Distance Measuring Devices

BUSHNELL Golf Hybrid Rangefinder
The Bushnell Hybrid is a combination laser and GPS product. The laser rangefinding technology engineered into the Hybrid provides golfers precise distances within one yard to virtually any point on any course. The Hybrid’s GPS function allows users to access more than 16,000 North American golf courses which have been pre-loaded onto the device, making it ready to use right out of the box without ever having to pay any membership fees. The Hybrid’s GPS provides simple, at-a-glance distances to front, center and back of the green. The Hybrid also offers four custom points on a hole that can be extremely helpful to reference on blind tee shots/approaches on a golf course. Having the ability to use both laser and GPS technologies, the golfer now has the best of both worlds in one unit.

Sonocaddie V500
Over 24,000 preloaded color course layouts and yardage guide eliminates the downloading process. Sunlight viewable touch screen, touch point positioning allows you to touch any point to immediately see the distance from you to that point. Satellite imagery allows you to see the actual image with yardage information when you are playing. Video flyover to see the finest detailed information of each hole. Digital scorecard and game analysis automatically calculates total score and presents a summary of your round at the end of it. Also track your game with the locations of each shot on the screen to track where you can improve. No annual fees or membership fees.
Leupold GX-4 Digital Rangefinder
The Leupold GX-4 Digital Golf Rangefinder offers a rugged aluminum body, a vivid OLED display and line-of-site measurement when the standard chrome faceplate is attached. Snap on the included Smart Key faceplate and the GX-4 instantly becomes a coach, providing accurate ranging information that matches your personal striking distances to the slope of the shot and current atmospheric conditions, even suggesting which club to use. The TGR feature on the GX-4 uses sophisticated, algorithmic-based software, in addition to temperature and altitude inputs to tell you exactly how far you should play a shot. Taking the TGR function a step further, the Club Selector automatically recommends the appropriate club for each shot, even indicating when the distance falls between clubs. Simply input the striking distance for three specific clubs and the GX will do the rest.
