SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, announced that it has partnered with ProTee United to offer golfers the option to play the Golf Club Game including over 92,000 courses, with their own clubs in a stunning high-definition virtual environment.
The SkyTrak Launch Monitor is a complete practice, play and entertainment System for golf at home.
SkyTrak 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.
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.
The Golf Club Game provides visual presentation and gameplay, as well as the procedural generation of courses and depth of social interaction.
The Course Creator can generate a brand new course in seconds, which can be shared and played immediately online with friends and other gamers across the world. There are also full editing capabilities for courses, tournaments and tours.
“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, match play and four ball,” said Andy Allen, SportTrak’s managing director of golf.
“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,” added Allen.
“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,” he said.
The graphics system of the Golf Club Game is a high resolution and high performance one that allows the user to move in real-time around the course in screen resolutions up to 4K Ultra HD.
This is in strong contrast to other systems that only show a static view. The 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, you can simply navigate 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 may fly with the ball along its trajectory in real time.
Realistic ball flight trajectory, bounce and roll including hooks, slices, pushes, pulls, fades and draws or any combination thereof, i.e. pushed hooks, pulled slices etc. plus wind factors (strength and direction) are also taken into account.
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.
SkyTrak is also a serious tool that accurately reflects the golfer’s actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement without ever leaving home.
Combined with an App and iPad, the Wi-Fi enabled SkyTrak captures the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight over a vivid 3D practice range and virtual golf course.
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 accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the course.
SkyTrak users also have the option to upload their practice and play data to the SkyGolf 360 cloud service for storage, analysis and sharing with friends via the new SkyGolf 360 App, and enjoy the benefits of being part of the fast-growing online community of golfers via integration with popular social networks.
Golfers can choose to purchase an annual subscription to The Golf Club Game or purchase it for a one-time fee.
SkyTrak products are available in Canada through Jancor Agencies.
