SkyGolf’s product portfolio represents the industry’s broadest and most complete array of e-golf technology to include:
 

A family of SkyCaddie® rangefinders in multiple formats and price points that are pre-loaded and ready-to-play with SkyGolf’s worldwide library of high-precision courses.  
SkyGolf’s Real-time Game Tracking Solution in two formats including a rangefinder watch with both swing detection for automated performance tracking and RFID sensors to support optional SmartTags.
The award-winning SkyPro®, golf’s most powerful and accurate swing sensor for game improvement on the practice range, the office or at home.
SkyTrak, A Personal Launch Monitor, another award-winning product that makes golf simulation for practice, course play and gamification at home affordable for most golfers for the first time. SkyTrak is a revolutionary development in launch monitor technology, offering a complete practice, play and entertainment system for golf at home. It delivers commercial quality ball flight simulations that reflect a golfer’s actual performance for game improvement and entertainment at a price far below alternatives. Golfers can also experience and test their skills with their own clubs at their own pace on thousands of courses to include some of the world’s most famous 18-hole courses through integrations with very popular golf simulator providers such as WGT Golf, The Golf Club, TruGolf, Creative Golf and Fitness Golf. Many new features and improvements will be ready for demonstration at Booth #1301.

At the center of all SkyGolf e-golf products is its SkyGolf 360 architecture providing unmatched wireless connectivity for golfers to upload performance data captured during use of each portfolio product to the SkyGolf 360 Cloud where access to such information for analysis, tracking and sharing via social networks is available immediately via a companion App running on smartphones and tablets, or via a PC.
 
The SkyCaddie® SX500 GPS is SkyGolf’s “20th Anniversary Rembrandt” to celebrate two decades of innovation and pioneering products for golfer improvement.  Key features include:

Golf's most brilliant display featuring a large 5" touch screen
A powerful, ultra-fast multi-core processor for fast response
A ruggedized, highly water-resistant design
Cut the Cord! Wireless connectivity to streamline updates and course downloads on demand. No need to connect to a computer or perform massive updates.
Full HD graphics provide a stunning visual experience
Preloaded with over 35,000 of SkyGolf's ground-verified, error-corrected maps for unmatched accuracy
Super-sized battery for multi-round enjoyment between charges

The SkyCaddie® SX500 comes in a highly water-resistant, rugged design to stand up to most anything that comes its way on the course. With the largest battery in the industry, the SX500 is ready for extended playing time for that emergency 9, or even 18 more holes. Using multi-constellation navigation satellite systems, the SX500 provides enhanced accuracy and overall better performance under tough conditions or tree cover.
 
The powerful features of the SkyCaddie® SX500 are easily tapped with its large 5", intuitive touch screen and a host of automated features such as Auto-Course Selection, Auto-Hole Advance and Auto-Zoom, making it almost "touch-free" from the parking lot to the 19th hole. The large HD display combined with HD quality course graphics, only available from SkyCaddie, provide the best view of the most-reliable information in the game to allow you to play your best golf.
 
Some advanced and exciting new features are debuting in the SX500.  For example, , the powerful processor of the SX500 allows SkyCaddie® to introduce Dynamic HoleVue™, which automatically re-orients the entire golf hole from your position to the green as you progress from the tee.  So, by leveraging SkyCaddie’s patented IntelliGreen® technology, golfers can now see the entire hole from their point-of-view to quickly acquire distances to avoid intervening hazards to plot the best strategy for every shot… only from SkyCaddie!
 
And, the SX500 allows the golfer to track the club, location and distance of each shot in real-time as you play.  You’ll know how far you hit every club in your bag, resulting in better game management and lower scores. Improve your game with detailed, post-round analysis using SkyGolf 360 where all your game data is stored, analysed and displayed in easy to see formats and graphs to track your progress and identify areas for improvement
 
“Since its limited launch late in 2018, we’ve had rave reviews from customers and media alike. We also have 15 players on the European Senior Staysure Tour using the SX500 now, with 2 wins at the end of the 2018 season.”
 
Here are just a few comments from those who have been using the SX500:

“The SX500 talks the language of golf and answers the questions you were about to ask.” – L. Nicoll, first time user
“Playing with the SX500 is like having your own personal caddie in the palm of your hand.” – David Cunninghame, Bunkered magazine
“The SkyCaddie SX500 is a strategic golfer’s dream come true.” – Jon Sherman, Practical Golfer

Each SkyCaddie product pairs via Bluetooth with a companion App to be compatible with the SkyGolf 360 Cloud Service to eliminate cables. All rangefinders are preloaded with SkyCaddie’s worldwide library of error-corrected golf courses to deliver unmatched accuracy and reliability. Only SkyGolf® walks every course with professional survey-grade equipment to create the most complete and most reliable course maps in the game.
 
In summary, SkyGolf’s commitment to innovation has created the largest portfolio of game improvement and performance tracking products in golf to help golfers play better, play smarter and have more fun!  And each product is built around a single platform, SkyGolf 360, to allow golfers to keep all performance data regardless of whether it comes from a rangefinder, a swing sensor, a performance tracker or a launch monitor in one place rather than scattered among various competitors with incompatible platforms.  A single platform is not only to the golfer’s advantage, but it is also to the advantage of a teacher, PGA Professional or reseller to be able to offer all available tools a golfer can need to improve their performance from one source with the confidence their customers are getting the very best solution.  Also, SkyGolf 360 is now available to our commercial accounts who can use it to stay engaged with their students and members to find opportunities to offer their help and services as needed.
