An adventure golf centre in Livingston has become the first in the UK to use augmented reality (AR) to give players the chance to enjoy the game in a variety of imaginative settings.
To use the new technology, players must download the app designed by Glasgow-based Fore Digital and scan their phone over triggers positioned around Paradise Island Adventure Golf centre’s 36 holes. They will then be transported to a new world with talking Easter Island Heads and Aztec Warrior putting tips.
Craig Nichol, Marketing Manager of Paradise Island Adventure Golf, comments: “We are one of Livingston’s most popular family locations, but we know it is always about pushing the boundaries and bringing something new.
“As well as all the fun animal and special effect features, the app includes an interactive scorecard, a winner’s podium which transports players through an active volcano, a booking function and a loyalty card.
“It should really appeal to the young digital-savvy audience and we can’t wait to see everyone enjoying this groundbreaking new way of playing the game.”
Outside of West Lothian, Paradise Island Adventure Golf also has sites in Manchester, Chester, Derby, Sheffield and Glasgow.
