Nicklaus Design Features State-of-the-Art Yardage System on Carts
(SUNLAND, Calif.) – To greatly enhance golfers’ experiences, Angeles National Golf Club now features the ProLink Global Positioning Satellite ("GPS") system used at many of the world’s most famous golf courses.
The upscale, state-of-the-art ProLink GPS boasts a high-resolution, color monitor neatly affixed to each golf cart. It displays pinpoint-accurate distances to the hole, as well as vibrant and easy-to-understand graphics of fairways and greens’ hazards and contours. Better navigating the course and taking guesswork out of the game aids golfers’ shot selections and, in turn, speeds pace of play at Angeles National Golf Club. Other features include ordering food and beverage at the touch of a button while on the course, as well as personal scoring and tournament leaderboards.
"We are excited to engage with ProLink and to feature its state-of-the-art, user-friendly amenity that augments the red-carpet treatment we provide to golfers," says Vic Castro, director of marketing, tournaments and special events. "No longer do out customers have to labor over finding sprinkler heads to mark yardage and be rushed into a bad shot. ProLink makes it easy."
Angeles National is the first Nicklaus Design course in Los Angeles County, and was named one of the Top 10 courses in the U.S. and Top 30 courses in the world in 2004 by T+L Golf magazine. Nestled at the base of the Angeles National Forest, the course is a thoughtful, playable blend of modern desert architecture and traditional design principles.
"Angeles National has an outstanding reputation among local and traveling golfers, and ProLink is excited to add it to our growing list of trusted partners," says Lawrence Bain, President and CEO of ProLink Solutions. "We look forward to the course experiencing enhanced customer service and higher sales through ProLink."
In addition to game-improvement and enjoyment features for golfers, ProLink has become a necessary marketing and management tool for courses like Angeles National to quickly realize revenue increases and bottom-line savings.
