There are two types of rangefinders on the market. One is GPS and one is a laser rangefinder. The GPS variety determines the distance of the hole or other points of the golf course in less time. They use measurements of the known points about the course.
These require the course to be mapped and may require the user to pay a monthly subscription fee, which depends on the type of service that is chosen. The Laser rangefinders can take longer to measure the distance and are only as accurate as of the golfer using the device.
The object of the laser model is to determine the distance between yourself and the object you are viewing through the viewport. Once you have sighted your target you pull the trigger which in turn sends a laser beam to the target. The distance will be displayed on the rangefinder screen.
The GPS rangefinder is much more sophisticated. You actually load the course you are going to be playing from your computer before you even leave home. This is why you most likely why a monthly prescription service will be needed. Once you arrive at the course, you turn on the GPS rangefinder and allow it to acquire the GPS satellite feed. Once you complete one hole, the rangefinder will switch over to the next hole.
Because of the ease of use of the laser rangefinder, it’s the one I will suggest as the perfect gift for the golfer in your life.
One of the best laser rangefinders on the market is made by Bushnell. It gets rave reviews like these from Amazon verified purchasers.
- I have talked to others about the rangefinders and heard Bushnell was the best but was told you don’t need to get the most expensive one as unless you are a pro the add-ons are not needed. My husband loves it and uses it all the time, it’s a great rangefinder for a really good price.
- I bought this as a gift for my husband. He is thrilled with it! He says it is very easy the use, it is accurate and it fits nicely in his hand.
- I bought it for my son and he loves it.
- I purchased the V4 after my four-year-old Tour V3 was stolen off my bag at Station Creek Golf course in Gormley, ON.
- Some very nice improvements by Bushnell: Picks up the pin significantly faster than the previous version. After pressing the orange button, it finds the pin almost instantaneously. It has a battery level indicator. The old version simply stopped working once the battery drained, leading the missed holes if a spare battery wasn’t in the bag. It’s now lighter and smaller.
It’s very lightweight at 454g and its dimensions are 7.9 x 10.2 x 4cm. It requires a Lithium Metal Battery and it’s included with the rangefinder. The Bushnell is Stable with JOLT technology with ranges from 5-1000 yards. The field of view from 1000 yards is 367 feet with 5x magnification and features Ergonomic design with Grip technology.
This Callaway bag is a perfect size. It’s not too big and not too small. The Bushnell has five pockets including a valuables pocket, full-length apparel pocket, water bottle sleeve, glove pocket, and a golf ball pocket.
The top has a five-way top divider system, webbed towel loop, and padded dual shoulder strap. A rain hood is also included. The price is excellent and mid-range as far as golf bag prices go. So basically, you are getting a quality product at an excellent price.
PRACTICE SWING NET
This is a great present for the golfer who wants the practice his swing during those long, cold, winter months. Or anytime, for that matter.
The GoSports Golf Practice Hitting Net comes in two sizes. A huge 10′ X 7′ or 7′ X 7′. Basically, it’s a personal driving range for indoors or outdoors. This product was designed by golfers for golfers.
No more getting into the car and heading to the driving range to buy a bucket of balls. In the winter you can set up the practice net indoors and when it’s golf weather, you can set it up in the back yard.
It sets up in a matter of minutes and is easy to disassemble and fit into the carry bag. The net material is high quality, and the metal frame and flex poles are sturdy. Most of the time the ball will come right back to you and if you like you can set it upright on a concrete pad.
GOLF PRACTICE PUTTING GREEN
This is the ideal gift for the golfer who has everything….except for a practice putting green.
The FUN GREEN Golf Practice Indoor Putting Green is excellent for working on one of the most difficult and aggravating aspects of golf. You can drive like the longest pro, lay up like Tiger Woods, but if you three or four putt every hole, it won’t matter how good the rest of your game is if you are looking to lower your score.
What better way to spend the lead-in to golf season than practicing your putting in the comfort of your own home? Better yet, when you get back from a round of golf and your putting was pretty bad, you can head right to your own private putting green and try to figure out what went wrong. This putting green comes with several excellent features.
Its size is 39″ X 118″. Much like an actual golf course, it’s made of high quality simulated grass turf. It’s configured so you can practice your putting stroke in the home, yard, or office any time you like. It comes complete with flags, stainless steel golf cups, and excellent surround design that keeps the ball in play.
These are all excellent golf products to give as gifts or to buy for your own personal use.
There is a range of prices the suit every budget. If the golfer in your life appears to have everything, chances are there is a gift here that is one of those rare golf items that he or she just doesn’t have.
If you have more than one golfer in the home, then the practice hitting net and indoor putting green might be two excellent choices as everyone can make use of them.
Hopefully, these golf gifts for men who need all the help they can get will give you some idea of the perfect gift for the golfer in your life.
