2018 Golf Laser Rangefinders Introduction


Golf Laser Rangefinders

With the USGA’s ruling (Rule 14-3 and Decision 14-3/0.5), laser rangefinders that measure distance only (as opposed to other conditions such as the slope of the ground) may be permitted by a Local Rule.

The most accurate laser rangefinder readings are obtained when targeting highly reflective objects with bright colors under moderate daylight (overcast days are best). Larger targets, and ones that create a 90 degree angle to the line of sight, will receive the best readings. The steadier the unit can be held, the more accurate the readings will be.

There are always those that prefer golf GPS devices, which don’t require as much expertise to use, but sacrifice some accuracy.

Here is a look at some of the latest golf laser rangefinders.
