Some reviewers have questioned its accuracy, but this little rangefinder is a budget-friendly option with some solid features and good performance. Read More

Pros

  • Tournament-safe option
  • Good battery life
  • 500-yard range

Cons

  • Inaccurate readings

A great game of golf starts with choosing the right club and taking the right shot, and in order to do that, you need to know how far you are from the pin. When you don’t know the course by heart, you ought to have an accurate rangefinder of some kind to measure the distance between your ball—wherever it comes to rest—and the hole.

Amazon offers a wide assortment of simple, affordably priced laser rangefinders you can get shipped in time for your next big round.

Callaway’s a trusted name in golf, synonymous with style and a certain level of quality, and this rangefinder is a big favorite among reviewers. Most products on this list have been accused of questionable accuracy or battery drain by at least some users, but this one has overwhelmingly positive user ratings. It’s got a fancy external LCD display as well as a standard 800-yard range. You might pay more for this one, but its host of features might be worth paying a little extra.

Pros

  • External LCD display

  • 800-yard range

  • Useful features

Cons

  • Possible battery drain

The big selling point on this TideWe rangefinder is its built-in, rechargeable lithium-ion battery. When you get home after a round, just plug it in like you would a phone or other device and you won’t have to sweat the battery drain that plagues other models. You can turn off the slope-correction function to make this tournament legal, but it’s apparently somewhat tricky; it’s not as easy as just flipping a switch.

Pros

  • Built-in rechargeable battery

  • Anti-slip surface

  • 700-yard range

Cons

  • Tricky to turn off the slope function

Gogogo Pro-GS24

This option from Gogogo has some nice smart features, a 650-yard range, and a simple tournament-safe mode, but some golfers expressed concerns about its accuracy. As with other laser rangefinders, it has a tendency to drain batteries. It might be worth removing the battery when storing it in your golf bag at the end of a round.

Pros

  • 250-yard pin-seeking technology

  • Tournament-safe option

  • 650-yard range

Cons

  • Inaccurate readings

  • Battery drain

Gogogo GS03

This affordable Gogogo rangefinder offers flag-lock technology and a 650-yard range, which is plenty, but its slope function may make it illegal for tournament settings. Whereas other models let you switch the slope correction off, this one doesn’t offer that feature. But if you’re not playing competitively, this is a great product outside of tourneys.

Pros

  • 300-yard flag-lock technology

  • 650-yard range

Cons

  • May not be tournament legal

Product image of Peakpulse 6Pro
Peakpulse 6Pro

The Peakpulse is only accurate up to about 500 yards, but that’s more than enough for most golf situations, and reviewers have been pleasantly surprised by the features and performance on this budget-friendly rangefinder. It seems to have good battery life, and it even offers a tournament-safe switch for turning off slope correction.

Pros

  • Tournament-safe option

  • Good battery life

  • 500-yard range

Cons

  • Inaccurate readings
