With every swing, you’re given a real-time analysis of every shot (including speed, velocity, spin, trajectory, etc.) as the balls’ flight is played back on the bay’s largescreen monitor. Fun makes perfect, at least that’s what we believe. Whether you are a PGA Pro or picking up a club for the first time, our games are designed to allow players of all skill levels to have fun and have a chance to win. Whether you’re flying solo or with a group of friends, you’ll find it hard to put the club down.
