TRAVERSE CITY, Mich. -- Dancin' Dogg Golf - maker of the award-winning OptiShot Infrared Simulator, the ultimate in-home virtual golf system - has launched Fylde Links as the latest replica of a major championship course available in the company's premium library.
A hyper-accurate re-creation of the renowned British club set to soon host its 11th Open Championship, Fylde Links opens with a memorable par-3 and eventually stretches to nearly 7,100 yards. Founded in 1886, this true links layout alongside the Lancashire shoreline is often buffeted by winds and features 206 bunkers, an average of 11 per hole.
"From Bobby Jones to Gary Player to Seve and many others, this club boasts a heritage of great champions that truly inspired our in-house design team," says Brandon Theophilus, CEO of Dancin' Dogg Golf. "We've captured the smallest details, enabling OptiShot users to play this great venue with family and friends from the comfort of home."
Like the company's other premium layouts - including major championship venues Atlanta Highlands, Capitol Club, Golden Gate Club, Jones Lake, Monterey Classic, Old Scot, Royal St. Marks and Whispering Dunes - Fylde Links can be downloaded at www.dancindogg.com for a one-time fee of $49.95.
OptiShot (MSRP: $399.95) connects with Windows computers via a plug-and-play interface and requires only 8-½ feet of swing space. With their own clubs, up to four players per round can compete by hitting real balls, foam balls (provided) or no ball at all. Infrared sensors on a durable swing pad precisely record club-head speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight. In addition to Core courses that come with the system, OptiShot users can practice and compete on the par-3 option or a realistic driving range.
