You’ve heard it before; Professional and amateur golfers are flocking to the latest “game-changing” gear, hoping to drop their handicaps into the single digits. You might even be one of them. If you are, know that a new driver could be the wrong investment for reducing your strokes. Scroll down to shop some of the best rangefinders for golf instead.
Golf rangefinders are valuable tools that give you the exact distance of your next shot. Understanding those readings will improve your game by informing you which club to pull and how hard to swing it. Without that information, winning is left to chance. Just one miscalculation as to how far the green is or how the fairway's slope affects that distance could put you deep in the rough with no way to recover.
GET TRUE ACCURACY
Gut feelings don’t cut it in golf. And using a GPS to see yardages is only marginally better. With one of those distance-measuring devices, you get ball-park readings that indicate general pin locations like the front, middle, and back of the green. GPS also doesn’t account for slope, which could dramatically affect the true strike-to-pin distance. Only a Leupold rangefinder with golf technology can deliver the exact range of every shot every time. If you do decide to skip that new club in favor of a Leupold golf rangefinder, you’ll gain access to the most advanced features this eighteen-hole sport has to offer.
The key to fast and accurate ranging is to lock on to the flagstick. Unsteady hands make it more difficult to get on and stay on the pin. Not anymore. Our improved PinHunter 3 Laser Technology (available on all GX rangefinders) eliminates false readings caused by background obstacles like bushes and trees and makes zeroing in on the target fast and easy.
Our intelligent Flag Lock Technology identifies the pin from the obstacles around it and uses the information to accurately locate and lock onto the pin. Leupold’s Flag Lock Technology eliminates the guesswork and guarantees an accurate range.
Leupold’s GX Prism Lock Technology makes locking onto your target faster than ever before. You’ll hear an audible alert when the rangefinder finds the prism attached to the flagstick. The distance will be displayed instantly, speeding up your pace of play.
DIGITALLY ENHANCED ACCURACY
Digital processing helps our GX rangefinders pick up less noise than traditional rangefinders, delivering more accurate ranges at lightning-quick speeds every time. Test one yourself, and you’ll see just how much faster a Leupold GX rangefinder is than the competition. When every shot counts, you can trust Leupold’s Digitally eNhanced Accuracy (DNA) to guarantee spot-on Line of Sight (LOS) distances and pinpoint True Golf Range™ (TGR) accuracy within 1/10th of a yard.
TRUE GOLF RANGE (TGR) TECHNOLOGY
Serious golfers know that the true strike-to-pin distance is rarely a flat line. Even the slightest incline or decline can have a big impact on how far your ball actually travels compared to the perceived line-of-sight distance that most rangefinders deliver. That’s why Leupold’s True Golf Range (TGR) Technology uses elevation changes and atmospheric conditions to generate the most accurate ranges on the market.
CLUB SELECTOR THAT’S CUSTOM TAILORED TO YOU
Club Selector gives you every advantage you need to hit the perfect shot. By pre-entering your normal striking distances for your 8, 6, and 4 irons, Club Selector will then make club recommendations based on the TGR of your shot.
For example, if you’re hitting a downhill shot to a pin that’s 183 yards away, the actual approach angle and strike-to-pin distance might be different based on the club you use. With Leupold’s TGR technology combined with our Club Selector, you know you'll have the right distance and the right club every time. It’s like having a caddie in the palm of your hand.
With Leupold’s image stabilization technology, you can drastically reduce movement caused by shaky hands. It stabilizes both the image and the laser to deliver more accurate ranges, giving you more confidence in every swing.
