Hey guys,

I did a quick search through the forums and didn't find anything about this product, but I just wanted to know if anybody has used this or owns one? From the youtube videos and description on their website, it seems like a great product. I really like the fact that it's portable and doesn't require any installation. I'd like to continue practicing in the winter and this seems like a good purchase.

Any thoughts?

Hello,

The TruGolf Newport Portable Golf Simulator is an outstanding golf simulator.  For the price, and footprint, it is UNBELIEVABLE.

Got one in my garage, and my wife and I, just got done playing a round at Firestone last night.  Both of our golf games will be untouchable come spring.  I highly recommend it.  A few of my friends and I chipped in and bought one, we rent it to other guys that did not chip in, and it's paying itself off.

Good Luck, anymore questions, just ask.

Most simulators take about 30-45 minutes for a round. It's not too tough to play quick when you have the exact distances to the pin, no walking and no waiting lol

I'm more of a fan of Full Swing's simulators...but they're also double the price of these.

A tad pricey! How about the "Opti Shot"?

The Opti Shot is not bad for the money.  I have one.  There are 2 things I don't like.

1) You must use a fluorescent light source.  Other lighting produces errors (even mixed lighting).

2) If you take a divot(correctly after the ball contact) it reduces your clubhead speed and your distance suffers.  It encourages you to hit it thin.

If you can live with those things, then it's pretty cool.

Sorry about the delay in responding.

I can finish a full 18 holes at a challenging course like Spanish Bay in just under an hour, and be only about 13 over par.

We charge the people that did not chip in on the simulator, $15-$20 for a round of golf, each person.

Loving the system.

We have been enjoying a feature on the system call By The Book, it awards points for fairway shots, GIR, and Two Putt or less, as well as birdies, then it penalizes for 3 putts or more, 3 putts it will reset the hole score (the points that you have accumulated for that hole), more than 3 putts it resets your entire accumulated score up to that point of play.  Really fun, and levels the playing field when playing with golfers of different ability.

**Just had to throw that little tidbit in about By The Book**

What do you think of the Golftek Pro 7 system?  I have been reading some reviews on other golf websites and, while it requires a lot of work on the user's part to build a cage, hitting surface, screen, projector, computer, etc., it seems like a very good swing analyzer with course playing also available (but not the primary purpose).  Any thoughts?

    • Played 27 Holes today made 7 birdies today finally birdied the 1st, just the second and third left to birdie.
    • I’ll pass that along to him and his people.  👍
    • Played my second round (ever) at the course that I think will be a home course for me next year (the complex has two 18s... I have played the other 18, but not in over a decade).  Birdied #13 to improve my away composite to five birdies and a total of -4 (I still have yet to par a hole nine in 2021 ... anywhere).  My two-round composite at that course is a 77.  By contrast, no birdies so far at my home course (well beyond two rounds played... and at least three scheduled in the next two weeks!), and three holes there I've yet to par.
    • Jesus, it’s not just white people who are offended. Just because he isn’t doesn’t mean many more native Americans are not. This line of logic is just idiotic. 
    • I talked to my buddy, 100% Navajo, about this thread.  His response was to shake his head, laugh and say “Leave it to the arrogant white man to tell us what we should be offended by…” Just thought I’d share.  I’m sure the arrogant white men here will continue to tell him he’s wrong though…  😂
