Frequently Asked Questions

What is a golf simulator?
A golf simulator utilizes both ball-tracking hardware and visual software to allow a player to closely mimic a real life golf experience.

How long should I reserve a simulator bay?
If you are utilizing the golf simulator for training purposes, the amount of time you spend on the simulator is up to you. If you are interested in playing a round of golf, an 18-hole round of golf should take approximately an hour for 1 person to play. A 9-hole round of golf should take about an hour to an hour and a half for 2 players to play. 4 players should be able to complete 9 holes in around 2 and a half hours or 18 holes in 4 hours.

How many players can play in each simulator?
Similar to a round of golf, 4 players is the maximum number of players allowed to play per simulator bay. If your party is larger than 4 people, please reserve the necessary extra simulator bays.

Do I bring my own golf balls and equipment?
We provide golf balls and tees for you to use.  We recommend you bring a clean set of golf clubs. Forgot your clubs or don’t own golf clubs? We have you covered! For a small fee, we have rental sets available for you to use.

Can I bring my own food and beverages? Is there alcohol available for purchase?
Rain or Shine Golf has light snacks and beverages, including beer and wine, available for purchase.  Please do not eat or drink within the simulator bay or on or near the putting green. Catering for parties and private events is also available. No outside food or drinks are permitted.

Is there a minimum age to use the facility?
Children 14 years of age and older are allowed to use the facility without adult supervision. Children under the age of 14 can use our facility; however, we ask that they are accompanied by an adult at all times. Grandchildren visiting and they don’t have clubs? No worries! For a small fee, we have rental sets available for them to use.

Is there a dress code?
There is no formal dress code, however we do recommend a comfortable pair of athletic shoes (no spikes or ladies heeled shoes allowed) to maximize play-ability on the hitting turf.

Do you rent the whole facility or partial areas within the facility for events?
Yes. We rent the facility out for many different occasions including corporate functions, birthdays and other events. Please contact us for further information.
