I’ll have to try it my next trip there.

I used one at the HK airport. Got a full round in less than 2 hours. Was not there two months ago though, kind of bummed.

There’s one in Causeway Bay, but haven’t been there in a year or so.

When I visit for work, we end up playing screen golf at night, and real courses during the day on weekends.

The screen golf is much cheaper (about 1/10 of the cost of playing actual course) and takes only about 2 to 2-1/2 hours to complete 18 holes for a foursome; hence, it appeals to a broader audience.  It is a lot of fun in the evenings or during cold winters.  But I haven't gotten use to putting and chipping.

I still prefer the real thing, but when it is really cold or when it's dark out, it beats sitting in front of a TV doing nothing.

So how do you even putt with these?

The one I occasionally play has it set up so that a 10' is a give me.   Anyway...you putt across the sensors, it's sort of iffy..

Yeah, I'm not a big fan of putting across the sensors.  Back in the day, I used a simulator that had a physical hole in front of the screen, with lettered plots placed all over the carpeting between the hitting mat and the screen.  The screen would tell you where to putt from and you would manually type in your number of putts.

    • Depends on the swing. The club shaft is not straight at impact, even if you match hand position because the weight of the clubhead will cause the shaft to bend, sending the toe closer to the ground. That depends on your swing speed, and the golf shaft.  Its best just to get fitted for irons and use a lie board. 
    • Sounds like you guys had a great time, I loved reading the reviews. I'd love to hear about some of the best shots you guys hit out there, did anyone go super low compared to how they usually score?
    • Yeah. Eastern Michigan is one of the ones I'll admit not knowing. Pretty weak for someone that went to Bowling Green, but they were the Eagles by the time I got there.  Another one I never knew was the NBA Warriors. Before moving to California, the Philadelphia Warriors used a really hokey-looking Indian character. Obviously, they kept the name but changed the logo.     Really. The fact that the teams are pulling these nicknames is proof positive that people are offended by them. If it was still a real argument, Washington Football Team would have never given up that nickname.  The fact that they did is a case-closer.
    • That one really shouldn't be an issue - if you see it happening, you can tell the player to mark the ball and they have to mark the ball. Rule 15.3a:  
    • If your hands are high up at both address & impact, should your iron address position be toe up or flush with the ground?
