If your dad's about to be glued to the TV during the PGA Masters Tournament, Sam's Club has a Father's Day gift that he'll go nuts over. And while it's a littleeee (ok, a lot) more expensive than most Sam's buys, these TruGolf simulators are a pretty sweet set-up to have in your home. No more trekking out to a golf course to play a round-and you can have a beer on hand at all times.
There are three sizes varying in price from $13,000 to $20,000-I know, it's nuts, but stay with me. The smallest, the Vista 8 S-Series, has a 114" diagonal projection screen; the Vista 10 screen is 136" across, and the Vista 12 is 165" across.
Regardless of the size you choose, they all come decked out with plenty of high-tech features. Each one has a TruTrack2 system that uses optical sensors to measure users club path, club face angle, and club head speed at the point of impact. Data comes up after every shot, giving your parents/siblings/grandparents all the stats they need to feel like a pro.
As for the machine itself, the mat is built to model an actual golf mat, and allows users to swing down and through for the most realistic practice possible. It's also made to help players improve their ball striking by providing real-time feedback. Beyond that, the impact screen is held in place by a new tension system so the image stays crisp and clear throughout play.
Best of all, the systems come with 96 different course options, so users can play on some of the coolest courses in the world. It's a hefty price to pay, but if you have the means, it's pretty darn cool.
