How GPS Golf Units Can Help Your Game

Aug 16, 2008
GPS golf systems are quickly becoming the norm on golf greens all around the world. They are a great benefit to your game, allowing you to have up to date information on the course and course conditions. This information can include electronic maps with advice on hazards, caddy tips (just like a real caddy), weather reports and some GPS gadgets will even track your ball for you.

This information helps a golfer judge the distance between the tee and the hole, how hard to hit the ball and where to avoid water and sand traps. It can even store stats from the players previous games, allowing them to compare and improve their game.

GPS golf units are becoming more and more common.
