When your reputation is built on five-star excellence and providing only the very best to customers, it’s essential that ethos pervades every area of your business.

That’s why award-winning Hertfordshire resort The Grove has chosen Foresight Sports technology to provide golf-ball launch data with which its golf professionals can coach and fit.

Now widely accepted as the golf industry’s most accurate technology, Foresight’s Game Changer 2 (GC2) directly measures all essential ball data at launch using ultra-high-speed cameras, to provide the most-trusted and precise data in the industry.

It has become an essential tool for all club professionals as golfers demand the data they see the professionals receiving, whether for coaching or for club-fitting. And it was an increasing demand that was not lost on Andy McMahon, golf operations manager at The Grove.

He explained: “As a five-star golf resort it is vital we provide a range of services to further enhance the award-winning customer experience at The Grove, and the accurate data the GC2 launch monitor produces will help every visitor feel like a professional golfer for the day.

“With our full-length driving range and grass tees, it was important to select a transportable, versatile unit, which would provide accurate data, despite potential wind interference. The GC2 system can be set up easily before each session and the precise yardage charts and ability to review a shot within seconds on a mobile phone or tablet helps to enrich each lesson and enhance the various club fitting services we offer.”

Foresight’s technology images the exact movement of the dimple patterns on the golf ball, to ensure pure, reliable data, making it the only technology suitable for all seasons and conditions – whether indoors or on the range – and produces data for every club, every shot, every player and every swing, all to the highest accuracy levels in the industry.

Since its launch five years ago, Foresight Sports technology has revolutionised club fitting and analysis. Having been swiftly approved and recommended by many of the world’s leading club manufacturers – including Titleist, Cleveland/Srixon, Cobra/Puma, PING and TaylorMade and dozens of other leading brands – it’s since been adopted by many of the world’s top players and coaches, such as Butch Harmon, while leading golf retailers, including American Golf in the UK, have installed GC2 in many stores.

Indeed, Harmon, who is installing Foresight Sports technology in all of his academies, was unabashed in his admiration, stating “there’s nothing that can compare with the GC2; it’s far and away the best we’ve ever used”.
In the UK, the last three Foremost Golf ‘professional of the year’ award winners have each credited Foresight Sports’ GC2 for revolutionising their business, while it is GC2 technology which drives the much-lauded Sky Sports Shot Centre on the broadcaster’s weekly PGA Tour coverage.
