Golf Box MJ newThe ultimate all-in-one golf simulation facility for the home user is now available after innovative Cornish construction company Building with Boxes joined forces with the manufacturer of the sport’s leading technology, Foresight Sports.

The stunning, precision-engineered, contemporary Golf Box structure is designed to maximise energy efficiency, providing a facility that it is warm in winter and cool in summer. It also features exceptional sound proofing to minimise noise, plus Foresight Sports’ cutting-edge cable-and-calibration-free technology, which is used by many of the world’s leading golf destinations and tour professionals.

Incorporating a full GC2 smart-camera-driven golf simulator – as used by Sky Sports and The Woburn Club among many others – the Golf Box provides the ultimate year-round, at-home, indoor practice facility, whether for game improvement or fun, with seating for up to six players to enjoy their golfing experience together.

The GC2 – which measures ball-flight data at launch using ultra-high-speed cameras – is the most accurate ball-tracking technology in golf today and is utilised and recommended by many of the world’s leading club manufacturers, including Titleist, Cleveland/Srixon, Cobra/Puma, PING and TaylorMade. It’s also used by many of the world’s top professional golfers and dozens of other leading brands within the golf industry.

Indeed, Ryder Cup hero Ian Poulter takes his portable GC2 with him wherever he goes. He said: “(It’s) Easy to travel with, simple set up, instant feedback … everything I need to work on my game and equipment … no more excuses.”

The pre-engineered Golf Box structure is designed to be assembled on-site with ease. Created using an industry proven insulated panel system, with thermally efficient windows and doors, for maximum energy efficiency, the buildings – or boxes – are extremely durable, fully integrated for a range of potential gaming uses and wired for surround sound and home-cinema use, making them a great long-term, multi-use, and adaptable investment.

Suitable for domestic gardens, or as separate buildings in golf clubs, hotels or other leisure facilities, the Golf Box brings together two of the world’s leading technologies, in different industries, to provide the ultimate all-weather, luxury golf practice and playing facility.

Foresight Sports Europe’s sales director, Ed Doling, explained: “The GC2 driven Foresight Sports golf simulator – incorporating golf’s most in-demand technology – is borne of more than 20 years of technological innovation, during which time we have supplied hundreds of top golf facilities and dozens of the world’s top players.

“Teaming up with Building with Boxes to develop the Golf Box gives the golfer a complete package with which to enjoy the game from the comfort of their own garden and extends the opportunities for other golf, leisure or holiday providers to install extra facilities to boost visitor numbers , increase revenue and keep customers happy, whatever the weather.”

Stephen Boyd, of Truro-based Building with Boxes, said: “As a keen golfer with a busy work schedule and infrequent opportunities to practise my golf, I was delighted to work with Foresight Sports to provide the ultimate golfing experience. At Building with Boxes we pride ourselves in leading the way and developing new and innovative building products.

“We set to work with Foresight Sports to design a technologically advanced, energy efficient all-weather solution with specific acoustic insulation to ensure that neighbours won’t be disturbed.

“Now golfers can have their friends around to train on or play the best golf courses in the world with Foresight Sports’ GC2 smart-camera system – a system that was designed initially to provide accurate data for the world’s top golfers, coaches and manufacturers and now provides the most accurate golf simulation on the market, affording an immediate, realistic and exciting game. The simulator also still provides instant and accurate feedback on the golfer’s technique, all in the comfort and privacy of their own gardens.”

The Golf Box delivered, installed and fully equipped with the GC2 starts from £68,850 plus vat.
