GolfBuddy has further underlined its credentials as Europe’s leading handheld golf GPS brand by being chosen as an official GPS product with Golfstore Group.

With over 275 professional shops in Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Netherlands, Germany and Austria- and a catalogue delivered to more than 371,000 golfers – Golfstore Group is the most influential group retailer in mainland Europe.

John Ennis, EMEA General Manager for GolfBuddy, says: “Having just agreed terms with Foremost in the UK, we’re delighted to be working with Golfstore exclusively as well as this gives us tremendous traction in Europe.

“Golfstore like the margins we offer and the fact that there is no risk of a customer being unhappy with the additional download fees or annual subscription charges which are added after purchase by some other brands – GolfBuddy is 100% fee-free.

“The fact that the GolfBuddy World Platinum and World models are multilingual can store up to 40,000 full course maps in their memory and easily switch between yards and metres was also a major factor.

“And Golfstore understand that the technology we use is state-of-the-art – like our 50 channel satellite receiver – so getting a good GPS signal in more remote areas ofEurope  is much more reliable with GolfBuddy.”

Increasing numbers of pro-shop Professionals in Europe are making GolfBuddy their GPS rangefinder of choice as it is the fastest, most powerful and easiest-to-use GPS handset in the world.

Supplied pre-loaded with courses – and capable of storing up to 40,000 courses free of charge – GolfBuddy can be used straight from the box. All golfers have to do is turn it on and the unit automatically recognises which course and hole they are playing.

GolfBuddy is also a Corporate Partner with the PGAE as its ‘official handheld GPS rangefinder’ and was recently used by competitors in the prestigious UNICREDIT PGA Professional Championship of Europe.

An elite field of 60 professionals from the association’s 31 full member countries used GolfBuddy World Platinum GPS rangefinders to plot their way around the stunning course at Pravets Golf & SPA in Bulgaria– in the first ever international professional-only golf tournament to be played in the country.
