W interfest festivities began at Indian Wells Golf Resort on November 16 – technically in autumn – but this would have been a funfest in any season. Ice skating on a genuine, specially con- structed ice rink, laser putting as part of the Shots in the Night entertainment offerings and an exceptional treat, the debut of Toptracer, made Winterfest the hottest ticket in town. Photo-ready, family friendly holiday décor was splashed throughout the fa- cility, including a 38-foot-tall Christ- mas tree. And few winter traditions are as enduring as ice skating, even in the desert. On the Ice in the Desert skat- ing experience, Director of Sales and Marketing Ben Rodny put it in per- spective: "What's not to love?" For golfers, Toptracer was the smash hit at Winterfest. Launched on Novem- ber 14, Toptracer allows players to download the app, hit from specially accommodated bays, and use the same ball-tracking technology that TV networks employ to trace the pros' shots, receive instant data, including total distance, carry distance, ball speed and launch angle. Shots are recorded so that golfers can adjust accordingly and compare results. In addition, the app lets players of all skill levels play virtual games and compete against friends in the next stall, or against new acquaintances from anywhere in the state or country. "To accommodate Toptracer, we lengthened and widened our practice range, which is now covered and topped with solar panels," Rodny said. "The range also features six-person lounge sitting areas. There are 19 bays, all equipped with Toptracer, plus dedi- cated Academy spots. It's an excellent instruction tool and also fun to use." ........................................................... > CLICK HERE to view a complete calendar of upcoming events.
