Toptracer has been revolutionising how people watch golf on TV. Utilising advanced proprietary technology, Toptracer tracks and displays ball flight in real-time during more than 100 broadcasts per year—making it the most used ball-tracking technology in golf.
Toptracer Range was launched in 2012, the first range prototype used the original Toptracer TV technology to track and analyse golf shots on the driving range. Toptracer Range uses cameras and monitors in each bay, that displays the flight path of the golf balls along with valuable shot data, including distance, speed, launch angle, shape and more.
The technology has redefined the driving range experience — with the focus on visual enhancement through ‘digital gamification’ of the sport, the result provides a more engaging and rewarding practice experience for players. Along with improvements in visual technology and game options, range design changes were developed to lift group and social play putting a new twist on social / leisure entertainment. This has seen the range experience move beyond just golfers, appealing to a much wider audience, including casual and non-golfers alike.
The technology provides instant shot replays and statistical feedback on interactive game screens in your hitting bay, which allows players to make swing adjustments and immediately see the impact on their golf shot. For groups the game options, environment and easy to use technology makes the whole experience fun and engaging.
