Florida is the southernmost State of the USA where, for most of the time, the sun shines truly bright. Miami Beach is a narrow island just off the mainland and Miami City is a leisure world of the rich and famous.Coral Gables was built in the 1920's in flamboyant southern Europe style as was the Venetian Pool and the Biltmore Hotel whose tower is a replica of the Giralda in Seville.The Florida Keys are a group of thirty one coral islands that extend from Miami on the southern point of Florida, to the Caribbean. The first and largest is Key Largo made famous by a Hollywood movie that starred Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall. Orlando was founded in 1875 as an agricultural distribution centre and today the biggest entertainment parks in the world are located there and attended by almost forty three million visitors each year.On the east coast of the Florida Peninsula, Cape Canaveral juts out into the Atlantic As far back as 1949 the 'Rocket Trials Zone', as it was then known, was built within an area that has been further developed and extended to become the world famous Space Station it is today. Florida is a truly magical place with something special to offer for one and all!

Bushnell Medalist Bushnell Outdoor Products, makers of the number one laser rangefinder on Tour, released its newest laser rangefinder at the PGA Show in Orlando, Florida. The Medalist is a compact measuring device that will be offered at a lower price point and provide more golfers with the opportunity to know the exact distance on every shot. Like its predecessor the PinSeeker 1500, which catapulted the company to record sales growth in 2006, the Medalist is equipped with PinSeeker technology and will combine pinpoint accuracy and consistency enabling the user to range up to 300 yards +/- one yard to the flag without the use of reflectors. "As our research and development continues to innovate, we are able to provide consumers with PinSeeker technology at a lower price point," said Bushnell Product Manager Jordan Vermillion. "The Medalist is an example of our innovation and we look forward to creating exciting new technologies that will consistently put Bushnell on the cutting edge of this field." Since last year's introduction of the PinSeeker 1500 Tournament and Slope Edition, sales have soared in green-grass and off-course retail shops. Bushnell expects continued success as the Medalist will reach a whole new group of avid golfers. "The Medalist provides an attractive price point for a broader range of the golfing public," said Jason Seeman, Golf Sales Manager at Bushnell. "Bushnell continues to offer golfers seeking premium high-end products with the PinSeeker 1500 rangefinders, which are capable of ranging distances from five to 1,600 yards." Weighing just 9 oz., the Medalist is 1.7" x 4.5" x3.8" in size and is ready to be used right out-of-the-box, allowing it to be played at 100% of the courses around the world without the need for reflectors.
