SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., June 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- When GolfLogix, the most downloaded app in golf history, introduced printed Green Books in April, they knew golfers would be intrigued. But the overwhelming response to GolfLogix's Green Books—which combine cutting-edge green contour data with detailed 3-D imagery—has surpassed even the company's expectations.
In just one month since release, Green Books by GolfLogix has become one of the hottest new products in golf – and it is now the ideal Father's Day gift for golfers everywhere. Golfers have already received rules-compliant Green Books for more than 2,000 top courses in 49 states, with more than 350 new courses being ordered each week.
Using cutting-edge technology to map out the contours of every green with accuracy down to half an inch, GolfLogix has an unprecedented catalogue of more than 14,000 courses, available for only $40 a course – a fraction of the price of the green-reading maps that professional and college golf teams use.
"We had this idea to create an unparalleled, custom course-specific book that would help golfers read greens quickly and accurately while still following the rules of golf," President of GolfLogix Pete Charleston said. "While we were always certain that it would fill a serious void for everyday golfers, the success and level of positive feedback we have received, has been beyond even our greatest expectations."
Green Books by GolfLogix can be found at store.golflogix.com, or on GOLF.com. If you order by June 17, 2020, GolfLogix will deliver the custom-printed Green Books of your choice in time for Father's Day on June 21, 2020.

The Green Books by GolfLogix Difference
The topographical guides include three views of every hole. Quick-view heat maps outline the green's undulations and provide large, easy-to-see arrows which help golfers identify the areas to avoid when planning approach, pitch, and chip shots. Using these amazing course management features helps bring confidance to pressure putting where strokes are lost. A second, close-up perspective of the green highlights the subtle changes in elevation and direction that are often undetectable to the naked eye. Combined, the maps help make every putt read quick and simple, and virtually eliminate the 3-putt.
This printed guide also features yardage book-quality color images of every hole with 50-yard grids to help plan your tee shots and avoid the major hazards. Green Books mimic the GolfLogix app's Approach Mode, allowing golfers to strategically target positions on the green for their best opportunity of draining their putt.
The $40 GolfLogix Green Books can be purchased at store.golflogix.com.
