ViewSonic brings fully immersive indoor golf experience to Newbury & Crookham Golf Club

Newbury & Crookham Golf Club, established in 1873, is one of the oldest clubs in England, with 600 members who enjoy the 18 hole, par 69 course set amongst mature woodland.

  • Create an indoor golf simulation facility for club members to practice and develop their golf skills all year round, in multiple virtual locations under the guidance of the club’s resident golf club professional.
  • ViewSonic Pro8530HDL installation projector and ViewSonic CDE6561T interactive flat panel.
  • Combined, these AV solutions deliver an efficient installation, a highly-immersive experience, and the capability to assess and analyse player skills to complement the golf club professional’s supervision and coaching - all within the client’s budget.
  • Quick and easy installation which minimised inconvenience to the club
  • A solution which was affordable and cost-efficient
  • A system which provides interactive coaching and practice as well as analysis of player skills
  • A weather-proof facility that enabled the club to maximise other on-site income streams

Newbury & Crookham Golf Club approached ViewSonic about developing an immersive indoor golf practice experience. The concept would allow club members to practice golf in any weather at a number of virtual locations, whilst under the supervision and guidance of the club’s professional golf instructor.

“It was really important to us that we provided a facility which was up to date, reflected our passion for golf, and demonstrated our desire to enhance our members’ experiences ”, Barry Newman, Head Golf Professional at Newbury & Crookham Golf Club.


Two ViewSonic AV solutions were selected to provide the most efficient method of installation, and the most immersive experience for both practice and coaching:

The Pro8530HDL is a Full HD projector designed for large venue projection. The projector utilises a unique flexible installation design and intuitive functionality to deliver an immersive wide screen simulated viewing experience on a large 4.5m screen.

The CDE6561T is a fully interactive HD resolution display with 20-point touch which, when paired with PC-less operation and annotation software, allows multiple users to write and draw on the display simultaneously. For our golf club installation the system will be used for interactive assessment of players’ skills, including analysis of grip, swing, angle of impact, force and direction of play.

The Result

The project enabled the club to realise the development of a fully-immersive and realistic indoor golf simulation experience. Quick installation also minimised inconvenience and enabled the club to promote an exciting new all-weather facility.

Moreover, a number of additional benefits have been realised as well, including an increase in member attendance and engagement, positive customer feedback, and an excellent review from the club’s professional golfer.

“The Club has a long and interesting history – our new indoor all-weather training facility shows our commitment to embracing the latest technology to help our members improve their game. What we have here is really unique and I enjoy the opportunity to use different locations to help add variety to my coaching and instruction”, Barry Newman, Head Golf Professional at Newbury & Crookham Golf Club.
