Curious to hear of any other TT members using golf simulators. Indoor golf has become a regular winter thing for me and some friends over the past couple seasons. It's definitely something I look forward to and really helps to scratch that golf itch.
I play a Monday night, 9 hole league with a buddy and we have a blast. It's a night out, some swings, appetizers and a couple beverages.
I also play once during the weekend with another group, either Saturday or Sunday morning. We usually have 8 guys and several games going within that group - a 2-man best ball, quota and skins are typical.
Interestingly, I find some people play the "video game" much better than they do the outside game. I have also seen the opposite. I personally am about 5 shots better inside than outside. How about you?

I play indoor golf as well during the winter, we play in a league and it's a lot of fun for me and my buddy. And i have to agree with you, I play a lot better inside versus outside. Only thing I take seriously is when hitting driver and irons but even then I question the results. Other thing I factor in is that I'm hitting off a smooth mat giving myself a sweet lie so there's no reason NOT to hit a decent shot.
So for indoor golf, I'm just there to keep loose and have a great time and to scratch that golf itch. And rarely do I take those results into considerations. Shooting a 73 at Kiawah? HA! Will never happen in real life. IMO, it's just video game golf.

Agree to all the above. Great chance to get loose and work on mechanics in effort for a better outdoor season. For those that have access to a Trackman, I highly recommend trying to do the Trackman combine.
