GolfLogix announces debut of 'The Pro Shop, Powered by Golfsmith'

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- GolfLogix - the No. 1 App for Golf and a global leader in GPS and club-tracking technology - has launched a partnership with Golfsmith to provide members with exclusive product offers, both in-app and in the online clubhouse, on the leading retailer's expansive collection of equipment, apparel, footwear and accessories.

GolfLogix Champion members are additionally rewarded with a $20 digital coupon and free ground shipping on their first Golfsmith Pro Shop purchase greater than $75 - essentially covering the cost of the upgraded Champion membership. This move furthers the leadership position of GolfLogix, which delivers precise GPS data, patented club tracking, Tour-quality stat keeping, instruction and, now, a fully immersive shopping experience.

"This partnership makes it a no-brainer for Club members to elevate to Champion level, because the in-app $19.99 upgrade is immediately covered by the $20 discount on their first Golfsmith Pro Shop order more than $75," says Pete Charleston, President of GolfLogix. "Whether within the app or through the online clubhouse, our members can immediately re-stock with incredible monthly deals only accessible to the GolfLogix community."

All membership levels include access to the GolfLogix Member Clubhouse, the No. 1 online golf community where millions of players interact through social forums, offer challenges to fellow golfers and maintain an indexed handicap. Personal web pages for each user also store performance statistics, so every round can be analyzed by fairways hit, greens in regulation, putting, shot trends and more.

"This strategic partnership is another example of our aggressive push into mobile," said Jamey Maki, Golfsmith Online Director. "Through our partnership with GolfLogix we are now able to interact with an entirely new audience both on and off the course."

Easily downloaded from www.GolfLogix.com, the free GolfLogix GPS app is compatible with more than 60 smartphone models. It provides accurate distances to the center of the green, yardage book quality imagery of each hole, scorekeeping and in-round pro-level stat tracking for nearly 30,000 courses worldwide. For less than $20, an upgraded annual Champion membership provides golfers with club tracking and distances to any location on the hole - including pin position, hazards and landing zones.
