Golf Launchpad puts a simulator in your home

The Golf Launchpad now gives you an affordable way to put a golf simulator in your home. With a simple computer set-up or using Playstation 2, you and your family can enjoy the game all year round. Over 20,000 units have been sold since the product launch in 2005.

The system allows you to play the entire game from driver to putter. For smaller rooms you can use shorter irons to simulate woods and drivers. The tethered ball is on a ttethered tee so no net is required. The system is compatible with Windows, Mac and Playstation 2 as well as all EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour and Microsoft Links titles for over 800 courses.
There are two units for sales at Golf Town right now priced at $219CDN (PS2) and $269CDN (PC, MAC).

We haven’t had a chance to get our hands on one of these units for a test drive but we’d love to hear your comments if you own or have played on one.
