Some people say golf is an art, others call it a sport. No matter how you define it, one thing is for sure: the more you practice, the better you’ll become. Unless you live in an area where you can play all year round, you may have to visit an indoor golf facility during the winter to keep your game sharp and continue improving. The good news is that a golf simulator impact screen can do the trick and help you get better at your favorite sport. If you want to avoid going to the practice facility and are lucky enough to have enough space at home or in your garage, here are some great ways to build your own simulator screen!
1. DIY golf simulator impact screen
This DIY project was built by one of the DIYers in tinktube’s community. It’s a great example of what you can build using steel tubes and connectors.
If you’re looking to build a similar project, make sure you have a ceiling that’s high enough to avoid accidents
If you don’t have that kind of space, you could also build an impact screen and set it up outside! Because of its simple design, it’s easy to make it into a retractable golf practice screen -especially if you build it with pipes and fittings!
2. Impact screen with golf practice cage
This is one of the most elaborate DIY golf practice cages with an impact screen we’ve seen built with tinktube!
This build is not for amateur DIYers. If you embark on this project, you have to plan very well: your cut list has to be irreproachable, and your choice of connectors too.
But once you get your ducks in a row, you’ll be fine. The proof is other DIYers have done it before you!

4. Indoor golf practice screen
Another example of an efficient structure to support an impact screen: this DIY golf simulator idea is just perfect.
It’s simple and relatively easy to build. All you have to make sure of is to use steel tubes that are quite rigid, to avoid any bend.
5. Golf simulator training screen
This impact screen idea is much simpler than the previous one, which means it’s easier to disassemble if you decide to make it retractable.
Building your own using tinktube’s pipes and fittings is also a low-cost alternative to any type of golf simulator package your could buy!
