Sonocaddie Golf GPS to rollout across Europe

8.26am 7th February 2008 - Corporate

Golfsmith Europe, distributor of Sonocaddie, which is claimed to be ‘the easiest and most advanced personal golf GPS available’, will introduce Sonocaddie to the European golf market this Spring.

Palm-sized and ‘feature laden’, with globally patent pending graphic display, Sonocaddie graphically shows golfers the precise yardage to any spot on the course… green, hazards, trees, up to 15 different targets per hole, plus the distance to the front, centre and rear of any green with the touch of a button, even without a clear line of sight. Sonocaddie also functions as a digital scorecard and accurately measures each shot.

Thousands of courses are on the Sonocaddie web site – – and thousands are being added each year. Sonocaddie owners enjoy free access.

Sonocaddie will also add any course free on request and golfers can very easily add a course while they play. A touch of a button at each target, hazard, or green permanently marks that spot, in less than 3-5 minutes per hole. The Sonocaddie will always know the yardage from that spot. Sonocaddie holds up to 20 courses, and course information can be shared between two Sonocaddies with the included connecting cable and the touch of a button.

Doug Poole, Golfsmith’s managing director states, “It’s amazing to watch the yardage tick down in real time as you walk toward the green. And our exclusive yardage book style graphics are the easiest and most advanced on the market. Sonocaddie is clearly superior to any other personal golf GPS. In fact, we guarantee this amazing technology will help lower your scores and make your round more enjoyable.”

“We plan our official launch with our spring catalogue” adds Poole, “but we’ve begun accepting pre-launch orders now.”
