Golf Buddy Tour GPS Range Finder - Product Review:

Take the guesswork out of your golf game with the GolfBuddy Tour, a true GPS unit with automatic course and hole recognition. The GolfBuddy Tour-which comes pre-loaded with course information from across the world-helps you gain confidence on the course by telling you exactly how far and where to go with every shot. The unit is equipped with a large, easy-to-read screen that gives you the exact distance to greens, bunkers, lakes, lay-up points, and hazards. The view of the green is dynamic, meaning the GolfBuddy Tour changes the shape of the green depending on your angle of approach. Need to know whether the trees on the right are in play, or whether the far bunker is within range of your 7-iron? Just grab the GolfBuddy Tour and it provides all the information you need. Plus, there’s no need to aim the GPS to obtain distance information, as the GolfBuddy Tour automatically recognizes your surroundings. Just turn it on and play.

How the GolfBuddy Tour Works

The GolfBuddy Tour offers a number of features that help you take your golf game to the next level. The score tracking feature, for example, lets you record up to 1,000 rounds, and includes tags for the course and date. This helps you calculate your handicap and track your progress over time. The GolfBuddy Tour also calculates the actual distance you hit with each club-a critical component for lowering your scores. Just mark your starting position, hit your shot, and walk to where the ball landed. And to help you improve your course management skills, the GolfBuddy Tour tracks your distance from the green (front, center, and back) at all times and the distance of all in-play hazards. The unit lists every item that can affect your play, even if you can’t see it from your present location. The GolfBuddy Tour even provides the lay-up (approach) and carry distances for each hazard, so you’ll know how to effectively bypass the ponds and sand traps that lay in wait.

Perhaps the coolest feature, however, is the automatic course recognition. Rather than requiring you to sort through thousands of pre-loaded courses, the GolfBuddy Tour automatically locates your course and hole the minute you turn it on. This helps you keep your mind focused on your game rather than your GPS unit.

Additional features include the ability to add up to 11 custom targets per hole, a storage capacity of 20,000 courses, a tough water-resistant housing, a multilingual menu, and a lithium-polymer rechargeable battery. The GolfBuddy Tour-which doesn’t require any annual or course download fees-comes with a 90-day warranty.
