Golf as a sport is addictive to only few players who do well in this sport. For others there is no other game more mind numbing than a round of golf. After all who likes to keep hitting the ball all around the course and the walk towards it to again hit the same? This is the reason why golf is still restricted to a limited population.
With the introduction of golf simulators like Bogolf the game has become much more interesting and people who would not even watch the game, have started playing it on a simulator since it is much more entertaining experience than playing on the real golf courses. It chucks out all the boring things from the real game and only leaves you with the fun stuff. You do not have to walk the course or search the ball after you hit the shot. On a simulator you just hit the ball and it will automatically be ready for you to take the next shot.
It has been observed that any sports when made into a game are liked by people who have no interest in that sport. Also when the sport is simulated there are many additional things such as custom courses which can really be fun to play. Along with that, it also provides the capability to play and compete with other players over a network. Losing a game is not as bad as losing real competition; hence most people are not scared to lose this game while playing on a sim. Another advantage is that you do not have to worry about the weather conditions outside. You play indoors and hence the winter or rainy season cannot play spoil sports to your game and you can play the game all year without any interference.
All the above stuff mentioned is for casual players. However for people who are serious about golfing, simulator is much more than just a game. It gives you the realistic experience of playing the real game with accuracy. You can not only practice the game but also improve the various aspects of your game with the help of advanced features provided by the simulators. Some of the most useful features are video swing analyzers, club path and face reading, club and ball fitting. Hence you can see that these devices are very versatile and can be used both for entertainment as well s training purposes.
