BushnellRangefinder.jpgFor nearly 70 years, Bushnell has remained one of the most trustworthy names in the field of optics. Chances are you may have grown up looking at the stars through a Bushnell telescope or a pair of their binoculars. Maybe the stars don’t interest you as much anymore, but perhaps you’re chasing another far away tiny object, like a golf ball? Bushnell’s got you covered there with their selection of laser golf ball range finders.


Laser rangefinders are probably the easiest to use, and are your long range distance helper. Not only can you use them to find the flagstick from where you are, but laser range finders serve some secondary purposes to. You can use them to help scout out any obstructions, or even keep a lookout on the group ahead. While they may have a bit of trouble finding flat horizontal hazards, they can definitely help you navigate along raised terrain.They’re really easy to use too, meaning you’ll have this technology mastered in no time.


Why are Laser Range Finders so easy to use?

Operating a Laser Range Finder is basically as simple as pushing a button and aiming at the target. Unlike GPS Range Finders, you don’t have to worry about map packs or coordinates. Laser devices work off the surfaces around you so that you don’t need to download anything additional. There are no recurring fees or need to keep databases up to date. Best of all, Bushnell’s Range Finders are tournament legal, which means you don’t have to worry about leaving them behind in the car before you hit the links for fear of penalty strokes or disqualification.


How can a Range FindBushnell-Tour-V3-4a.jpger help your golf game?

Quite simply put, if you’re like me, your eyes will deceive you. I have trouble keeping up with my ball at the driving range and how far I’ve hit it. Out on the course, I have trouble seeing the flagstick a couple hundred yards away, and will always need something to help me out. Bushnell’s line of Laser Guided Range Finders help you zero in on the flagstick, and even vibrate to notify you that it’s found the pin. While Bushnell’s devices have a viewing range of around 1000 yards (more than enough for a single hole,) you should know that the best accuracy for finding the pin is within around 300 yards. Let’s not kid ourselves – unless you’re John Daly or Happy Gilmore, that should be more than plenty! With a few options to choose from, all that’s left for you to choose from is how large of a magnified zoom you need out there. The models vary and offer up to 7x magnification. All Bushnell Range Finders are also waterproof and ready to get you to the clubhouse faster when the skies open up. They’re also all outfitted in sturdy casing, so you don’t have to worry about damage to the optics if you accidentally fumble or drop them from a short distance.


While they probably can’t help your putting or add yardage off the tee, Bushnell’s Laser Range Finders are ready to help you point your approaches in the right direction and take the guesswork out of your next shot. All that’s left for you to do is decide on which one you’re taking to the links with you. Here are your options!
