Masters Sunday is this week. Is your golf man cave up to par? If not, it’s time to kick it into high gear. Here are the essentials.
1. High Definition Golf Simulator
No golf man cave is complete without a High Definition Golf simulator. Sure it might cost you the same amount as a new car, but so what? By combining high-resolution imagery with geophysical and satellite data, the result is a high-definition 3D photo realistic reproduction that is so crystal clear and faithfully reproduced, you’ll swear that you’re standing on the actual golf course.
2. Putting Green
What about your short game? While the full simulator is nice, the quintessential golf man cave needs a place to practice your Texas wedge. The team at Pro Putt Systems have perfected the custom indoor putting green that would fit very nicely in your man cave.
3. Golf Memorabilia
No golf man cave is complete without a few photos on the wall. Whether it’s a photo of Jack in ’86, Phil’s ’04 leap or Tiger’s ’05 fist pump, you need some historic moments hanging in your cave. Check out the guys at Golf Links and buy some great stuff online today.
4. Golden Tee Arcade Game
Ok, maybe the simulator and putting green is a little out of your price range. Not to worry. Since 1989, Golden Tee Golf has been putting out the best golf arcade game year in and year out. Odds are you’ve already played some version of Golden Tee, whether out at a sports bar, your local golf club or at a video arcade. It’s a classic that keeps getting better.
5. A Bar
Does this need an explanation? Didn’t think so.
6. X-Box 1
While it’s great watching the pros at Augusta, it’s also fun to play as them. EA Sports recently tabbed Rory McIlroy as the face of its PGA golf game. Set to debut this June, “Rory McIlroy PGA Tour” will be a must have for any golf man cave.
7. Good Cable/Internet Connection
You were going to overlook this one, weren’t you? Think about it. With your golf simulator up and running and the Masters on three high-def TV sets, you cable/Wifi game better be strong. The last thing you want is to miss out on a putt on the 18th green to win the green jacket because you weren’t prepared.
