|20140155186||PENETRATION TYPE SCREEN FOR SCREEN GOLF - A penetration type screen for screen golf is provided. A golf ball struck by a golfer is allowed to penetrate through the screen such that the struck golf ball disappears from view, thereby increasing the pleasance of golfing environments and a flying image of the golf ball is allowed to be displayed in the simulation image as the struck golf ball disappears from view, thereby further improving the realism of virtual golf, and wherein screen elements which constitute the penetration type screen are prevented from being opened even when golf balls repeatedly pass between the screen elements, thereby improving product reliability. To accomplish this, the penetration type screen includes a plurality of screen elements, each being formed of spandex, the plurality of screen elements being arranged side by side such that the screen elements at least partially overlap each other and are each inclined at a specific angle.||06-05-2014|
