State-of-the-art technology allures golfers to Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club with the promise to lower golfers’ scores and provide access to Wi-Fi internet, real-time sports, news, and more

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, - March 16, 2004 – Mayfair Lakes Golf and Country Club, British Columbia’s world-class, 18-hole, Les Furber-designed golf course in Richmond is kicking off the 2004 season with greater fanfare than usual. The kick-off includes the launch of Inforemer, the flagship product designed and developed by GPS Industries, Inc. (GPSI - OTC BB: GPSN, Germany: Berlin and Frankfurt WKN#: 252179). Mayfair Lakes is the first golf course in Canada to offer a full management GPSI system.

“We are extremely pleased to offer this new technology due to the tremendous benefits it brings to our members and guests,” commented J.J. Belanger, General Manager of Mayfair Lakes. “With Inforemer and 200 acres of Wi-Fi coverage our members and guests can access the internet or e-mail, order food & beverages to be delivered right to their location, and get the latest scores via real-time sports ticker by the use of wireless laptop or PDA anywhere on the course or in the clubhouse. It’s truly amazing.”  

With the towering backdrop of the North Shore Mountains, Mayfair Lakes offers country ambiance only 20 minutes away from downtown Vancouver.  The 6641-yard championship course challenges golfers by virtue of the numerous lakes and waterways that need to be navigated on 13 of its 18 holes - a perfect place to showcase Inforemer’s brilliant color screen displays and all the benefits it brings to the golfer’s experience.

GPS Industries is a leading developer and provider of global positioning golf course and sports solutions who has introduced a set of industry firsts in products and functionality this year. The Inforemer is now positioned as a total business solution for course managers, recognizing a paradigm shift in the industry and shattering the perception of GPS primarily as a distance tool.

The company’s impressive array of product enhancements includes the industry’s first color handheld GPS mobile display unit. GPSI also recently announced a real-time streaming media partnership with CBS Sportsline; the industry’s most comprehensive tournament management and leaderboard solution; and the introduction of InforeZone™ Wi-Fi HotSpots.  In addition, GPSI is the industry’s only provider to offer a mix-and-match solution including handheld and cart mounted GPS units, and the only provider with multiple language capabilities.

“Mayfair Lakes Golf Club is fast becoming a world-class showcase for the Inforemer,” commented Blake Ponuick, VP of Sales and Marketing for GPS Industries.  “We are exceedingly fortunate to have Mayfair Lakes, J.J., and his team positioned geographically close to our corporate offices. They are a joy to work with – we couldn’t have picked a better partnership.”
