High Definition Golf Simulator installed at Canadian car dealership

Customers of a Lexus car dealership are getting the white-glove treatment. Rather than waiting idly by while their car gets serviced, clients are now able to practice and play golf on a High Definition Golf™ Simulator.

"We wanted to give our customers that 'wow' experience," says dealership owner Jim Jiwani. "Now they can look forward to coming in for servicing or even checking out the new models." Located in Edmonton, Alberta, the Lexus dealership is the largest in Canada.

Installed a couple months ago, Jiwani says car owners are already booking appointments on the simulator. "They bring in their clubs and play 8 or 9 holes while waiting for their car to be serviced," says Jiwani. This summer he is planning on offering client's golf clinics with local pros.

In addition to clients, the simulator has become a perk for employees. "Our staff use it after work and we have been holding mini-tournaments. It helps keep them motivated," says Jiwani.

"Having this type of amenity really helps set a dealership apart. Besides driving customer loyalty, it helps build buzz in the community," says Todd Richardson, President and CEO of HD Golf™. He says several other dealerships are currently looking at installing a simulator.

HD Golf™ has also been featured recently at several luxury car events, including the grand opening of a BMW dealership, at a private Lamborghini owner event and at Mercedes-Benz' worldwide customer golf championship. "Golf is a leading pastime of the affluent, thus HD Golf is the perfect amenity for luxury car events," says Richardson.
