Essex academy installs Awesome Golf software

10.37am 16th September 2020 - New Products

PGA Professional David Hewitt’s ‘Golf in Progress’ facility in Essex has become the first indoor venue in the UK to install Awesome Golf software across its simulator bays.  

The Awesome Golf suite, which offers range-style practice alongside fun games and video game style golf courses, is being used in conjunction with the new, low cost FlightScope Mevo+ radar launch monitors.

The FlightScope name is synonymous with short shot measuring accuracy which makes it the ideal solution for indoors facilities. When combined with the Awesome Golf suite it delivers an exceptional experience for players of all ages and abilities.  

David Hewitt, who owns the recently-opened ‘Golf in Progress’, a multi-bay indoor golf academy in Leigh-on-Sea, trialled various combinations before settling on installing FlightScope|Awesome Golf.

David explains: “We tried a few different pieces of software for the Mevo+, running them in different bays to see how they performed and to get customer feedback.  We have a really varied customer base and it became clear very quickly that Awesome Golf was the best fit for us.  The style and presentation makes it easy for everyone to use and it covers everything from serious practice to more fun games and virtual golf courses.”

Visitors to the venue are benefitting from a neat QR code log in system which when combined with the free Awesome Golf Community App enables them to track their own practice data.  Golf in Progress customers can even go head to head against players at other Awesome Golf facilities around the world and see who tops the charts in the skills challenges.  

Gavin, owner of Awesome Golf, has enjoyed working with Golf in Progress to develop a system that suits their specific needs and most of all one that the customers are really enjoying the games. He comments:  “The new system at Golf in Progress shows just how versatile we can be.  By using iPads and projectors we have been able to keep costs low without detracting from the user experience.  It opens up a whole host of opportunities for us as a business particularly when it comes to delivering solutions for short driving ranges as well as the growing indoor simulator market.”

The new website offers a free 14-day trial for individual FlightScope users and more details of the range and simulator solutions available. For more details about Awesome Golf for home, coaching or range use, or to arrange a demo contact
