Marina Bay Golf Course in Singapore has installed Foresight Sports’ Total Range package at its 114-bay golf range facility.

Each of the 114 bays at Marina Bay’s driving range features Foresight’s touch-screen technology

The luxury resort is the first venue in the Asia Pacific region to have invested in the cutting-edge performance and entertainment technology, which combines industry-leading launch monitor technology with a broad spectrum of performance entertainment software.

The package included a precisely replicated digital version of the Marina Bay range – to deliver an unmatched level of precision, variety, and pure entertainment value to players of every age and skill level.

According to Foresight Sports’ Vice President Jon Watters, Marina Bay Golf Course’s premier range facility is the perfect venue to showcase the future of the sport given the popularity and accessibility of the facility.

“What we’re most excited about is the opportunity to bring a complete game experience to the local golfing audience. Players can utilise every club in their bag, hit every type of shot, and have absolute confidence that the results are perfectly accurate. That’s really what sets Total Range apart – no limitations in experiencing the game the way players of all skill levels and ages want.”

Every bay at the Marina Bay range will be equipped with Foresight Sports’ advanced tracking technology, as well as a large touchscreen console that allows players to see real-time performance feedback and access a library of world-class champion courses, games and skill-building challenges. Competing friends and family can also keep track of their game results via a widescreen monitor located behind each bay.

Ng Ser Miang, chairman of NCI Golf, said: “Technology has transformed the way we learn, teach and play. Our partnership with Foresight Sports is perfectly aligned with our aim to broaden the appeal of golf by making game enriching technology more readily accessible. Our Total Range equipped facility will provide an unprecedented gameplay and entertainment experience not only to our existing range patrons, but to everyone who’s ever wanted to experience the game of golf.”

Skill challenges such as nearest-to-the-pin and longest drive can be played on selected virtual holes or the range and are priced on a per shot or event basis. Additional seating space will be available on the first level of the driving range to facilitate groups wishing to order food and drinks while playing.
