ProTee United B.V. announced today its ProTee Golf Simulator 2005, a state-of-the-art golf 3-D simulation system that connects to a PC.

The Golf Simulator features graphic views, synthetic grass and accurate light sensors to re-create the smallest details. Results are projected in real-time either onto a computer monitor or a large projection screen. The display shows a virtual driving range or a virtual 18-hole golf course with bunkers, trees and water obstacles.

You can built the complete system piecemeal. The basic system includes advanced simulation software as well as a high-quality sensor mat connectable to a high-speed computer. Additional modules offer extra sensors, extra golf courses, a hitting cage, projectors and more.

Use your own favorite clubs and choose to play soft or hard-cover balls or no ball at all. Any choice will be accommodated by the software set up.

Prices vary from $2,000 to $25,000.
