Uses of a Golf Rangefinder

Fast Play

As we all know, there are certain markers on a golf course which we can use to measure distance. The rangefinder eliminates the need to use these markers because it can calculate the distance using its own features which saves a considerable amount of your time.

Keep a Record of Your Game

Secondly, you are able to collect data of every game you have played using the rangefinder. This data can be stored and used whenever needed.

Improve Your Game

The data stored on the rangefinder can also help you to see what part of the game you fell short in, so you can use this data to overcome your shortcomings in your next game or when you practice.

Golf Range Buying Guide

Maximum Range

Study the specification f the rangefinder you have in mind to make sure that the maximum range it can calculate is within the range the ball will travel.

Easy to Grasp

There is no point in buying a complex rangefinder which is so difficult to understand that you have an easier time doing the calculations yourself. It helps to get a demonstration of the device first to make sure it is something you can easily make use of.

Number of Features

Different rangefinders have different kinds of features. Buy the rangefinder that suits you best when it comes to the features. For example, some rangefinders can take slopes and other unevenness in the ground into consideration. Others can be synced with your phone or tablet, etc.

Complies with Tournament Regulations

Some features, for example, the slope calculation feature, are not allowed in many golf tournaments. So they are great for personal use but if you do compete in tournaments then you might have to look towards a different model.

Manufacturer

It always helps to buy from a trustworthy manufacturer. This is because a rangefinder is not something you can experiment with because you don’t really have to buy it too often. A rangefinder from a good manufacturer can also be easily repaired or helped out with by others who use it.

Budget

Keep your budget in mind when planning to buy a rangefinder. It is not a smart move to buy a really fancy one even if it exceeds your pocket. A basic rangefinder with the essential functions can also serve its job dutifully.

Reviews

Always read reviews when buying something that you don’t have experience with. This will help you narrow down the search considerably and you will be sure to have a quality product at the end of the day.

Lets Discuss Rangefinder's Features Individually

Best Slope Rangefinder

BUSHNELL TOUR V4 RANGEFINDER

The Bushnell Tour V4 is an excellent rangefinder for more serious players. If you plan on going pro then this is the rangefinder for you. It has pin seeker technology, can measure distances between 5 yards and 1000 yards, has a 5x magnification power and is legal for all tournaments as well. There is no slope calculating function in this rangefinder, though.

Other than all this, it is really easy to use, and extremely accurate and precise. It is a bit highly priced so average players should probably look at the less expensive options.

Nikon Coolshot 20 Golf Rangefinder

The Nikon Coolshot is a very light and compact rangefinder which can easily fit in your carry case and not weigh it much. What we absolutely love about this rangefinder is that it can scan multiple targets simultaneously and calculate their distance.

It is a bit cheaper than the Bushnell Tour V4 but it is also very easy to use and extremely accurate at calculating the distance. Overall, we find this to be a better option for casual players.

PROS

  • This is a small and compact rangefinder
  • Best for Golf Beginners and easy to use
  • Its price is quite competitive with manu features

CONS

  • It will not offer you slope measurement option
  • It is available in lightweight that is not good option for some golf lovers

The Good Choice

Bushnell Pro X7 Jolt Rangefinder

The Bushnell Pro X7 is another excellent rangefinder Bushnell so you cannot expect a sub-par review from us. This rangefinder also has pin seeker technology which all golf players crave. Other than that, it can measure distances between 5 yards and 1 mile, and it also has slope technology which makes it an absolute gem to own.

This rangefinder also accurately measures distance and is really easy to use by all players. We believe it makes a great rangefinder for both casual and serious players. It is a bit on the expensive side of the spectrum, though.

PROS

  • Extreme. Speed. Precision
  • Pinseeker with Good Range

CONS

  • This RangeFinder is little pricy
