GPSi Europe is busier than ever. It has recently agreed six new installations of their uniquely powerful HDX Inforemer system, and three of these break new ground and territory for the market leader in Eastern and Central Europe.

Ukraine’s first GPS installation: The Superior GC
The Superior GC, a new nine hole golf club and course near Kharkov and designed by Greg Norman, is the first club in the Ukraine to be installing the HX Inforemer system. Alex Stepanov, the club’s representative thinks the new HDX’s graphics are superb, and really likes the food ordering feature that he believes will prove popular with all the people who play this exciting new golf club.

GPSi Europe’s first in Germany: Bad Waldsee GC
Germany is fast on the way to becoming a golfing Mecca, with 160 new courses either built, being built or planned to be built. The club that is providing a first for GPSi Europe is Bad Waldse. This is a huge development, boasting not only two 18 hole golf courses, but a nine hole short course and a hotel as well.

Golf Manager Alan Hogg already knows the HDX is proving very popular with his members and visitors: “On such a large complex, we need to keep track of the carts and the players as best we can, and the HDX’s cart-tracking system is perfect for this, and helps avoid using valuable staff to chase after the golfers. The golfers just love the eagle view flyovers and this with the distance information really helps them to plan their way around the course”.

GPSi Europe’s first in Austria: Gran Tirolia GC, Kitzbuhel
The last of this ground-breaking trio of new installations for GPSi Europe is their first club in Austria, Gran Tirolia. This club, located near to the high profile skiing resort in Kitzbuhel. The course is owned by Yelena Baturina, Russia’s richest woman according to Forbes, and her husband.

GPSi Europe have installed a complete WiFi system with 50 HDX Inforemer units onto their cart fleet. The HDX enables all their guests to have a much higher level of enjoyment and allows the club to manage pace of play issues through cart tracking as well as offering an on-course food and beverage service.

“The only GPS system worth looking at…”
Phil Lewin of GPSi Europe is delighted with his team’s achievements: “More and more owners and developers are talking to us about our market-leading GPS system. They can see for themselves what it can do, and quickly realise what it can mean for their sales revenues, and as a point of difference with the local clubs.”
