Golf is fun, but by nature it’s one of the only sports you can’t really carry around. That’s something the golf lovers in your life certainly know and wish wasn’t true. And even when there’s time, the price of joining a country club can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars a month.

If you have a golfer who wishes they could hit the course more often, but doesn’t have the time or spare cash, get them the TruGolf Mini golf simulator, on sale now for $299 (regularly $399).

Practice golf, anywhere

Most good golf games at the very least require a day in the sun, a massive field and the spare time to get there. The TruGolf Mini requires a place to stand and an iPhone, iPad or PC.

So, if you own an iPhone, you can hit 18 holes anytime. And TruGolf’s not like most virtual golf games.

TruGolf uses E6 Connect software that packs full virtual golf courses, super-advanced analytics, practice ranges and even more games. Just swing, and you’ll see your ball fly as if you were on the course yourself. Sensors gather data in real time.

The package even includes a weighted swing trainer that delivers an audible click when you hit the virtual ball. It feels like a real impact, but you can do it in your office.

Every swing goes through a detailed process to produce a real-life effect. And TruGolf measures four critical elements of a successful swing: club face angle, angle of attack, swing tempo and club path. Simply swing, strike and see the authentic arc your shot would produce on an actual golf course or range.

If you want to really test your skills before you hit the course again, you can set up skill-building challenges and exercises. TruGolf comes with 97 golf courses and mini games to give you plenty of authentic practice options. All you need is any iOS or iPadOS device (or a Windows computer) and you can simulate a real golf game. It’s perfect for golfers who can’t make it to the course, or who want to get even better before hitting the course again.
