The Ride of a Lifetime: The Evolution of REALiTEE Golf – Part I

This is Dave Shultz

Dave Schultz, Realitee Golf

The visionary behind REALiTEE Golf. When the idea came to him he knew he had the skills to bring it to life. He has found a clear singularity of purpose in building REALiTEE Golf. If you’ve had the chance to speak with Dave this year, you have heard about the future of golf, REALiTEE Golf.

2016 Golf Industry Show

Before launching the REALiTEE Golf brand at the Golf Industry Show in San Diego this February, Dave Shultz had already brought notable people on board with his vision for REALiTEE Golf.

He met NFL Hall of Fame Quarterback, Warren Moon and his marketing company, Sports 1 Marketing, and within three days they agreed to work with us to bring REALiTEE Golf to the masses.

He teamed up with world-renowned Golf Course Architect, Robert Trent Jones II. RTJ II personally visited us at REALiTEE Golf at GIS16 and again at the Masters Golf Tournament at Augusta National. Both times, RTJ II expressed his excitement about the potential of REALiTEE Golf and Dave’s enthusiasm for the project.

GIS was the perfect place to launch the game changing idea. Many people at the show got a chance to talk to Dave and learn all about REALiTEE Golf and how it will help grow golf.
