XGOLF featured at White Pines Golf Dome outside Chicago, Illinois

LOS ANGELES -- XGOLF, a world-renowned technologically-advanced golf simulator, club-fitting and instructional system, now is featured at White Pines Golf Dome, one of the biggest indoor golf domes in the Midwest. Located at the White Pines Golf Course in Bensenville, Ill., near Chicago's O'Hare International Airport, White Pines Golf Dome has been attracting an even larger clientele since the installation of the XGOLF Simulator.

"White Pines Golf Dome is one of the world's premier indoor golf facilities," said James Kim, CEO of XGOLF, "consistently ranked among North America's Top-10 Domes. We are pleased to be the golf simulator of choice for this fine facility."

At White Pines Golf Dome, XGOLF will be used in a variety of ways, including golf lessons, club fitting and individual simulated play - thus drawing an even wider range of customers and increasing revenue for the Dome.

"The XGOLF Simulator is the best one I have ever seen," said Michael Munro, president of White Plains Golf Dome. "We did our due diligence before we obtained it, and no others were as accurate, informative and, most importantly, as much fun as this simulator.

"We are excited to have it here at the White Pines Golf Dome."

About White Pines Golf Dome
White Pines Golf Dome is the area's largest golf dome, measuring 300 feet wide, 300 feet long and 100 feet high, and offers golfers a variety of teaching and practice features. In addition to the state-of-the-art XGOLF Simulator, the indoor golf range includes three large target greens, each surrounded by two bunkers; a 45-foot long contoured putting green; six suspended hitting targets for practicing shot accuracy; and 50 hitting tees on two levels. White Pines Golf dome is open Nov. 1st through May 1st each year.

White Pines Golf Club, a favorite among Chicago-area golfers since 1928, is a full-service golf course with two regulation 18-hole courses and complete banquet facilities. Situated on over 240 beautiful acres, White Pines offers golfers of all skill levels an enjoyable yet challenging playing experience.

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.

XGOLF will be exhibited in Booth #1661 at the PGA Merchandise Show, to take place Jan. 24-26, 2013, in Orlando, Fla.
