MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT GOLFCAVE & INDOOR GOLF
If you still have questions about GolfCave after reading our FAQ’s contact us and we’ll be happy to answer your questions for you.
What are your cleaning and safety protocols?
Maintaining a healthy and safe environment for all GolfCavers is always a top priority. The following measures are in place to provide the safest environment for all:
- Private Caves – only you/ your group are in the same Cave (room)
- Staggered tee times – to minimize customer interaction and make sure you get the most out of your session
- Frequent cleanings – Our rangers clean each Cave after every session
- Hand sanitizer in every Cave
Who is GolfCave for?
GolfCave is an indoor golf facility that is for anyone looking to learn, play, or improve their golf game – aka everyone!. Learn – Our private Caves take the intimidation factor out completely and allow you build confidence and focus on learning the game without worrying about people looking at you.

Do you charge per Cave or per person?
GolfCave charges per Cave, not per person. Check out the rates and book a tee time here.
How long does it take to play 18 holes?
It takes about 1 hour per player to finish a round of golf. We suggest booking an hour per person. For ex. we recommend a twosome book two hours and a foursome book four hours.
Can I just use the driving range?
Yes. We like to say it’s your Cave, your time – use it however you like! If you just want to work on your game we can set you up on the driving range and show you some great game improvement tools on TrackMan that you might like.
What courses can I play?
Choose from over 100+ world famous courses including more than 30 Tour venues. Pebble Beach is a customer favorite, but you can check out the full list of courses here. New courses are added monthly!
How accurate is the simulator?
The short answer is very. TrackMan is used by the very best in the industry for a reason. Our TrackMan simulators will provide you with instant and actionable feedback on club delivery, launch, ball flight, and landing. If you get a consistent practice routine going at GolfCave, we guarantee you will see results on the course.
Can I bring my own food and drinks?
Yes. We have a mini fridge in each Cave to keep your drinks nice and cold, and a countertop for food/snacks. Bring your own food and drinks or have something delivered to you while playing at GolfCave.
Is there a dress code?
We’re casual at GolfCave so golf attire is not required. We recommend athletic clothes, but your wardrobe is up to you!
Do I bring my own golf clubs and balls?
Golf Clubs – If you have your own set of clubs, bring them. If you don’t, we have a house set that you can borrow. GolfCave provides golf balls during your tee time, but you are welcome to bring your own as well. Our simulators don’t require specific golf balls – practice with the balls you use out on the course for more accurate practice sessions. *Just make sure the golf balls don’t have any marks on them (if you mark your balls with marker, they ruin the screen).
Do you have any tournaments or leagues?
GolfCave’s software can host whatever kind of tournaments or leagues you want to run. Let us know the format, names/teams, etc and we’ll set it up for you. We’ll email all participants, show you how to log your rounds, and make sure you are good to go! Customize your next tournament/ league at GolfCave.
How can I sign up for a membership?
A GolfCave membership is the best and most affordable way to play the Cave. You can sign up for a membership online, or at one of our locations.
How far in advance can I book a tee time?
Members can book 14 days in advance, non members can book 5 days in advance. Weekends fill up quickly during indoor golf season so get a membership and lock in those preferential tee times!
What is the cancellation policy?
You can cancel your tee time without charge up to 24 hours in advance. Less than 24 hours/ no shows will be charged in full for their tee time.
How many people can play at one time?
We usually suggest no more than 4 people per Cave (like a typical foursome outside). However, our simulators can accommodate up to 6 people per Cave. If you have more than 6 people, we suggest more than one Cave.
Are children allowed?
Yes! We just ask if you are under 18 that you be accompanied by an adult.
How do you putt?
The simulator has a few different putting options. As a default, our golf simulators are set to auto putt, which means once you get onto the green the system will putt out for you – 1-putt inside 10ft, 2-putt inside 65 ft, and 3 putt outside 65ft. If you want to putt by putting the proper pace and accuracy on a shot like you would outside, we can do that for you too.
