Said Andy Bough: “GolfBuddy is a fantastic addition to the portfolio of brands put together under Cactus Brand Partners and I am very excited about managing the growth of the business across the UK.

“The combination of GolfBuddy’s proven product innovation, strong marketing support, and the no-fee pricing model makes GolfBuddy a hugely attractive proposition for all serious specialist golf retailers.”

GolfBuddy was recently appointed as a Preferred Supplier to the Foremost Group and exhibited at The Golf Show in Harrogate.

Said John Ennis, EMEA General Manager for GolfBuddy: “We are thrilled to have someone as experienced as Andy to head up the new sales team. Andy is well known and respected throughout the industry and his knowledge and personal contacts will be invaluable to us in moving our market share in the UK to a much higher level.

“We are committed to driving significant growth in the GPS distance category and we have the platform and product line to do just that. Cactus Brand Partners will no doubt enjoy the challenge and reap the rewards.”

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 – with absolutely no additional after-purchase fees ever.

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.
