We Put a Golf Simulator … Where?Posted by Ed Kanine on: March 2, 2012
Ed Kanine is a sales representative for aboutGolf.
I’ve been with aboutGolf for more than eight years and have been part of many golf events that have utilized PGA TOUR Simulators for marketing, entertainment and teaching. Most of the time, these events take play at golf tournaments, tradeshows or hotel banquet rooms, and the setup is usually straight forward – usually!
Only weeks ago, the most unique place I had installed a simulator was Military Island in Times Square. While unique, the space was perfect the weather was perfect and the installation went smoothly. I definitely thought that would be the most memorable place I would have ever set up an aboutGolf simulator.
However, one of our clients, The Clubhouse in Bettendorf, Iowa, recently presented me a new challenge in Miami. Just two weeks ago I had the privilege of installing a golf simulator on the legendary Stargazer/Golf Yacht (http://www.elitetravelgolfcoaches.com/Stargazer—Golf-Yacht.html). Did I mention that we set it up on the helipad?
When guests of the yacht climbed the stairs to the top, their reactions were fantastic. We had two nights of closest-to-the-pin contests (mostly with 17th at TPC Sawgrass) and Chris Larson from the Clubhouse entertained guests with lessons utilizing aboutGolf’s Performance Products – aG Flix and aG Balance Pro. Many lessons were given on the helipad and, despite the many attempts, no one lost any balls!
Unique opportunities like this are one of the reasons I love working with aboutGolf. Regardless of the space or location, we are committed to finding ways to make installations happen. Only a company with customized products can make that claim!
