Tired of Losing Golf Balls?
This holiday season, what’s the best gift for the golfer who wants to lower their score? Or the golfer who would like to reduce the amount of time and frustration spent searching for lost balls on the golf course? RadarGolf is a brand new findable golf ball system that uses radar technology to help golfers locate lost balls and eliminate costly penalty strokes.
RadarGolf’s handheld scanner uses radar technology to locate a microchip inside a top-quality golf ball, even if it is completely hidden. The LCD display and audio beeps indicate in which direction the ball is located, beeping louder as you move closer to the ball. It has a range of about 10 metres and will pinpoint your ball to an area of about a square foot.
RadarGolf has been available since 2005 in the USA and has been getting rave reviews. It has been featured on news channels like CNN and CBS News, and has been reviewed by magazines like Golf Digest and Fairways and Greens (who called it “The Greatest Golf Invention of the 21st Century”). RadarGolf has won numerous accolades such as “Best New Ball of 2006” at the PGA Show in 2006; and BusinessWeek magazine called it “The Top Golf Product of 2005! Independent laboratory tests have rated the RadarGolf balls equal to or better than competitive balls from Titleist, Callaway, Nike and Maxfli. The ball is completely standard and conforms to all regulations, and has the same flight, distance and spin characteristics as the leading other brands.
In a demonstration day at Johannesburg Country Club, 140 golfers hit a RadarGolf ball off the tee and every single ball was found! It is one of the most frustrating and embarrassing aspects of golf: losing your ball and having to go all the way back to the tee to play again, minus 2 shots on your score.
If you’re going on holiday this December to any of the really tough courses like Gary Player, Fancourt, The Links or any of the KZN courses with their thick rough, you just have to have one of these to have a fighting chance of enjoying your round!
The system is now available to buy online (website link alongside) and from leading golf outlets, and will retail for R2699 incl VAT. The golf balls will sell for around R35 a ball, or R399 for 12.
