For Sale:
Complete Dead Solid Golf Simulator For Sale

Will Ship To: Nowhere -- local only

I'm guessing these don't pop up too often for sale, but I have a complete working Dead Solid Golf simulator for sale.  Here is the most important thing you need to know...it's 23' deep, 13' wide, and 10' high.  Please don't contact me until you've confirmed you have the room for it!

 

The second most important thing...you use REAL GOLF BALLS AND CLUBS with it.  Yes, you can hit your 400 yard drive swing attempt at it all you want.  The screen can take it.  And once it hits, it will simulate the rest of the ball flight, including spin.  Then it will show you your club head speed and angles so that you can work on your swing.  There is optional video swing analysis, but I do NOT have that.

 

Also, this is running on an older Mac OS9 system.  They have upgrades for that including a new PC, but you have to work with DSG on that part.  It does still use the same ball flight and club head hardware.

 

New, these are over $40,000.  Yes, that's with the newer software and such, but that's under $10k for the upgrade.  I'm asking $5000 for this unit and that's for local pickup only.  You can see much more info here:

PM me or post if you have further questions that I should have added to this.  It's located in Chapel Hill, NC.  And you can try before you buy as it's completely setup and working right now.

New over $40000?? It looks like its a swing path reader, i.e. Optishot or p3proswing.

 

For $40000 I better be getting a high end launch monitor.

You can get a good idea of what it is, albeit with earlier software, here:

You get swing information *and* ball information, and it will simulate a "real" round of golf, although the putting is obviously not very interesting.

 

I'm actually pretty sure new DSG simulators and the comparable ones are $50k, but got too lazy to confirm that and I know $40k is a safe number.

Have you got a point to make?  I'm sure the biggest part of the problem is few people have room for something like this.  The other problem is I need a buyer pretty close, most likely, because shipping is such a bear.  When you buy from DSG, part of the hefty price tag is in them driving it to your place and setting it up for you.  When I bought it I got it used and it wasn't set up.  But I figured it out just fine, and now have it marked well for re-assembly and can take good pictures as it comes down, so the next buyer will have it even easier...but I haven't taken it down yet because it works and a local-ish buyer can come try it.

Still available, and it's in Chapel Hill, NC (sorry, not used to forums that don't show your location by default).  I can break it down and do some kind of palleting so it can be shipped, but it'll cost a little extra, and shipping won't be cheap or easy since there are some VERY long poles when you are talking about shipping.  But we can build a wooden crate for it if you're willing to pay for that.

Sounds like a great deal, but I'm too far. I'm originally from Maryland, but my brother, who lives there, is too busy to come down.

Could you send some pictures of it when it was still in operation?

It's still in operation (fully setup), and the link in my first post above has pictures (you can click them for higher res versions).  Note that there's a big sun-spot bleeding through from a window that wasn't fully covered BEHIND the screen.  That's easily avoidable, we just had some cardboard fall that opened up the window.

 

I'll ship it, you'll just have to pay me something reasonable to build a wooden crate (or a couple) for it so that it makes it safely, since it'll have to go freight.  It'll be a few hundred to crate and a few hundred to ship.  I do have someone else mulling it over right now, too, who would also need it shipped.  I've successfully shipped collectible pinball machines all over the country and internationally, so I know how to do it...

 

I think it'll be two "normal" pallets that are going to be a taller crate each, and then it'll be at least one and maybe two very long skinny crates for the long poles and the roll of astro-turf.

 

You could fly in and see it working.  *shrug*

Do you still have this forsale
post #12 of 17

I am interested in this, and have a few questions about it...

 

1. How old is this unit?

2. Is there anything wrong with it?

3. Do you know what the differences are in the current software and the latest available?

4. I reviewed the brochure, but don't see any mention of optical detectors to track clubface angle and ball movement.  What sensors are included, and where are they located?

5. How accurate does this seem to be compared to Foresight for example?

6. Do you have any reasonable guesses how much it might cost to pack and ship it to Ohio?

Yes, it's still available.  On the questions:

 

1. Not completely sure. I bought it used about ten years ago, and I think it was about five years old then.

2. No, it works fine.

3. No, I don't. Since it's not as simple as a software upgrade (you get a new PC, too), I haven't done it.

4. It has optical detectors in the floor.  I have a complete spare set, too.

5. I have no idea, I've never used Foresight.

6. I don't.  A wild guess would be about $1,000 between wood crates and the shipping.  It's really not a terrible drive from Ohio to here, though. Rent a small box truck and come on down.  You'll be much happier if you take it down yourself so you'll have a better idea how it goes together anyway.
