Welcome to Nexus Golf

Basically… it’s an 18-hole golf course where they only have the approach shots. So, you:

  • 14 times per round (on average), you tee off in a little simulator building. The simulator shows the hole you’re playing.
  • The simulator tracks your tee shot and shows you where, relative to a few numbered mats, you play your approach shot. So it might say “you hit your tee shot five yards left and two yards short of mat #9”.
  • You play out the hole from there, with short game and putting.

Doing this lets you save all the land for the tee shots - both length-wise (up to about 300 yards or so) and laterally, because if nobody’s hitting a tee shot 275 yards, they can put the holes laterally closer together as people won’t spray shots as far sideways (i.e. few people are going to slice their 7I as much as they’ll slice their tee shot). I imagine the simulator software will probably “soften” some really horrendous shots hit very much sideways to keep you on “your hole.”

I love this! But one question: I went on the website and saw a few dozen mats, but only one green. Is that the only green on the property?

First, I don't think this is actually in place anywhere yet. Second, I think the general idea is that there are 18 greens, because you still play your approach shot to them. Plus any practice greens, etc.

So you're hitting your 14 tee shots one after the other on the simulator?

No…?

You hit a tee shot. The "simulator" for that hole is at the back edge of the landing area. The simulator says "continue playing the hole from two yards left of mat #11.

So you leave the building and walk to two yards left of mat #11. You hit to the green. You putt out. And then you go to Simulator #2, hit your tee shot on the second hole, and walk out to hit from three yards right of mat #8 that time, to the second green.

This assumes both are par fours, I guess.

The simulators eliminate 300 yards or so from the back tee to the landing area of the hole. Thus a 170-yard hole will play like a 470-yard hole - you just hit the tee shot from the simulator box.

A simulator on all par 4 and 5 holes.  You hit 14 of your 18 tee shots from inside 14 different simulator buildings located on the physical holes.  Hot off the press.....Nexus Hybrid Golf will be open for business in central CT this coming spring.  Exact location....can't say yet, but one of most beautiful courses in CT.  Best case open April 1, worst case June 1.  Starting with only 3 holes playing Hybrid Golf.....need to work bugs out first year and get people loving concept.  I look forward to you guys playing it....I can't wait myself.

    • 20 year break!  ... Let me guess, you got married? ...  You had kids? ... Or had a career change? ... Maybe did a little time in the pokey? 🤪 Anyway, welcome back to the game and welcome to the forum.  
    • Whoa! Whoa! Whoa!! Don't go away. Take a step back for a second. Listen, I know quite a few of the folks on this forum personally and they are all really good people, who love discussing golf. It seems you've become very upset because the title of your thread was changed. Think of it this way, when searching for this thread the rest of us need a way to recognize it. The moderator who changed it just tried to make it easier for the rest of us to find your thread.  Over the years I've had many thread titles changed. I've started other threads which have been merged with similar threads as well. This is a huge form. It's been around for 20 years. The moderators are just trying to keep thing tidy to help us all out.  Give us a chance. I think you'll find this really is a great place for golf talk. I'd suggest "The Numbers Thread", "The would you rather" thread, and the "General COVID-19" thread. Go in there and poke around. There's good stuff in there.  Remember a forum is a collection of personalities just like any forum that gets together in "real life". Some folks are better communicators than others. Some folks are wittier than others. (I'm looking at you @Double Mocha Man. I promise you if you hang around here you'll find stuff that will help your son's game. You'll find stuff that will challenge what you thought about some situations. You'll likely even make some friends. Besides if you go, who's going to teach me new words? I had to look up pedantic.... I had no idea what that meant. I was pretty sure it wasn't positive. But I went to Chicago Public Schools so my vocabulary isn't the strongest. 
    • I saw him hit his last home run in Milwaukee in 1976.  I had just graduated high school. A great talent.  RIP.
    • Sticking with the same stuff, left leg slider feel and maintaining the right ankle dorsiflexion. Hitting it well, taken a lot of the left miss out of play, misses recently have been pushes. Went to PING last week to get fit for the new woods, some changes from my last trip which I think is reflective of the swing trending in the right direction. Don't need to tweak the loft lower with the driver anymore and they recommend I hard-step my iron shafts. I like how stable the right foot is on the backswing and how the left foot is rolling to the outstep much less with the face-on.  
    • Day 18 - simple chips and pitches in the backyard along with full swings with the 5i and foam balls.  Focused on trail hand grip position.
