Experience the MAJOR of Golf Business

The 2019 PGA Merchandise Show was a true milestone event for Foresight Sports. We saw the unveiling of multiple products including new hardware, new software, and a completely new concept.

Outdoor demo day

Outdoor demo day saw the launch of Total RangeTM – Foresight’s game-changing entry into the entertainment driving range market. Total Range is the ultimate performance and entertainment solution for driving ranges of every size, audience and ability level.

Visitors to the Foresight booth were among the first to receive a full demonstration of the Total Range concept. It is comprised of multiple components, from the back-office purchase and ticketing system through to the screens, launch monitor technology and range of performance-enhancing apps and games for customers to enjoy.

Outdoor demo day also hosted the full launch of the brand new GCHawk. This overhead-mounted launch monitor is Foresight’s next step forward in camera-based golf technology. GCHawk features the same quadrascopic technology as the award-winning GCQuad and offers a new level of freedom for left- and right-handed golfers, with no need for any technology on the hitting surface.

Indoor show

The indoor show hosted another impressive Foresight booth. PGA Professionals, industry leaders, driving range and club owners, coaches, club-fitters and enthusiasts packed the five cutting-edge simulation bays containing GCHawks or GCQuads for the duration of the show.

Another huge crowd-pleaser at the 2019 show was the introduction of Foresight Fairgrounds. This range of mini-games is designed to get non-golfers and beginners interested and improving, but will also provide hours of entertainment for accomplished players. Fairground’s addictive skill-building combined with carnival-style fun will be a huge hit for families and younger players.

A full programme of demonstrations from Foresight advocates attracted huge crowds across the show week. The workshops included long drive, iron, short game and putting – all powered and enhanced by Foresight technology.
