Marina Bay Golf Course partners with leading golf technology provider, Foresight Sports as the first and largest driving range in Asia Pacific to introduce Total Range™, a cutting-edge performance and entertainment technology, suitable for players of every age and skill level.
In an exciting move to benefit golfers at large and make golf more appealing to everyone, Marina Bay Golf Course announces the introduction of an enhanced, all-in-one entertainment experience at its 114-bay golf range facility.
Developed by technology partner, Foresight Sports, the new Total Range™ solution combines industry-leading launch monitor technology with a broad spectrum of performance entertainment software – including a precisely replicated digital version of the golf range outfield – to deliver an unmatched level of precision, variety, and pure entertainment value to players of every age and skill level.
According to Foresight Sports’ Vice President Jon Watters, Marina Bay Golf Course’s premier range facility is the perfect venue to showcase the future of the sport given the popularity and accessibility of the facility.
“What we’re most excited about is the opportunity to bring a complete game experience to the local golfing audience. Players can utilize every club in their bag, hit every type of shot, and experience a full round of golf, compete with other local and global participants, or play family-friendly mini-games. That’s really what sets Total Range apart – no limitations in experiencing the game the way players of all skill levels and ages want.”
Every bay at the Marina Bay Golf Driving Range will be equipped with Foresight Sports’ advanced tracking technology as well as a large touch-screen console that allows players to see real-time performance feedback and access a library of world-class championship courses, games and skill-building challenges. Competing friends and family can also keep track of their game results via a widescreen monitor located behind each bay.
“Technology has transformed the way we learn, teach and play. Our partnership with Foresight Sports is perfectly aligned with our aim to broaden the appeal of golf by making game technology more readily accessible. Our Total Range™ equipped facility will provide an unprecedented gameplay and entertainment experience not only to our existing range patrons, but to everyone who’s ever wanted to experience the game of golf,” said Ng Ser Miang, Chairman of NCI Golf.
Range patrons will have the option to use the launch monitor technology and gaming platform starting at $15 per hour.
The official launch of Total Range™ solution at Marina Bay Golf Driving Range is scheduled for 12 and 13 October.
