The installation furthers Golfzon and Troon’s strategic partnership, announced in 2021, wherein Troon is investing with Golfzon as it aggressively rolls out its ZSTRICT indoor golf entertainment facilities. Golfzon and Troon share a culture of infectious energy and a passion for providing clients and employees unique experiences.
“Troon has been a great partner so it only made sense that we install the first TwoVision in North America in one of their key regional offices,” says Tommy Lim, CEO of Golfzon America. “Off-course play continues to be one of the leading trends in golf. Through this showroom, we’re able to provide the perfect atmosphere to share why TwoVision is ideal for clubs, resorts, academies, and entertainment venues like bars and restaurants.”
“Golfzon is unquestionably the leader in the simulator category and having their new flagship TwoVision model in our Northern Virginia location will further boost office culture and fulfill our mission to deliver memorable experiences that cultivate lasting connections,” says Troon Executive Vice President, Alex Elmore. “We’re excited to take this step and look forward to making more joint announcements with Golfzon in the near future.”
Golfzon has established its well-respected global reputation thanks to incredible technology and an ability for golfers to compete against one another from all over the world. The new TwoVision supports network play for tournaments / leagues and allows an unlimited number of live users to compete. There are a variety of game modes and a course library of more than 190+ courses. The user experience is further complemented by the newly renovated Golfzon app that tracks scores, provides swing replays and more.
The system’s innovative features make TwoVision the perfect option for entrepreneurs looking to capitalize on golf’s current popularity. According to the National Golf Foundation, off-course facilities drew more than 12 million golfers in 2020, a trend that is continuing to grow as more new players are exposed to the game. Part of this explosion in participation is due to bars, restaurants and specialty facilities investing in simulators as a stress-free, fun and beneficial way for golfers of all abilities to experience the sport in a comfortable environment.
