Golf In: From Saint-Georges to the NHL

18 May 2021

Amidst the warm month of July, the company had no idea that the world’s best hockey players were about to take advantage of its expertise.

The beautiful Beauce region has produced its fair share of professional hockey players over the years. From Simon Nolet and Jesse Bélanger, both Stanley Cup champions, to current NHL star and Ottawa Senators defenseman Thomas Chabot, Beaucerons do not have to be ashamed of their NHL representatives. However, when the National Hockey League activities resumed last July for playoffs, it is off the ice that the region lit the lamp.

Through the NHL bubble located in Edmonton, Golf In was able to go on site and install four golf simulators with the goal to entertain the players in their spare times. For two months, our installations were used by players from the Calgary Flames, the Vancouver Canucks, the Chicago Blackhawks, the Minnesota Wild and the Colorado Avalanche.

Short notice; deferred vacation

Golf In was everything except a benchwarmer in its quest to manufacture and install the simulators in time for August 1st, the league’s official return date. In fact, when the company received the offer to accomplish such a task on July 17th, it was the Construction Holiday eve. In order to seize this opportunity and deliver the order on time, the production team agreed to push back their vacation 2 weeks later. Once the order was produced and shipped, the installation team travelled to Alberta to install 4 Select models, right on time for the first puck drop. Another testimony of Golf In professionalism and its dedication to customer service.

New clients among players

NHL players are professionals and masters of their craft. Sharing the same values of expertise and performance, it is in the industry of indoor golf simulators that Golf In holds the home ice advantage. Many players spent a good amount of time playing on our simulators and have appreciated their playing experience. Today, we are proud to have a few of them among our clients and we are confident this number is going to increase!
