SkyCaddie GPS maps some of world’s best

8.09am 7th April 2008 - Corporate

SkyCaddie GPS, the official rangefinder of the PGA, has just completed mapping some of the world’s most famous golf courses – including 2010 Ryder Cup course Celtic Manor and 2011 Open Championship venue Royal St Georges.

With more than 2,100 courses now mapped in Europe and having become the PGA’s official distance measuring device, SkyCaddie starts the summer seeking to strengthen its position as the world’s leading GPS rangefinder.

In recent weeks the company’s ‘course enablers‘ – the team of professional mappers who walk every inch of a course to create a bespoke SkyCaddie GPS footprint – has also mapped The Duke‘s, Duchess’s and Marquess’s courses at Woburn; the Old Course and Cashen Course at Ballybunion; and the flagship Majlis Course and Nick Faldo-designed Wadi Course at The Emirates Golf Club, Dubai.

And The Belfry, Wentworth and all 12 courses at Turkey holiday hotspot Belek – including the Montgomerie Course at Papillon Golf Club – have also been painstakingly measured.

SkyCaddie has now mapped 80% of the UK’s courses, with the aim of reaching 90% by the end of May.
