The TOUCH features a glove-friendly, easy-to-use, easy-to-read touchscreen with Bluetooth connectivity to provide golfers with the ultimate user experience and convenience when coupled with a FREE Smartphone app.

The new SkyCaddie TOUCH comes preloaded with 34,000 “best-in-class” courses, ready-to-play, worldwide and is Bluetooth-enabled. The TOUCH features a hi-resolution, sunlight readable, color display that amplifies the superiority of SkyCaddie’s preloaded maps over its competition.

When paired with our new SkyGolf complimentary mobile app, golfers can use Bluetooth to upload scores and stats and download course updates “onDemand” via most Smartphones including iOS and Android without finding a cable. The onDemand feature delivers enhanced definition course data and keeps course maps updated with the very latest changes that are missed with preloaded course databases.

The precision and high-definition details of SkyCaddie course maps allow golfers to use a new “precision zoom” feature to magnify any area of the course without losing details and readability.

Golfers can also measure shot distances for any club, count steps, keep time on pace-of-play, and score for multiple players.

In addition to the 34,000 preloaded courses with “best-in-class” resolution, golfers can also download and store up to 100 course maps in much higher HD graphics than any competitive device with its new “onDemand” feature. Having immediate access via Bluetooth and smartphones to these HD courses is like stepping up from standard definition TV in 480p to HD 1080p TV.

“The launch of the TOUCH provides golfers with simplicity and the latest technology to improve their experience on the course,” stated said Jacqui Surman, Senior Vice President International Sales & Marketing, SkyGolf.. “It allows golfers to take full advantage of our proprietary TrueGround high-precision maps by simply touching the screen to easily zoom in and out to find exact distances, hazard information, carries and layups from any location, providing golfers with even more confidence on every shot. And, we have solved the issue of preloads being out-of-date with our new ”onDemand” feature.”

Added Surman, “At SkyGolf, we pride ourselves in providing the most advanced technology and the most accurate and reliable distance information to golfers of all skill levels around the world. The introduction of the TOUCH gives golfers access to the most state-of-the-art rangefinder in golf and demonstrates our continuing commitment to help golfers play smarter, play better, play faster and have more fun.”

SkyCaddie TOUCH Technology

TrueGround Course Maps - Not all course maps are created equal. Only SkyCaddie walks every course with professional-grade survey equipment to eliminate known errors found in all other course map libraries. You can be sure that the ground-verified distances a SkyCaddie Touch Rangefinder gives you are the most accurate numbers in the game.

IntelliGreen Technology - SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen technology displays the exact shape of the green from your angle of approach to turn every shot into a scoring opportunity. Get front carry, back of green distances, depth of green, and move the crosshairs with a touch of a finger to dial into the pin or any point on the green. Most TrueGround Course maps also include IntelliGreen Pro to add distances to major contours and false fronts with the simple touch of a finger.

TrueGround Target List - The TrueGround Target List provides golfers with the critical distances needed to hazards, carries and layups – located ahead from your position on the hole. Golfers can scroll through the TrueGround Targets manually with the touch of a finger, or let the SkyCaddie automatically update the list of targets as the golfer moves down the fairway. The TrueGround Target List also calculates and displays the “Leaves” distance to the Green Centre from the highlighted target.

Interactive HoleVue with Zoom - With an eagle’s view of the entire hole, golfers will get the distances needed to avoid hazards and play smart golf from tee to green. Using the touch of a finger, measure to any point on the hole whether a golfer can see ahead or not.

RangeVue Technology - Dynamic RangeVue overlays multiple yardage arcs on fairway landing areas and greens to allow golfers to quickly select the best club for every shot.

PinPoint Technology - Add pin positions and enjoy all of the advantages of the best GPS and get distances to the hole without the hassles and limitations of aiming a laser, TOUCH is also SkyPin-enabled, meaning that TOUCH users will be able to take advantage of SkyGolf’s new SkyPin technology – which gives golfers automatically-adjusted distances to that day’s pin positions – when SkyPin arrives at their golf course.

Digital Scoring and Stats - Track scores for every round with the SkyCaddie’s Digital Scorecard, plus see key stats like Greens In Regulation, fairways hit and total putts with ease. Sync with SkyCaddie’s online community or the SkyGolf mobile app for the most comprehensive round analysis in the game.

Hands-Free Automation – Adding simplicity with intelligent automation, the SkyCaddie Touch has been designed for virtually hands-free operation. Its Auto-Course Recognition knows which course the golfer is on and automatically loads that course so it’s ready to play. Auto-Hole Advance lets golfers move freely from hole to hole without having to manually press buttons before swinging. Auto-Distance Display keeps track of the golfer’s location on the course and automatically displays yardages from each position, and AutoView allows golfers to quickly view HoleVue, IntelliGreen and the Digital Scorecard with a simple turn of the wrist!

The new SkyGolf app is available for iOS and Android smartphones and tablets. The suggested retail price of the new SkyCaddie TOUCH is £329.95 and includes a 30-day satisfaction guarantee. For more information on the SkyCaddie TOUCH and trade-in programs, please visit
