Other than the simulator, there is some score counter which also features digital assistance.

Golf Simulator and Digital Assistant

Golf Simulators is a set of technologically advanced machines like the golf launch monitor, that can sense, record, and analyze your swing details and show you results with help from simulator mats, sonic sound system, optical sensor system, radar, ball tracking system, and cameras. When it comes to showing results most outputs are displayed via projectors on the impact screen. But many manufacturers are also adapting to the new digital assistant concept. There are some golf simulators available that are capable of publishing results via Bluetooth instantly to a smartphone or audibly to a hands-free device.


Digital assistance is changing human life and making it easy to do multiple tasks at a time with ease. Golfers are being benefited from digital assistance as well.
