At XGolf Scottsdale, six cutting-edge XGolf simulators immerse golfers in a realistic replication of world-famous courses using accurate video analysis, high-definition graphics, and a 5.1 channel sound system. In the new 4,000-square-foot facility, golfers can play a round at a choice of over 150 world-famous courses, including Pebble Beach, St. Andrews, and Spyglass without having to put up with the exorbitant expense and secret handshakes needed to enter the courses. The simulator floor tilts to create uphill, downhill, and side-hill lies to reflect the player’s ball location on the course, balls are automatically teed up after each shot, and two video cameras play back swings for later review, a concept that comes from XGolf, which operates golf centers around the world. With the available video playback, the simulator doubles as a teaching mechanism for Scottsdale Golf Place’s class-A PGA and LPGA instructors, who use it to review a swing’s club path, ball-launch angle, and follow-through pirouettes. And if it feels like the floor is shifting beneath you – it may not just be the moving platform beneath your feet. Players can opt for beer and wine during play, and groups can enjoy simulators together during weekly leagues, tournaments, and corporate events.
