Toptracer opens at Waters Edge
FREMONT, MICH. – On Tuesday, Dec. 13, Waters Edge Golf Course in Fremont hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony for its newest offering: Toptracer at The Bunker, a top-rated range technology in the golfing industry worldwide that enhances a players’ driving range experience.
Integrated in over 30 countries, there are 219 Toptracer locations in the U.S. Toptracer’s newest location, The Bunker at Waters Edge, is fully dedicated to providing opportunities for individuals in West Michigan to enjoy a unique aspect of the game of golf.
“Toptracer is transforming the everyday driving range experience by utilizing the same technology that televised golf tournaments use to track shots of the game’s best players,” said Larry Yachcik, Waters Edge general manager. “It uses cameras mounted around The Bunker at Waters Edge where ball-tracing technology displays accurate, live shot data, including distance, speed, launch angle, shape, and more, on a monitor in each hitting bay. The data can then be used for practice purposes or to compete in games and challenges with friends and other Toptracer users throughout the world.”
With Toptracer, guests of all ages and skill levels, including kids, can compete against friends, play virtual courses, receive instant shot feedback on interactive game screens, and receive advanced analytics to perfect their swing.
The Bunker at Waters Edge, the golf course’s new state-of-the-art facility, features eight heated Toptracer bays that can sit up to six people for year-round play, a full-service bar, and fixed food menu for table service. Waters Edge Golf Course and all of its facilities, including Toptracer at The Bunker and Lakes 23 restaurant, are open to the public.
“Waters Edge is a wonderful amenity for the Fremont community and it’s exciting to see the new addition of The Bunker,” said Fremont Mayor James Rynberg. “This addition to the community will draw community and visitors alike to the Waters Edge Golf Course. We are excited for all the updates that have taken place here and we know even more great things are coming.”
“On behalf of the Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce and our business community, we want to congratulate Waters Edge Golf Course on a fantastic new addition for our residents and visitors,” said Karen Baird, executive director, Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce. “Waters Edge has been a great community partner for many years, and continues to provide a positive economic impact on the community. The Bunker is sure to be an economic driver as visitors come to discover Fremont and this new investment at Waters Edge.”
A ribbon-cutting celebration was held in conjunction with the Fremont Area Chamber of Commerce, where The Bunker at Waters Edge received a proclamation from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer’s office.
“With the opening of The Bunker, Waters Edge will surely attract thousands of new patrons,” states the proclamation. “With their goal of always challenging and improving their players’ games of golf, they will undoubtedly continue to be successful for years to come.
