Re-imagining golf culture with a fresh take, the first-ever Hypegolf Invitational presented by Callaway made its debut in Korea on April 24 at the prestigious Ildong Lake GC, Pocheon.

Along the breathtaking 18 holes at Ildong Lake GC was an impressive lineup of installations, including high performance luxury SUV displays, hands-on demos of electric bicycles, first-hand experiences of the latest model of golf simulator and more. Friendly matches, such as the longest drive, closest to pin, hole in one and best dressed contest spurred a competitive and fun atmosphere.
