JustOne Golf's Game System is designed to greatly enhance the golf experience by enabling players to win life-changing cash and prizes with a single swing. The Game System is made to engage golfers at all skill levels in on-demand competitive skill experiences, such as hole-in-one and length-of-the94 GCM June 2013 fagstick games. Each hole-in-one experience is automatically captured in high-defnition video and immediately provided to winners for personal use and sharing in social media channels. How it works: JustOne Golf consists of a kiosk at the tee, designed to blend into the course environment, and unobtrusive high-defnition cameras that record the player's experience; it is installed on one or more par-3 holes on the course. The system captures the golfer's swing and shot result, including the ball rolling into the hole. If the player hits the tee shot within the length of the fagstick or makes a hole-in-one, they simply call JustOne's hotline at 855-587-8111 to inform the company of their success, with prizes promptly paid by JustOne.
