How to Properly Use a Golf Range Finder

When used correctly golf rangefinders can help you determine the distance of a target. While it's not entirely necessary to have for a round of golf, it can certainly help take your game to the next level. Unfortunately, it often looks easier said than done.

How to Properly Use a Golf Rangefinder

While you can scour through every page of your instruction manual, the best way to learn how to use your golf rangefinder is by practicing. That being said, there are some tips that can help you pick it up faster with more precise results.

Read on to learn more about how to best operate your rangefinder.

If You're Using it for Golf, Make Sure it's a Golf Rangefinder

There are a variety of rangefinders currently found on the market. However, the majority of these rangefinders are actually geared for hunting.

Laser rangefinder brands like Nikon, Wildgame, and Sig Sauer are typically designed for measuring the distance to an animal and may have slightly different specifications than what you would use on a golf course.

Instead, look for brands like Bushnell, Leupold, and Precision Pro to find a golf rangefinder geared towards your specific needs.

Know Just How Far Your Rangefinder Can Measure

Not all golf rangefinders are created equally. The type of rangefinder you purchase should depend on how far you plan on measuring.

GPS rangefinders tend to have a farther distance, but there is always a chance that the golf database doesn't have the golf course you're using.

Laser rangefinders are also an option, however, they need to have a reflective surface (or a specific target) to get you the most accurate measurements.

Depending on the layout of the course, you should get a general idea of which type is best for your game.

Go for Accessibility

It seems like new golf rangefinder models are coming out every day. Many of these models are sleeker and more compact making them easier to get to.

In fact, there are even models that can easily fit into your pocket, so you don't have to fumble to find it. Some golfers also choose to keep their golf finder on a lanyard or on a belt case so it's easily within reach.

The important thing is to keep your golf rangefinder in a place that can be easily accessed throughout the game.

Practice Even When You're Not Golfing

Just like perfecting your swing, practicing how to use your golf rangefinder is the best thing you can use.

Feel free to try it out at home or out in the yard.
