About our Business
Inrange® was founded by a group of highly respected South African engineers who used their expertise in the world of radar and radio telescopes to develop the most advanced, accurate and reliable golf tracking system in the world. Beyond its advanced hardware, the company is focused on providing the best user experience possible through its interactive app and in-bay displays. The goal when developing the system was to provide golf’s newcomers an experience that would leave them hungry for more, while giving serious players a focused way to improve their handicap with every session. This is achieved through a variety of fun games enjoyable for all skill levels. We are part of a larger family of companies within the Alphawave group, based in Technopark, Stellenbosch and London, UK.
