Golfzon set to open first North American location under new brand Zstrict

World-leading golf-simulator business to debut at Chelsea Piers Connecticut

(STAMFORD, Conn.) GOLFZON – the world leader in the golf simulator business – will open its first North American location in early October in Connecticut under the umbrella of its new brand, ZSTRICT.

Founded in 2000 in South Korea, GOLFZON has been named “Best Simulator” by Golf Digest’s Editors’ Choice Awards from 2017 – 2019. More than 57 million rounds are played on GOLFZON simulators in 46 countries annually. Having earned the largest industry market share, ZSTRICT’s first U.S. venue will call Chelsea Piers Connecticut home.

“This is a monumental achievement for our newest endeavor, ZSTRICT,” says Tommy Lim, CEO of GOLFZON AMERICA. “We are honored and excited to debut our award-winning products, services and technology to the American marketplace.”

Chelsea Piers Connecticut is one of the finest sports and recreational facilities in America. ZSTRICT’s 11,000 square-foot location will offer swing plate variable ground settings, multi-surface hitting mats, smart auto tee, intelligent data on ball flight, club speed, posture adjustment and more. With rich graphics, real-time feedback and global connectivity, ZSTRICT’s software produces unmatched course realism. Each venue allows players to compete on real-life golf courses including Bethpage Black, The Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, St. Andrews, and more.

Customers can participate in daily and monthly competitions. The in-store contests will allow players to simultaneously participate against each other in a variety of formats for cash and point prizes. To date, ZSTRICT’s parent company hosts an average of 350 simulator tournaments per day.

“At ZSTRICT, we want each golfer to feel they have an opportunity to learn, compete, or just have fun,” continues Lim. “Our unmatched simulator technology will allow all players to have the best experience specific to their game and interests.”

Like outdoor facilities, ZSTRICT will proudly employ PGA Professionals to help guests with swing lessons, club fittings and other elements of the game. The Chelsea Piers Connecticut venue will be a year-round golf destination for improvement, competition, socializing and enjoyment. At ZSTRICT, there will always be time to play.
