When I think about the golf industry over the past 20-years I have been a part of, technology pops into mind. GolfSuites is ready to deliver the next-gen of golf technology through entertainment, a game improvement center and computer tracking featured in high-tech facilities located worldwide. The first thought I and maybe you have about this investment story is TopGolf, an almost identical sports tech enhanced, golf driving range business concept minus the dedicated suites and measurement within inches rather than feet, from what I can tell. The market for golfing entertainment and a unique customer experience is improving and GolfSuite’s feels hundreds if not thousands of these facilities can be built to handle to need. Jerry Ellenburg, Chairman and CEO at GolfSuites said, “Currently, only 5% of that market has been built.” The game needs new markets and players, a fact GolfSuites wants to help facilitate. Will using authentic premium golf balls, games focused on fun and skill development packed into a more than 300 yard long driving range inside a two – four level structure, while measuring and tracking golf balls, do it? Doppler radar based launch monitor technology and premier public and provide VIP hospitality are at the core of this exciting offering and investment opportunity. The Sports Techie community blog has not spoken to anyone associated with GolfSuites but it is easy to see how this business concept is family fun for all.
To provide a fun, inclusive and engaging golf-themed entertainment facility centered on gaming, hospitality and game improvement while helping to grow the game of golf.
