DMC the company who provide thousands of golfers with GPS software have by popular demand launched their free download for the Open Championship.

For golfers who have normal mobile phones such as Blackberry’s, Nokia’s and the like, golfers can either visit the CaddyAid Mobile website at and register their details using the promotional code OPEN to get a completely FREE version of the software including the famous Old Course included, or they can simply text the word GOLF to 82727, and when asked, also enter the promotional code OPEN, and the software link will be sent directly to their phone via a returned text message.

For those golfers who have an I Phone, once again DMC do not disappoint, and golfers can simply visit the Apple I Tunes store and get the free download of the Golf GPS I software, including high visibility photographs by following the link or by searching within the App Store on their phone for Golf GPS I 2010 Open.

David Morris, MD of DMC explains “for the last two years we have supplied our customers both new and old this free download, and from the huge response we had last year at Turnberry, we could not refuse so many requests this year.

“Of course for the club professional, in terms of texting a code such as their golf club name allows golfers or corporate clients to get a free trial download of the course in question before the customer buys, which is a huge incentive to both the player and the pro. If the golf pro wishes to charge for this FREE download its up to them, but we do not charge the pro, as it is a way for us to show complete confidence in the product we have, and also an element of good customer relations with the pro in our business dealings.

“We provide all our software to the pros in advance completely for free, and only invoice them at the end of the month after the sales have taken place, so in effect it is a sale or return policy. We know is a major factor when comparing to other GPS companies, who are invoicing the pro ahead of any sales at hundreds of pounds just for one unit. For us, the golfer gets the same GPS readouts to the green, bunkers, trees, ditches etc but on their mobile phone, and for a considerably lower RRP, that being only £49.99 for both the software and unlimited course downloads included.”

Once again DMC seem to have taken the initiative in providing GPS to both the golfer and the retailer at a great price.
