RailShot increases mini golf appeal with changeable golf-hole shapes
RailShot™ Mini Golf, a portable, changeable nine-hole miniature golf course, is being introduced by Adventure Golf & Sports (AGS).
“This is an exciting lower-cost entry in our line of mini golf products,” states Scott Lundmark, AGS president. “RailShot Mini Golf is designed so the owner can change any or all golf shapes to create a new course within minutes.”
For rental and special events providers, as well as hotels, resorts, retail centers, FECs and other entertainment venues, AGS says RailShot can be set up and removed quickly, and the space needed to transport the course is minimal. The company says the mini golf course can also be set up like a maze, where multiple players can be on the course at one time, creating a whole new mini golf game.
According to AGS, their R & D team discovered they could modify a similar edge system used on their AmericanPie course to create this new product. The new RailShot standard edge sections, with reduced height, a unique pin system and use of a new 3-D printed portable “Elevated Hole Cup” (replacing the need for a sunken hole cup), resulted in a unique mini golf system that allows golf-hole shapes to be changed anytime within minutes. RailShot does not require any specific turf, so the course can be set up on any surface.
“RailShot is different from our other portable products and is a throwback to earlier courses where banking golf shots from one edge to another is an integral part of the fun, thus the name RailShot,” says Lundmark.
The RailShot package includes 144 edge sections per 9 holes or 16 sections per hole for clients purchasing fewer than nine holes.
The package price for nine holes includes straps for carrying and storing the sections, a storage bag for Elevated Hole Cups and pins, and 30 AGS Soft Putters in four sizes, four dozen mini golf balls, and one pack of scorecards and pencils.
