Golf has always been a sport in which technology has been embraced, not shunned. At Executive-Golf, we realise that no self-respecting golfer will go out on the green without at least one form of gadget to improve their game and streamline the experience. The SkyCaddie is just one such device, created in order to aid both amateurs and pros alike. So as well as 5-star accommodation and PGA professional coaching, why do we choose to provide our holiday-makers with SkyCaddies too?
The SkyCaddie gets its name from the fact that it uses satellite tracking to help orient the golfer on the course and give them in-depth advice on how to proceed, based on accurate mapping that takes topography and a number of other factors into account. Essentially, it's able to replicate the services of an experienced caddy, but with a much greater range of knowledge, combined with sophisticated GPS technology.
Before your golfing holiday, specialists from Executive-Golf will pre-load the planned courses onto the SkyCaddie so that they're ready and waiting for your visit. The three-inch LCD screen is highly legible, even in bright Portuguese conditions and the full colour display is laid out intuitively to make sure that the initial learning curve is pleasingly shallow.
At Executive-Golf, our aim is to tailor your holiday to be as relaxing and enjoyable as possible. That's where the data-accumulating functions of SkyCaddie really come in handy! Rather than requiring that you keep a record of paper scorecards, which can become very complicated, the SkyCaddie lets you enter in the number of shots it took you to complete each hole and it saves this information for you to look at later, perhaps over a glass of something ice cold back at your Executive-Golf 5-star villa!
SkyCaddie lets you keep a digital record of your performances over a long period of time, allowing you to instantly identify areas in which you have made improvement. It also highlights points that need working on, helping you to focus your practice sessions. Indeed, one of the selling points of an Executive-Golf holiday is the fact that you really should go home a better golfer!
Another way in which SkyCaddie can help you improve your game is by providing you with details about the current remaining yardage between you and the green or your ball and the hole when it comes down to putting. Using this data you can plan your approach, get advice on angles and velocity and even use the SkyCaddie's IntelliGreen feature in order to view a detailed image of the green that you are facing. Using the GPS it will update your position and alter the onscreen image based on your whereabouts, so there is no need to constantly fiddle with menus, as you will get real time updates posted straight to the device.
Without this information you could be left hitting aimlessly in the wrong manner and you will ultimately come away having learned nothing. SkyCaddie helps to take these issues out of the equation, guiding you through each hole and each course so that you can gain vital experience along the way. All this whilst being coached by one of Executive-Golf's team of PGA professionals - what more could a golfer want?
