About Topgolf Toptracer Range
The company was founded in 2006 with the goal to enrich the experience of watching golf on TV. By developing a unique software capable of tracking the flight of a golf ball in a camera feed, and adding graphics to make this visible on screen, Toptracer has achieved this. Several of the world’s largest broadcasting companies expressed interest, and soon Toptracer was being featured in TV coverage from the biggest golf tournaments in the world, such as The Open Championship and the Ryder Cup.
In 2012 we launched our first prototype of Toptracer Range. A system utilizing the original Toptracer TV technology to track and analyze every shot hit on a driving range. It makes golfers’ practice sessions more rewarding, but more importantly makes it a lot more fun to go to the driving range.
If we can help people all over the world enjoy the wonderful game of golf even more with our small contributions in TV and driving range technology, our mission is fulfilled.
