Orlando, FL (Jan 26, 2023) – iGolf has been an industry best-kept secret for the past 20 years, despite having established a strong global presence in golf data mapping while becoming a brand specifically focused on providing the golf technology sector with advancements in software, hardware and GPS content.
However, the way the San Diego-based tech company is hitting the ground running in 2023, it’s a very safe bet that iGolf will not remain in the shadows for much longer.
iGolf has recently invested heavily in adding new intellectual property to its licensing portfolio, including radar-based launch monitor technology, laser range finder sensors, trolley and golf car intelligence, 3D elevation terrain on 23,000-plus courses and virtual reality environments for the gaming sector.
The company is also preparing to make some exciting announcements in tandem with over a dozen long-time and brand-new clients during the 2023 PGA Show in Orlando, Florida later this month.
iGolf is currently working with several emerging brands in the game’s distance measuring space – Blue Tees, RAD Golf and TecTecTec – and also with leaders in the golf cars and trolley space – such as Yamaha, MGI, Motocaddy, Powakaddy and the new Evolution Golf.
Gaming is another area of focus for iGolf, with brands like PhiGolf and Rapsodo expected to revolutionize the industry with some pending announcements and forward-thinking initiatives, while the trusted tech company has recently re-signed stalwart industry clients such as TaylorMade and the USGA, both of which use iGolf’s cutting edge GPS and mapping technology.
A long-running belief held by employees and partners of iGolf is if you play golf, more than likely you have benefited from something the tech company has contributed to the industry.
That touchpoint could be something as simple as GPS maps in a golf watch or as complex as a semi-autonomous electric trolley.
Working with over 65 brands, including Fortune 500 companies, iGolf’s intellectual property has found its way into a variety of products including golf cars, watches, lasers, handhelds, mobile apps, electric push carts (trolleys), launch monitors and speakers.
The origins of iGolf date back to when CEO and Founder Brian Verdugo was a student at San Diego State University, learning to play golf during his spare time from earning a degree in economics.
“I’d find myself on a golf course thinking: ‘There’s got to be a better way of doing this.’ At that time, I had a palm pilot and I thought why can’t we put something on these devices instead of using a laser, which at that time was challenging to use,” said Verdugo. “Why not figure out a way to use your smart device (later a smartphone) for GPS distances, so golfers would know how far to hit their golf ball?”
The rest is history. Verdugo has established himself as a trailblazer in the world of golf technology while iGolf, which started out solely as a GPS device company, has morphed into a portfolio of advanced technologies which are licensed and deployed into millions of products in the golfing sector, primarily focused on its robust database of GPS mapped golf courses.
iGolf began as a data mapping company which has become a brand uniquely focused on providing the golf technology sector with advancements in software, hardware and GPS content. With a strong global presence in golf data mapping spanning more than 20 years, iGolf is perfectly positioned to license companies Golf GPS maps for nearly 40,000 golf courses in 150 different countries. iGolf has invested heavily in adding new intellectual property to its portfolio including radar-based launch monitor technology, laser range finder sensors, trolley and golf car intelligence, 3D elevation terrain on 23,000-plus courses and virtual reality environments for the gaming sector. Over 60 licensees, including Fortune 500 companies, rely on iGolf’s technology to bring advanced products into the hardware, software and mobile sectors.
