I would like to congratulate my client Tim Vale of Guilford, CT for receiving a patent on his Golf Game System. The patent can be seen here.
The invention is a golf game system comprising: a golf simulator, the golf simulator comprising a plurality of virtual tee boxes adjacent to or on a virtual fairway; an outdoor shortened golf hole programmed into the golf simulator located on or near the outdoor shortened golf hole, the outdoor golf hole comprising: fairway landing area; rough landing areas; an approach area adjacent to the fairway landing area; a green adjacent to the approach area; a cup in the green; a plurality of mats located on the landing areas; where the golf simulator is configured to allow a player simulate a drive of a golf ball out of a simulated tee box onto the landing area, and the golf simulator calculates where on the landing area the ball should be placed after the drive, and the golf simulator informs the player where to place the ball on the landing area. In addition it is a golf game system that assigns a precisely matched tee locations based on golfer swing data and is not limited to a select number of predetermined tee boxes. It is also a golf system that allows a player to play the golf course with modified golf ball speed, golf ball side spin and golf swing path to better match a golfer’s skill level to the golf course being played on and/or a golfer’s playing partners.
