Kedleston Park

I had the pleasure the other day to play Kedleston Park Golf Club near Quarndon in Derbyshire and on the second hole remembered the hand-held Golf Buddy GPS system I carry in my golf bag - identical to that which we're giving away this month for your course reviews.

Golf Buddy Tour GPS

In less than a minute and thanks to its satellite tracking technology, the Golf Buddy had amazingly identified where exactly I was in the world (thankfully in the middle of the fairway) and given me an accurate yardage to the flagstick on a hole they called Abel's Wood. If only it was able to read the slopes of putts, too I wouldn't have walked off with a bogey!

Kedleston Park is one of hundreds of UK courses the Golf Buddy device carries free in its memory without the need to pay extra registration fees to download others.

Both the GolfBuddy Pro (mono) and GolfBuddy Tour (colour screen) are the only distance rangefinders with courses from around the globe pre-programmed into their memory, making it instantly usable straight from the box.

Every unit - worth £300 - is packed with features including automatic course and hole recognition, shot distance measurement, score-tracking for 1,000 rounds, multi-language capability, customised target setting and the ability to store up to 20,000 courses in the memory.

For a chance to win one, all you have to do is write a brief but comprehensive opinion of a course you have played recently - its design, playability and facilities - give it a rating submit it into our review system before August 31.

Enter as many times as you like and remember your observations are greatly valued by those looking for recommendations for a day out, a corporate event or a good value venue for a golf society gathering.
