SkyCaddie Golf GPS Rangefinders
Handheld GPS golf range finders are getting more and more popular and SkyCaddie have the most
popular models. The United States Golf Association has now approved the use of gps
rangefinders in golf.
SkyCaddie is the official rangefinder of several associations including the Professional
Golfers' Association of America, the Canadian Professional Golfers' Association, PGA of Great
Britain and Ireland, PGA of Germany and the Swedish PGA. I think this says something about the
accuracy of SkyCaddies compared to other rangefinders.
In fact, the SkyCaddie was rated more accurate than lasers by a factor of three to two.
A golf range finder basically holds all the information about the golf course you're
playing on and work in the same way as GPS units used for navigating in a car.
SkyCaddie has received the only Gold rating among six GPS rangefinders tested by Golf
Digest magazine for the 2011 "Hot List." SkyCaddie has also been ranked number 1 in
accuracy among distance measuring devices (GPS, lasers and smartphones) in a 2011 survey conducted
by Golf Datatech.
In the case of SkyCaddie, mappers walk every golf course using survey grade equipment and
record critical distances to hazards, layups and green targets.
So, if you haven't tried one yet, there's no doubt that it can make your golf round more
enjoyable and improve your game. Here's a few ways it can help:
- You will always have the exact yardage available without having to do any walking off. You
can't rely on the markers which are unreliable.
- You'll have the correct yardage to greens, to hazards and to the front and back of
- It will improve your selection of a golf club because you will know the average yardage you
hit with each club. This will give you confidence and help you to avoid getting penalties.
- It will save you time because you'll never have to walk off yardages again.
