Flying a Drone in a Golfing Range
As mapping technology becomes more advanced, the potential uses of drones for golf courses only increases. While some golf courses have used drones and drone pilots to shoot aerial photographs for advertising purposes, this is only the tip of the iceberg. There are far more sophisticated ways for golf courses to use drones. In fact, mapping and 3D modeling could potentially revolutionize the age-old game of golf.
On today’s episode, we take a question from Brian. Brian wants to know what kinds of drone services he can offer golf courses and how to market a drone business. While we discuss marketing and pricing, we spend much of this episode talking about the potential ways that golf courses can use drones and mapping technologies. There are so many opportunities! If you’re a drone pilot looking to work with a golf course, you won’t want to miss this episode!
Thanks for the question Brian! Fly safe!
