Golfzon M: Real Swing released via app stores

South Korea’s leading golf simulator company Golfzon announced on June 28 that it had globally published a mobile golf game named Golfzon M: Real Swing.

The game is currently available through Google Play Store and Apple App Store, according to the Seoul-based corporation.

The new game is based on real golf courses as it recreates the terrains, the uphill and downhill holes on the screen. As a result, golfers can practice before playing outdoors.

In time with the debut of Golfzon M: Real Swing, Golfzon plans to come up with a variety of promotional events for a month through July 24.

Players of Golfzon M: Real Swing will be able to get golf clubs and golf-related merchandise. Winners will be picked by lottery.

In particular, players of Golfzon M: Real Swing will be given gifts during the first week of its launch, including special items that can be used during the game.

“On the back of our technological prowess and know-how, we have reproduced the real golf courses,” Golfzon official Yoo Chang-hoon said.

“So many people showed their interest in our new game through its soft launching and pre-registration. We are very appreciative of such big interests. We will put forth great efforts to let golfers enjoy the popular sport with their mobile devices.”

Since the early 2000s when Golfzon entered the golf simulator market, the corporation has pioneered South Korea’s indoor golf culture.

The company has been recognized as the best golf simulator over the past few years by Golf Digest.

The publisher studied Korean history in Seoul and management of business administration in the United Kingdom. He has 20-year experiences in the media business. Kim can be reached at voc200@gmail.com or 82-2-6956-6698.
