Are you looking for an alternative to an expensive GPS device for your golf game without sacrificing key features?
GolfLogix has just the thing for you. Instead of carrying around an extra device and remembering to charge it before you head to the golf course, you can simply download the GolfLogix App to your smartphone.
The GolfLogix App is free and easily downloaded to more than 60 smartphone models for 32,000 golf courses worldwide. It provides accurate distances to points throughout the hole, yardage-book quality imagery, scorekeeping, logged club tracking to produce a mapped history of every hole and aerial flyovers just like you see on TV.
As GolfLogix explains on its website, there are two levels of membership:
The Free Club Membership and the $19.99 Annual Champion Membership.
The free GolfLogix Club Membership includes GPS yardage to the Green Center, yardage book quality aerial imagery of each hole, score & stat tracking, 4 player scorecard and storage of all your rounds in the Member Clubhouse at GolfLogix.com. These features are available to use on 30,000+ mapped golf courses.
When becoming a free Club Member, you will also get two free rounds to try all of the Champion Member features. After completion of the two free Champion Member rounds you will have the option to upgrade and "Become a Champion Member" or "Continue as a Club Member."
The annual Champion membership features are valued at over $39.95, but you can join today for only $19.99. Champion Members get all of the Club Member features listed above as well as precise GPS measurements to the front, center and back of the green, pin positions, distance to all hazards and layups, target distances to any point on the imagery, hole flyovers, patented club tracking and plotting, view of your club ranges on top of the hole imagery, calorie counter, and digital yardage book notes that you can place and store on each hole. No other distance measuring device or app can match the feature set, pricing and high-quality standards of GolfLogix.
