Sky Golf Caddie Rangefinder is touted as the number one rangefinder available. It is made by Sky Golf and uses global positioning system (GPS) to help you have the most accurate data available while on the course. There are many models available and all of them are a great choice.
The main goal of Sky Golf is to provide you access to the same data a professional caddie would provide to a golfer on the PGA tour. Sky Golf believes that you deserve access to the same up to date reliable data professionals wouldn’t dream of playing without. They are the only company that has recorded over 80 million points on over 30,000 golf courses all around the world. They also update thousands of courses annually. Simply purchasing one of these wonderful range finders puts all that data at your fingertips.
What is astounding is that Sky Golf has actually walked each and every course it has mapped. It believes that no professional golfer uses yardage books from a flyover or satellite images. You can have access to the same data the pros are using. Accurate data a human being has physically measured.
They are the official range finder of almost every major golf association including The PGA of America, Canadian PGA, PGA of Great Britain and Ireland, the PGA of New Zealand, PGA of Germany, the PGA of Spain, and the Swedish PGA.
While this rangefinder isn’t the most expensive on the market it is by no means cheap. At $349.95 or $399.95 it is a considerable investment. If you have an older Sky Golf rangefinder you can trade it in for a discount on the newest model. Currently the discount is up to $130. Often there are instant rebates available as well that will apply when you purchase the unit.
