#1 GPS rangefinder adds extras worth £70 including Marriott green fee

SkyCaddie – the No.1 rangefinder in golf – has released a special 2008 Christmas Gift Pack which includes the top-of-the-range SkyCaddie SG5 and added extras worth at least £70.

In the Gift Pack, the best-selling, colour screen SG5 comes bundled with a voucher for a free green fee at nine selected Marriott golf courses in the UK, plus a free SkyCaddie Travel Case and travel pack worth £24.95, and an LCD Screen Guard worth £6.95.

The SkyCaddie Christmas 2008 Gift Pack enables golfers to protect the most sought-after handheld GPS device in golf on its travels. With an RRP of £299 and available in limited-edition packaging, the Gift Pack is the perfect Christmas present for all golfers.

The Marriott Golf Hotel & Country Clubs in the promotion, including Dalmahoy, the Forest Of Arden, St. Pierre, Hollins Hall, Sprowston Manor, Tudor Park, Worsley Park, Breadsall Priory and Meon Valley, have all been measured by SkyCaddie’s course mappers. In the SkyCaddie Gift Pack, golfers get a free green fee voucher valid until 31st March 2009.

The SkyCaddie SG5 – the official rangefinder of the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland – is the ultimate golf rangefinder. Golfers get a 220 x 176 resolution colour screen, automatic backlighting, 14-hours of rechargeable battery life, a mini-USB port, four-way scroll pad and a water-resistant body.

The colour screen really brings the golf course to life and this, combined with SkyCaddie’s IntelliGreen function, gives the golfer unbeatable information about what shot to play next wherever they are on the course.

The IntelliGreen technology enables golfers to measure the full depth and shape of the green from any angle of approach (even the wrong fairway!) and shows distances for all targets and hazards.

And with 95% of courses in England, Scotland and Wales now mapped – along with thousands of other courses worldwide - demand in the UK for the innovative hand-held units has been soaring.

The new SkyCaddie SG5 GPS rangefinder appeals to golfers on two levels – playing better, and playing faster!

It gives instant and accurate information via satellite, which includes exact yardages to the front of hazards and to carry them, and precise distances to the green.

The yardages have been physically measured on foot by SkyCaddie’s UK team of ‘course mappers’. So unlike other rangefinders, who used outdated aerial photography, the on-course detail has been verified by golfers, for golfers. This really is like having a Tour caddy on your shoulder.

The SkyCaddie SG5 conforms to USGA/R&A rulings and golfers are able to download the courses they want to play via a range of annual SkyPlayer Membership schemes.
