Shot Scope reflects on 2023 – a year of success

    Shot Scope drive forward into 2024 after recording their greatest year to date with 550+ new accounts/locations added to their growing retail footprint.

    The UK’s fastest growing GPS, rangefinder, and shot tracking technology company has made huge strides in their product line-up with six new releases this year (X5, G5, PRO LX, PRO LX+, PRO L2, and CONNEX), giving golfers more choice and better course management.

    Now available in over 35+ countries worldwide, Shot Scope has seen impressive European expansion, with the addition of Golf’us, GolfHouse, and Golf Experten as retail partners – putting the extensive product line-up in the hands of more and more customers. Dormy and All4golf will also join the official retailers by the end of the year.

    Tripling their footprint in the US with rapid growth through NGBA and various independent in-store and online retailers, the Shot Scope name is becoming more prominent amongst the US golfing market, with nationwide retail coverage. Both the new G5 and PRO L2 have been recognised by MyGolfSpy – the US leader in independent golf reviews and unbiased equipment testing- with PRO L2 claiming the title for most affordable rangefinder and G5 winning the best value golf watch for 2023.

    Despite the expansion of the range, Shot Scope has remained committed to providing their customers subscription free products with access to over 100 different statistics, helping to improve the games of golfers.

    The release of the Academy platform earlier this year has also changed the dynamic of how PGA Pros can connect with their players on and off the course, with enhanced communication and game analytics available. Academy allows coaches to view their students’ stats from tournament and practice play; to help improve the efficiency of lessons and drive feedback for on-course improvements.

    Furthermore, this year, Shot Scope has joined TGI as a partner supplier, as they continue to embark on their long-term goal of expanding and supporting their retail accounts in the UK, EU, and USA.

    Scott Robertson, Head of Sales at Shot Scope, comments:

    “Having already built great relationships with many TGI Partners and PGA Professionals across the UK & Ireland, we believe our product range and business strategy is one that can be of real benefit to everyone. Our products centre around supplying the latest in GPS, Rangefinder, and Shot Tracking technology, which can act as a fantastic revenue tool through retail as well as a seriously beneficial addition to any coach looking to add value to a golf lesson.”

    Eddie Ried, TGI Golf Group Managing Director, adds:

    “We are extremely excited to be working with the team at Shot Scope. They have proved popular among our partners for a long time now, with great products, services, and margins available. Add this to the continued education they provide for retailers, it is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to have Shot Scope on board as a Partner Supplier.”

    Euro Select, amongst other UK independent retailers, also joined Shot Scope’s growing list of UK retail locations in 2023.

    Being a Shot Scope stockist comes with a range of added benefits, including a 35% margin on all products, no MOQ, and a hassle-free ordering process through a dedicated B2B website and account manager. With free point of sale materials, personal use discounts and 60-day payment terms, stockists have an opportunity to expand their retail potential.

    Scott Clark, Head Professional at Prestonfield Golf Club, said:
    “I’ve been working with Shot Scope for a number of years now and always found their customer service and sales team friendly and professional to deal with. Their products continue to be innovative, competitively priced and a consumer favourite in my shop.”
