If you're anything like me, you've always dreamed of playing the world's best golf courses. Dancin' Dogg Golf's OptiShot Infrared Golf Simulator is one way to do just that, in your own home, and without the cost of travel: courses like Torrey Pines, Bethpage Black, Palm Desert, and more. Ok, so what exactly is Dancin' Dogg Golf's OptiShot Infrared Golf Simulator? OptiShot is an affordable, accurate and portable home golf simulator, a plug-and-play golf game/simulators that connects with Windows computers. Nope, not like Wii. You use real clubs and balls, and up to four players per round can participate. Better yet, the simulator can improve your game; it accurately records your clubhead speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight, too. It can do much of what those very expensive launch monitors can do, but at a fraction of the cost. Hey, it's a lot of fun too, and how about all these neat features?

Live Feedback

OptiShot expertly breaks down your swing at impact & provides you with instant analysis.

True Simulation

The expanding library of golf courses not only look and feel like real courses, they play like them too.

Practice and Play

Hone your skill with repeated shots or enjoy full round of golf with up to four players.

Play in Your Own Home

Designed for the home and/or office, OptiShot is a fully immersive, super realistic, virtual golf experience. You use your own clubs to hit drives, approach shots and putts - all in the comfort of your own home.

  • Compact and portable setup
  • Entertainment for friends and family
  • Realistic and affordable
  • Ideal for all ages

If you hook your tee shot into the trees, you'll get to punch it out under a limb. Have to hit a wedge over a bunker to a tight pin? You'd better hit it the right distance and put enough spin on it. OptiShot is cutting edge science and virtual reality. Fun for the whole family and a great way to entertain friends. Dancin' Dogg Golf's proprietary technology and crystal-clear graphics make you feel like you're on a real course.

So what's the verdict? If you have a garage with enough room to take a full swing with your driver, you won't be disappointed. In home? You can chip and put to your heart's content. It really is that good. Obviously, it's better if it's hooked up to a desktop with a large screen rather than a laptop. But even with a laptop, you'll be impressed with the reality and the in-depth information/feedback you get. At $399 it's a great value.
