Golfers to Benefit from New ProLink Solutions GPS at ChampionsGate Golf Club
February 22, 2006. ProLink Solutions, a majority-owned subsidiary of ProLink Holdings, Corp and the world’s leading provider of Global Positioning Satellite (“GPS”) systems to golf courses, today announces ChampionsGate Golf Club (Orlando, Fla.) now features the ProLink Solutions Global Positioning Satellite (“GPS”) system used at many of the world’s most famous golf courses.
The upscale, state-of-the-art ProLink GPS boasts a high-resolution, color monitor neatly affixed to each golf cart. It displays pinpoint-accurate distances to the hole, as well as vibrant and easy-to-understand graphics of fairways and greens’ hazards and contours. Better navigating the course and taking guesswork out of the game aids golfers’ shot selections and, in turn, speeds pace of play at ChampionsGate. Other features include ordering food and beverage at the touch of a button while on the course, as well as personal scoring and tournament leaderboards.
“Both courses at ChampionsGate are challenging enough without having to guess distances to hazards, course features and pin placements,” says Ryan Thomas, Head Golf Professional at ChampionsGate. “The ProLink GPS system enhances our customer experience, improves golfers’ scores and streamlines our operations.”
ChampionsGate Golf Club is home to two unique 18-hole championship golf courses designed by accomplished architect and professional golfer, Greg Norman. This beautiful resort offers an un-matched golf facility and is regarded as one of the top courses not only in Florida, but in the U.S. Also featuring an impressive clubhouse, restaurant and banquet facility, ChampionsGate has garnered an enviable reputation for its accomplished, attentive and professional staff. Located just 15 minutes from Walt Disney World and Universal Studios, ChampionsGate also plays host to the World Points Father/Son Challenge and remains in tournament-playing condition year round.
“ChampionsGate is a world-class facility in one of the world’s most popular golf destinations, and we are excited to add a course of its reputation to our growing list of trusted partners,” says Lawrence Bain, President and CEO of ProLink Solutions.
In addition to game-improvement and enjoyment features for golfers, ProLink has become a necessary marketing and management tool for courses like ChampionsGate to quickly realize revenue increases and bottom-line savings.
