SkyCaddie amnesty pays £50 for old GPS or lasers

There’s an amnesty in UK golf pro shops until May 31 – and a £50 bounty for consumers bringing in an old laser or GPS golf rangefinder.

SkyCaddie are so convinced that their 2016 GPS devices are the best on the market that they are offering £50 off a new SkyCaddie if you trade in an old GPS or laser at the same time, even if the old one is broken.

Your trade-in device doesn’t even have to be a SkyCaddie, explains James Holmes, the firm’s UK & European Sales Manager.

“You’ll get the £50 off no matter what brand you trade in” he said. “This is a limited-time amnesty for UK golfers which applies to any make of golfing laser or GPS device which you don’t use any more, even if it doesn’t work! There’s simply no substitute for a SkyCaddie if you want the latest golf course maps.”

To complete the trade-in, golfers simply hand over their old device and complete a Return Form in the pro shop, to receive a £50 discount on any new SkyCaddie. They can also complete the trade-in online at www.newskycaddie.com/amnesty with Promo Code AMNESTY50. The trade-in also enables UK golfers to receive £50 off a brand-new SkyPro, SkyCaddie’s popular personal swing analysis device.

“With rangefinders now permitted in most competitive amateur golf, your PGA professional will agree that you’re more likely to play better golf with accurate golf course information,” said Jacqui Surman, SkyGolf SVP, International Sales & Marketing. “If you’ve been on the fence about buying a new golf rangefinder for the coming season, now is the time to do it.”

The £50 trade-in discount only applies to new SkyCaddies purchased during the promotional period, and not to pre-owned, refurbished or open box products. The offer is only open to UK residents and UK shipping addresses. The old traded-in GPS and laser devices will be recycled by SkyCaddie, and are not available for return or onward sale.

Over 35,000 of the world’s golf courses have been measured on foot by expert SkyCaddie mappers using professional GPS surveying equipment, and SkyCaddie returns to re-survey the course every time it makes a change.
