Golf Simulator Facility open in Mission Viejo
Mission Viejo, CA – Ultimate HD Golf (UHDG) is opening its first indoor golf simulator facility at LA Fitness in Mission Viejo on Alicia Parkway. Four high definition golf simulators will provide a unique, exciting golf and entertainment option to LA Fitness members as well as non-members.
Two-time Master’s Winner Bubba Watson says, “HD Golf is the most realistic simulator I have ever seen.”
Ultimate HD Golf is the brainchild of Herb Meistrich, founder of the TaylorMade Performance Labs. With Ultimate HD Golf, you can play 18 holes, practice or just enjoy playing golf in a comfortable indoor setting. Play iconic courses like Pebble Beach, Torrey Pines or St. Andrews, day or night, for a fraction of the cost of a round of outdoor golf. Ultimate HD Golf uses over 55,000 High Definition photographs to create a realistic and fun experience.
An 18-hole round takes about only an hour for a single golfer to complete. In addition to providing an outlet for current golfers. Ultimate HD Golf’s mission is to deliver an experience that will bring golfers back to the game and create an environment where new players, especially millennials and children, can experience the benefits and enjoyment of golf in a friendly, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Even if you’ve never picked up a club, this is the perfect opportunity to try playing golf. Beginners will not be harassed by more advanced golfers demanding that they hurry up; and they will not have to pay the steep green fees or buy expensive equipment just to get in a quick round. It’s also a great option for disabled golfers who may have problems walking the several miles it takes to complete a course.
Whether you play 18 holes or practice on the range, a computer will track all your statistics and store them in the cloud. A state of the art launch monitor captures your swing and the computer coordinates the data, including launch angle, ball speed, head speed, angle of attack with a GPS system that tracks the direction of the ball and how far it would have traveled on the actual course. You can play in leagues or tournaments. You and your friends can play closest to the pin or long drive contests or play a particular hole as often as you like.
Meistrich relates, “In adding golf as an additional amenity to the Mission Viejo – Alicia Parkway LA Fitness club, Ultimate HD Golf is attempting to energize and reinvigorate golf as a sport and to hopefully make it more accessible and affordable to a wider group of people. Our indoor environment, using realistic high-definition images, cuts the cost and, most importantly, enables a single player to complete a round of golf in approximately one hour.”
LA Fitness is happy to be bringing this exciting amenity to its membership.
“We are very pleased to add the services that Ultimate HD Golf provides to our Mission Viejo – Alicia Parkway club. As a leading health club chain, we pride ourselves on continually exploring new avenues to deliver additional value to our members, including bringing in innovative amenities like those offered by Ultimate HD Golf,” said Bill Horner, Chief Real Estate Officer for LA Fitness.
While this is a great venue for golfers to hone their skill or just get in a little golf when pressed for time, it’s also a great opportunity for new players to try the game in a friendly, low-pressure environment and the perfect way for parents to introduce their kids to the sport. In addition to golf, the simulators can be used to play video games using Kinect or Xbox on the GIANT 11-foot by 15 foot screen. The gaming systems are available as are the most popular games – or even bring your own!
