Greenbooks: Three Things To Know Before Purchasing

MGreenbooks or golf yardage books are a great way to help golfers understand more about the course that they are playing. However, when using a golf greenbook, you must understand what you are doing and also what you are purchasing. There are plenty of options out there, and you could end up with something less than helpful for your game. Here are the most important things to keep in mind before purchasing greenbooks. 

1) Not All Golf Courses Are Available (But they can be!)

The first and more critical part of this process is to choose which course you need a greenbook for. There are thousands of golf courses available, and more are coming out each and every day.

With the Green Books by Golf Logix, you can get custom yardage books printed in color for any golf course you play. If your course is not currently available, simply let the team at Green Books know, and they will be sure to map it out and provide it to you.

Keep in mind that sometimes there is additional availability for digital versions even if the print is not available. 

2) Choice Between Digital and Print Options

With the Green Books from Golf Logix, you can get either a print or digital version of your yardage book. The print version is meant to be put into a yardage book holder and carried around in your pocket or golf bag.

With the digital version, you can load the book up on your phone and see the way each of your putts is going to break.

One of the great things about the Green Books in the digital format is that they will adjust based on where you are standing, and you can turn the phone to help make it a bit easier for you to read the putt in front of you. In addition, having the color on the phone or the print version also helps make reading these Green Books considerably easier. 

3) There Is A Learning Curve

The third thing to remember before you purchase a golf greenbook is that it may take a little time to fully take advantage of what the greenbook has to offer. With a GreenBook, expect to have a guide that outlines your entire hole, showing yardage from the tee and into the green.

 In addition, all hazards will be clearly laid out in an easy-to-read visible format.

There are also two versions of the green showing you a heat map with optimal landing areas and a putt break map that can give you some idea s to the slope you are dealing with. Essentially there is a lot of information to take it! 


If you are ready to take your golf game to the next level and you want to truly understand and master the courses you are playing; a greenbook is the perfect way to do it. The product works well if you are playing a course for the first time or if you are a member of a club and play the same course over and over again.
