Digital Caddies Inks Pact to Extend Services with PGA National Golf Resort & Spa

Dec 17, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) -- Digital Caddies, Inc. announced that they have recently signed an agreement to extend services with the PGA National Golf Resort located in Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.

According to a release, the Agreement calls for an extension of services that Digital Caddies has been providing over the last several years. The PGA National, with its 5 tour worthy champion golf courses, has also expressed a strong interest in becoming one of the first nationally recognized PGA golf courses to install and utilize Digital Caddies' wireless tablet based service slated to launch in early 2013.

As previously reported, with approximately 20,000 golf courses in North America and over 30,000 worldwide, Digital Caddies has positioned the company to be first to market with its new tablet based GPS service, the company said. The new service will provide rich streaming content and real time distance information to the golfer while also providing valuable information and services to the golf course. Digital Caddies' newest service will also incorporate the ability to communicate with others on the course, post to social media outlets, create dynamic leaderboards for scoring, call the beverage cart, interact with the golf course officials and much more.

Golf courses will also see many benefits by being able to monitor the location of all golf carts on the course and having the ability to communicate with golfers directly will allowing for better control and significant improvement in the pace of play, the company added. This ability for a golf course to influence the pace of play through the tablet and other key features will be an invaluable tool towards increasing the profitability of a course.

Brad Nightingale, Digital Caddies CEO, stated, "We are extremely pleased with the recent extension of services with the PGA National Golf courses. Our communication with PGA National, in regards to the potential implementation of our latest tablet based service, has been very positive and we feel these courses possess the ability to be an excellent launching platform for our technology on a nationally recognized scale."
