Sports Coach Systems have filmed a short piece for Sky Television. Due to be going out on the Allsports Show, Sky Sports 1, this Friday between 6 & 7 pm, the film will explain the process of taking a golf course architect’s drawings and from them producing 3D simulations.
Carrig Glas in Ireland, the course that world No 8 player Retief Goosen has co-designed with Jeff Howes Golf Design, was used to demonstrate the benefits of Sports Coach’s 3D simulation service.
Tommy Kearns of Kearns Developments in Dublin, the developer of the new resort in Longford, Ireland, said that the simulation would help enormously in showing prospective members and purchasers of the homes available around the courses exactly what Carrig Glas will look like, once completed.
Retief Goosen added that the simulation was a great way of seeing and playing a course, before it was completed, which would help in any design changes and alterations, which could take place before the expensive earth moving is carried out. Retief Goosen Design is currently designing golf courses in South Africa, Korea, and Ireland.
Sports Coach have been developing their simulation software over the last six years and will shortly be in a position to provide simulations of some of the world’s great courses.
