Foresight Fairgrounds – bringing golf entertainment simulation software to all ages and abilities

Foresight Fairgrounds – the latest golf entertainment software release from Foresight Sports – was launched at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida.

Foresight Fairgrounds is a series of mini games, combining traditional fairground entertainment with golf short game skill-building. The games feature challenges of varying skill levels, catering to all levels of golfer from absolute beginners and very young children, right the way through to highly accomplished and professionals.

Four games have been released so far:

  • Putt-Skee – as the name suggests, this game is a take on Skee-Ball that focuses exclusively on putting. Players simply put towards a series of targets offering different points and aim to achieve the highest score possible.
  •  Shooting Gallery – this game requires players to hit a number of moving targets on the screen, requiring precise speed and timing as well as an accurate shot.
  •  Splash Wall – the Splash Wall game requires targets of different shapes and sizes to be filled up with paint that hit the wall as players hit their shots. The speed of the ball affects the amount of paint that hits the target, encouraging the development of accuracy with greater power.
  • Balloon Pop – this chipping game requires players to hit the ball over a barrier at a wall of balloons; the ball hits the screen as an animated dart – the object being to pop as many of the highest scoring balloons as possible whilst avoiding the bombs…

Following the success of entertainment gaming apps Zombie Golf and Golf Roulette, we’re delighted to build on our collection with the introduction of the highly-entertaining Fairgrounds challenges,” said Edward Doling, Director of Foresight Sports Europe.

What we’re most excited about with Fairgrounds is being able to offer non-golfers a fun experience in a social environment with particular focus on growing the game. We think Foresight Fairgrounds will be a huge hit with families and have a positive impact on junior golf in general.” he added.

The Foresight booth simulators at the PGA Merchandise Show drew crowds from the beginning of the exhibition until the final day wound down, with Fairgrounds taking up a huge amount of the screen-time on all the sims over the three days.

As Foresight Fairgrounds opens up golf simulation to previously un-catered-for customers such as beginners and young children – and with owners and investors from all over the world now seeing the new software first-hand ­– the potential for the entertainment driving range sector is enormous.
