aboutGolf PGA TOUR Compact SimSurround Simulator Introduced
aboutGolf, the world leader in indoor golf simulator technology, has introduced the aboutGolf PGA TOUR Compact SimSurround Simulator, the company announced today.
The new aboutGolf PGA TOUR Compact SimSurround has the same 15-foot footprint as most standard simulator systems, including the aboutGolf PGA TOUR Classic, but offers the immersive experience only available in a three-screen unit.
aboutGolf pioneered the three-screen simulator with the introduction of the original 25-foot SimSurround in 2008. Ideal for residences and indoor golf centers, the new, compact model makes the immersive experience more widely available. Homeowners with space limitations and commercial facilities looking to optimize floor space are no longer forced to choose between size and impact.
"The new Compact SimSurround offers all the wow factor of the original SimSurround in a smaller package," says Chuck Faust, aboutGolf's President and Chief Operating Officer. "We're the only company offering this type of innovative system, which features all the technology golfers have come to expect from aboutGolf while engaging the golfer at a new level."
The aboutGolf PGA TOUR Compact SimSurround-whose complete standard size is 15 feet wide by 20 feet long by 10 feet, 6 inches high-features PGA TOUR Software with range and course play, 29 standard courses, 3Trak ball-tracking technology and club data, as well as screen, enclosure, computer and turf.
"The Compact SimSurround by aboutGolf provided everything I wanted - the size, the experience, the features and the price," says Mickey Hamono, owner of a Compact SimSurround in Chicago. "The experience is absolutely just like the real thing; I can play Pebble Beach from home with coastline filling my view."
The new aboutGolf PGA TOUR Compact SimSurround is priced at $62,000.
aboutGolf, the world leader in indoor golf simulator technology, finalized a long-term licensing partnership agreement with the PGA TOUR in December 2008 for the development and execution of aboutGolf/PGA TOUR-branded simulator products.
