Launch of GolfPlus GPS

12.30am 5th February 2003 - Corporate

British based GPS company, GolfPlus, have been swamped with enquiries and overwhelmed by the response they have received following their launch at January’s BTME ClubHouse Exhibition in Harrogate.

“We are delighted by the levels of enquiries we had at the show,” commented Colin Surman of GolfPlus, “particularly as it was the first time we had exhibited. We were also encouraged by how many clubs were planning to expand their buggy fleets for the coming season and how they are increasingly seeing golf buggies as a source of profits.”

GolfPlus’s buggy GPS system adds a new dimension to a golfer’s buggy round and. in the process, drives greater demand for buggies promising golf professionals new revenue opportunities from their buggy fleets.

“As a British designed and manufactured product, we are able to guarantee our customers the very best in service and support,” added Surman. “We work closely with regional and national buggy distributors to make sure that we can offer the same or next day part replacements and, in doing so, minimising the impact on the golf operation.”

Already in use at courses across the UK and Europe, GolfPlus is fast establishing itself as the golf professional’s GPS system of choice. At Buckinghamshire’s Magnolia Park Golf Club, head professional Jeremy Dale commented, “we’ve never had so much demand for buggies from our members and guests. GolfPlus has created new revenue streams from our buggy fleet and we have now expanded our fleet from 7 to 17 buggies as a result.”

The GolfPlus GPS system consists of a high-resolution colour display monitor which is unobtrusively mounted at the front of the golf buggy and is also powered by the buggy. As the buggy approaches each tee, the relevant information is automatically displayed on the monitor: providing hole number, length, par and stroke index as well as a brief description of the hole and points to note. After teeing-off GolfPlus provides an image of the hole being played, together with the yardage from ball to green – in effect it’s an electronic course guide.
