Toptracer has added the Old Course at St Andrews to the list of world-class courses available to play in Toptracer Range’s ‘Virtual Golf’ mode.

Available as a premium course at Toptracer Range locations, the scenery and challenge of the Old Course can now be experienced by players who signed up on the Toptracer Range Community app.

Using cameras mounted around the facility and 21-inch monitors found at each hitting bay, Toptracer Range technology displays an array of details of each shot – including shape, distance, speed, launch angle and more. Data is instantly recorded and displayed on the screen through a player profile that can continuously be accessed through the Toptracer Range app, which is free to download on iOS and Android.

As part of the Old Course challenge on Toptracer, players will be able to play the par-three 11th hole as part of a ‘Closest to Pin’ competition.

Paul Williams, General Manager Europe at Toptracer, said: “The addition of the Old Course at St Andrews offers Toptracer Range owners a great opportunity to provide guests with the challenge of playing what is arguably the world’s most iconic golf course. We are committed to growing the game and with that comes making traditional golf accessible, so that casual or competitive golfers alike can experience the rich history of the original links style course at any of the hitting bays at Toptracer Range locations.”

Danny Campbell, Commercial Director St Andrews Links, added: “We are hugely proud of what the Old Course represents and symbolises to golfers around the world, and we are committed to harnessing the passion for this iconic place to engage with new audiences and grow the game. Making the Old Course available at Toptracer Ranges will ensure the Home of Golf is accessible to a new generation of golfers; providing a fun, engaging and tech-driven experience that appeals to seasoned players, friends, family, and first-time golfers alike.”
