About SkyGolf and the Evolution of the GPS Rangefinder
Centuries ago, golfers would rely on the expertise of knowledgeable caddies to navigate their way around hazards on golf courses. A game designed for two made perfect sense then and makes even more sense now. The most important role of a Caddie is not to carry the golf bag, put to provide critical distance information that allows a Tour Player to focus on more important matters such as shot execution. Unfortunately, professionals are the only golfers to routinely utilize the services caddie provide, placing amateur golfers at a significant disadvantage. Today?s golfer has to do the caddie?s job and focus on their game at the same time. They simply can not do both roles effectively, stay focused on shot execution and play at a reasonable pace. Without a caddie, or the tools ne

Designed for golfers who want advanced capability in a sleek, ultra-light design, the water-resistant SkyCaddie SG2.5 Golf GPS is equipped with the patented IntelliGreen technology, enabling golfers to measure the full depth and shape of the green from any angle of approach, both on or off the fairway. Part of SkyCaddie's exclusive, professional 4-Star SkyCourses, IntelliGreen graphics provide an eagle's eye view of the green with an indicator representing a direct line-of-play from wherever you are on the course.

The SkyCaddie SG2.5 provides easy-to-use, one-handed operation, water resistance for play in all weather conditions, and a brilliant, outdoor-readable display with automatic backlight. Other features include user-selectable display themes, drop-in lithium-rechargeable battery, and up to 14 hours of continuous usage on a full charge.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: Can the SG2.5 give me the distance to the pin?
A: The SkyCaddie, using the IntelliGreen graphics found on our professionally recorded SkyCourses, provides more information than just the distance to the pin. Once the line of play is selected on the graphical green outline, it provides the minimum carry to get on the green, the maximum limit you have to the back of the green, plus you can adjust to obtain the third distance of the approximate flag location. All three distances are provided simultaneously from any direction as you approach the green. You can then frame your shot in a much larger target area and select the best club. You will hit more greens and have shorter putts than a single number can provide.

I like the SkyCaddy SG2.5 GPS rangefinder. I only play a couple of different courses and they are already mapped in the database. I like knowing the prescise yardage to the pin and this is made possible by having the ability to use the cusrsor keys to move the location of the flag placement on the iGreen display.

As much as I like the product, I absolutely abhor, hate, loathe and generally dislike the customer service of SkyGolf. I dropped my unit and broke the LCD display. My fault, ok! So let's get it repaired. Call SkyCaddy and get told by the automated attendant that the wait time is on the order of 65 minutes...whoa!! So jump on line and get their on-line customer service chat thing going, and am told that they can't give me an RMA because I need to call in and talk to a person...uh, excuse me, aren't you a person on the other end of the keyboard??

To date, I still don't have my repaired unit back in my hands.

Bottom line is: Good product, lousy customer service. If I was going to spend my money again knowing what I know now, I would go with the laser range-finder.

I already own a Pinseeker -- that decision being based on the horror stories I've read about SkyGolf's customer service, and about using their website. I ran into one of their guys who was mapping a course,and he assured me that many of those issues had been resolved, and that he was in San Diego to upgrade all the courses to 4 stars -- even the exec par-3s. So I gave it a shot. It didn't work out of the box. The unit wouldn't interface with Windows Vista. I switched to Windows XP and setup/download worked flawlessy. I've only used it for four or five rounds so far, and even dropped it once. It's well built, compact, and operation is reliable -- at least as reliable as one can expect from a GPS-based range finder. The Pinseeker is inherently more accurate, but I do find the gps front/back yardage more useful. It's also much more convenient than the Pinseeker. Whereas with the Pinseeker I'd sometimes avoid usage for speed of play, I just have to glance at the SkyCadie on my bag and always have that extra piece of info. I gave it only 4 stars due to the Windows Vista interface issues, otherwise highly recommend it.

Before you purchase this product you need to be sure you understand their licensing plan for course data. I have used an SG2 for two years and I was very pleased with its performance on the golf course. You can read other reviews that I am sure will testify that it is a wonderful tool to have on the course. I went out today to play for only the second time this year. When I turned the SkyCaddie on, it gave me a message that said my "membership" expired two weeks ago, what would I like to do? I would like to finish my round of golf. It brought up the course as it always did and worked fine for three holes. On the fourth hole it gave me the same message but when I tried to just continue my round of golf I discovered that my "membership" service had just erased all the data on my SkyCaddie!! I paid for the hardware. I paid for the ten courses it allowed me to have in the unit (I was only using four.) The satellites belong to the Government and we can use them for free. But, because I didn't instantly renew my "membership" they erased my course data!! In my mind, this would be like MicroSoft erasing my Windows XP because I didn't upgrade to Vista. I find this to not only be aggravating but also unethical. I play 90% of my rounds on the same course. However, because I do travel a bit, I purchased their $50 membership that covers the United States. Now I find that if all I ever want to do is to play my home course, I will have to pay them $30 every year to do that, even though it is my hardware and I have paid for the course data. I will not renew. I am going to buy a Golf Buddy. They don't even charge you the first time for the course data and there are no annual renewable "membership" fees.

Have used the Sky Caddie for several weeks and find it really a helpful gadget. If you stay in the fairway, and distace markers are visble, it still helps by avoiding the pacing and estimating normally done. And if you're off the fairway, as we often are, it's invaluable. A great item!

My wife gave the SkyCaddie 2.5 to me for Father's Day. It really broke my heart to tell her I needed to return it, but she understood. Here's why...

If I'm not mistaken, SkyCaddie is the only Golf Gps device that continues to have an annual fee. My device cost $259 and the annual fee came to $49.95. I just couldn't see spending that much money every year for something that I can get cheaper. The annual fee really offends me.

This device also lacks in a couple other areas. First, it says that you can keep score. That's true, but once your round is over, the score is lost. You cannot take it home and review your score or upload it onto your computer. Customer Service told me they were looking into providing a way to keep and upload scores, but who knows when that will be.

The other area that disappointed me was the fact that there is no hole overview. At no point can you see the hole in its entirety. So, when I played an unfamiliar course, I would take the Caddie to the tee box to check on hazards, but found myself running back to the cart to check the scorecard for the hole layout - does it dogleg left? Right? How should I position my tee shot?

I found the distances to be accurate, but the annual fee, lack of practical score keeping, and no hole overveiw to be too many negatives to keep it. I will return it (I already had my annual fee refunded) and purchase another GPS unit (that's what brought me here actually - checking reviews for other units).
