The concept of Softgolf™ started in 1974 and it took 5 years from concept, research, developing prototypes, receiving patents to the first operation in Delran, NJ in 1979. Ray, Jr.s parents Raymond, Sr. and Blanche Baldorossi operated the first Softgolf™ course serving raving fans and repeat customers for ten years.
Fast forward to today. Softgolf ™ now has a durable ball and equipment that glows in the dark for fun, night time golf play.
Softgolf™ successfully operated in Delran, NJ for 10 years and held a World Softgolf™ Championship tournament every year.
People from all over the Greater Philadelphia area lined up to enjoy this fun family activity including former Eagles quarterback Ron Jaworsky.
We're excited to be opening Softgolf™ in Clemmons, NC offering a new outdoor activity to the Winston Salem and greater Triad area. Stay tuned for information on the first World Softgolf™
Tournament in North Carolina.
Large faced Cleek ( like a 3 iron) Putter, and Skupr ( like an 8 iron) are used for hitting the ball (Same Weight as Regular Golf Clubs) using the same swing as traditional golf yet increasing the ease of use for novice players or those with limited physical abilities.
Then there's those of us who just aren't good at golf who still want to enjoy playing a fun game outdoors.
The larger clubs, balls and holes Softgolf™ provides allows everyone no matter what your ability to enjoy golf.
The Patented Foam Ball is 4 3/8 Inches originally hand made with a homemade machine using old 1960’s washing machine and skateboard wheels and many other recycled parts from the 1960’s. Although it still works today, Ray Jr. has recently developed a highly durable ball allowing for this unique golf game to be played in all kinds of weather and temperatures. These bright glow in the dark balls add excitement to this fun outdoor game.
One of the recent advances in Softgolf™ is solar powered night time play. Everything glows in the dark making it an fun and exciting night game all ages love.
We at Solfgolf™ believe in using green energy that's why we are committed to using solar power and green energy in our operations.
