FlyingTee Launches FLITE to drive growth in the Golf Entertainment Industry
Entertainment innovator FlyingTee (www.flyingteegolf.com) announced today the launch of FLITE (www.flite.golf) to formally offer technology products and services designed to enable third parties to build and operate their own golf entertainment venues.
“Since we opened FlyingTee in Jenks, OK, we have been fortunate to have the opportunity to speak and meet with multiple prospective partners interested in building, owning and operating their own flavor of the FlyingTee experience. With FLITE, we offer a turn-key solution for select partners to bring this concept to their home markets,” said James Vollbrecht, Founding Partner of FlyingTee and President of FLITE.
“Our goal is to create a network of “Powered by FLITE” facilities, both domestically and internationally. The software and hardware package currently being used by FlyingTee has stood the test of 18 months of operations, served over 400,000 guests and tracked over 7 million golf shots.
Rain or shine, sub-zero or 100+ degree days, we know it works because we use it every day. As we grow into national and international markets, we will continue to invest in the software and hardware, and FLITE partners will receive all the benefits of that on-going work,” said Jeremy Carver, Director of Engineering for FLITE. Jeremy continued, “We look forward to working with our partners to create new and exciting games, instructional applications, and other fun activities for the network of FLITE powered facilities.”
FLITE’s patented, self-scoring and immersive technology rewards and challenges players, regardless of golf skill or experience. From players with a zero handicap to those with zero golf experience, the software unlocks the core social and athletic experience that seasoned golfers know and love. The core technology can be focused on a more traditional “golf-centric” facility or an “entertainment-centric” environment with great music, full food and beverage offerings and more. FLITE will help others deliver the guest experience that is appropriate for their vision, whether it is a premiere green-grass range or a 100+ bay site with full support for a premium entertainment experience.
Vollbrecht continued, “We are thrilled to share our expertise, experience, and technology platform to create an international network of entertainment facilities. We are committed to delivering an outstanding guest experience and will seek partners who share that commitment.”
FLITE is the supplier and support team powering FlyingTee and committed to growing the active-entertainment market with qualified partners in markets outside of FlyingTee’s scope of interest. The patented system and patent-pending software needed to “make golf fun again,” are only one part of FLITE’s products and services. FLITE also offers a range of services and consulting to ensure every FLITE powered active-entertainment facility provides the highest quality guest experience while delivering the return on investment required to attract capital. From market research to site selection, facility design and pre-opening training, FLITE stands ready to enable the next-generation of active-entertainment venues around the world.
