Aerial Photography for Golf Courses

Aerial photography gives golf courses comprehensive collateral to market their properties in advanced and immersive ways.

Golf courses face a dilemma when promoting their properties; they must showcase their expansive beauty while also offering granular details that help players perfect their game. Ground-level photography and traditional marketing won’t cut it in today’s digital landscape, and flyover imaging with helicopters or planes is cost-prohibitive.

Golf course drone photography helps golf courses capture aerial images and comprehensive ground data quickly and affordably. The images and data collected lend themselves to marketing tactics that inspire players to take control of their game and gives the marketing team gorgeous imagery for use on your digital platforms and print brochures. In addition to the marketing possibilities, collecting data via drones for golf courses helps maintenance crews with oversight and upkeep.

Golf Course Drone Marketing

Aerial photos and videos capture the full beauty and unique terrain of your golf course, better than ground-level images. Our drone pilots are skilled in capturing effective drone golf course photography and will work with your communications team to create imagery that really informs golfers about the quality of your course and the complexity of the holes.

Creating a Digital Yardage Book with Drone Data

FlyGuys can help you create a digital yardage book for smart devices that far surpasses paper-based books. Forget drawings and animations — our drone will capture actual course imagery and videos that are much more visually appealing and accurate. The digital yardage book also shows caddy tips and yardage, and works on any mobile device.

For golfers: speeds up play because there are no blind spots and they know what to expect at each hole – they can plan their game in advance, like how NFL players study films in preparation for game day

For course owners: offers the opportunity to cross-sell and upsell to a captive audience while providing a modern amenity

We offer a branded app that golfers can use to book a tee time or see the yards from where they are to the center of the green. The app can show the front, middle, and back of the green without draining the user’s battery. Course owners can place messages and advertise within the app. Having the ability to cross sell your course’s products and services, such as lessons, merchandise, food and beverages, as well as tournaments and events, will only have a positive affect on your course’s bottom line.
