Foresight Sports GCHawk Launched - This new ceiling-mounted launch monitor is said to take golf simulation to new heights
Foresight Sports GCHawk Launched
Foresight Sports, makers of leading launch monitors like the GCQuad used by Golf Monthly to test equipment as well as simulator experiences, has launched the next generation of its game-changing GC Family.
The GCHawk has been specially designed for the rapidly growing indoor simulation and entertainment driving range market.
Harnessing the same level of simulation precision and ball data accuracy as the GCQuad (below), a winner in the 2018 Golf Monthly Editor Choice and Tech 50 Awards, the sleek ceiling-mounted GCHawk fits seamlessly into a commercial, residential or driving range environment.
With its huge ball-capture range, the GCHawk allows players of both right and left handed dexterity to hit shots with confidence that performance will be precisely measured. Just like its GC2 and GCQuad predeccesors, the GCHawk captures shots from every club in the bag – from the driver to the putter – for a complete game experience.
The GCHawk is fully compatible with the latest Foresight Sports FSX 2018 simulation software, as well as the brand’s growing collection of performance and game apps. It powers one of the industry’s largest libraries of games and world-class courses – including The Links at Pebble Beach and St Andrews – all in 4K resolution.
“With the GCHawk, both right and left-handed players can hit shots without the need to move the technology, adding greater fluidity to game play,” said Edward Doling, Director of Foresight Sports Europe.
“The elevated position above the player’s head provides a new level of playing freedom, making the virtual game experience as true-to-life as possible.
“The demand for the product is simply a sign of the times. The amazing capabilities of the GCHawk and unmatched accuracy satisfies a wide range of needs from residential simulators and entertainment ranges, to fitting and instruction studios,” he added.
The new GCHawk joins the award-winning Foresight Sports technology family – the GCQuad, GC2, and GC2+HMT (Head Measurement Technology).
