SkyPins Takes SkyCaddie(R) Mapping to a New Level

RIDGELAND, MS, June 2, 2022… SkyGolf®, maker of SkyCaddie®, the most-trusted rangefinders in Golf, has opened up its exclusive golf course database with the launch of its new SkyPins service.
SkyCaddie, which has the world’s largest library of ground-mapped greens and fairways, has made SkyPins available to all U.S., Canadian and U.K. golf clubs following a successful three-year trial with the PGA of Great Britain & Ireland tournament directors.
SkyPins enables golf club managers, golf course superintendents and tournament directors to produce accurate printed daily color pin or zone sheets for their facility or event.
For an even better experience, golfers can also use Wi-Fi to download the day’s pin locations to their SkyCaddie, giving them exact yardages to the flag on every hole – even for blind shots or from behind trees.
SkyPins, which is powered by SkyCaddie’s TruGround on-foot course mapping and patented IntelliGreen® technology, also gives exact green shapes, mapped on foot to sub-yard accuracy, as well as greenside hazards.
Chris Joyce, Head of Tournament Operations for the PGA of GB & I, said: “A SkyCaddie gives players more information than a sole distance to the pin, and we place great value on our long-standing partnership with them. Their latest innovation, SkyPins, now creates an enhanced tournament experience for PGA GB & I Professionals who participate in the Association’s national schedule.
“It is a fantastic service, very easy for golf clubs to use, and you can personalize the pin sheets according to the name of the competition that day. All players get a color pin sheet including info about greenside penalty areas and bunkers, and those with SkyCaddies can also synchronise their devices to view the tournament pin positions before each day’s play – thus getting an electronic version of the pin sheet on their SkyCaddie screen.
“The PGA of GB & I already uses SkyCaddie’s ground-mapped data when setting the pin positions for National events, so by using SkyPins on their SkyCaddie they are directly downloading the work done by our PGA tournament staff.”
Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf’s Senior VP and COO, said “Trials with the PGA GB & I have been very successful. We have also been using SkyPins with the Legends Tour in Europe, where over 60% of the field now use a SkyCaddie for their yardages and download the pins daily.
“The beauty of adding the tournament’s daily pin location to the SkyCaddie’s Intelligreen, is that the player now has all the green information he needs. Pro Front, Back and Pin location, all rotating to the player’s angle of attack. The pin location can then be moved or adjusted to give the player the best shot into the green. Tour players are rarely playing directly at the pin but rather a section of the green allowing them the best chance to sink the putt. Hence the players on the Legend Tour find the SkyCaddie so valuable in their game.
“We are excited that we can now make SkyPins available for all golfers and are looking forward to welcoming U.S., Canadian and U.K. golf clubs on board with this game-changing service.
“We have also added a feature to the Pin sheets where a golf facility could sell advertising sponsorship to the printed daily pin sheets or provide corporate golf events with a more personalized touch.”
Steve Winstone, who heads up SkyCaddie’s UK & European golf course mapping teams, said: “SkyCaddie mappers have walked hundreds of thousands of golf holes worldwide, using survey-grade GPS equipment to produce incredibly accurate golf course maps.
“Only SkyCaddie continually does this by revisiting, on foot, a significant number of golf facilities each year to ensure our maps are up to date.
“If a golf club offers SkyPins to its members and visitors, it is giving them the best of both worlds – beautifully detailed and accurate, printable pin sheets and accurate distances to today’s pins, as well as a huge amount of additional distance information only available from SkyCaddie.”
