Master the Course with the TomTom Golfer

Johannesburg, 3 December, 2014 -TomTom today launches the all new TomTom Golfer, a GPS sports watch designed to make it easy for golfers to improve their game.  Unique course graphics clearly show accurate distances to hazards and layups, and the best approach to the green. 

The TomTom Golfer uses graphics to clearly show key golf course data from more than 34,000 golf courses across the globe on its extra-large screen.  Course updates are delivered wirelessly via a unique smartphone app, so golfers can trust they are playing with the most up-to-date course information.

“Understanding the challenges ahead will help golfers to improve their score” says Daan Hendrickx, Country Manager of TomTom South Africa.  “The TomTom Golfer provides at-a-glance graphics to critical course data helping golfers to make smarter decisions and improve how they play.”                                                                                                    

The TomTom Golfer is designed for golfers, with a lightweight and slim appearance.  It uses GPS technology to automatically recognise nearby courses and find the next hole.  A golfer can also keep track of the score, distance and time of a round.

 The TomTom Golfer is available to purchase at the Nedbank Golf Challenge and available soon at The Pro Shop and Golfers Clubs at a RRP of R3999.99.

About Mapcode Foundation

A Mapcode represents a location. Every location on Earth can be represented by a Mapcode. Mapcodes were designed to be short, easy to recognise, remember and communicate. They are precise to a few meters, which is good enough for every-day use. Mapcodes were developed in 2001 by Pieter Geelen and Harold Goddijn, soon after the GPS satellite signals were opened up for civilian use. It was decided to donate the Mapcode system to the public domain in 2008. The algorithms and data tables are maintained by the Stichting Mapcode Foundation .
