Choosing Between Different Types of Golf Rangefinders

Having a good golf rangefinder can tremendously improve your game. You will know what is the distance from the point where you are standing to the flag and the hole and you will diminish the error in your judgement when choosing the right golf club. Now you will be able to practice your playing technique. All the golf rangefinders are first priority rangefinders – they are used in the situations when there is nothing between you and the flag. They measure the distance between the standing point and the first object that they encounter. All the rangefinders measure their maximum readable distance in ideal atmospheric conditions. If there’s written on the packaging that it measures distances up to 1500 yards then you should lower your expectations and not think that it can do it in any cloudy or rainy day. It may show you distances up to 1000 yards although the safest way to approximate the comfortable readable distance is a third of the distance that the manufacturer claims to be.

How do you use a golf rangefinder

On the golf course you could use any kind of rangefinder – either golf or hunting rangefinders. You first need to set the rangefinder on the SCAN mode and slowly move it from left to right. You will get readings for the trees from the back of the flag. At some point the distance reading will shoot to a much closer reading – this means that you have reached the flag.
