Optical rangefinders are common alternatives to a golf GPS device and offer their own advantages on the golf course. They do not require course downloads in order to work, nor do they rely on satellite signals in order to function properly.
Optical range finders work by pointing them at a designated area and then using lasers to bounce a signal off the target and back to the handset to work out the distance. It’s a great way to navigate distances from bunkers and flags.
Other benefits include the function to measure the change in elevation or other hindrances that could upset your shot such as changes in temperature. However, some optical rangefinders will not perform at their best when the weather is foggy, so best to use them when the sky is clear if you want to achieve best results.
This device is the ultimate distance finder and we stock all the top brands, from Bushnell and Nikon through to Easygreen. We also provide a range of cheap laser rangefinders, which work just as effectively and won’t leave a large hole in your pocket.
