  • High Definition Golf’s high-resolution curved widescreen golf simulator
<< Back to Robb Report, January 2013

    Technology keeps bringing the home-recreation room closer to the golf course. High Definition Golf’s high-resolution curved widescreen golf simulators (www.hdgolf.com) feature a widescreen format and a curved screen design, which allows players to use their peripheral vision during play. The screen sizes range from 17.07 feet to 20.66 feet (measured diagonally), and the curved shape creates the sensation that the course—Pebble Beach, Pinehurst, Kiawah Island, or one of 17 other top tracks—is surrounding the player. The simulators, which are priced from $40,000, use advanced tracking technology to measure club position upon impact with the ball within a tenth of a degree.
