used to fasten the inside drape rods to the pipes at both ends

The inner drape is then simply hung through and over the two rods and fastened with cable ties to the bottom pipes

Once the inner drape is up and hanging you can add more ties - inserted through the drape - to the rod and remove the two outer ties

so that the drape can be drawn further forward to cover any exposed piping.

If using drapes rods is not preferred, then the inner wall drapes can be wrapped around the piping and held in place with black plastic ties.

First mount the left and right inner wall drapes - use clamps to temporarily hold the drape in place over the pipe frame - and tie the drape ends to the piping with plastic ties spaced at around a foot apart.

-

Use the supplied awl hole pin puncher to pierce a hole through both ends of the drape that is wrapped around the pipe

and thread the tie through the drape holes and around the lower and upper frame pipes.

The one piece outer wall and ceiling drape simply hangs over the entire enclosure frame and again is secured to the lower frame pipes with ties

Screen valance

The screen bungeee cords and tubing are covered with a screen valance made of a number of 12ft x 8 inch wide black fultron strips

These thick black Fulton lengths are ideally suited for screen valances and give the screen a professional finished look

Set of 4 black Fulton rolls (48 ft) for screen sizes up to 15 ft wide and 9ft high

$ 199.00

 

 

 

These screen valances can also be used to cover any exposed tubing if using a tube frame enclosure


Track drape enclosures

If you need to pull the drapes back to free up the golf simulator area for other uses you can use drapes on a track

We can supply the drapes with track grommets and lower hems for this purpose if required

Heavy Track drape with grommets and pockets

Set of two 5.25 ft wide, 9 to 10 ft high with 2x5ft tracks

Price : $ 699.00

 

Set of four track drapes 10.5 ft wide, 9 to 12ft high with 2 x 10ft tracks

Price : $ 1,199.00

 

 

 

Note that the track rails themselves are not available for export out of the US due to very high shipping costs.

These relatively inexpensive items should be available locally in your own country


 

Note that free hanging track drapes may require lead weights placed in the bottom hems to keep the drape taught


You can use the drape track to hold up the ceiling drape.

To do this, first mount the tracks loosely to the ceiling using just two screws at both ends.

Note that the drape tracks come in 5ft or smaller lengths so you will doing this in stages if your ceiling drape is 10ft or more deep.

Then - with the help of second person holding the weight of the drape - pass one end of the drape between the track and ceiling while allowing enough drape width to cover the two ends of the track.

Leave some overhang and screw the other track screws through the drape to the ceiling so that the drape is pinched between the track and ceiling.

Remove the two end screws and spread the drape over the track ends and again fasten with the screws.

Do the same for the other side ensuring the ceiling drape is straight and not too tight.

It's recommended to loosely hang a drape ceiling when using side track drapes so that the drape absorbs the energy of high lofted balls and don't hit a hard ceiling.

Ceiling drape - black 16 oz napped both sides, hemmed on all sides

Custom size up to 18ft x 10ft

Price : $ 229.00

 

Ceiling drape black angled profile

2 X 10ft lengths

Price : $ 199.00

 

Note that the track rails themselves are not available for export out of the US due to very high shipping costs.

These relatively inexpensive items should be available locally in your own country


Track drape enclosure screen mounting

As track drape enclosures don't have a full enclosure frame cage,

a method has to be devised to suspend and mount the screen without this frame

The screens can be mounted without an enclosure frame directly to the floor and ceiling using clamps, hooks and bungee cords

You can also mount the screens like this without a screen frame but note then that there will be no side tension on the screen so some waving might appear in the screen

Mounting screen using rear extension frame only

Alternatively, if you have enough room behind the screen, you can mount the screen on just a rear extension frame

The rear frame would probably have to be secured to the floor and rear wall with pipe clams

Set of 12 rear flat screen tube fittings

8 F3 + 2 FT + 2 F4 = $199

 

 

 


Curved screens

If you'd like a curved screen then you can use the standard frame pipe fittings with bendable carbon fiber rod

Quote from "www.draperinc.com"

Curved projection screens offer several key advantages over flat projection screens.

A curved screen helps offset pincushion distortion from a horizontal expansion lens, and also wraps the image around your periphery more than a flat screen for greater engagement with your projected image.

In addition, the curved image is subject to less ambient reflected light from your room, while your projector’s light is more accurately reflected by the perfectly smooth viewing surface for an ideal picture.

The amount of curvature is determined by the length of the "A rods" whereas the width of the screen is determined by the two "B rods"

"A rods" would normally be in the 3 ft range and "B rods" in the 7.5 ft range for a total width of 15 ft

Note that other golf simulator manufacturers would charge you an arm and leg for curved screens (upwards of $10,000 !)

Our price for a 15 ft wide, 9 or 10 ft high curved screen with double grommets, bungees and fixtures (excluding EMT tubing but including the A and B rods)

Price just $1,499

Floor scan area

The flooring area directly under the line scan camera, IR lamp and Hcam camera must be dark and non reflective.

It may be possible to treat the floor turf area so that it is non-reflective but most use the supplied black carpet strip (3ft * 5ft)

Note that treating the flooring in the scan area requires masking off the area and spray painting with a matt ( flat ) black spray.

In addition, you have to use visible halogen lamp lighting as the IR LED illuminator is too strong.

The above image shows what the spray painted scan area treated method looks like.

It's advantage is that there is no lip in the flooring.

When using the supplied non-reflective black carpet,

you can use 4 inch wide black felt tape to transition the carpet edges to the turf flooring

In case you need to purchase the scan area black non-reflective carpet and felt tape extra:

Price : $ 120.00

 

 

A recommended carpet is : Beaullieu of America - Type: Dayside Ebony, Product 6670-890 which is available at your local Home Depot store at around $4.00 a per ft 6ft wide.


Wood panel solid wall enclosure

GSA Golf solid wall DIY enclosures from $ 2,499

An alternative to the tube/pipe frame is to use 2"x4" construction lumber wood.

It's main advantages are

1. Stronger more rigid frame structure with solid padded walls

2. Cleaner look

3. Relatively inexpensive

Disadvantages:

More assembly time

Lumber for a 12-16 ft wide, 9-10 ft high, 12-16ft deep enclosure will cost aprox $100

Plywood panels aprox $200

Wall panel carpet approx $300

A recommended carpet is : Beaullieu of America - Type: Dayside Ebony, Product 6670-890 which is available at your local Home Depot store at around $4.00 a per ft 6ft wide.

Fire retardant ceiling drape $150

Optional sheet cork panel backing (for further sound and shock absorption) around $300

Optional awning panel $300

Total price then is aprox : $ 1000

Note that 2x4 lumber is available in lengths up to 16 ft so you can make your enclosure up to 16ft wide.

Also note that the area immediately behind the impact screen must be free for screen impact give so you can't use vertical support beams immediately behind the screen area.

For every 4ft of depth a new 4ft x Height frame section is required. The above image shows an 8ft deep enclosure using two frame sections per side.

If you only require a depth of 4ft then only one frame section is required. For a 16ft deep enclosure, 4 frame sections are required per side.

Other than the screen and bungee cords, all parts for this enclosure are available at any good hardware store (i.e. Home Depot or Lowes)

If don't want to build this yourself, you can usually find a good local carpenter to make it up for you.

Assembly and construction time shouldn't be more than 3 days (at the most) so even with an hourly rate of $50.00 it won't cost you an "arm and a leg" i.e. the cost won't be more than $1,200

Oh - and by the way - just in case you were wondering where that old English expression comes from, here's the answer:

Back in the day, before the invention of photography, you'd have to commission an artist to paint yourself or a loved one for a rendering.

Prices for such work would vary greatly depending on whether it was just a face portrait or a full figure rendering including arms and legs.

Adding "arms and legs" would thus be far more expensive.

So now you know.
