Initial Ideas and Directions from the Early Days of the Business

In 2014, Nintendo Wii Golf was popular on the market. We were inspired by American golfers who would play the game by attaching their Wii remotes to a stick at home. However, Wii Golf (the same goes for other golf apps) was designed for home entertainment purposes, and not for swing practice. What this means is, even if the player makes an incorrect swing, the player’s in-game avatar would still complete its preset in-game swing, and the ball would still fly through the air. That is why we developed a software program that enables people to improve their golf swing skills rather than just a game that you can play without putting any real effort in. We filed a US patent registration application in 2014, launched our project at the 2015 US Kickstarter, and released the product in February 2016. SMARTGOLF is a technology-focused company that constantly researches and develops top quality products, giving hope to all golfers. Our vision for the future is to become the greatest golf training service company.
