GOLFZON is a global leader in the golf simulator industry, with over 34,000 simulators in 63 countries across 7,300 sites worldwide. The company’s growth has been explosive since it was established in South Korea in 2000.
Today, over 65 million rounds of golf are played annually on GOLFZON simulators, an average of 150,000 daily, and 356 amateur tournaments are played every day by over 3.2 million online members with over 2.3 million Golfzon app downloads. Proving the reliability and quality of GOLFZON’s state-of-the-art technology, the Men’s and Women’s GTOUR Championships — simulated tournaments — are broadcast live in Korea and Japan.
GOLFZON Chairman Kim Young Chan started GOLFZON as a small venture company specializing in golf simulators that has developed into a large contributor to golf industry growth in South Korea.
GOLFZON has sought to overcome the entry barrier to golf and expand the number of golfers under the corporate philosophy, “making golf enjoyable for everyone,” believing that golf should be no longer exclusive for the upper class. With a simulation-based business model consisting of golf, IT and culture, GOLFZON has the largest market share in the global golf simulator business.
In 2016, GOLFZON expanded its focus to the United States market, establishing headquarters in Virginia and targeting the Northeast U.S. for its initial sales efforts. The following year, GOLFZON’s chairman was selected as one of the world’s top 10 golf innovators and the company formed partnerships with the National Golf Course Owners Association and the Metropolitan Golf Association.
GOLFZON’s simulators have made the playing of indoor “screen golf” a sensation in South Korea, where access to green-grass courses is limited. Young people are flocking to the game, and GOLFZON cafés have become social hubs and after-hours meeting points for workers of all ages.
