On the flip side of indoor golf (simulators), you can trust golf simulators to be very accurate. Many have a distance accuracy of approximately 95% or better. Some golf simulators will allow you to play with a real ball, on the other hand, lower-cost simulators will need a proprietary practice ball. This practice ball will not have similar results as an actual ball and golf hitting mat outdoors, so remember that.

CAN SHORT GAME OR PUTTING COURSES BE INDOORS?
Yes! The major constraint is the size of the space you want to install your short game or putting course indoors. With these, you will not have to be troubled by balls shooting into the ceiling because there will simply be soft strokes on the ball for short game improvement. Golf entertainment is turning into a large market, so if you own the indoor area to offer putting courses, it can be extremely useful to your property.
