OUR FULL SWING GOLF SIMULATORS:
Brooke Henderson, Canadian golf super star, has joined on with Full Swing Golf. ” As my career has elevated, so has my need to have the best training technology available. Full Swing’s accuracy and reliability are second to none, and I know their products will help me as I prepare for golf’s biggest stages.” Brooke visited GOLFOMAX a few years back. After a visit she emailed us. “Enjoyed my time at Golf-O-Max tonight. Thanks again. 🙂 Brooke”. Maybe that experience led her to choose Full Swing.
Tiger Woods, who just won his 15th Major Title at the Masters in April 2019, uses Full Swing Golf. Following his win of the Tour Chamionship in September 2018, he stated “Consistent practice on my Full Swing Pro Series simulator was important to my return”.
Jordan Speith, 3 time Major Champion, PGA Tour Player of the Year and FED EX CUP champ uses our simulators. “The Full Swing sim is the closest thing to being out on the course.” See video link here.
Jason Day, 10 time PGA tour winner. “The accuracy and reliability of the Full Swing simulator is unparalleled.”
Jim McLean, renowned golf instructor. “The Full Swing Golf Simulator is the most impressive indoor system I have ever seen for teaching, practicing or playing this great game.”
Golf Digest, 2016 Editor’s Choice Best Golf Simulator.

CHARITY GOLF TOURNAMENT:
GOLFOMAX celebrated it’s 20th anniversay with a Charity golf tournament on June 1, 2015 at Kanata Golf Club. Many thanks to all our prize donors and sponsors, our volunteer staff, and all our participants. Together we raised $14,000 for the Childrens Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and the Ottawa Childrens Treatment Centre (OCTC).
136 avid golfers, many of whom are regular Golfomax patrons, participated in a 4 man Texas Scramble. Golfomax staff were on hand at all the par 3 holes to help out with an additional shot for each team. Congrats to the winning team, captained by Steve Murray with playing partners Eric Cormier, Cody Barbeau and Stu Muir.
Honorary lifetime member, Ralph “Mick” McClean.
With our 20th milestone season, we granted one of our longest playing patrons with an honorary lifetime membership. Mick, a member at Hylands who is now 87 years young, has been playing at the Max twice weekly since we opened in 1995. He has probably played more rounds of golf and drank more coffee than anybody else. After his rounds, he enjoys his usual pint in the lounge with his buddies, telling tall stories about his golf game and past career in the Navy.
Mick joins Lloyd Swick, another long time patron who unfortunately past away recently at the age of 94. Lloyd was given an honorary membership in 2012, in part because he was a very sweet guy and always keen to work on improving his game. This was also in recognition of Lloyd being the driving force behind the War Animals Memorial unveiled at Confederation Park in November 2012.
