‘No Recession’ at Sports Coach Systems

7.51am 23rd March 2009 - Corporate

Sports Coach Systems manufactures of Golf Simulators and Golf Simulator Software are based in the heart of Surrey, near London and are enjoying ‘an Indian summer’.

With over 95% of their business devoted to export, the weakness in the £ has enabled Sports Coach to sell more of their systems through their worldwide network of distributors. The company is unique in that it not only manufactures its own hardware but also develops its own Golf Simulator Software, which currently has over 80 courses in its library.

Sports Coach Systems have a policy of enabling all of its customers to update their simulator software free of charge as the programme moves forward. During the last twelve months over 20 upgrades of the software have been available to its customers as a download from their ftp site.

To upgrade the hardware free of charge is not possible but the policy to upgrade at manufactured cost helps customers to keep in touch with the latest technology.

Talking about the latest technology Sports Coach Systems have developed a single camera system to work in conjunction with its current simulator mat electronics. This camera is able to read the exact launch angle of the ball whether hit along the ground or hit in the air with a lob wedge.

This makes the playing of the GPS Golf Simulator more realistic as it also measures ball speed more accurately in conjunction with ball detection. Used as a club fitting tool it can be used throughout the year to generate income and to find the perfect specification of club for all golfers.

This camera system is not only available with the current hardware but can be used in conjunction with all versions of their simulator mats enabling all of their customers to bring their systems right up-to-date.

The Camera system is now available at a cost of £3,000 plus vat and for a limited time Sports Coach Systems are giving away 10 Silver Courses free of charge (worth in excess of £1,650).
