About Us

Passion Turned Profession

At InHome Golf, partnership means everything – in technology, in business, and of course, with our clients. We couldn’t do what we do without you.

As We See It

InHome Golf is where industry insight and passion meet. With decades and countless rounds under our belts, we couldn’t help but notice a disconnect between the experiential needs of golfers and the tech-focused offerings of elite providers. Technology and data are great when it comes to improving your game but for most of us, experience means everything – so we set out to do things a little differently.

We all remember that feeling, something that drives us forward in everything we do, and we look forward to helping each one of our clients reproduce that sensation with every swing of the club.

CEO

Customer service-minded from the jump, James worked at the Royal Canadian Golf Association selling hospitality and sponsorship for the two national Opens. He was the Director of Sales for HD Golf Simulators, followed by the National Director for TrackMan while they built their initial golf simulator division. In 2017 he launched InHome Golf to create design-driven, tech-forward golf simulator experiences that take your game and entertainment space to the next level. James trains in Gojo Ryu Karate as 1st Dan and plays bass in a band called the ShaolinTemple Pilots. Yes, he does have a pair of gold records on his wall from an earlier career as a manager of rock bands, but no, you’ve never heard of the bands.
