Maker of OptiShot Infrared Simulator Advances to No. 299 on List of America’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies
(TRAVERSE CITY, MI) – Dancin’ Dogg Golf – maker of the OptiShot Infrared Simulator, the ultimate in-home virtual golf system – has posted three-year revenue growth of 1,241%, placing it No. 299 on the 2012 Inc. 500 list of America’s fast-growing entrepreneurial companies.
This honor, as published in the September issue of Inc. Magazine, represents a rise of 59 positions from Dancin’ Dogg’s inaugural placement on the 2011 list. The ascension was spurred by rapid spikes in consumer and retailer demand for OptiShot’s easy-to-use in-home system. Fun, affordable and hyper-accurate, it allows players to practice and play using their own clubs on replicas of major championship courses.
“Our dedicated team is focused on delivering an unmatched experience for men and women of all ages who want to practice and improve their games anytime, day or night,” says Brandon Theophilus, CEO of Dancin’ Dogg Golf. “Of all the accolades we’ve received recently, this one is special since it’s an objective and overwhelming validation of the virtual golfing experience provided by OptiShot.”
Over the last 12 months, Dancin’ Dogg has grown its North American retail presence by more than 30%, adding approximately 700 golf-specialty stores to its roster of partners. Earlier this year, the company began expanding its international footprint through distribution agreements in the UK, continental Europe and the Asia-Pacific region.
OptiShot (MSRP $399.95) operates via a plug-and-play interface with Windows computers. Featuring crystal-clear graphics and superb visual shot feedback of clubhead speed, face angle, swing path, distance, tempo, face contact and ball flight, it also offers users the ability to:

In addition to Core courses that come standard, users can purchase premium courses, use the par-3 option, or hit balls on a realistic driving range.
