GolfLogix, touted as the most downloaded app in golf history, has introduced Green Books, which it calls the first “easy to read’’ green-reading guide designed and priced for the everyday golfer to “Play Smarter.”
GolfLogix says the rules-compliant Green Books combine detailed 3-D imagery, including yardages, with green-contour data that the majority of professional golfers use in competition.
These durable and water-resistant Green Books are available for more than 14,000 courses at www.golflogix.com.
GolfLogix says 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 that help golfers identify the areas to avoid when planning approach, pitch, and chip shots. Using these course management features, the company says, 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.
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,” GolfLogix President 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.”
