Newbie here interested in all things Indoor Golf

I've recently completed an extensive survey of golf center owners across the United States seeking to understand key business trends, strategies and drivers of profitability. I combined the survey data with information on things such as local golfers, weather and average daily traffic to gain a deeper understanding of what drives success for indoor golf centers.

I'd be interested in any and all insights folks have about owning a center, playing indoor golf and anything on indoor golf simulators.

Cheers

Personally I've never played indoor golf or used a simulator for more than testing a club at a retailer, unless you count Putt Putt. Places like Top Golf and themed driving ranges as well as indoor simulators have their place I guess, but in my opinion they're just that fancy driving ranges and video games. It's fun to hang wiith the guys and bang a few balls out across the giant dart board or video screen, over a few beers, I get it, but that's not really golf.

To get good at golf, you have to play golf, outdoors in all types of conditions and on all types of courses. You have to beat your ball out of the woods at times, you have to learn when to stop lookng and take the penalty for a drop, you have to avoid the water and sand and take your lumps, you have to practice in the enviroment that you want to be good in. You can't simulate that....

Playing golf indoors just doesn't sound appealing to me, but that's my opinon...

Oh and welcome to Golf Forum.

I hear you about it not being the same. I visited my in-laws over this summer and accidentally discovered indoor golf while we were out for lunch.

With my time to play becoming increasingly limited and courses around me getting much more expensive or closing, indoor golf seems to make so much sense. Its not exactly the same, but it is a lot of fun.

Also pretty nice in the winter when greens freeze over and the courses don't let you on them.

yep,I also tried indoor golf,but I think outdoor is the best. the joy it brings is the same but I think in outdoor is much happier for you can see a lot of scenery views.
