Residential Golf Simulator

Much is being written about golf simulators. What in your estimation would be the biggest bang for your buck in putting together a simulation setup in your home/ or garage without breaking the bank. Prices have come down but are they at the point where you are ready to pull the trigger without being tossed out if your home?

For me it would be the ability to practice no matter the weather or day/night.   I personally just love hitting balls; during MGS most wanted testing season they often have to throw me out after I complete my session.   Short game work would be a main focus.

Prices are at the point where I am ready to pull the trigger,   the only problem is I don't have anyplace that I could setup the simulator.

I pulled the trigger about 10 years ago. I am handy and did all the work myself. Every year or two I would upgrade something. 
The benefits are 365 days a year golf. You can focus on the entire game one piece at a time. 

I started out small with an Optishot2 and a pop up net. Then built a cage with a painters tarp and a king size white sheet for the screen. Then picked up a net to attach to the cage. Still utilized the white sheet. I won a Mevo so I use that in conjunction with the Optishot2. (The Optishot gives you club data and the Mevo gives me ball data)

Then I got a projector which lasted 8 years. This year I replaced the projector and added an impact screen.

I enjoy playing different courses so I chose the system based on the amount of courses and one that doesn’t have yearly subscriptions. If I want to work on something I can select the driving range.

Saved a ton of money on eBay auctions. Alway picked the item that the bidding ended in the middle of the night or wee hours of the morning. Also saved with Amazon discount coupons. My $300 projector cost me $28.00 and it was brand new.
