Golf USA of Limerick offers a vast array of virtual golf courses.
The GolfAchiever simulator steps out of reality's clubhouse and onto the virtual links via simulated driving ranges or 3-D replicas of famous courses, such as Pebble Beach, Spyglass, and Saint Andrews, all modeled down to the last digital divot.
Driving from the enclosure's tee or hitting fairway shots from the mat, golfers strike real balls into a projection screen as a laser tracks the movements and adjusts the on-screen action accordingly.
The authentic feel even extends to the green, where a grid aids putters in determining the slope and speed of the pixelated grass, and sand traps whisper deeply personal taunts.
For individuals, a nine-hole round typically takes about 45 minutes to complete, though the simulator can accommodate groups of up to four players for longer rounds.
