Two Affordable and Feature-rich Golf Simulators from TruGolf

The Vista 8 and Vista 8 PRO golf simulators are the ones in the TruGolf Vista Series with the best prices. In comparison to their more advanced counterparts, the Vista 8 Series is the smallest, with measurements of 9’W x 12’D x 8’H. Despite having a compact footprint, each TruGolf Vista unit needs an area of at least 15’W x 20’D x 10’H in dimensions. The Vista 8 model’s projection screen is 114 square inches and has a 4:3 diagonal aspect ratio. The dimensions of the shipping container needed for this simulator are 43″W x 51″L x 48″H, and its weight is 307 lbs.

The Vista 8 PRO version comes with a TruGolf Level 1 computer, HD 720p projector, premium fairway, 21″ monitor (touchscreen), and 1-year E6 Connect subscription (Basic edition) with 27 included golf courses. The computer has an Intel i3 with a 3.9GHz clock speed, is equipped with an Nvidia GPU and 8GB of RAM, and has the simulation software E6 Connect installed in it. The Vista 8 BASE model, however, does not come with a monitor, turf, or gaming PC.

Extras like a containment brim and side nets are included with the PRO version. The lightweight design structure requires no special equipment for assembly or disassembly, making it very portable.
