  • Miami, FL (1888PressRelease) July 24, 2010 - Gerald Larson, a starter/ranger in Doral, Florida was granted a U.S. patent, earlier this year, on a new type of golf course that he calls the SelectPace Golf Course. After over 50 years of playing golf, and many years working in the golf industry, and seeing the pace of play problem every day, this retired computer programmer thought the only way to really solve the pace of play problem was to invent a course that didn't have this 'built in' problem.

    All golfers naturally play at a different pace, depending on their experience, habits and skill levels. The number playing together (foursomes, threesomes, twosomes, singles) also obviously affects their pace. Unfortunately, on a busy conventional golf course, the slowest group on the course usually determines the pace of the whole course, which is too often 5 hours or more. This upsets faster players, who sometimes demand refunds because of the slow pace. They sometimes skip playing altogether, simply because they don't want to spend that much time.

    Mr. Larson claims that this patented golf course concept lets all golfers play at their own pace on a new type of full-sized golf course. He says, "This unique design allows faster golfers to easily bypass slower ones, and also relieves the intimidation that slower players sometimes feel when pushed by faster players". So far, this new type of golf course has not been built, but Larson says he is looking to license the patent to someone who would build the first one. "I realize that the golf industry has been in a slump for the last couple of years, and relatively few golf courses are now being built. But I'm confident the SelectPace Golf Course could be successful, given the right location and a suitable piece of land. Certain existing courses, that are failing, could be redesigned and renovated into this type of course." says Larson.
