Since playing 18 holes real-live golf costs about $400 in Korea, we decided to try out the very popular screen golf.
Screen golf is private rooms (much like karaoke) where you can play virtual golf for about $7.50/hr. The privacy is nice, especially when you are doing terribly and don't want strangers to see you cry.
There are real clubs and balls, but you hit them into a huge screen projecting a computer program simulating 9 holes of golf. There are lasers sensors above you that track your movements and --the best part---a mechanical robot arm that tees the balls for you!
We are headed to Tokyo, Japan tomorrow, so stay tuned for a post about that next week.
