OptiShot Golf Announces its Replica Course of the 2015 PGA Championship, Whispering Dunes

13 Aug 2015

TRAVERSE CITY, MI – August 13, 2015OptiShot® Golf, makers of the world’s #1 golf simulator, announces its To-the-Tee™ replicated course, Whispering Dunes. The Whispering Dunes is the legendary, Whistling Straits, PGA Championship course flawlessly reproduced. Whistling Straits was built for drama, and it has delivered.

The majestic links-style golf course, designed by Pete Dye and built by the Kohler Co. on two miles of uninterrupted Lake Michigan shoreline, has produced a pair of memorable finishes in the season’s final major championship. The genius of the course design is that it doesn’t favor a particular style of play, which brings more golfers in the field of 156 into the equation and tightens the scoring. As a result, there is a smaller chance of a runaway victory and a greater chance of a bunched leader board. The PGA Championship and OptiShot2 users begin play on August 13-16, 2015.

Golfers from around the world can compete against each other on any of the 43 To-the-Tee™ exclusive and private championship course replicas in the OptiShot Golf Course library. Each course provides a realistic and fully-immersive 3D environment for play or practice. With OptiShot2, users have the ability to play the same championship holes the top PGA pros are playing on TV, as well as compete in a tournament of their own with OptiShot Live.

With the new OptiShot Live feature, users can play 18 holes on the world’s most famous courses with friends, family and competitors all over the world without ever leaving the comfort of their home or office. This award-winning golf simulator uses the latest in analytic and shot tracer technology with an easy to use interface to create the ultimate real-world golf experience. Compact in size and cost, the OptiShot2 requires no elaborate setup, works with every club in your bag and is compatible with Mac and Windows.
