The traditional paper yardage books just got an upgrade with cutting-edge green contour data that goes in your back pocket for more than 14,000 courses nationwide
SCOTTSDALE, AZ (April 27, 2020) -- GolfLogix, the most downloaded app in golf history, today introduced Green Books, the first easy to read green-reading guide designed and priced for the everyday golfer to “Play Smarter.”
The rules-compliant Green Books combine detailed 3-D imagery, including yardages, with the sophisticated green-contour data that the majority of professional golfers use in competition. With the GolfLogix tour-level intel, golfers can reach into their back pockets and read every putt quickly and confidently to enable lower scores and speed up play.
These durable and water-resistant Green Books are available for more than 14,000 courses at www.golflogix.com.
Professionals and amateurs alike have long relied on printed yardage books to guide their decision-making with confidence. However, the prohibitive cost of mapping the contours of each green down to centimeter accuracy has prevented all but the top courses from gathering this data independently. GolfLogix’s unprecedented catalogue of more than 14,000 courses offers accurate professional insight at a price point fit for any golfer.
The topographical guides include three views of every hole. Quick-view heat maps outline the green’s undulations and provide large, easy-to-see arrows which help golfers identify the areas to avoid when planning approach, pitch, and chip shots. Using these amazing course management features will provide more straight, uphill birdie putts and stress-free pars. A second, close-up perspective of the green highlights the subtle changes in elevation and direction that are often undetectable to the naked eye. Combined, the maps help make every putt read quick and simple, and virtually eliminate the 3-putt.
This printed guide also features yardage book-quality color images of every hole with 50-yard grids to help plan your tee shots and avoid the major hazards. Green Books mimic the GolfLogix app’s Approach Mode, allowing golfers to strategically target positions on the green for their best opportunity of draining their putt.
“With our foundation as a software company, we are uniquely positioned to produce these Green Books with detailed course-specific intelligence that helps golfers read greens quickly and with confidence,” President of GolfLogix Pete Charleston said. “It was important to us to make accurate green-reading maps accessible for the everyday golfer. I’m proud to say golfers can purchase a Green Book for less than it costs to play a round of golf at most courses.“
GolfLogix Green Books give golfers a quick and accurate read without having to walk around the hole, removing the cost of uncertainty by showing exactly how the putt will break on every hole. Putting with the confidence of a quick and accurate read will speed up the game and shaves strokes.
For players who leave their phones in the locker room, a printed Green Book of their favorite course is the perfect way to play strategically without sacrificing the traditional tranquility of the game.
“GolfLogix Green Books give you the same data-filled map of every green that college teams and pros pay thousands for,” said Kellie Stenzel, a GOLF magazine top 100 instructor. “You won’t waste time circling the pin countless times; instead, you’ll discover a new confidence that saves strokes on every course you play.”
The $40 GolfLogix Green Books can be purchased at www.Golfogix.com. PGA Professionals can contact GolfLogix to receive free samples and set up their golf course resale program.
