You would need the basic equipment noted above, and be registered as a licensed Operation 36 Program Location.
Although simulators give a really realistic experience, it is not the same as playing outdoors at a traditional green grass facility. From our experience a player will be between 1-5 strokes better indoors.
There is a new Round Type in the Op 36 Mobile App for Simulator Rounds coming soon. Each player will have a Simulator Level, and a Traditional Green-Grass Level. This allows students and coaches to log 9 Hole Rounds indoors or outdoors on a students profile to track their development overtime.
So will it count as a formal round to level up? Coaches will have the ability to Validate a Simulator round to Level up a player in the curriculum. This is player and facility dependent and is completely up to the coach.
