In 2018, Leadbetter was acquired by Korean golf technology company Golfzon Newdin Holdings with a singular goal in mind: making golf more fun and accessible to people around the world.
Golfzon’s simulators have made indoor “screen golf” a sensation in South Korea. Young people are flocking to the game, and Golfzon cafés have become social hubs and after-hours meeting points for workers of all ages, with approximately 59 million rounds played on GOLFZON simulators annually.
“We’re taking fresh ideas and new technologies and growing an exciting new culture in the game. We look forward to combining Golfzon’s VR technology with LGA’s brand power to grow the game by furthering the development of professional players, junior golf and amateur golf.”
