Toptracer at Spawell Golf academy is on a mission to connect communities on a global scale and provide a real-time platform for golfers to showcase their range skills. Toptracer Range has designed an entirely skills-based competition featuring a nine-shot challenge that tests shot-making ability between 55 and 160 yards.

The first-ever challenge is on this weekend and run until Sunday 8th December at 11:59pm (local time) at more than 200 Toptracer Ranges around the world.  Scoring is based on each player’s proximity to the hole on each of their nine shots. Golfers can view their real-time rankings against participants from Toptracer Range locations around the world.

“Growing up, this type of competition would have been unheard of, but Toptracer Range technology makes this global challenge possible,” said Ben Sharpe, President of Toptracer Global. “Topgolf Entertainment Group is committed to connecting people and communities through the shot-tracing technology and enhanced driving range experiences we provide. We believe this sort of competition will evolve into more meaningful and larger events that will continue to grow the game of golf and connect people on a much larger scale.”

To enhance local pride and competition, each contestant will see their local corresponding Toptracer Range name and country flag next to their profile name on the interactive global leaderboard.

The competition is free to enter*, guests can then play individually or in groups of up to four as many times as desired until the tournament ends on Sunday 8th December at 11:59pm.

After completion of the global competition, the nine-shot challenge will be made available as a new game mode at Toptracer Ranges in the first quarter of 2020.

So get down to the Spawell this weekend and let’s get Ireland on that leaderboard!

*Entry Information – This competition is a ‘game mode’ that is free to enter for any customers that have purchased a session in one of our hitting bays. To submit a score, guests must sign in and link their profile to the in-bay monitor at the start of the session.
