SKYCADDIE® CELEBRATES FOREMOST DEAL
Golf’s #1 rangefinder SkyCaddie has become Official GPS Supplier to the UK’s largest buying group Foremost Golf.
The announcement comes as SkyCaddie cements its status as the UK’s best-selling golf rangefinder with two new products and a range of technology upgrades for users.
And the company will exhibit for the first time at November’s GTEC golf trade show.
“It’s always exciting when two market leaders join forces,” said SkyHawke Technologies Managing Director, Jackie Hitchcock. “We’re delighted to be joining Foremost as its official GPS supplier: we recognise the group’s strength with over 1,000 on-course PGA Golf Professionals, and we’re pleased that Foremost also recognises the strength of the SkyCaddie brand.
“SkyCaddie’s ethos is to push maximum business to green grass retailers and PGA professionals. We pride ourselves in giving the industry’s best after-sales support, and of course in giving golfers the very best technology available – which all creates the best possible selling conditions for the PGA pro.”
“Absolute accuracy is what golfers want, and we believe that only SkyCaddie offers this,” said Foremost’s Supplier Services Director, Andy Martin. “Foremost retailers want to build long term relationships, both with brands and with their own customers. We believe that the investment SkyCaddie has made in mapping technology marks them clearly out in front, not only in sales volumes but also as regards the quality of their product. They have some exciting new additions to their range this autumn, with even bigger news to come in 2010. I feel that Foremost retailers will find great success by stocking SkyCaddie”.
“Most golfers recognise that SkyCaddie is the brand which sets the targets for all others to follow, and we look forward to a long relationship with the company – starting in Harrogate next week at GTEC!”
Hitchcock believes that the company’s mapping techniques are the key to its success. “We go to extraordinary lengths to ensure that a SkyCaddie yardage sets the accuracy benchmark. We have mapped 98% of the UK’s golf courses on foot, and this year alone we have already re-mapped 480 UK golf courses due to alterations. Nobody else in the industry does this, on anywhere near this scale. And we use the best possible mapping equipment, with well-trained staff – all expert golfers – using the most meticulous methods to ensure that we never miss an important feature on a hole.
“With exciting new technology such as IntelliGreen Pro, Hole Vue and Quick Vue available as free downloads to SkyCaddie customers, and with the new SG2.5Lite and SG3.5 joining the top-of-the-range SG5 in our product line-up, I feel that Foremost retailers have a superb selling story for their customers with SkyCaddie.
“And wait until you see what we have lined up for you in 2010…!”
