The Approach S1 is unlike any other golf GPS. It combines a high-sensitivity GPS receiver with a lightweight, flexible colored sport watch to give you distance information to the front, back and middle of the greens for 18,000+ preloaded U.S. and Canadian courses. Players can now have a hands-free solution to measure individual shot distances, track walking the course with odometer and even use the programmable alarm for reminding you of your morning tee time!

The S1 functions as an everyday watch with its sleek, stylish look yet rugged, waterproof design. The screen is viewable in the sunlight and features large numbering for at-a-glance visibility.

It is very unlikely that a course will not be included in the "pre-loaded" list, unless it was built and/or changed after the S1 was released. You may search for the golf course by clicking here. If it is a newer golf course updates are available for free through this site.
