Sorry Folks! As of Jan 2012 Greenfinder was bought out by GolfLogix! Another small business bites the dust!!
Ok… We don’t normally write reviews like this, and no it’s not satire. Since its spring, and I have to believe we have some golfers in our readership, I could not resist passing this along. If you are not a golfer… sorry.. just nuke this post and I beg your humble forgiveness.
I thought you might be interested in turning your “smartphone” into a GPS Golf Rangefinder if you haven’t already purchased a standalone GPS range finder. I have been using this Greenfinder service now for about 2-3 years and today they sent me a notice to help promote their product. Sure there is something in it for me… they give me an extra month on my subscription but I figured, what the heck, maybe someone out there who golfs might want to try this and also save themselves several hundred dollars on yet one more electronic device that you have to carry around with you on the golf course and keep charged up! These guys use your existing BlackBerry, iPhone 3G, Droid, Palm Pre and download a great GPS service for golfers to it to use on the course. If you have any of these cell phones this is really worth checking out, a whole lot less expensive than mainstream products, and damn accurate for the amateur golfer!!
It shows you the distance to the greens and hazards on the golf course and much more. They have a free trial. The company that provides this service started it a few years ago and the big guys are catching on so they need to do some promotion. Golf Logix, Sky Caddie and others can out spend them in advertising and charge you more for virtually the same functionality!
It’s only $35/year after a free trial, but with the code below you can save $5 off their purchase price. The free trial period sold me on it after using it in real time! The details about downloads, courses and all that extra stuff is on their website.
Just enter the following code into the promo-code field on their purchase page for the discount and share the code with your friends:
Go here to get more information and a 5 round free trial and make sure to use your Promo Code above for a discount:
If you play golf, have one of the above cell phones, and have not already invested a few hundred on a GPS range finder you should check this out… at least the free trial anyway!! Spread the word and the code !
