Don’t Put a Hole-in-One: Get the Right Fabric for Golf Impact Screens

Golf is a favorite pastime for millions of people. With modern technology, enthusiasts can practice golf in any location, no matter the weather. Popping up at airports, shopping malls, sporting goods stores, and arcades, golf simulator screens make it possible for golfers to play indoors at any time.

As impact screens grow in popularity, so does the demand for high-quality fabric suited to display clear images and absorb impact. At Apex Mills, our fabric specialists (many of whom are golf devotees) partnered with leading companies in the simulator industry to engineer golf screen fabrics with the ideal cushioning for absorption, sound dampening, opacity, and brightness.

Golf Impact Screens – Perfect Edutainment

Golf impact screens have gained in popularity over the past 20 years. With continued advances in technology, indoor golf has become more lifelike with the added benefit of providing insight into your golfing strengths and weaknesses. Cameras and sensors enable golfers to receive an analysis of their swing along with the ball’s trajectory, distance, spin rate, and many other metrics. Overall, golf impact screens make it easy for anyone to learn how to golf or continue practicing on rainy days and throughout the cold winter months.

What Are Golf Impact Screens Made Of? 

Polyester mesh is a good fabric choice since it’s lightweight, durable, and affordable. Varying levels of screen quality can be achieved by adding layers of polyester mesh, making the screen sturdier and preventing light from bleeding through. Nylon mesh is also a good option offering a touch more strength and durability; however, it can be more expensive. Most importantly, the fabric must be durable and able to withstand a ball hitting it at 200+ mph without tearing.

There are several key factors to consider when choosing the right fabric for a golf impact screen:

  • Screen smoothness: The smoother a golf simulator screen is, the higher the clarity of the displayed image will be. Smoother screens also reduce the abrasion of golf balls.
  • Durability: Golf screens must be able to absorb impact from balls being hit at well over 100 mph with little to no bounce back and quick recovery. 
  • Noise dampening: High-quality impact screens will dampen the noise made from the impact of golf balls.
