BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - New Jersey HomeCourse™ announced its official launch at the 64th PGA Merchandise Show, January 25-27, 2017, in Orlando, Fla. The innovative, state-of-the-art, fully-retractable, pro screen allows golfers of all levels, the ability to play a round of 18 holes on a virtually-simulated course, in less than 30 seconds. This week HomeCourse™ was listed #1 on SwingBySwing’s list of top golf training aids at the 2017 PGA Show.

When Joseph Manieri of Berkeley Heights, NJ, started to play golf in his 30s, he knew he had a lot of catching up to do with golfers who started perfecting their game much earlier in life. Over the years, that obsession has led to a pursuit to perfect his game. In search of every excuse possible to play year-round while living in the Northeast, Manieri found himself looking for ways to practice, especially during the long winter months of the off season. After years of investing in practice and training equipment, nets, clubs and other gear, Manieri eventually purchased golf simulator software to practice more frequently, but it required the use of a foam ball. After searching the market for a training apparatus, Manieri realized there was nothing out there that fit his space, needs or budget. After much research, Manieri decided to create his own, in-home golf simulator environment and HomeCourse™ was born.

HomeCourse™ allows golfers of any level of play to practice or play a round of 18 holes on virtually any course, rain or shine in less than 30 seconds. “My goal was to create a golf training aid that would allow me to practice anytime that worked with my schedule, allowed me to use a real golf ball and had a projectability factor to pair with my simulator. I also needed a product that would take up little to no space and offered easy accessibility,” said Manieri. Enthusiasm for the product from family and close friends put Manieri on a path to filing patents and launching HomeCourse™.

HomeCourse™ is an innovative, state-of-the-art, fully retractable golf training system that is wireless, battery powered, operates with the click of a remote control and descends and retracts in less than 30 seconds. The system offers a ballistic grade projection screen designed to withstand the impact of a real golf ball and is surrounded by pro-arm and sky netting enclosures for safety. It can be paired with or without simulator software and is available for a fraction of the cost of typical in-home golf simulator enclosures. This revolutionary product offers golfers of all levels of play the ability to learn, train, practice or perfect their game anytime, in almost any space. Within seconds golfers can turn virtually any space into an indoor driving range or golf simulator environment, and then with the click of a button, return the room back to its original setting. “Golfers know getting out on the course frequently enough to improve their game can be a challenge due to time and weather constraints. HomeCourse™ is a product I use almost every day and I’ve seen a significant improvement in my game as a result,” said Manieri.
