Creating a DIY Golf Simulator Enclosure Kit with an Impact Screen can be a rewarding project. Below is a step-by-step guide to help you build your own golf simulator enclosure kit:
- Impact Screen: High-quality, durable fabric that can withstand the impact of golf balls.
- Frame: PVC pipes or metal framing to build the enclosure structure.
- Netting: Strong netting to catch any stray balls.
- Bungee Cords/Clips: To secure the impact screen to the frame.
- Tools: Measuring tape, saw (for cutting frame material), wrenches (if using metal framing), and a ladder.
- Projector Mount: To mount the projector above the impact screen.
- Carpet/Turf: For the flooring to simulate the golf course feel.
1. Measure the Space:
- Measure the available space, considering the height, width, and depth to ensure enough room for swinging clubs.
2. Design the Frame:
- Design a frame that fits your space. The frame should be sturdy enough to support the impact screen and netting.
3. Build the Frame:
- Cut the PVC pipes or metal framing to the desired length and assemble them to form the enclosure frame.
- Secure the joints using appropriate connectors and fasteners.
4. Install the Impact Screen:
- Hang the impact screen inside the frame, ensuring it is taut to absorb the impact of the ball.
- Use bungee cords or clips to secure the screen to the frame.
- Ensure there is enough slack in the screen to absorb the impact without causing a rebound.
5. Attach the Netting:
- Install netting around the enclosure to catch any balls that miss the impact screen.
- Secure the netting to the frame using strong ties or fasteners.
6. Set Up the Projector:
- Mount the projector above the impact screen, ensuring it is centered and at the correct distance for clear projection.
- Calibrate the projector to align with the impact screen.
7. Install Flooring:
- Lay down carpet or artificial turf inside the enclosure to simulate the feel of a golf course.
- Secure the flooring to avoid any movement during play.
8. Test the Setup:
- Test the entire setup by hitting a few balls into the impact screen.
- Check the screen, netting, and frame for any issues and make necessary adjustments.
9. Final Adjustments:
- Make any final adjustments to the screen tension, netting, and projector alignment.
- Ensure all components are secure and functioning properly.

DIY Golf Simulator Enclosure Includes:
Your Choice of Impact Screen
Our golf simulator impact screen material comes in three versions: Standard, Preferred, or Premium. Each is engineered to create a bottomless edge that creates a picture-perfect floor-to-turf image with minimal bounceback.
Black Nylon Enclosure
The enclosure surrounds your simulator with a tough surface to shade the screen for your brightest image and catches any shots that miss or bounce off the screen. Because you don’t want to put a bunch of golf ball-sized holes in your wall.
The DIY Golf Simulator Enclosure Kit includes the corner fittings you need to connect your pipes. Pipes sold separately.
Ball Bungees and Zip Ties
We include all the fasteners you need to secure your enclosure and screen. You’ll get releasable zip ties, as well as 6″ and 9″ ball bungees to secure your screen to the frame. We even give you extra so you find the perfect balance of tension for your specific swing style. Depending on how close you’re hitting to the screen, ball speed, clubs used, and spin rates, you can adjust them all to find your sweet spot between tension and slack.
Pipe Framing Kit
Our Pipe Framing Kit is optional, but the pipes to build your frame are not. 1-inch EMT, which can be found at any local hardware store, is required to complete the assembly of your DIY enclosure (we’ll tell you exactly what you need). If you’d rather have us include the pipe for you, this add-on kit includes black, powder-coated EMT pipes pre-cut to the exact lengths required – no pipe cutting or hauling required!
Foam Insert Kit
Get an extra measure of safety and the peace of mind that errant shots will not contact the frame with memory foam cushions in the perfect profile and lengths to insert behind the screen flaps of the DIY Golf Simulator Enclosure.
Back Cover Kit and Back Cover Pipe Kit
Get rid of any light leakage, both internally and externally, to achieve the utmost superior projected image quality while providing your enclosure with a polished and refined appearance. Just like our enclosure, you can add the pipes for the back cover with the Back Cover Pipe Kit, or we’ll just tell you what size pipes you need to source and cut yourself.

Net Wall Extensions
Net wall extensions protect the walls of your enclosure without closing in your space. If errant balls are a concern, a set of golf hitting net extensions provides an additional barrier to keep your golf balls in the hitting area, not bouncing around your home. Simply attach onto the frame enclosure with hook and loop strips. A sandbag, at the bottom, holds it in place (fill not included). But, sometimes it’s best to have a little extra protection. For that, we offer a few options for upgrades. Foam inserts fit snugly to provide additional padding in the corners of the frame.
Carl’s Golf Simulator Turf by Big Moss
Gorgeous turf that doubles as a putting green, cut and hemmed to ensure a seamless pairing with your DIY Golf Enclosure Kit. Looking for more of a challenge? We’ve got you covered there, too. Use the included undulation pads to simulate any terrain variation your heart desires. You’ll be putting like Steve Stricker in no time.
