The Quindell Golf Simulator is described by European Tour Player Nick Dougherty as, “The most accurate golf simulator ever produced and the best teaching and training tool for indoor golf” while distributors, Indoor Golf City of Hampshire, say that the product is “at the cutting edge of virtual reality technology.”
Indoor Golf City was founded by a collaboration between Quindell Ltd and SDM Productions International Ltd. Quindell Ltd is a technology and leisure company, owning the IPR to several products including EPOS and this golf simulator, having invested several £millions ensuring the accuracy and the playing experience of this simulator is second to none.
As well as technology they also own a prestigious Golf & Country Club as well as restaurants and pubs all using the related technology products, whilst SDM Productions International Ltd are highly experienced in modeling business opportunities in a wide variety of fields.
The simulator offers players a selection of several playing options, including ball type, weather and course conditions, and faithful reproduction of the courses in play using high resolution 3D imagery. It can be used for serious competition, entertainment, teaching, practice and club fitting.
Instant video play back is available from multiple angles so that when the simulator is being used for teaching and practice the swing can be viewed in various slow motion modes with stop available on any frame. There is a built-in statistical analysis application that gives players the opportunity of studying a comprehensive range of data about their past performance.
When used for club fitting the Quindell Golf Simulator provides data for different clubs including trajectories, angles, carry, speed and overall distance.
Indoor Golf City is offering the simulator in the UK and Ireland with several different franchise options which vary in scope and coverage from the mobile golf business option (Tier 1), which is designed for the events and corporate entertainment market, and the academy training option, which is ideal for teaching professionals, right the way through to a ‘turnkey’ indoor golf centre (Tier 5) complete with at least six simulators and food and beverage provision.
Full details are available through the company’s website www.indoorgolfcity.com. In time this website will provide national branding for all franchised operations. It will list all sites and provide both booking services and online competitions.
“Ideally we are looking for existing golf club owners or leisure related businesses that can bolt our simulators onto their existing business, leveraging their existing cost base to provide additional direct revenue streams with the added potential to increase ancillary spending on food and beverage, equipment sales and so on” says Stuart Mundy, sales director of Indoorgolfcity.com
