How much space does the simulator require?
This is a great question. Our inflatable enclosure is perfect for wedding and parties due to the quick set-up time. The enclosure is 3m high, 3.6m wide and 3.6m deep. So, you need to have an area that can accommodate the enclosure. Players will stand at the front of the enclosure so some additional space is required to ensure that those watching are at a safe distance behind the action. If want to discuss your venue, to check that the simulator would be suitable, please contact us to discuss your event. We will be happy to advise.
Can the simulator be used outdoors?
The simulator is primarily designed for inside use due to the electrical equipment and the potential for wind to move the enclosure. If you require it for an outside event, then it would need to be located within a marquee or other similar structure to protect the equipment from any adverse weather. Please contact us to discuss if it would be suitable for your event.
What is the cost to hire?
This all depends on a number of factors so each booking will receive a personalised quote. Factors such as location, time of hire, access will all affect the price. Please contact us to discuss your event so we can provide a quote.
What do front9events provide?
Well, basically everything you could need – almost! We will provide a purpose built inflatable enclosure. This will contain all the required equipment such as the golf mat, projector and screen, SkyTrak launch monitor, high spec gaming laptop, Jack Nicklaus Perfect Golf software, golf clubs and balls. All the venue will need to provide is electricity. We also need an internet connection but have mobile devices if the venue does not have wi-fi.
How long will it take to build?
Once all the equipment is within the venue, about 30 minutes. This is the time needed to inflate the enclosure, place the mats and artificial grass. The technological equipment takes a matter of minutes to set up. So, we can always erect the enclosure well before the event starts then return with the rest of the equipment when needed.
Can all guests participate?
Absolutely as long as they are healthy enough to play golf. Also, guest who have consumed an excessive amount of alcohol will not be permitted to participate both for their safety, and the safety of other guests.
My two year old loves hitting golf balls and even the most grumpy teenager enjoys the technology. It’s much better than having all the children on their phones or tablets as they are interacting with other guests (and, hopefully, developing a new interest) Elderly guests can get involved too – there are no lost balls or hours spent in the rough so even someone who has never hit a golf ball before can have fun. This is the beauty of a simulator – we can change the “game” to suit the participant. It could be a 50 yard nearest the pin challenge for young guests right up to a long drive competition for adults who want to impress! Or, we can just load a beautiful hole for your guests to enjoy. You tell is what would enhance your event, and we will gladly provide the golfing experience.
Where areas do you cover?
We are based in Wiltshire and will accept wedding/party bookings within 1 hour drive of SN15. If your event is further away, we will always do our best to help so please contact us to discuss.
Do we need to provide clubs?
As stated above, we provide all equipment but guest are welcome to use their own clubs if preferred. We have a full set of men’s right handed and left handed clubs. We also have some women’s and children’s clubs.
Contact us to discuss your own requirements for your special day and we will be happy to put together a package that just right for you.
