What People Say about the Golf Buddy VS4:

“I wanted a small gps device that was discrete. This was the perfect answer. Distances were all great on public and private courses. Some complained that it would jump to the wrong hole if you hit it into an adjacent fairway and I did experience that but it’s very easy to change back to the hole that you are on.” – David

Golf Buddy VS4 Backs“Good Product. I received a Garmin Watch Range Finder as a gift about a year ago and its alright but a bit of hassle as it has a lock feature that is frustrating and you must go through a download process at the course. I wanted to give my friend a range finder and he won’t wear a watch so this product seem to be the answer. My friend wears it on his cap, it has no lock or down load process and he absolutely loves the thing. He played out of state with it last week and on some really small courses and had no problems. As far as I can tell from playing with him, it is a hassle free solid product.” – Reno72

“Great product. Haven’t come across a course not on the Golf Buddy. Easy to use. Only complaint is it takes a long time to locate the course. Need to activate it soon as I get to course and sometimes not ready by time I’m on the first tee.” – Truckor

What People Say about the Golf Buddy Tour:

Golf Buddy Tour Pros & Cons“Great addition to my golf gear. Works pretty much straight out of the box, pretty intuative and great fun to use. I’m in New Zealand so was a bit nervous purchasing a Northern Hemisphere machine but absolutely no problems getting it going and it found satilites down here no problem and loaded all the courses in NZ instantly. Works perfectly on my home course and so now all I have to do is improve my scoring with the accurate information I now have on each shot!!!” – Andrew Donald


“This GPS does everything I need on the golf course. Great value . It has allowed me to dial in my clubs from 110 yds in . Now carry an extra wedge & took out my 3 iron. Great to determine the hazard distances.” – Brian Taylor


“Not only do golf courses come preloaded, but they can be updated from time-to-time as necessary at no charge. The range finder also can be used to keep score for up to 4 players and can be used to preview courses that you intend to play at a later time. The only negative to me is that it uses 2 AA batteries, so rechargeable NiMH batteries are the way to go.” – E. N. Randall

What People Say about the Golf Buddy Platinum:

“I did not purchase from Amazon, but from my local golf shop to take on a test run. Previously used an app for my phone, but found the unlocking and many screen touches to be too distracting and interrupt the flow of the game. This little device is awesome. Lasts 3 rounds on a charge. Turn it on at the course and after finding the satellites, picks up the course and starting hole, even if you start on back 9. Automatically moves to the next hole without screen interaction. Single touch zooms into green to get front, middle and back yardages. Friends have laser range finder, but again, it becomes too cumbersome to me and the few yards of accuracy isn’t worth the trouble. Great tool, highly recommend.” – david

Golf Buddy Platinum ProPlay “I have used GolfBuddy Platinum before and recently ordered a new one for my wife, great product, durable and very easy to use. Touch screen is great and targeting around the course is very helpful. Scores and stats lets you track your progress round by round. The best part is no annual fee. I’ve played in several states and never had a problem with the unit.

The only thing I don’t like is when you play a course with 3 nine hole courses the unit will not total the entire score at the end. Other than that GolfBuddy is a must have for any golfer.” – Thomas

Golf Buddy Platinum GPS Rangefinder “I have seen a lot of golf GPSs but Golf Buddy Platinum for the price is above the rest. It has no fees ever and more courses then most. This GPS is very easy to up date and load new courses. Best screen I have ever used and much more. I used my Golf Buddy in the USA and Canada all the golf courses I golfed were up to date.” – Werner Redel
