Golf Simulators – Visual Sports

Golf simulators have become popular partly due to the fact golf for many people takes too long. Although City Links used Full Swing Golf Simulators, today we’re taking a look at a hot new company called Visual Sports who provide not only golf simulators, but other sports simulators.

Visual Sports Systems interactive golf simulators provide the ultimate indoor golf experience. Visual Sports Systems combines industry leading SwingTrack Club™ swing analysis with SwingTrack Flight™ high-speed tracking cameras to provide you with unparalleled club analysis and ball flight data.

These golf simulators use powerful E6 golf software that allows you to compete or practice on over 85 of the world’s most famous golf courses. Each course is computer generated using real-world GPS data, and beautifully rendered to provide you with the ultimate in game experience. This is the same software used on Full Swing Golf simulators.

Visual Sports has been developing and implementing immersive golf simulators and
sports entertainment solutions for business, training facilties, professional
athletes, sports organizations, and the homes of golf, sports and entertainment
enthusiasts. A leading provider of golf simulators and sport simulators for play,
training, game enhancement, and overall, lots of fun, Visual Sports is built on
a foundation of trust, integrity, technology and outstanding service.

For the most realistic simulation possible, E6 software utilizes the most detailed, accurate high-res GPS terrain data and imaging. And play your favourite courses under sunny skies or watch a rain shower roll in. Weather settings can even be randomized to add a new dimension to each round. And wind and weather adjustments directly affect the ball flight, just like in the real world.

The new SwingTrack Club™ camera system is built on years of rock solid research and development from the Visual Sports product innovation labs. Unlike traditional swing analysis technology on the market today, the SwingTrack Club™ doesn’t just interpret what happened, it showcases it, instantly. In real-time. This is an integral part of these golf simulators.

The advanced high-speed HD camera records and displays real-time captures of your shot data including, club path, club face angle as well as point of impact. The on-screen interface instantly presents a comprehensive overview of all the relevant shot data, swing after swing.

The SwingTrack Flight™ camera system is designed to give you the most accurate ball flight analysis available. The SwingTrack Flight™ system uses four high-speed cameras to capture ball speed, trajectory, angle and flight path. The SwingTrack Flight™ cameras captures ball flight data at the incredible rate of 2000 frames per second.

The combination of ourSwingTrack Flight™ camera system and the SwingTrack Club™ camera provides you with a full analysis of each shot and allows for a more realistic golf simulators experience.

Driving Range Hong Kong

If you’re looking for a driving range Hong Kong, the choices are getting less and less as Hong Kong’s driving ranges seem to keep closing down. The latest casualty is Nine Eagles Golf Course out by the airport, which although not a driving range Hong Kong in the true sense of the word, was a place you could go and practice. It had one of the best short game areas out of any driving range Hong Kong but is now permamently closed, making way for a shopping mall. Thank god for that since Hong Kong is really short on shopping malls?

So where do you practice at a driving range Hong Kong similar to City Links Golf Lounge? There’s quite a few indoor golf centers in Hong Kong that have opened up and with the weather the way it is now, who wants to go outside and spend a few hours practicing at a driving range Hong Kong and get totally covered in sweat? The indoor driving range Hong Kong model is becoming increasingly popular and if you want to find out about all the best driving range Hong Kong that you can play without sweating, please head over to, send them an email, and they’ll get back to you with some options.

How was City Links Golf Lounge a driving range Hong Kong when it was inside? Well City Links Golf Lounge had a Full Swing Golf Simulator. On the simulator you can play over 65 different golf courses including famous courses such as Pebble Beach, St Andrews, Valderamma, Bay Hill, Torrey Pines and more. But these golf simulators also had a driving range hong kong mode, you could set targets, make the range as big or small as you like, and the golf simulator would give you statistics such as distance hit, launch angle and if your ball went right or left. Admittedly, the technology wasn’t that good that it could accurately pick up draws and fades, although hit a big slice and it would definitely show up as a big banana on the screen!

Hitting off mats at any driving range Hong Kong isn’t that much fun, but at least if you’re indoors, it’s better than nothing. So to some extent, City Links Golf Lounge was a driving range Hong Kong that felt quite realistic, at least for full shots. The golf simulators also had a short game green where you could pitch and putt, but the short game on a golf simulator is definitely the most unrealistic experience since you simply can’t rely on feel or touch and as mentioned above, it’s impossible to recreate different lies when you’re hitting of exactly the same spot for every single shot.

Again, if you can overcome this slight issue, using a golf simulator to be your driving range Hong Kong is not all that bad.

Indoor Golf Hong Kong

Indoor Golf Hong Kong might just be the best way to play golf in Hong Kong as for the last several months it seems it’s either hosing down with rain or sweltering hot. Those playing Indoor Golf Hong Kong can avoid all elements of the weather and use either the driving range mode of the golf simulator, or the playing mode, depending on what Indoor Golf Hong Kong center you are at. There’s not too many places that offer Indoor Golf Hong Kong but if you’ve never tried, we recommend you give it a try.

Indoor Golf Hong Kong can be very rewarding, especially if the indoor golf simulator the center uses is reliable. A few centers that offer Indoor Golf Hong Kong use Full Swing Golf Simulators and some others use Golfzon simulators, from Korea. Both are very good but it’s technology so things can go wrong. You’re swinging inside and this can make a difference to some people. ONe thing we can say is that the golf courses in game play mode are mapped to within inches and I know at City Links we had some people who were actually members of some of the courses that were available on the City Links Golf simulators, and they said they hit it in the same places on teh simulator as they did in real life!

Not all Indoor Golf Hong Kong centers are probably like this though. Anyway, on those two simulators you can play many golf courses or just practice. They also have Closest To The Pin Modes, and Long Drive modes so you should never get bored playing Indoor Golf Hong Kong as there are over 70 different golf courses to choose from. If practicing is your thing, Full Swing Golf can be somewhat accurate, but picking up draws and fades is not that realistic and as mentioned, this is technology and even the best products can go wrong. (Ever hit a drive 489 yards?)

A good thing about Indoor Golf Hong Kong is that you can sit down between shots, most of the golf simulator centers have chairs or couches you can sit on so many pepple play Indoor Golf Hong Kong for the social aspect, they go along, have a few drinks, a chat, maybe bust a few moves on your new lady friend or man friend, and hit some balls. If you’re playing golf ourtside on a real course, sometimes you might not see the other person unless you’re on the tee or green, especially if you hit it sideways like me all the time!

So where can you play Indoor Golf Hong Kong? Please contact us and we’ll be happy to give you the next best place to play Indoor Golf Hong Kong since City Links is closed.

City Links Golf Hong Kong Update

A lot of people are still contacting us regarding the state of City Links Golf Hong Kong. For those who don’t know, City Links Golf Hong Kong is now closed. After three years, we had a lot of great times including a Corporate golf league in Hong Kong featuring some of the biggest brands in the world, an Anniversary party that people are still talking about, and a Lingerie show that some say was the highlight of their golfing lives!

In case you want to know the reason for City Links Golf Hong Kong closing, well despite our best efforts, City Links Golf Hong Kong met the same fate that many SME’s have faced – a massively unreasonably rent increase that we just couldn’t swallow.
