The announcement of a partnership between SkyTrak LLC and ProTee United means that SkyTrak owners can now play the 92,000-plus virtual golf courses on The Golf Club Game with their own clubs in the stunning, high-definition SkyTrak environment – at home, at the golf club, at the driving range, or at a friend’s house.
“SkyTrak now offers a truly mind-boggling choice of golf courses,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyCaddie senior vice-president, international sales and marketing. “You could say that the sky is no longer the limit. With SkyTrak and The Golf Club Game, you now have enough golf for several lifetimes.”
SkyTrak LLC is a joint venture of SkyGolf – makers of SkyCaddie, the trusted golf rangefinder – and SportTrak. The SkyTrak Launch Monitor is the complete Practice, Play and Entertainment System for golf at home.
SkyTrak accurately captures thousands of data points from a golfer hitting balls with their own clubs into a net to simulate practice and play as if you were on the course or practice tee.
And now, with The Golf Club Game, golfers can use their SkyTrak to play golf on over 92,000 PC-compatible, high-definition courses uniquely created for The Golf Club Game.
Jacqui Surman said: “The Golf Club Game gives SkyTrak users a great option to interact with other golfers by challenging their friends on a new or existing course in real time to beat their best round and enjoy tournaments, stroke play, matchplay and fourball.
“You can work your way through the huge database of user-created courses, each rated by other golfers so it’s easy to find the best courses to play. Or you can create your own courses and publish them for the rest of the world to enjoy. You’ll never get bored playing the same courses over and over.”
A graphic of The Golf Club Game
The Golf Club Game generates high-resolution, high-performance graphics which enable the user to navigate the golf course in real-time, in screen resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD.
This is in contrast to those other systems which only show a static view. The Golf Club Game graphics system is actually like a continuous movie. For instance, if at any time during the game you want to see what lies behind a hill, simply direct the virtual camera to go and have a look. Course fly-overs and multiple simultaneous views are all standard features. The user can even set the virtual view camera to be in the ball itself so that he/she can fly with the ball on its trajectory in real time.
Realistic ball flight, bounce and roll including hooks, slices, pushes, pulls, fades and draws or any combination thereof plus wind factors (strength and direction) are also taken into account in The Golf Club Game. When chipping and putting, the ball will follow the contour of the surface and its path and speed will be influenced accordingly. Also, the flight trajectories of missed shots are shown including topped or fat shots, skied and shanked shots, etc.
Jacqui Surman added: “While entertaining, SkyTrak is a serious tool which accurately reflects the golfer’s actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement without ever needing to leave home.”
SkyTrak also offers various challenges for engaging practice such as Closest to the Pin, Longest Drive and Targets, along with Shot History Tables, Performance by Club, and helpful data screens.
It’s easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the golf course.
