GolfBuddy PT4 hits UK

GB

If you like to have a host of technology at your disposal on the course, giving you that added edge, then GolfBuddy’s PT4 GPS is worth checking out.

The PT4 builds on the success of its predecessor, the GolfBuddy Platinum, which was twice named the best golf GPS system in the UK.

With the introduction of the PT4, GolfBuddy has included many updates, including giving golfers the largest screen in the GPS Golf market and a host of other functions.

GolfBuddy PT4 technology

Pinch & Zoom Hole View

After touching the small + icon at the side of every hole view, you can zoom in and out by ‘pinching’ the screen.

Width & Depth of Green

The width and depth of green is always shown directly from the golfer’s angle of approach, giving them a truer picture of what lies ahead.

EasyView Distance Arcs

Distance arcs from the tee and to the green are labeled giving visual distance reference points.

” GolfBuddy PT4 has access to over 8,000 courses in Europe and North Africa and over 37,000 globally.”

Fixed Lay-up Point setting

You can select a point on any hole and the ‘blue pin’ will give a distance to that point. This is especially useful if you hit a bad shot and still want to reach that chosen point. It remains in place and doesn’t have to be reset.

Auto, Sequential, Manual hole settings

The PT4 will always pick up any hole in Automatic mode. But on tight courses, where its sensitivity may ‘switch’ holes if the golfer gets wayward, selecting Manual means the golfer can select each hole as they play it. In Sequential mode the unit will stay on a hole until the green is reached and then automatically move to the next tee.

Moveable Pin Placement

Golfers can touch and drag the flag to any point on the green to get a true sense of the green.

Safe Storage Mode

When in the golfer’s bag, the GolfBuddy PT4 can be turned ‘face-in’ in the free bag mount provided. This prevents it being banged or scratched. Smooth-on screen protectors are also supplied.
