Indoor Golf Tips
In this article, I’ll share my best indoor golf tips so you can learn why its beneficial to practice golf indoors and ways to setup practice so you benefit and improve at golf away from the course.
I’ve built myself a putting green and chipping area to take advantage of extra space in my basement and practice my golf game. I also use my garage for the golf simulator to practice on simulator golf courses to I can play courses like TPC Sawgrass and Augusta National.
Here’s my tips for indoor golf practice…
Tip #1: Find a Local Indoor Golf Practice Facility
The first place to start with, is looking around your city and seeing if you can find any local golf facilities that offer indoor practice centers.
These indoor golf facilities may offer simulator rentals you can rent for an hour or two and practice your golf swing. They might also offer indoor putting and chipping greens to work on short game too.
Most indoor golf practice memberships will run $50-$100 per month if you elect to join via a monthly membership subscription.
Tip #2: Setup a Practice Area in the Garage
The next option to consider for practicing golf indoors is to look at using your garage as a practice space.
If you pulled the cars out of the garage, you could setup a hitting net to hit balls into for practicing the golf swing. And if you have the space, you can create a golf simulator to play on.
Or you can skip hitting actual balls and use the space to make practice swings too. If you don’t feel safe hitting real golf balls, purchase rubber golf balls instead.
Any at home golf practice setup should include purchasing:
Tip #3: Basements with 9ft or Taller Ceilings
Does your basement have taller than normal ceilings? If so, you might be able to make full golf swings without worrying about hitting the ceiling with the golf club.
The basement can be a great place to turn into a man cave, setting up a golf practice facility inside your own home.
Just like with the garage setup, you can find space in the basement to setup a hitting net, chipping net, or putting mat to work on different areas of your golf swing and short game skills.
You can also create a golf simulator setup with a screen, a net, and a simulator device like the Mevo+
Tip #4: Fitness Routine for Golf
Another way to focus on golf indoors during winter months or bad weather seasons is to create a golf fitness routine.
Setup a workout space in your home with weights, medicine balls, kettlebells, workout benches, etc. so you can use a variety of fitness equipment to do a variety of golf specific fitness exercises.
