Adventure Golf and Sports (AGS) in cooperation with Holovis is introducing a nine-hole sports-themed 360GOLF course. “This is high-tech miniature golf that debuted at last November’s IAAPA trade show with a prototype Duck Gallery hole, which resulted in substantial interest within the industry,” states Scott Lundmark, AGS president. “As a result, our companies are now introducing a complete nine-hole course based on popular sports.”
According to Lundmark, the sport-themed 360GOLF holes feature automatic scoring, gamification and other interactive sensory play features powered by an exclusive Holotrac golf ball interacting with sensors throughout the course. The game is designed to encourage repeat play.
The proprietary product, developed by Holovis, has been sold in the UK and Far East markets, and now AGS is selling the product throughout North America. “At the IAAPA show, guests played Duck Gallery, a carnival-themed golf-hole, and asked about the nine-hole model and the option of creating a signature branded model for their exclusive use,” says Lundmark. “We are currently working with several prospects on each of these options.”
The new nine-hole sports-themed 360GOLF miniature golf experience features these fun interactive golf holes:
- Formula 1 Racing
- Horse Racing
- Pool (Billiards)
- Surfing (includes a rideable surf board!)
AGS says the new sport-themed 360GOLF course can be installed indoors or outdoors (mini golf holes are weather & corrosion proof) and is ideal for Amusement Parks, FECs, Cruise Ships, Restaurants, Bars / Brewpubs, Hotels and anywhere fun activities are used to attract and retain guests.
According to Holovis engineers, each player is assigned a ball with a unique signal, so all scoring and strokes for each ball are personalized to one guest. " A large high definition screen is embedded into the marquee to feedback player scores, fun animation, stroke count, and events as they happen in real time,” states Jos Van Der Steen, Development Director at Holovis. “The guest sensory experience includes reactive media, sound effects, and LED lighting to accent game play as it happens."
“The Game Board will convey the rules of the play, par, and highlight values for bonuses and other game options. The Game Board will ask each player to put their ball on the tee to begin play, which triggers a timer to ensure play is timely and bonuses may even be given for low play times.”
Adventure Golf & Sports (AGS) is a global leader in the design and installation of fun, interactive, cost-effective entertainment attractions.
