Eureka Golf is a design, consulting, research, data analytics and communications company committed to mitigating climate change through golf. To achieve this, Eureka arranges and takes on research projects, in addition to developing its own solutions to help golf optimize its footprint.
Golf Shot Forecasting
Combining new ball launch monitoring technology and aerospace engineering, we can assess safety risk from errant golf shots and intelligently minimize mowing, irrigation and fertilizer footprints by applying our own extensive golf shot database to any combination of wind, temperature, altitude, topography and golfer demographics.
Eureka Golf works on numerous research and development projects, both self and externally funded. These include golfer preference studies, mapping and forecasting of golf shots to determine the optimal footprint of managed turfgrass, and research into the carbon status of golf's land use.
