Types of Rangefinders

Consider the various types of golf range finders.

Golf Laser Rangefinders

How They Work: Laser rangefinders use a laser beam to measure the distance from the device to a specific target (such as the flag, hazards, or landmarks). The golfer aims the rangefinder at the target, presses a button, and receives an instant yardage reading.

  • Accuracy: Laser rangefinders provide precise measurements down to the yard.

  • Versatility: They work well on any golf course, regardless of preloaded maps.

  • No Subscription Fees: No ongoing costs after the initial purchase.

  • Manual Targeting: Requires steady hands and precise aiming.

  • Limited Information: Only provides distance; no course maps or additional features.

Golf GPS Rangefinders

How They Work: GPS rangefinders use satellite technology to determine the golfer’s location and display preloaded course maps. They show distances to various points on the course, including hazards, greens, and fairway bunkers.

  • Course Mapping: Provides detailed hole layouts and hazard locations.

  • Ease of Use: No manual aiming required; simply glance at the screen.

  • Additional Features: Some models offer shot tracking, scorekeeping, and green shape information.

  • Accuracy: May not be as precise as laser rangefinders.

  • Subscription Fees: Some GPS rangefinders require annual subscriptions for course updates.

  • Battery Life: Battery drainage can be an issue during long rounds.

Golf Slope Rangefinders

These rangefinders account for elevation changes (slope) in their distance calculations. They adjust the yardage based on uphill or downhill shots.

  • Improved accuracy when playing on hilly courses.
  • Not legal for tournament play unless the slope feature is disabled.

Golf GPS Watches

These are wearable devices that display yardages directly on your wrist. They combine GPS functionality with the convenience of a watch.

  • Hands-free operation, continuous access to yardages, and additional features like step tracking.

  • Smaller screen size and limited course information compared to handheld GPS devices.
