Golf Rangefinder Buyers Guide

Which Golf Rangefinder is right for your game?

Laser Rangefinders will give you the most accurate yardage to any target you can see, within several hundred yards. Most have magnification capabilities and are as easy to use as a point-and-shoot camera. Rangefinders will work on any golf course in any conditions and their batteries will last many rounds.


Here are some features to look for when comparing Rangefinders:

  • Maximum Range
  • Maximum Magnification
  • Whether or not the rangefinder has Slope (Not approved by the USGA)
  • Battery Life
  • Size - dimensions and weight
  • Display
