The Platinum Package includes localization for the aG Data website.   The goal is to provide your clients with full access to aG Data technology while maintaining the branding and messaging of your Indoor Golf Center.

Branding and messaging includes prominent display of your:

  • Company name as a subdomain on the URL


The registration page provides a convenient mechanism to collect your information and setup your aG Data website.

How do I find my Install ID?

Each simulator will have a unique Install ID directly affiliated with your Private Tours.  Only your simulators will have access to your Private Tours and Private Events.

Please follow these two steps for each simulator to retrieve the Install ID unique for each simulator.

Step 1

Select Utilities on the main menu

Step 2

At the Utilities screen, select the Show ID button


Note: Each simulator must be connected to the internet for participation in Online Events.   A simulator that is not connected to the internet will not have access to the Online Event server and consequently will not have an Install ID or participate in any Online Events.

Privacy Recommendation for aG Data

As a Platinum Subscription holder, your clients will have exclusive access to the aG Data website complete with your branding and logo.

aboutGOLF strongly recommends disabling the browser feature that offers to save login information.   This should be done on all browsers used on your simulator computers.  aboutGOLF computers come configured with Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge.   Some simulator owners may have changed the browser preference to other solutions, such as Chrome or Firefox.   

Why is this important?   

Most internet browsers offer the ability to save your id and password when entering via a login screen.   Your customer may inadvertently agree to have their id and password saved.   With a private computer or a private simulator this is considered a convenience.  However, for a public computer where many customers use the browser this can be a privacy risk.  

If your browser saves the login information, a customer with a similar name may see a list of names appear as part of the auto-complete feature.   If they then select one of the previously saved names, the browser will automatically retrieve and auto-fill their password.   Without having to know your password, this person could inadvertently login and have access to your account. 

Privacy Recommendation for aG Data
