Deciding if you want a Rangefinder or GPS?

The first decision is whether you want a GPS unit or a laser rangefinder. I have covered the pros and cons of each type of yardage device in our article Golf GPS or Laser Rangefinder – Which is Better?

Of course some golfers do carry both types of units, as each have their strengths and weaknesses. The GPS units are a little faster and lighter which makes them great for casual play when speed is important. The laser rangefinders are a bit bigger, but probably more accurate and more versatile.

If you really can’t decide then Bushnell has just released the perfect unit for you. Our Bushnell Hybrid Pinseeker Review goes over this unique combination of both an optical rangefinder and a satellite GPS unit which is getting very high ratings from golfers.

Did you decide on a Rangefinder for Golf?

If you decided that a laser rangefinder is right for you, then you have a couple more decisions to make. The first is whether or not you will want a “slope” rangefinder. These units are much more accurate than regular rangefinders because they use an inclinometer to factor in changes in elevation when calculating yardages. Sounds great right? Unfortunately these units are not legal for use during any rounds that will count towards your handicap, or in most sanctioned tournament play.

New this season is a rangefinder (see our Leupold GX-4 review) that has slope readings, but these features can be disabled using an included “key.” This unit provides the best of both worlds – a slope rangefinder that can also be tournament legal.

Once you decide on slope or regular rangefinder for golf, read our quick guide to selecting a golf rangefinder to find out the features that are the most relevant to what you want.

From there I created a listing of golf rangefinder reviews, with links to a detailed review and golfer report for every unit, including the top rated Bushnell Pro 1600 Review.

Is a Golf GPS is right for You?

The first thing is to read our article outlining the Top 5 Considerations When Shopping for a Golf GPS so you can be clear about which features are most important to you when you are deciding on which unit is right for you.

Once you understand the various differences that the units will be offering, then you are ready for our list of golf GPS reviews, which has a rating for virtually every unit on the market and a link to a detailed report with golfer feedback for each unit including our top rated Garmin Approach G3 Review.

About Accurate Golf Shots.com

This site was born from my own experiences shopping for rangefinder to improve my golf game. The process was a bit more complex than I expected, so to save other time I decided to put all the information I discovered online into a website.

I hope you find our site useful: a considerable amount of work has gone into compiling and maintaining the information presented here in an effort to save you many hours when shopping for a golf GPS or rangefinder.

In return for this effort be aware that I will be compensated for any purchases that you make as a result of clicking on the links on this website. I am not affiliated with any particular brand or manufacturer, therefore it is in our best interest, as it is yours, for us to recommend the best unit for each golfer’s circumstances and not plug a particular brand or unit because it is a sponsor of the site.

Further to that, I maintain my objectivity by presenting, not my own opinions, but rather the actual points of view of golfers using each particular unit that I am reviewing. I have gathered these points of feedback from around the web and put them together to present a balanced and fair reflection of each unit based on the patterns of praise or complaints offered for each unit.

I chose to refer shoppers to Amazon.com because they offer the best combination of lowest prices, well known name, great reputation and fantastic support. When you factor in all these elements it is hard to find another merchant that comes close. In short, they are where I shop for not only golf supplies, but many other items and I’ve never had a bad experience with them.
