The technology allows golfers of all abilities the chance to play different courses and different games like longest drive and nearest the pin.
The Virtual Golf feature is a great way for beginners to play a single hole, the front 9, back 9, or all 18 holes in a fun environment.
It is the same shot-tracing tech seen on TV screens around the world on the PGA and European Tours.
It measures golfers’ shot distance, ball speed, launch angle and height.
St Andrews’ Old Course joins the portfolio that includes 2019 US Open venue Pebble Beach as well as European Tour venue Bro Hoff Slott in Sweden.
In addition, the 11th hole at the Old Course at St Andrews will be the new marquee hole in the ‘Closest to Pin’ mode.
