Pine Ridge Golf Club in Surrey has become the 100th golf facility in Europe to install Toptracer Range technology. This landmark installation at the Camberley-based venue, which boasts an 18-hole course and a 36-bay floodlit range, also brings the total number of Toptracer Range hitting bays to 1,700 – each with the capability of hosting up to four guests at any one time.
Commenting on reaching the recent milestones, Toptracer’s European General Manager, Paul Williams, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to have reached the landmark of installing our 100th Toptracer Range facility in Europe. There are no signs of the Toptracer Range revolution slowing down, and we’ve also now reached a staggering 1,700 total bays across Europe. This is a great achievement, but we won’t be slowing up as we’re fully committed to providing golf facilities globally with the most exciting product in golf.”
Using cameras mounted around the facility and 21-inch monitors found in each hitting bay, Toptracer Range technology produces an array of details relating to each shot struck – including distance, speed, launch angle, shape and more. Data is instantly recorded and displayed on the screen through a player profile that can be accessed via the Toptracer Range community application. Industry-leading ball tracing technology allows Toptracer to provide accurate, live shot data that can be used for practice purposes or to compete in games and challenges with friends.
Toptracer Range (then, Protracer) was first installed at New Malden (World of Golf) in 2012. Following TopGolf’s purchase of Protracer, the company’s new Toptracer Range technology was then developed and distributed to facilities across the globe. More recently, Toptracer Range installed its largest driving range facility, ToppGolf AS, in Norway. With 78 bays, the facility is now the largest and most technologically advanced practice destination in Scandinavia.
Toptracer Range has already been introduced at over 200 venues worldwide. These include leading clubs in the USA and Europe, as well as facilities in Australia, Canada, Central America, Asia and the Middle East.
