Considering a Crossbar for your Golf Simulator Design?

When building out a golf simulator setup, a few of the more complicated issues to figure out can be where and how to mount the electronics. The Pro Golf Simulator Enclosure from Carl’s Place was designed with this challenge in mind!

How To Mount Electronics On A Golf Simulator

Use a golf simulator enclosure with a sturdy frame that easily supports the addition of crucial electronics like golf simulator launch monitors, golf simulator projectors, and lights. Carl's Pro Enclosures use 2" EMT pipes that can hold the weight of overhead electronics.


Larger Pro Enclosures have crossbars at precise positions, helping users mount electronics to the ceiling pipes. At enclosure depths of 120.1" or deeper, crossbars are added by default to Carl's Pro Golf Enclosures. The crossbar will be set at half-depth, but with a minimum placement of 6.5' from the screen. This means that all enclosures shallower than 157" will have a crossbar at 6.5', and all enclosures 157" and more will have a crossbar at half depth.

Or you can customize the position of your crossbar.

For users interested in a mid-ceiling placement or for those that would like to mount multiple electronics, a custom crossbar can easily be added to the design. Our Customer Service Team can help you with customizations.

Why mount golf simulator electronics to the enclosure frame?

Overhead mounted golf simulator equipment is often preferred as it keeps equipment out of the way of a golf swing. Using a golf enclosure with a crossbar helps you mount projectors and launch monitors at the appropriate distance.

How To Mount A Launch Monitor On A Golf Simulator

Our Customer Service Team will be happy to walk you through your exact scenario and setup. Carl’s Place sells custom mounts for many ceiling-mounted launch monitors that attach directly to the enclosure frame or to a crossbar. 

There are key measurements to keep in mind with your projector and launch monitor placement.

  • Each launch monitor has specific requirements on where to place the device relative to the hitting area. See the launch monitor user guide for detailed information.
  • Crossbar must be at least 2′ from the screen and 2′ or more back from the leading edge
  • Crossbar can’t be more than 123” away from the screen

How To Mount A Projector On A Golf Simulator

Using a golf simulator projector mount that attaches directly to the crossbar or enclosure frame is an easy option. Keep in mind, your overhead launch monitor should always be mounted in the center of the enclosure (from left to right). Please refer to your projector specifications for the best mounting placement. 



Projectors with keystone correction are a Carl's Place favorite because they give the freedom to mount the projector off-center. It makes for easy projector setup to get an aligned image.

How You Can Mount Your Projector Off-Center

Use a projector with keystone correction. As an example, if your Pro Enclosure is 10’ deep, you could mount your EYE XO overhead launch monitor on the outer edge, nearest the golfer.  This would put the golfer at 13.5’ away from the screen, which is ideal since we recommend they be at a distance of 12’ to 15’ away.
