The GCHawk – the latest member of the ForesighT GC family of launch monitorS

The GCHawk was fully unveiled at the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show at the Orange County Convention Centre in Orlando, Florida.

The GCHawk is a true example of next-generation golfing technology. Building on the award-winning quadrascopic camera-based technology of the GCQuad launch monitor from Foresight Sports, the GCHawk is already being hailed as the future of simulation and entertainment driving ranges.

Designed to be installed on the ceiling of the golf simulator the GCHawk is, despite its impressive size, surprisingly discreet. In addition to the aesthetic benefits and convenience of not having a launch monitor down on the hitting surface, the technology packed into the GCHawk provides a huge hitting area. Left- and right-handed players can hit shots one after another without any need to move – or even adjust – the technology.

As Director of Foresight Sports Europe Edward Doling explains, “with the GCHawk, both right and left-handed players can hit shots without the need to move the technology, adding greater fluidity to game play. The elevated position above the player’s head provides a new level of playing freedom, making the virtual game experience as true-to-life as possible.

“The demand for the product is simply a sign of the times. The amazing capabilities of the GCHawk and unmatched accuracy satisfies a wide range of needs from residential simulators and entertainment ranges, to fitting and instruction studios,” he added.

Featuring the same unrivalled indoor and outdoor accuracy that the golfing industry has come to expect from Foresight Sports, the GCHawk is fully compatible with the latest FSX 2018 simulation software.

Throughout the 2019 PGA Merchandise Show – from the outdoor demonstration day to the final day of the exhibition – the Foresight Sports booth was packed with golf professionals and enthusiasts from all over the world queuing up to try out the GCHawk.

Foresight representatives for the USA, the UK and Europe, Canada, and the Asian Pacific markets were on-hand to demonstrate the ceiling-mounted launch monitor. Customer installation enquiries covered every conceivable golfing simulation environment, from entertainment driving ranges and golf clubs to custom golf simulators and swing rooms, as well residential golf simulators for private customers.
