From the 2018 CareerBuilder Challenge in Palm Desert, CA in January to the PGA Championship in St. Louis last weekend, GoVision screens have given golf fans and pros alike an extraordinary view of the action this golf season.

At the Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, FL in February, GoVision placed 10 screens throughout the property, highlighted by a 15′ x 26′ screen by the 18th green built on scaffolding on top of the water. In addition, 260′ of GV10CF was deployed as a ribbon board between holes 16 and 17.

For the Houston Open, which began with three small screens in 2009, six big screens were erected – including a giant 48′ x 18′ LED wall on the 18th green (built with 6mm indoor/outdoor SMD LED), a 16′ x 9′ 6mm screen on the 16th green, two 15′ x 10′ lightweight GV10mm screens in the Champions Club, a 16′ x 5′ 5mm indoor SMD in the Media Center and a GoVisionTV on the 17th hole. Our crew also provided TV monitors for the Draw Party where the pros drew the names of their playing partners.

The 50th Anniversary AT&T Byron Nelson was played for the first time at Trinity Forest Golf Club in Dallas this May. In addition to multiple LED screens throughout the course (on the 16th, 17th and 18th greens), GoVision set-up screens in the Pavilion, the East Fan Zone, and the Media Center. GoVision also provided 279 TV monitors for viewers in each of the hospitality areas, concession stands, and activation areas.

Another long-time client – the FedEx St. Jude Classic in Memphis – showcased three GoVision screens in July, ranging from a 29’ x 18’ LED wall on the 18th Green, to a 10’6” x 6’ LED in the HUB to a 9’11” x 5’7” 2.6mm indoor screen in the Pavilion.

GoVision screens were also front and center as Brooks Koepka held off a hard-charging Tiger Woods at the PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. The Press Room featured a 60’ x 13’ 2mm and (2) 16’ x 12’ 6mm screens, while the 18th green and Driving Range sported twin 40’ x 15’ screens.

GoVision also supplied a 2.6mm LED wall spanning 59’ x 13’for the Media Center, two 16’ x 3’ Omega Digital Clocks and production services for the tournament’s “Immersive LED Content.”
