Azione Unlimited recently announced its partnership with GOLFZON, providing its membership with a best-in-class golf simulator solution. Awarded four consecutive years from 2017 to 2020 as best golf simulator in Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice, GOLFZON has a presence in 62 countries with 6,200 sites around the world and 59 million rounds of golf played on the GOLFZON system in 2019.
“As an avid golfer, I am absolutely ecstatic to partner with the most robust golf simulator in the world,” said Richard Glikes, President of Azione Unlimited in a statement. “Not only does Golfzon provide unparalleled features such as a moving swing plate, auto-tee system, and real-time ball flight, it is an immensely profitable system for our dealers to sell. Golfzon then becomes the perfect combination for affluent clients who want to surround themselves with the absolute best toys.”
GOLFZON’s technology and brand recognition comes from three unique technological features that brings “realism” to the golf simulator world in homes and places of business where no other simulator companies can offer. GOLFZON lets the client play from tee through green all on the same hitting platform, giving the player the ability to putt from distances as short as 2 inches and doing away with automatic two-putt, or lengthy gimmie ranges that is synonymous with simulated golf. GOLFZON’s omnidirectional Hydraulic Swing Plate will navigate players through the golf course by creating uphill, downhill and side hill lies of all varieties to seamlessly blend the virtual course with the real-life terrain of the location.
GOLFZON’s social connectivity with its mobile OS applications gives customers the ability to share and compare swing videos of their best shots, review and compare club analytics and scorecards between friends. These online features allow clients and customers to have an experience beyond the boundaries of virtual golf. These three unique technological feats have played a role in earning GOLFZON the honor of Golf Digest’s Editor’s Choice award for Best Golf Simulator for four consecutive years, the most recent being 2020.
“A large and growing residential market is supported by over a dozen Golfzon dealers and distributors across North America, while our contributions to the commercial space have driven our organization’s rapid ascent,” said Tommy Lim, CEO of GOLFZON America in a statement. “Just in the calendar year of 2019 we saw an increase in commercial saturation of over 115%. We hope to carry this momentum forward with Azione Unlimited members.”
GOLFZON also conducts the world’s first simulation golf tournament, called the G-Tour, with total prize money of more than $2.7 million. Proving the reliability and quality of GOLFZON’s state-of-the-art technology, the Men’s and Women’s G-Tour Championships are broadcast live in Korea. This success is based on a connection to the global community and the highly accurate sensor technology. GOLFZON Live Festival (GLF) is a unique online product that allows all GOLFZON users worldwide the opportunity to participate in the global simulator tournament. In addition, GOLFZON’s cutting-edge sensor technology is internationally recognized so much that GOLFZON VISION and GOLFZON DRIVING RANGE (GDR) systems have been selected as the official training systems of the National Golf Teams of Korea, China, Taiwan and Spain.
“The golf simulator market has undergone a remarkable growth transformation in the four years since our company’s arrival to the US,” said Lim. “We are proud to be a major contributor to this upward trend which has been a part of our business doubling year over year.”
GOLFZON America is committed to the game of golf and its growth in the United States. As partners, GOLFZON America has installed a GOLFZON simulator at the World Golf Hall of Fame in St. Augustine, Florida, as well as set one up at The USGA Headquarters in Far Hills, NJ. GOLFZON America is also a proud partner of the LPGA Tour, Mass Golf, and The Metropolitan Golf Association. GOLFZON America plans are to continue growing the circle of influence within the golfing community by expanding partnerships with other like-minded and similarly positioned organizations across the country.
