Whether your dad golfs religiously every week or just occasionally with his work buddies, he's going to love playing around with his SkyCaddie. In fact, it will give him an excuse to go golfing more often and he'll have you to thank for that.
There's a reason SkyCaddie is ranked #1 in rangefinders for golfers everywhere. These top of the line GPS rangefinders can give you real-time distance and information on any golf course in the world. They range from about $120-300 depending on the model you choose so you can find a SkyCaddie in your price range with the features that your dad will love.
SkyCaddie takes all of the mystery out of your golf game and allows amateurs and pros alike to own their game. And let's face it; they are also awesome to play around with.
If your dad still hasn't broken into the world of Smartphones, it's time to bring him into 2011. If he has one already, maybe it's time for an upgrade. Smartphones today bring us more than ever before and you can now check emails, browse the Internet, watch videos, text at lightning speed and more. You can even get Smartphones with prepaid or pay-as-you-go plans if you don't want to deal with a commitment or contract. An updated Smartphone makes the perfect daddy-gift.

How cool is that?
