GolfLogix, the number 1 app in golf, raises the bar once again with new 3D flyover and ‘Plays Like’ features

Adding to GolfLogix’s industry leading GPS technology, two new features arm golfers of all skill levels with even more valuable information designed to lower scores and help users have more fun by playing their best golf

SCOTTSDALE, AZ (August 1, 2022) – GolfLogix, already the world leader in app technology for golfers, once again sets new boundaries with two extraordinary new features: 3D Flyovers, which allows the user to see the shape and elevation of every hole from tee to green; and GPS Distances with Slope which utilizes elevation data for accurate slope distance to any point on the course.

The drone-like 3D Flyover component offers golfers the opportunity to strategize on how to best attack any given hole by allowing users to hit a shot virtually before hitting it for real. A true representation of a ball in flight, using personal club distances for tee shots and then approach shots, allows users to see what lies ahead before they address their ball. The birds-eye flight perspective of the computer-generated renderings mimics the perspective users have become accustomed to during televised golf events.

In another innovation to the ground-breaking GPS based distance capabilities GolfLogix users have come to expect, GPS Distances with Slope takes the guesswork out of determining shot selection and landing areas by using detailed elevation data to show “Plays Like” distances for uphill and downhill shots. The innovative new feature was created by measuring millions of elevation points on thousands of courses worldwide.   

“As part of our core mission, we continually challenge ourselves to break barriers with our capabilities,” said GolfLogix President and Co-Founder Pete Charleston. “With the new dynamic aerial perspectives and even greater detailed elevation and slope measurements we’ve added, GolfLogix users have access to the most advanced data available at over 38,000 courses around the world.”       

As with all existing capabilities on the GolfLogix app, both new features will be available on IOS and Android and can be muted in order to remain compliant with USGA rules.
