Kids Around The World Think Golf Is Awesome

9.50am 15th October 2021 - Growing the GameInnovation Centre

Over the last few weeks Awesome Golf has confirmed its belief that children around the world are leading the charge when it comes to new ways to play the game. Founder Gavin Hamer’s son, Noah, was the inspiration for the software, which is now played by FlightScope users across every continent, so the company’s success in this growing market is almost inevitable.

At the recent European Tour BMW Championships, golfers as young as 3 racked up a staggering 1 shot per minute for 5 days on the bay that Awesome Golf was invited to host by the Golf Foundation. Young golfers queued to hit shots into Awesome Golf’s virtual swimming pools on Super Splash and took part in a closest to the pin challenge, just 2 of the 13 options available as part of the Awesome Golf simulator software.

Meanwhile, Zac Wolfe, the 5-year-old Australian golf prodigy (pictured), caused a massive spike in sales in the region after posting images of him playing Awesome Golf on his FlightScope Mevo+ on Instagram @ZacWolfe28) during the country’s most recent lockdown!

“We were looking for ways to play golf at home that would allow Zac to practice and play,” explains Jeremy Wolfe, Zac’s Dad. “Awesome Golf has the perfect balance. The games are rewarding and fun, with the club and ball data quite incredible. It’s been fantastic seeing Zac so motivated and watching him progress his game, despite being unable to hit the course.”

As sponsors of the British Junior Golf Tour, Awesome Golf has seen demand for home simulators increasing over the last few years.

“Having a system at home isn’t as financially demanding as it once was,” comments Gavin, Founder of Awesome Golf. “We are certainly seeing families buying Awesome Golf for their FlightScope set ups at home so that kids can get the most out of their game at times that suit them.”

In recognition of this, Awesome Golf has teamed up with MIA Sports Technology and Amtech Range to create a bundle that is ideal to create a play-at-home set up. The bundle options include the FlightScope Mevo+, portable net and mats, details of which can be found here:
