SkyGolf bills its new SkyCaddie Breeze as the simplest rangefinder in golf, not to mention its least expensive. The Breeze delivers a virtual sprinkler head, says SkyGolf -- offering golfers front, middle and back-of-the-green distances from anywhere on the course without touching a button or even aiming the device.

The Breeze comes preloaded and is hands-free from the parking lot to the 18th green, and yardages are displayed in big, easy-to-read numbers on a 3-inch, sunlight-readable display. Its features include: Auto Course (finds and loads a course automatically); Auto Hole Advance (advances to the next hole automatically); and Auto Distance (yardages update every second without aiming).

Golfers also can measure any shot, knowing the exact distance they hit their clubs, while enjoying digital scoring at their choosing and much more. And with a turn of the wrist, they can view a jumbo screen with a large number to the green or see their scorecard in landscape orientation.

"The new Breeze addresses the needs of a large segment of golfers who are looking for simplicity and accuracy at a price unmatched in the industry," said SkyGolf CEO Richard Edmonson. "Even more exciting is the Breeze is also upgradable to provide many other game-saving course features and applications that help golfers play even better as their needs and their games grow. This will enable Breeze owners to customize their SkyCaddie to meet their unique needs as golfers without buying a new device or buy features they would not use."

Breeze owners seeking more advanced features such as HoleVue, IntelliGreen, RangeVue and PinPoint can add them via a series of optional upgrade packs and membership choices.

The Breeze carries a suggested retail price of $229.95, and for the remainder of 2012 buyers will receive $250 in Hotel Savings Bucks, which may be used to for savings of up to 40 percent off the guaranteed lowest rate available at more than 15,000 hotel properties worldwide. In addition, members can earn SkyRewards Points and other discounts, and can reduce the price even more by taking advantage of the SkyGolf Trade-In program.
