One GPS for geocaching and golf?

We're pretty new to geocaching (love it) but are getting a little frustrated. We're using a TomTom One and would like to by a handheld GPS to use, but my husband would also like to be able to use it for golf. Are there GPS devices that can do both? Is it just a matter of software to download?

Thanks,

Laura

They don't make a GPS yet that includes both course firmware and anything you could use for geocaching. Bummer for me, I have two different cache series placed around golf courses!

A friend of mine uses a Magellan Gold when he's on the links. With the tees, holes, bunkers, etc. waypointed the GPS lets him know how far he is from any feature at any lie. Apparently it's possible to get the coordinates for golf course features from Google Earth but I've never tried.
