Todays guest joining us on the Steve Jobs inspired Join Up Dots podcast is an entrepreneur who is combining his passion for a very common hobby across the world, with his passion for inventing the unusual.
Starting his career way back in 1983 with a six year stint in the US Navy as an Aviation Electronics Technician it was little surprise that he then took his skills into the world of engineering.
And this he did, working his way through a series of positions within the Bently Nevada Corp, always looking for ways to fix a problem, or take something already successful and give it a twist towards greater success.
And now in classic Join Up Dots style, he has taken his passion for problem solving, his engineering skills and his love of golf, and given the whole sport an almighty twist.
He is creating the world’s first authentically majestic indoor golfing experience blending virtual and real golf together.
He realized his game had diminished due to a lack of interesting choices for golfing indoors which would also meet his schedule and timing needs.
He was not alone. The existing options for golfing indoors are sub-par. What was needed was a new industry standard.
What this means is instead of trying to squeeze a round in after work before the light becomes too bad, you can play 24 hours a day. Even saving a round midway, to come back to at a later stage. Golf has become convenient and exciting, and allows experts and novices to play together, enjoying the game time and time again.
So its one thing to get an idea like this but a very different ball game to find the investment and get it off the ground.
So how did he do it?
And did he find himself surrounded by people telling him that he was mad and it couldn’t be achieved?
Well, lets find out as we bring onto the show to start joining up dots the one and only Mr Dave Schultz of REALiTEE Golf.
