Mistwood Golf Dome – First U.S. Indoor Golf Facility to Install Toptracer Range Technology
Bolingbrook, IL – Mistwood Golf Dome, (Formally McQ's) the top indoor golf facility in the Chicago area, has installed the new Toptracer Range technology by Toptracer. It's the first installation in the country for this transformative entertainment technology at an indoor golf dome facility.
"We are extremely excited to bring the Toptracer technology to the Mistwood Golf Dome transforming our indoor dome driving range experience to a fun and virtual environment that will precisely track players shots as if they were outside on interactive screens and provide fun gaming applications for both golfers and non-golfers," Dan Bradley, Mistwood general manager, said.
"This is the first of its kind in Chicago as well as the country for an indoor dome and we look forward to bringing this innovation and fun entertainment experience for the next generation of golfers as well as attract new players to the game."
The Mistwood Golf Dome opened under its new name this past week to rave reviews with Toptracer Range. The dome has been under the umbrella of Mistwood Golf Club and owner Jim McWethy since 2012, who has created one of the premier golf and entertainment experiences in Chicago with both facilities.
"We have created one of the strongest golf brands in Chicago with all of our recent upgrades, renovations, and awards with Mistwood Golf Club", said Bradley. "Since acquiring McQ's and having been operating it under our Mistwood umbrella, it only made sense to change the name and continue providing the same high-level golf experience our customers expect at a Mistwood facility."
The 60,000 square-foot facility has been transformed into an innovative and dynamic golf range center where golfers and non-golfers alike will improve and enjoy games utilizing the Toptracer Range technology.
Toptracer Range is revolutionizing the driving range experience, and at the Mistwood Golf Dome it will be part of the scene that also includes casual lounge seating, TVs, and premier food and beverage service via the attached McWethy's Sports Bar.
Golfers looking to improve their game and seeking instant feedback from shots are loving the Toptracer technology, which shows the flight path of the golf ball with valuable shot data such as distance (carry and total), ball speed, launch angle, height, and more.
At Mistwood Golf Dome players of all skill levels will be able to compete against friends and family in fun skill games, and also play virtual golf on simulated courses including Pebble Beach and other iconic layouts with other players from around world live in approximately 500 bays at other golf facilities.
Toptracer is transforming the game of golf on the range, on the course, on television and even in major sports stadiums. The dynamic technology tracks the flight of a golf ball, displays its path in video and analyzes every shot hit. Topgolf has licensed Toptracer Range to driving ranges and tournament directors for a more interactive golf experience. Toptracer Range is being installed in a growing number of driving ranges around the world. Additionally, Toptracer continues to enrich the experience of watching golf on TV during some of the biggest tournaments in the world, including The Open Championship and Ryder Cup.
