Good morning folks. Long time lurker, first time poster. I am in the middle of a project to get my golf sim up and running well.
I have a theatre room in my basement that will be perfect, once i figure out the right way to make it work. Im looking for the communities help to do that.
1. The couch. With the couch on the bottom level, its not possible to get anything more than a PW full swing. Nice thing is, its a dual recliner couch, which means the ONLY place its connected is 2 metal braces on the bottom of the couch. Its heavy enough that even if I cut those, when moved together, they wont move. So i plan to saw those in half, and simply push the left side against the wall, move the other one up a level, and voila. Thoughts?
2. The screen. So I do NOT plan on hitting real balls. I have some callaway foam balls that work well, but hitting them now just makes them fly all over heck. So I need some sort of a way to deaden them. My main thought was to mount a second screen (the one on the wall is 120" (room looks small but isnt)) on the ceiling, ahead of the cabinets and have it drop down (motorized) when i want to play golf. Is there a better easier, more effect way to do what im trying to do?
Since im only hitting foam balls, it wont take much, but it has to look good.
Would love to get your input on this project guys. I am dedicated to getting my handy back down to a 5 or so where i was in HS and College.
Any help you could offer or suggestions would be great.
