(LONDON, England) – Inrange® – creator of the industry’s leading golf ball tracking system that transforms driving ranges into practice and entertainment destinations – announces customers at Inrange® facilities across the globe now have the ability to play simulated 18-hole rounds on some of the world’s most acclaimed tracks through Inrange+™ Courses.
The new Inrange+™ Courses virtual course offerings, developed in partnership with aboutGOLF®, are an expansion of the Inrange+™ multiplayer product, which is designed to bring more players to the range, more often. Inrange+™ Courses offers something for every type of golfer, as dedicated players can try their luck at world-renowned venues while first-time or entertainment golfers have a welcoming introduction to playing a full round. Also, golf range owners everywhere can provide an additional source of customer retention with an immersive multiplayer experience set on some of the most challenging and enjoyable destinations around the globe, including major championship venues.
“The launch of Inrange+™ Courses is an important step in growing the adoption of our multiplayer experiences, as our system offers dynamic entertainment for all player types,” says Inrange® CEO, Nick Longley. “Our goal is to create an atmosphere of excitement and fun, where everyone in the community can gather to spend time and enjoy each other’s company, regardless of if they are avid players or have never touched a club.”
On the partnership between Inrange® and aboutGOLF®, aboutGOLF® CEO, Brett Campbell, said, “At aboutGOLF®, we’re passionate about making the game more accessible to golfers everywhere. This partnership does just that, and we’re proud to be an Inrange® collaborator.”
Inrange® was founded by a group of highly respected South African engineers who used their expertise in the world of radar and radio telescopes to develop the most advanced, accurate and reliable tracking system in the world. It consists of radar sensors placed in and around a driving range that create a series of interlocking radar fields. Once calibrated, they can determine the origin of each ball (which bay it was hit from), and track its entire flight, no matter how long or short, in real time. The resulting data is relayed either to an in-bay touchscreen or via the cloud to the Inrange® App on the player’s mobile device.
Easily covering a range of 100 bays or more, Inrange’s leading-edge sensors can effortlessly track shots hit from every single bay, and provide detailed real-time data on speed, trajectory, path, landing point and more, to within a yard. Unlike competitor’s systems, they are impervious to all ambient conditions such as darkness, rain, mist and audible noise.
The company offers a variety of unique offerings for facilities and customers to experience the system. A free-to-download app available through the App Store and Google Play lets users track data and play games on their smartphones at Inrange® facilities either solo or with others. Inrange+™ is the ultimate multiplayer golf entertainment experience, where bays are equipped with display monitors and seating, ideal for challenging friends and enjoying a fun day at the range.
Currently, Inrange® facilities are thriving in Europe, South Africa, Abu Dhabi, and in the United States, where the technology was recently installed at The Golf Range @ Branchburg, NJ and the famed David Leadbetter Academy outside of Orlando, FL.
