Vancouver, BC, February 10, 2011 -- Links Golf Café, the world’s first eatertainment franchise that blends the fun, social and practical aspects of cutting edge indoor golf and internet technologies with the latest advances in fast casual dining, is coming to Vancouver. The café will feature four state-of-the-art PGA TOUR simulators that provide the most realistic golf simulator experience in the world. Golf enthusiasts will be able to play over 50 world-famous courses, including the exclusive TPC (Tournament Players Club) courses of the PGA TOUR® or simply practice every club in their bag on the driving range with visual, real-time and amazingly accurate performance feedback on each and every shot.
If there was ever any doubt that golfers are fanatical about their sport, witness an amazing trend that golfers in South Korea have started. In 2003, South Korea, a country with an estimated population of just under 49 million, had 300 virtual golf cafes up and running. Today, there are over 5,000 virtual golf cafes catering to over 200,000 golfers a day. This trend has not been lost on the folks from Links Golf Café in their quest to bring North America’s first virtual golf café to Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
With LinksPlay?, the proprietary, internet-based system that connects each golf simulator in each Links Golf Café into an interactive player network, a performance database is automatically and continuously capturing data for the player after each and every shot, regardless of where they play in the network. The player can instantly see if they’re hitting the ball straighter, longer and more accurately by club and over time, providing the golfer unparalleled insight into performance trends for continuous improvement (patent pending). As more and more Links Golf Cafés are built around the world, LinksPlay? will make it possible to play a round of virtual golf with a buddy in a different city, and for virtual tournaments - picture "Pebble Beach Tuesdays" where every simulator in every Café could be set the exact same way and golfers from all over the world could compete for the prize!
Links Golf Café™ Vancouver is not only a unique golf entertainment venue for players and spectators alike, it is also a unique golf-themed dining experience with a world-class menu designed to be deliciously satisfying morning, day or night. With the latest innovations in fast-casual dining, their made-to-order menus are not only distinctly fresh, but conveniently fast. Vancouver golfers will look forward to sneaking in 9 holes on Pebble Beach before work with a hot Huevos Rancheros Breakfast Sandwich and a custom-roasted coffee. Players will be able to exercise their game on the driving range over lunch with a Thai Chicken Salad and a Bermuda Greens Smoothie. Host a private tournament between your buddies on TPC Sawgrass after work with a Chip and Dip Platter and bucket of local micro brews. Or just order some great food and drink, sit back and enjoy the interactive play, social vibe and free WiFi access in the café.
With 15 Links Golf Café franchises already awarded across Canada, the buzz about Links Golf Café is definitely catching on. "We’re very excited to have the first franchise and flagship location right here in Vancouver," says Darrell Ross, director of Links Golf Café BC.
