    Hi Chris. 

    I got the ball dispenser at Dick's Sporting Goods.  When I first saw it, I thought it was a little over indulgent especially after buying all the stuff for my SIM including a new computer.  After about a week and and hitting a few hundred balls, the ball dispenser began to seem more like a "gots to have" instead of a "nice to have".  The dispenser comes with a hitting matt, but as you can see from the video, I ditched the mat and just use the dispenser.  The nice thing about it is that I can just pick it up and move it to where the balls collect at the base of my screen to re-fill it.  It holds about 35 balls.  I don't remember the exact cost but I think it was around $30... Well worth it.

     

    One tip about balls.  Keep them clean.  My balls pick up dye from my carpet that transfer to the screen.  I'ts not a big problem but just one to keep in mind.  When re-loading the dispenser I always check for green smudges on the balls and clean them if neccessary.

    Eric,

    thanks for the reply. I am on my way to Dick's! Funny as I purchased my sim, and net at Dick's and I would agree that the ball dispenser is a "gots to have"

     

    Thanks again for the reply Eric

    Hey Eric, your setup looks great!  Can you tell me the brand and model name for that golf ball dispenser?  I just went on to Dick's website and could not find it.  Maybe I can find it at Golfsmith or some other website.

    Eric,
    Where did you find the puzzle tiles?

    Puzzle pieces! That's a great idea, I was just trying to figure out what to use for that.

    What kind of projector are you using there?
