BigShots Golf®, ClubCorp’s tech-driven entertainment and culinary experience offering fun for all ages and skill levels, has partnered with leading global technology company, TrackMan™, to bring its state-of-the-art, TrackMan Range system to all new BigShots Golf locations beginning in 2022.
BigShots Golf, which offers golf-based games, scratch kitchens, elevated sports bars and entertainment for all ages and skill levels, announced the partnership in advance of the opening of the brands first corporate-owned location in Bryan, Texas this winter. As the leader in golf technology, TrackMan Range features a Doppler radar-based system to cover the entire tee box and outfield to provide eight of the most essential data points including carry and total distance, ball speed, height, launch angle, launch direction, side and from pin.
“We are very excited to partner with TrackMan and provide our guests access to the same technology that many of the world’s best professionals utilize,” said BigShots Golf Chief Operating Officer TJ Schier. “As the popularity of golf continues to rapidly increase, BigShots Golf is leading the way with new innovative technology, elevated dining and fun for the whole family. Partnering with TrackMan Range will provide our guests with the best possible golf experience, whether it’s their first time playing the game or if they’re a seasoned regular.”
While BigShots Golf will continue to use its proprietary games and technology like Knockout, Pinball and Live Play™, avid golfers will now have access TrackMan’s library of virtual courses which includes some of the most renowned golf courses in the world. The move also allows BigShots Golf to grow its game offering to bring new experiences targeted towards every level of player through leagues, tournaments and Live Play™ challenges.
“We are very excited to work with BigShots Golf and ClubCorp,” said TrackMan CEO and co-founder Klaus Eldrup-Jorgensen. “BigShots Golf has top locations and their commitment to help golfers get better while making golf more exciting and fun fits perfectly with our driving range and simulator solutions. The new opening in Bryan, Texas, is a fantastic venue with golf, food, and leisure firmly at the center of the concept. We look forward to partnering with BigShots as it expands its portfolio throughout the US and rest of the world.”
The TrackMan technology is currently planned for installation in BigShots Golf locations opening in 2022, including Bryan, Texas, St. George, Utah, and Naples, Florida.
