Consulting Services

One of the hardest parts of every project is getting started and moving in the right direction. If you have never been involved in a golf simulator or studio project, there are a lot of things you need to know to make sure everything comes together as planned. This is where we can offer consulting services starting with a site visit with an initial design all the way to the complete build out.

Whether you are building a golf simulator in your basement or a 4-bay golf performance studio for your academy, we have the design capabilities to help. All designs are completely custom to fit your space and equipment needs.

Travel Trailer Golf Studios

Take your golf instruction or club fitting business anywhere. This design is the most versatile studio on the market today. You have so many options on where you can setup such as driving ranges, parking lots, outings, festivals, parties or anywhere you can get a trailer into. Can also be designed as an accessory structure for residential homes that have square footage restrictions for permitting.

  • Built to travel trailer specifications which makes studio very versatile
  • Can be pulled with a large pickup truck
  • Fold down door
  • Can hit into studio or out onto a driving range
  • Fully insulated
  • Optional generator
  • Optional signage
  • Possible leasing options

Modular Mobile Golf Studios

Originally designed for teaching professionals to setup golf studios on facilities that do not have year-round instruction capabilities. With the studio being mobile it gives the teaching professional the option to purchase the studio and take it with them if they decide to leave. We have found that this concept also works great for homeowners, bars, restaurants, sports complexes, or anyone who wants a golf simulator but does not have the space inside their home or building. They can set a modular golf studio on their property and if they were to ever sell their property, they have the option of moving the studio or making it part of the sale.

  • Single bay and double bay designs
  • Built with a trailer that is integrated into floor system
  • Ships as oversized load
  • Typical site setup is on piers
  • May be considered an accessory structure in some areas
  • Fully insulated
  • Equipped with PTAC unit for heating and cooling
  • Optional stacking door system to be able to hit outdoors
  • Equipped with the technology of your choice
  • Many interior and exterior finish options
  • Possible leasing options

Modular Permanent Structure Golf Studios

If you do not need the studio to be mobile, we can still use all the advantages of modular construction and build you a studio that is a permanent structure. When we take mobility out of the equation, we can build the studios much larger.

  • Single bay, double bay, and triple bay designs
  • Fast construction process
  • Typical setup is slab on grade with frost footings
  • Fully insulated
  • Heating & Cooling system installed by others on site
  • Optional stacking door system to be able to hit outdoors
  • Equipped with the technology of your choice
  • Many interior and exterior finish options

Panelized Golf Studios

Depending on your location our modular studios might not be a good fit because shipping becomes an issue. We then look at another type of system-built construction called panelized construction. The walls and roof are engineered into panels and put together on site to help with shipping.

  • Can be designed to as many hitting bays as needed
  • Insulated wall and roof panels with OSB covered with vinyl skin on both sides
  • Fast construction process
  • Typical setup is slab on grade with frost footings
  • Heating & Cooling system installed by others on site
  • Optional stacking door system to be able to hit outdoors
  • Equipped with the technology of your choice
  • Many interior and exterior finish options
  • Can be disassembled
