Best Golf Range Finders


2017 Reviews & Ratings

What's behind Our Ratings

Features

Certain features, such as slope, jolt, accurate target acquisition and other innovations can set a rangefinder way ahead of its competitors.

Ergonomic design

In order to be easy to hold, a rangefinder should be lightweight, it should have an anti slip finish, and for all year use, it should also be weatherproof.

Range

A rangefinder's performance is mainly determined by its range but also by its accuracy and magnification.

Ease of use

Sophisticated features shouldn't make a rangefinder complicated to use. On the contrary, we are looking for an user friendly interface, visible readings and intuitive controls.

Durability

Like it goes with all products, an extensive warranty is a good sign of a sturdy, durable product.
