A rangefinder is a great addition to any golfer’s bag. Golf rangefinders allow players to attain accurate yardages to the pin for approach shots and much, much more. Many of the rangefinders on the market today also offer slope functionality, which will give golfers both actual and adjusted yardages, the latter of which tells you how long a shot will play based on how much uphill or downhill the shot is. It’s important to note that the USGA does currently prohibit the use of slope function for tournament play but its use is completely legal in preparing for tournaments, and most slope rangefinders make it easy to turn the slope function on and off as necessary. If you’re in the market for a golf rangefinder, TGW has a number of great options from top brands like Bushnell, Laser Link, Leupold and more.

Golf Rangefinder F.A.Q.
The reasons why you want to consider purchasing a golf rangefinder are many. Most notably, rangefinders do so much more than just measure yardages for approach shots. In fact, most golfers who take full advantage of a rangefinder will collect multiple measurements on any given hole, especially when it comes to courses they’re unfamiliar with. As an example, a rangefinder allows a player to measure the yardage not only to the pin but also the front of the green, back of the green, or a significant slope on the green that must be taken into account. You can also measure yardages for laying up short of or trying to carry a bunker or hazard, as well as retrieve yardages to the corner of doglegs on holes that bend significantly right or left. Still unsure? Here are 5 reasons why you need a rangefinder to play better and enjoy you time on course more.
What To Look For In A Golf Rangefinder
As discussed above, slope functionality would be at the top of the list, as it’s a highly valuable feature in terms of learning a golf course, especially one with significant elevation changes. Also important is the size and weight of the device. Rangefinders have gotten progressively smaller and more ergonomic through the years, which has made them easy to use. But more compact devices typically make it easier for golfers to use without having their hands shake while retrieving yardages. Other features to consider when making a purchase would be the range offered by a device, its magnification, its accuracy and speed in measuring distances, and whether or not it’s waterproof, an important consideration for golfers who play in all weather conditions.
