At ProTracGPS, we pride ourselves as the future of Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) yardage systems. In contrast to the commonly used and expensive cart-based GPS yardage systems, ProTracGPS is a stand-alone handheld device that requires no mainframe computer system, special course markers, or permanent mounting on a golf cart to operate.
Because ProTracGPS can be carried using a bag-mount or mounted to a cart, it can be conveniently used by both walkers and riders in a golf course. ProTracGPS was developed using the handheld computer and GPS technologies, and it is powered by proprietary software that connects directly to the global positioning satellites. Hence, ProTracGPS provides a slew of improved features at a fraction of the cost of traditional cart-based GPS systems.
Values & History
In making distance determinations, the golfers must rely on course distance markers that are seldom where the golfer's ball lies. This often slows downplay and can also lead to inaccurate distance determinations.
ProTracGPS was explicitly designed to speed play and eliminate the need to look for course yardage markers and provide accurate distances to the green, sand traps, water hazards, etc. to assist golfers in making club selections.
Annually, there are over 40 billion distance determinations made by more than 26 million U.S. golfers playing 560 million rounds of golf in the U.S. GPS provides golf courses with the opportunity to increase annual revenue by $25,000 to $150,000.
This is possible because of the overall increased speed of play and increase in the per-round greens/cart fees by $1 to $5. With the use of GPS, courses can realize an additional $10,000 to $30,000 annually from increased rounds due to faster play.
