Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf

05 Feb 2007

Teeing off in 2006 and quickly becoming established as a favourite event for players and spectators alike, the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship is now one of the biggest events on the PGA European Tour, regularly attracting some of golf’s most famous names. The 2007 Championship saw Englishman Paul Casey win the Falcon Cup, and ARL's Virtual Eye Golf team were there providing course flyovers, hole and bunker information graphics showing any view point, tee box statistics such as rise/fall to green, slopes, distance markers, zones and current pin position.

A last minute decision by the tournament sponsors meant that Christmas holidays for Virtual Eye were put on hold; This had a flow on effect to New Zealand Aerial Mapping who, together with our sister company Terralink International, commissioned high resolution aerial photography and aerial laser survey data to be collected for Abu Dhabi Golf Club on short notice. Abu Dhabi Golf Club had been significantly upgraded in preparation for the event. Improvements included a new gatehouse, enhanced signage, a revamped approach road and extensive landscaping with some 120 palm trees and 16,000 square metres of planting - the features were incorporated into our virtual Abu Dhabi course in time for January 18.
