XGOLF selected by Choice Turf Driving Range in Snohomish, Washington

LOS ANGELES -- XGOLF, the world's most technologically-advanced golf simulator, club-fitting and instructional system, has been chosen by Choice Turf Driving Range in Snohomish, Wash., as its feature attraction.

The frequent rainy weather presents no obstacle at the new state-of-the-art destination, because visitors are eager to play XGOLF's 93 famous courses. They know that XGOLF is the most realistic simulated golf experience in the world. And instructors at the range are filling their lesson schedules, as XGOLF's exceptional XBirdie instructional software is a big draw.

"Choice Turf Driving Range will satisfy the needs of even the most discriminating golfers," said Jay Russo, chief marketing officer and chief strategy officer for XGOLF. "Visitors to this fine new facility will appreciate the detailed instruction, successful game improvement and optimal simulated play that XGOLF provides."

About Choice Turf Driving Range
Choice Turf Driving Range is family owned and operated. Located in the heart of the Snohomish Valley, it has tremendous views of the Cascade Mountains and green grass as far as the eye can see. With over 60 hitting stations, including more than 30 grass tee boxes and a giant putting and chipping green, the facility allows golfers to fine tune their games in a variety of ways. The clubhouse features the XGOLF simulator, performing over 6,000 calculations per swing. XGOLF produces data of the utmost accuracy and precision while offering simulated play at some of the most prestigious and challenging golf courses in the world.

Head Professional Mike Stocker, available to golfers for all instructional needs, conducts lessons on the XGOLF simulator with two high-speed cameras, resulting in noticeable swing improvement for his students.

"XGOLF is invaluable to us because we get a lot of rain here in Washington state," said Stocker, "and our customers love the opportunity to play golf indoors. XGOLF is critical for my lessons, as it allows my students to visualize their swings and make necessary changes.

"I love using XGOLF's XBirdie in my instruction. It automatically records video footage and slows down the swing so I can explain the analysis to my students. I can draw lines and boxes to help them understand - a great tool for me.

"It blows my mind how accurate XGOLF is. No matter what shot or distance a golfer hits, XGOLF's precision is impeccable."

XGOLF's exclusive design, durability and cutting-edge technological features make it the most exceptional and innovative yet value-driven golf-simulator system. With unique features such as XPLATE (Variable Lie Positioning Plate) and XBALL (Intelligent Ball Teeing), the authenticity of XGOLF's simulated golf is unparalleled, replicating real shots on the screen and providing the most realistic golf experience possible. As a leading technology provider, XGOLF has as its main mission to listen and innovate based on customers' evolving needs and expectations.

The XPLATE Variable Lie Positioning System detects the ground slope and automatically adjusts the slope where a golfer stands to provide a more realistic experience. The slope also can be adjusted manually for practicing uphill, downhill and sidehill-lie shots.

The XBALL Intelligent Teeing System gathers the balls and puts one on the tee before every shot. During the game, it remembers each player's tee-height setting, so that it feels as though a personal caddy has set the ball in place. This feature saves precious time and allows the player to concentrate on the game.

Retailers, instructors, club fitters and avid individual golfers look to XGOLF to provide the most exciting and rewarding golf-simulation experience available anywhere.

The realism and beauty of the XGOLF playing experience is matched only by the accuracy and precision of its swing-analysis technology. Swing analysis, an integral and important aspect of the game, is easily accessible and highly accurate with XGOLF. Every caliber golfer, from tour player to occasional recreational player, can benefit from the unlimited game-improvement potential and opportunities XGOLF offers. And instructors worldwide count on XGOLF to deliver the finest analysis capability to enhance their teaching techniques and leverage cutting-edge technologies to help their students make precise swing adjustments for improved results. Through the use of strategically-placed numerous optical sensors, XGOLF tracks extensive swing data, providing detailed shot information, video analysis, weight-shift analysis and data analysis.
