BOYNE Golf: TrackMan Range Comes To The Highlands
Harbor Springs, Mich. - BOYNE Golf announces the addition of the all new TrackMan Range to the Ross Golf Center at The Highlands, the premier 72-hole destination in Northern Michigan. This new technology will have a soft opening on Friday, May 7, followed by its official Grand Opening event on Saturday, May 29.
The Highlands is the first Northern Michigan resort to offer the new range technology. The powerful and connected 30-bay TrackMan setup enables golfers of all skill levels to practice distance control, shot-shaping and more, using tour-proven swing, ball-flight tracking, analysis and entertainment technology. When using the free TrackMan Range app, golfers will have instant access to eight essential data points including carry yardage, total yardage, ball speed, trajectory height, launch angle, launch direction and more.
TrackMan Range also allows golfers to play quick, fun, and challenging games such as Bulls Eye, Hit It, and Capture the Flag - either alone or with friends. They can also play a full virtual round on some of the world’s best and most historic courses, including five of BOYNE Golf’s championship-caliber courses: Bay Harbor Golf Club’s three routings, The Highlands’ The Heather and Arthur Hills while they’re hitting real balls at physical targets. The graphics are hyper-real and accurate. Guests can also host tournaments with live leaderboards or invite sponsors, colleagues and clients for great branding, teambuilding and social engagement.
“TrackMan Range will provide another fun resource for our members and guests to play golf - it takes the range experience to quite another level for all ability levels,” says Josh Richter, Director of Golf at Boyne Resorts. “Those looking to improve their game will find this opportunity by utilizing the provided data points that a standard range does not offer. TrackMan Range can also be an exciting way to introduce golf to new golfers, as well as an alternative way for novices to come have fun as they learn and improve. Altogether we feel this will be an excellent addition to the amenities of the resort as well as the BOYNE Golf Academy.”
The TrackMan range app is available for both Apple and Android devices. A season pass to the Ross Golf Center TrackMan Range costs $600, an unlimited day pass for $100 or a 60-ball bucket pass runs $25 and all pricing is per person. The connected bays are available on a first-come, first-served basis, but can be reserved in advance for groups of eight or more. For more information visit here.
