Hi tech in golf carts

Central Otago Mirror - - FEATURES -

Golf­ing at Millbrook has had a hi tech-up­grade with the in­tro­duc­tion of a cloud-cased GPS sys­tem aimed at en­hanc­ing the game and pro­vid­ing safety fea­tures for man­age­ment.

The Golf Pi­lot sys­tem, cre­ated by GPS Sys­tems In­ter­na­tional, was re­cently in­stalled in the re­sort’s fleet of 50 golf carts, and while track­ing each cart, links each one to the re­sort’s Pro Shop.

The sys­tem high­lights no-go ar­eas, shows pro­tips on how best to play the hole and play­ers can mea­sure the dis­tance to any point of in­ter­est in­clud­ing bunkers and the pin on the green.

Millbrook Re­sort head of golf Brian Spicer said the sys­tem was an ex­cit­ing de­vel­op­ment.

‘‘We’re al­ways look­ing at cre­ative ways of be­ing in­no­va­tive and Golf Pi­lot is a great sys­tem that takes Millbrook to an­other level tech­nol­ogy wise.’
