When you can’t make it out to the green, bring the green inside. More and more homeowners in Minnesota are including an at-home golf simulator in their basement remodeling plans. If you’re considering adding an at-home golf simulator, there’s one key question you need to answer first: how high of a ceiling do you need?

Recommended Ceiling Height for Indoor Golf Simulators

The recommended height will depend on a few factors – which we’ll go through in a moment. However, at minimum you’ll typically need a ceiling height of 10 feet to safely install an at-home golf simulator.

However, you may need to go higher or lower depending on a few factors.

Additional Considerations

  • Height of the golfer and your swing height. Your height will factor into the overall height needed. Likewise, you want to make sure there’s plenty of room for your swing.
  • Will other people use the simulator? If you plan to let other family members and friends use the simulator, you may want to choose a different person height and swing height as your baseline.
  • The current space. You’ll need to consider your current basement space as well, for planning purposes. Will you need to install walls to make a solo room? Are there ceiling lights currently in the way?
  • Don’t go TOO high. While it’s important to have ample room for the simulator and your swing, you also don’t want to build too high of a roof. It could interfere with the simulator’s ability to function properly.

Installing an At-Home Golf Simulator – Work with a Pro 

As you continue your research into installing an at-home golf simulator, you’ll quickly realize that this is an intensive process. Unless you’re really, really lucky, you likely won’t have a space in your home that’s tailor-made and ready for a simulator. Instead, you’ll need to remodel the space to be most effective.
