FEATURES SoCal GOLF INSIDER ness here is still in its infancy com- pared to the Korean market," said Joe Beditz, President and CEO of the National Golf Foundation. Ultimate HD Golf plans to change that. Joining forces with LA Fitness, Ul- timate HD Golf installed four incred- ibly realistic high-definition golf simulators at the Mission Viejo site that provide a unique, exciting golf and entertainment option. An LA Fitness membership is not required to play, and it takes about an hour for a single golfer to com- plete an 18-hole round. u ltimate HD Golf has made an impression on at least one big name in the game. "HD Golf is the most realistic sim- ulator I have ever seen," said two- time Masters winner Bubba Watson. In addition to providing an outlet for current golfers, Ultimate HD Golf's mission is to deliver an expe- rience that will bring golfers back to the game and create an environment where new players, especially mil- lennials and children, can experience the benefits and enjoyment of golf in a friendly, comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Southern Californian Christine Daughton who had never played golf before said, "I think this experi- ence is great. I'd never tried golf be- fore and I didn't feel like there'd be any pressure here. There are no peo- ple watching me, so I said I'll give it a shot! I want to try it some more." Whether you play 18 holes or practice on the range, state-of-the-art launch monitors capture your swing and coordinate the data, including launch angle, ball speed, head speed, etc. Simultaneously, GPS tracks the direction of the ball and how far it travels. Computers track all your sta- tistics and save them in your virtual "Locker." Another great aspect of Ultimate HD Golf is that you can play in or create your own leagues or tourna- ments and compete with your friends in closest-to-the-pin or long- drive contests. There are also games such as Breaking Windows, where you try and smash the glass frames on the front of a building. Not only is it fun, but it helps you work on your aim, alignment and trajectory. Kids games are available, too, that include putting into dog houses. F or players who don't have their own clubs, premium Bridgestone balls and Bridgestone and Tour Edge clubs are available to use for free. Whether you want to work on your game or spend time with fam- ily and friends, there are dozens of ways to make use of Ultimate HD Golf. Quite a few LA Fitness members have already done just that. uLTIMATE HD GOLF OFFER!
