Where Tradition Meets Technology: 

 

GolfLogix Introduces Printed Green Books to Help Every Golfer Read Greens Like a Pro

 

The traditional paper yardage books just got an upgrade with cutting-edge green contour data for more than 14,000 courses nationwide. 

 

SCOTTSDALE, AR (April 27, 2020) -- GolfLogix, the most downloaded app in golf history, today introduced Green Books, the first easy to read green-reading guide designed and priced for the everyday golfer to "Play Smarter."

 

The rules-compliant Green Books combine detailed 3-D imagery, including yardages, with the sophisticated green-contour data that the majority of professional golfers use in competition. With the GolfLogix tour-level intel, golfers can reach into their back pockets and read every putt quickly and confidently to enable lower scores and speed up play. 

 

These durable and water-resistant Green Books are available for more than 14,000 courses at www.golflogix.com

 

Professionals and amateurs alike have long relied on printed yardage books to guide their decision-making with confidence. However, the prohibitive cost of mapping the contours of each green down to centimeter accuracy has prevented all but the top courses from gathering this data independently. GolfLogix's unprecedented catalogue of more than 14,000 courses offers accurate professional insight at a price point fit for any golfer. 

 

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 which help golfers identify the areas to avoid when planning approach, pitch, and chip shots. Using these amazing course management features 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. Combined, the maps help make every putt read quick and simple, and virtually eliminate the 3-putt.

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," President of GolfLogix 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."

 

GolfLogix Green Books give golfers a quick and accurate read without having to walk around the hole, removing the cost of uncertainty by showing exactly how the putt will break on every hole.  Putting with the confidence of a quick and accurate read will speed up the game and shaves strokes. 

 

For players who leave their phones in the locker room, a printed Green Book of their favorite course is the perfect way to play strategically without sacrificing the traditional tranquility of the game.

 

"GolfLogix Green Books give you the same data-filled map of every green that college teams and pros pay thousands for," said Kellie Stenzel, a GOLF magazine top 100 instructor. "You won't waste time circling the pin countless times; instead, you'll discover a new confidence that saves strokes on every course you play." 

 

The $40 GolfLogix Green Books can be purchased at www.Golfogix.com. PGA Professionals can contact GolfLogix to receive free samples and set up their golf course resale program.

I got one for my favorite course

I just got one of these Green Books for my favorite local course. Now I have to head on over to the course and give it a test run. I think I'll go over there early in the morning and see if they sell the books in the Pro Shop or not. Maybe see if the club teaching pro would like to join me for a test run on a few of the greens to see how much it helps both him and I to read the greens correctly and make better putts. I'll let you know what I find out. 

One really nice thing about these books it they contain a overhead view of the entire hole, from tee to green with yardage markings so you can figure out how far and where to hit your tee shot for the best chance of finding the short grass and having a decent second shot to work with. I plan to check these views with both the course map they have on the score card as well as what I see from the tee box. NOT all score cards show ACCURATE overhead views of all of the holes. Some holes are shown a LOT less bend at the dogleg than the hole really is. ONE hole comes to mind for this issue. The 10 th hole at Aurora Hills. The score card shows a 45 degree dogleg at about 200 yards out from the back tee. But the hole is REALLY a 90 degree dogleg right, NOT 45, so you can't hit a FADE and work the ball around the corner and hope to hit the fairway. Doesn't work. You need to hit a 200-220 yard tee shot to the corner and play your second shot from there. IT's a 540 yard par 5, so it plays as a real life 3 shots to the green for motal golfers.

Don, any time yet to go over

Don, any time yet to go over and test the book?   I want to get one for my home course.  They have 1 of the 2 course, but I admit it's the course I don't play as often.  So I was waiting to see if they'll add the 2nd one and try it first

When I go to test the BGT

When I go to test the BGT Stabiliey putter shaft I will go to the range I have the Green Book for and check out the book at the same time. My plan it to go early in the morning when the back nice is empty so I can get on the 18th green to use the book with on one around to get in the way, or more like ME being in the way of some golfers playing the course. Wlll let you know what I think soon.

As for the course you want a book for, I'd suggest you contact the company and let them know what course you would like a Green Book for and maybe they can get it done for you soon than if you just wait for them to get to that course. Can't hurt to ask them.

I got out yesterday and

I got out yesterday and checked out the Green Book on the 9th hole of the course, as it was right next to the club house and easy to get and NOT get in the way of people playing the course. From what I could see from that one green, it looks pretty good. Green looked to MY eye to MATCH what the book was showing both for slope and grade of the slope. 

What I would say from just this little bit of a test. I can SEE where the book would come in handy for KNOWING (WHERE) to aim your shot into the green. The book shows the bunkers around the green well, and if the green slopes left or right so you can plan to land your shot so it will end up close to the pin. 

I think it would take SOME TIME using the book to get a FEEL for how what I SEE in the green and what the book TELLS me ir does. Might be GREAT when you can NOT see any break in the putt but are NOT sure. Looking at the arrows in the book would help you make a good discussion about the break when you can't decide. Just my opinion so far.
