Playing golf is more than just a sport, it is n emotion. The natural stress reliever that it is, if you love the game you know the need to do well. When on the golf course, it is all about the experience of reaching getting the ball into the hole, and for this along with skill and judgement you often need other devices that can assist you to play better.
One such device is the rangefinder, typically used to measure the distance between you and the hole or other relevant points. You can very much improve your game with the rangefinder, as it gives you the idea of how far and how hard you will need to hit to get closer to the hole.
There are two main types of rangefinders in the market available for you, one is the GPS rangefinder and the other is a laser one. Both of them are used for the same purpose, but their methods are different. Let us check the key features of both of them
The GPS Rangefinder
This is an accurate form of measurement that also takes bare minimum amount of time to measure the distance between you and the hole or other points. This is possible because it marks all the points on the golf that are already known or pre-fed into the system.
The services in this kind of rangefinders vary and there usually will be a subscription based on the basis of the services the rangefinder provides. For this to work you have to load the course on which you plan to play before leaving. And when you reach the site, you simply put it on and the range finder will measure the exact distance in no time.
Laser Range Finder
This one usually takes longer to calculate the distance as it works on a laser beam and calculates the distance travelled by the laser beam. You have to aim this range finder on the exact spot whose distance you wish to calculate and pull the trigger. You need to aim the laser beam on that spot and it will the measure the distance.
