Golf range finders are becoming a craze for every golf players now- a-days.

Long back, you can find golf range finders only with professionals and the

cost of range finders were also too high to afford.

As the enthusiasm in the game and the fantasy towards usage of technical

gadgets increased, golf range finders are now featuring even in small put

games. But, before getting the right golf range finder that suits you, there

are various things you ought to know. I have discussed few key points that

should be concentrated before choosing the desired golf range finder.




Golf range finder is simple equipment that helps you in finding the distance

of the goal from the current position. Some advanced golf range finders

provide additional features such as choosing the club, etc. Golf range

finders differ only by the way they operate.




Basically, there are two types of golf range finders. They are laser and

GPS. In case of laser based golf range finder, it sends a harmless laser to

the pole and reflects it back to provide you the accurate distance remaining.

Laser based range finders are similar to binoculars which provides you

additionally, the information of distance to goal. The advantage of laser is

the rate of accuracy it provides. In case of GPS based golf range finders, it

uses the GPS technology and provides the distance to the winning post and

the direction.

You can also have a bird eye’s view in case of GPS based range finders.

Though accuracy of GPS is less compared to that of laser type, it has a good

base of features such as game statistics, tips etc.




Before going into the type of range finder, study the field you are planning

to play thoroughly and note down the requirements. As the purchasing

power of range finders have increased, companies have started providing

more features with less cost to survive the competition.

Some feature such as inclination measurement though not allowed in

tournaments, can help in accurate practicing of the hit. On the other side, in

case of high slope, lasers fail as they have to use intermediate points to

reach the goal.

After you have studied about your requirement, next in the row is the

budget. If you are planning for a one time investment, go for a laser type

range finder which will just need a set of batteries to operate.

If you want to practice accurately, I would suggest you to go for a laser type

range finder. If you are totally new and need support for your game, GPS

will be a best pick. GPS comes mostly with a yearly subscription.

GPS based range finders features various details in the map such as

position of water, gutter and other obstacles in the field. Though they are

loaded with features, they are costly compared to laser type and has few

cons such as signal problem, requirement of periodic up gradation of maps

and unavailability of maps of few fields, etc.

Channelize your need by brainstorming and finding the exact reason of buy.

If you really feel you desire for a GPS but you are not ready to scratch your

purse, you can use your smartphone as your range finder by just installing

an application.

The cost of the application will be mostly a onetime payment, hardly asking

to shed few dollars from your wallet. But, they also cannot be used

continuously as the battery life of your phone can’t withstand the entire

day’s play. Ask for expert’s advice and read the reviews of various range

finders.

Check out for famous brands like golfbuddy, bushnell, callaway, leupold

etc. It will be a better option, if you directly go to outlets, feel them in hand,

operate them and select the one that suits you.
