Growing The Game: One Court At A Time

12.58am 27th October 2009 - New Products - This story was updated on Thursday, March 18th, 2010

aboutGolf announced today its involvement with Adventure Golf Services’ launch of TheGolfCourt™, a revolutionary new golf product designed to bring golf learning, practice and play to more persons, at a lower cost.

aboutGolf will supply PGA TOUR Simulators and 3Trak launch monitors as options in the golf practice center designed to fit in a tennis court space and targeted at municipalities and organizations with unused or under-utilized tennis courts, buildings, or vacant space.

“Outfitting TheGolfCourt™ with aboutGolf technology will provide a level of learning and practice that cannot be accomplished any other way,” says Chuck Faust, President and COO of aboutGolf. “Whether used in combination with professional instruction or simple self-analysis and practice, PGA TOUR Simulators and 3Trak launch monitors provide actionable data that drives improvement.”

TheGolfCourt™ standard model includes five driving stations, six contoured chipping stations, six future sand bunker positions, a 1,300-square-foot contoured putting area, retractable safety net separators, an overhead ball containment net and installation. The PGA TOUR Simulator and 3Trak launch monitors are optional. Other options include putting turf upgrades, golf course surround graphics, bleachers, signs and a clubhouse.

“TheGolfCourt™ will help state, city and regional parks and recreation departments provide residents a new alternative to learn, practice and play golf – in a 2,700-square-foot area,” comments Scott Lundmark, Director of Sales for Adventure Golf Services, located in Traverse City , Michigan.

TheGolfCourt™ concept is being introduced today at the National Recreation Parks Association annual trade show.

“aboutGolf has always put a high priority on growing the game of golf,” says Bill Bales, Founder and CEO of aboutGolf. “Indoor golf has contributed to increasing accessibility to the game, breaking down barriers to entry. Given that history, TheGolfCourt™ seemed like a natural extension of that initiative.”

aboutGolf and Adventure Golf Services envision that TheGolfCourt™ will be used as an amenity or a profit centre by hotels, resorts, parks, condo/timeshares, senior living facilities, school systems, the military, golf pros, golf courses and driving ranges. The compact size will be a benefit in countries or cities with space limitations and where real golf courses or training facilities are logistically difficult to access.
