Golf Buddy Legal Distance Measuring Device

A change in the Rules of Golf by the R&A and USGA back in 2006 now allows the use of electronic measuring devices in Competition play. Therefore GPS units like the Golf Buddy can be used at club comp level providing the Club Committee have sanctioned a Local Rule.

Since the rule change the golf market has been flooded with GPS devices from various manufacturers. Where the GolfBuddy range of units differ from some of the competition is that no annual membership fee is required to keep the unit up to date with the latest courses. In fact the Pro and Tour models can hold up to 20,000 courses and the World Platinum model an astonishing 40,000 courses, all at no extra cost.

Advantages of using a GolfBuddy Rangefinder

•It acts like the GPS in your car, so it knows exactly what course you are playing and what hole. The unit will automatically find the course you are on making it one of the easiest GPS rangefinders available.

•Takes the guessing out of your game by giving the distances to the front, back and middle of the green. The unit also displays the distances to the hazards on each hole and also allows the user to add up to 11 custom targets.

•When you purchase a Golf Buddy GPS unit the majority of the courses that you will play are already stored on the unit. So you are ready to go straight away. If the courses that you play are not on the unit they can be downloaded from the Golf Buddy website....Free of Charge.

•The GolfBuddy GPS Rangefinder comes pre-loaded with courses from Europe, Africa and Middle East. The ever-expanding library also includes courses from all across the world.
