The Delray Beach, Fla., club’s 18-hole golf course is undergoing a $6 million renovation, and the club is keeping members up to date with drone footage posted bi-weekly. The redesign is expected to be complete by this December.
Mizner Country Club in Delray Beach, Fla., is using drone technology to keep its members informed about the $6 million renovation of its 18-hole golf course with bi-weekly video updates. Construction of the course redesign is expected to be completed by December 1, 2016.
“For our vacationing members or those with northern summer homes, the drone videos are keeping them in tune with the construction progress, and they are loving it,” said General Manager Larry Savvides.
Drones (also known as UAVs or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) are surging in popularity and are increasingly being used in a wide range of industries. According to U.S. aviation officials, there could be 7 million small drones in the sky by 2020, with as many as 2.7 million of them used for commercial purposes.
“Justin Fuller is our drone operator/video editor. He puts a lot of effort into the videos to insure our viewers can see the progress without actually being on the course,” said Adam Jalowiec, Director of Golf Course Maintenance. “He works closely with us to make sure we are showing all the items of importance, and the drone perspective is spectacular. Florida rarely has elevated picture opportunities unless you own a helicopter and that is where the drone videos really stand out.”
