IZZO Golf Swami GPS for Golf Courses

In my city (Greenville, SC), the BMW Charity Pro-Am Golf Tournament is currently going on and while thinking about hitting up the Thornblade golf course, it hit me.

I don’t know how many yards is hole 8, and if hole 14 would be a dogleg left with a par 5, let alone the par for each hole. And history has shown me that I shouldn’t trust the markers on most courses. They can be 10-30 yards off and I should have used a 5 iron instead of a 3 iron.

Heck, the last golf course I had been to was the local one to me down in Charleston, South Carolina and not in Greenville, South Carolina. So even though I’m in the same state but about 220 miles displaced, man I still get lost while driving. Let alone while walking around a strange golf course. And as a man, you know I can’t ask for directions and forget about reading signs. Especially since… well, I just don’t trust them to be accurate.

Enter IZZO’s Swami 1500 Golf GPS.

Izzo Golf is pleased to announce its entry into the GPS market with the new SWAMI 1500. The SWAMI is a simple, fast, and accurate, hand held GPS product that retails for $149.

The SiRFstarIII™ chips and the INSTA-LOK™ Technology quickly display the distance to the Front, Center, and Back of the green. SWAMI holds up to 10 courses at a time and there are over 12,000 courses available.

SWAMI tells all – It offers a large, easy to read display and is very simple to operate. More information regarding the SWAMI is available at www.izzo.com.

SWAMI comes boxed with:

  • Belt Clip
  • Wall Unit Charger
  • USB Cable
  • Quick Start Instructions
  • Setup Disc

For under $150 bucks I can keep my manhood stereotype of never asking for directions alive – even if it seems like the course is a bit longer or shorter than I expected, walk around just about any golf course and seem like I know what I’m talking about and never have to worry about where the 19th hole is at either. I’d be prepared to accurately suss out the amount of yards per hole and the amount of yardage to the green.

The Golf GPS IZZO Swami 1500 handheld is a must have for any golfer and a good early idea Father’s Day. And for a small yearly fee, you can download about 12,000 other golf courses and switch out the ones you’re close to while traveling. In fact, once you power it up on the course, it’ll know what course you’re playing and how far you’ve got to go precisely.

And with other Golf GPS costing $300 and above, it’s a deal.

Yeah, take the hint

Thanks Brian for the information!
