SkyTrak LLC, a joint venture of SkyGolf and SportTrak, has announced that WGT Golf has completed the integration of its popular mobile golf game with the revolutionary SkyTrak Personal Launch Monitor to offer golfers everywhere the freedom to play WGT Golf with their own clubs in a stunning, high-definition virtual environment.
The WGT Golf app allows its over 14 million golfers worldwide playing WGT Golf to play the game with their own clubs and balls for the first time on iconic courses such as Kiawah Ocean Course, Bandon Dunes, Wolf Creek and many others.

The SkyTrak Launch Monitor is a complete Practice, Play and Entertainment System for golf at home. “SkyTrak accurately captures thousands of data points from a golfer hitting balls with their own clubs into a net to simulate practice and play as if you were on the course or practice tee. Now with WGT Golf, golfers can experience and test their skills on some of the world’s most famous 18-hole courses with their own clubs at their own pace.”
The WGT Golf integration includes two game modes for time and practice flexibility. _ÊThe Closest-to-the-Hole game challenges golfers with nine different approach shots that are scored in proximity to the pin on WGT’s famous courses. Or, golfers can opt for Full Stroke Play on courses around the world with the ability to select different tee boxes, course conditions, green speeds and wind conditions. Players will also have the ability to enter tournaments, challenge other golfers, improve their games and work their way up the leaderboard.
“SkyTrak delivers commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment at a price far below comparable alternatives, and provides an accurate and realistic in-home golf experience that both entertains and makes you a better golfer,” said Richard Edmonson, SkyGolf CEO. “The addition of WGT Golf to SkyTrak allows us to add more ways for golfers to practice, play and be entertained on some of the world’s most famous golf courses.”
While entertaining, SkyTrak is a serious tool that accurately reflects the golfer’s actual skill level and shot results to provide year-round practice, play and game improvement without ever leaving home. Combined with an App and iPad, the Wi-Fi enabled SkyTrak captures the actual ball speed, launch angle, back spin, side spin and side angle to project the ball flight over a vivid 3D practice range and virtual golf course. It’s easy to use, compact, totally portable with no wires required, and highly accurate, so improvements the golfer sees in their swing at home are improvements they can take to the course.
SkyTrak users also have the option to upload their practice and play data to the SkyGolf 360 cloud service for storage, analysis and sharing with friends via the new SkyGolf 360 App, and enjoy the benefits of being part of the fast-growing online community of passionate golfers via integration with popular social networks. The ability to share with friends will make the interactive platform the centerpiece of a consumer’s in-home golf practice and entertainment experience.
