Golf GPS devices come in different shapes and sizes and are used for various advantages in golf. Golf GPS watches are similar to smartwatches, designed for the modern golfer. Depending on the model, they provide information relating to shot distances, shot tracking, hazard locations and other handy features.
Golf GPS rangefinders deal mostly with calculating shot distances - the more advanced versions look similar to a mobile phone, with a bright and colourful display.
Laser rangefinders, on the other hand, look similar to a pair of binoculars and judge distances using laser technology.
Most golf GPS devices work using satellite technology, which provides information about specific courses while golfers are playing. But many golf GPS devices have the data of thousands of golf courses pre-built into them, giving golfers a massive range of options in terms of where to play.
That depends entirely on you, your needs and your tastes. If you’re just looking for data related to shot distances, basic hole info and similar info, our Bushnell Phantom 2 Golf GPS will do the trick.
But if you want a really in-depth golf GPS experience, you should opt for something a little more hi-tech and fashionable like the SkyCaddie LX5C Ceramic GPS golf watch. Either way, these devices will help your overall golf game.
Unless you’re playing in a tournament where golf GPS devices are forbidden, no, it’s not cheating! Golfers everywhere use these devices to not only lower their scores but to make golf a more enjoyable experience. Plus, a golf GPS device will help you get to grips with judging distances faster, improving your skill on the course.
