X-Golf is known for providing state of the art golf simulators for residential and commercial purposes. They now also have a range of indoor golf venues across Australia with X-Golf Balcatta being the first golf simulator in Perth and even WA!

X-Golf Balcatta is home to 6 large golf simulators. They’re each equipped with a large screen and simulator software and the high-tech camera, infra-red and sensor systems that offer accuracy and realism.

The venue is fully licenced, and there are large bar tables behind each simulator so you can have a beer with mates while waiting for your turn! Did I mention they have giant golf-themed beer towers? X-Golf Balcatta would also be an excellent spot for events like bucks nights and office parties.

How Does the Golf Simulator Work?

The golf simulator takes a little getting used to, but after a bit of practice you’ll be swinging like a pro!

The friendly staff will get you set up on your simulator and explain how the system works. You tap a button on the floor which brings up a ball set on a tee. You can raise and lower the tee using the floor buttons or knock the ball off to hit off the ground.

Teeing off is just like real golf – you swing and hit the ball towards the screen, aiming for your target.

The ball then hits the screen and is automatically collected.

Swinging a golf club and hitting a ball full force while inside, surrounded by tech equipment, can feel a little daunting at first! I’m a complete novice at golf – both real and virtual. However, I found starting with the driving range to warm up and get used to the simulator helped before moving on to a round.

Indoor Driving Range

Starting with the indoor driving range is a good idea to get used to swinging inside and the equipment.

Unlike a traditional driving range, the driving range simulator gives players a massive range of data for each shot – a feature that is likely beneficial for serious golfers looking to improve their swing.

Golf Courses

When you’re ready to move on to a round of golf, you will not be disappointed in the range of courses X-Golf Balcatta has to offer! Here you can play some of the world’s top courses, such as Pebble Beach Golf Links and PGA National. You really will feel like a pro!

Just like a real game, you’ll feel the excitement of a good tee off and experience the frustration of landing in the rough or a bunker.

Gauging distance when putting in the simulator can be a little tricky. But so long as you’re within 2 metres of the hole you’re successful.

There are also some kid-friendly courses which include the Pirate Island and Moonlight courses.

For less serious golfers, X-Golf Balcatta also offers fun putt putt and mini-golf modes.
