Dancin’ Dogg Golf Introduces Carolina Ocean Course for OptiShot Infrared Simulator
August 9, 2012

Dancin' Dogg Golf - developer of innovative virtual golf systems - continues to expand its library of premium courses with the addition of Carolina Ocean Course, a hyper-accurate replication of the Pete and Alice Dye design set to host the year's final major championship.
Opened to great fanfare in 1991 as site of the dramatic "War by the Shore" Ryder Cup, Carolina Ocean Course perennially ranks amongst America's greatest courses. With more seaside holes than any other layout in the Northern Hemisphere, it's a true work of beauty that leaves players susceptible to stiff winds. These, combined with large slopes, numerous bunkers and challenging Bermuda grass, led Golf Digest to declare it the "toughest course in America."
"Our in-house design team laboured to capture the finest details of this remarkable and memorable American course," says Mike Smith, European Business Manager of Dancin' Dogg Golf. "From the incredible vistas to the unpredictable winds, OptiShot users can escape on a golf holiday across the pond without leaving the sitting room."
Like the company's other premium layouts - including major championship venues Atlanta Highlands, Capitol Club, Fylde Links, Old Scot and Royal St. Marks - Carolina Ocean Course can be downloaded at for a one-time fee of $49.95 (£34.99).
Allowing men, women and children to play world class courses anytime, anywhere using their own clubs, OptiShot +3 operates via a plug-and-play interface with Windows computers. Created exclusively for the European market, it comes standard with precise replicas of 14 courses. These include sites of The Players Championship ("Ponte Vedra"), as well as the 2010 U.S. Open ("Monterey Classic") and PGA Championship ("Whispering Dunes").
Featuring crystal-clear graphics and superb visual shot feedback of clubhead speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight, OptiShot +3 (MRRP £449 / €539) also affords the ability to:

  • Play full rounds with up to four players
  • Hit all shots from tee to green
  • Tune settings specific to your clubs
  • Practice shots from anywhere on any course
  • Export detailed performance statistics
  • Create multiple players and manage their settings / preferences
The OptiShot +3 system requires less than three meters of swing space. Golfers can compete and practice by hitting real balls, foam balls (provided) or no ball at all off a durable swing pad with embedded infrared sensors. In addition to Core courses that come with OptiShot +3, users can purchase premium courses, use the par-3 option, or hit balls on a realistic driving range.
