Dancin' Dogg golf simulator ready for holiday season shoppers

TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- No matter the weather outside, the compact and affordable Dancin' Dogg Shot Making Simulator offers a chance for users to practice, play golf and improve their games. The revolutionary new product is now available for holiday season retail sale, and for about the price of a new driver gives golfers a chance to hone their swings on a simulator that runs off a home or laptop computer.

"The newest generation of our product is something that is within reach of most everyone, and it offers an experience that is exciting, helpful and realistic," said Russell Edens, president and chief executive officer of Dancin' Dogg. "We've updated virtually all the elements of our simulator and the result is a compact and portable unit that will give golfers swing feedback that will ultimately translate, given repeat and proper practice, to better performance on the golf course."

While golf simulators ranging in price from $20,000 to $40,000 have been around for a few years, "Dancin' Dogg" is the first product to offer affordability with its $399 retail price. "People who have had a chance to sample or test our product are usually stunned to see what we're selling for under $400," said Edens. "And for the price, you don't need to be a Tour player or part of a celebrity entourage to afford our product." On that latter note, Edens is referring to the golf simulator seen in HBO's hit series "Entourage."

"It's amazing the number of calls and emails we've received connecting our product to the simulator seen in "Entourage," said Edens.

In addition to being the first simulator dedicated to improving your golf game, the Dancin' Dogg Shot Making Simulator also provides world-class virtual golf and swing analysis. Drawing rave reviews at trade shows and from golf industry publications, the product is also bundled with the EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour 07 and now works with the EA Sports Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 golf game which provides opportunities for simulated rounds on many of the world's great courses, including Pebble Beach and St. Andrews. "By investing countless hours tuning the Tiger Woods game play, we now expect the first words out of users' mouths to be 'Wow!,'" said Edens. "Trust us -- the realism is amazing. It's as much fun as simulators costing $20,000-$40,000.

"This is a very exciting release for Dancin' Dogg Golf as it contains the most requested features from our customers," added Edens. "Our most requested software feature has been wood support. Everyone wants to hit the "big dogg" and now you can use your driver, in fact any club, in this version. We've also enlarged the turf hitting area on top of the simulator to provide the most satisfying experience hitting directly off the simulator."
