RALEIGH, NC (WTVD) – Grab your clubs and golf balls, it’s time to practice your swing. But you don’t have to leave the house for this round.
“We have set up ourselves in driveways, front gardens, backyards, upstairs, downstairs, in all sorts of different areas. said Zach Rego, co-owner of Wego Golf.
Rego and Marshall Newman founded Wego Golf in the middle of the pandemic. It is a top class mobile golf simulator.
“Part of the original idea was quarantine ideas, like what we can do so people can still experience an event but stay outside,” Rego said.
And the idea turned out to be perfect timing as the sport of golf grows in popularity. According to the National Golf Foundation, people played 11 million more rounds of golf in October 2020 alone than in October 2019.
“It was something that we thought would work well in this climate, at home events and things like that. And golf has been booming,” Newman said.
Now they say they have events scheduled every weekend through December. From here they hope to expand into other cities and continue to drive the golf craze.
