As long as you are playing on a course with 7' tall flags, you will be fine. Just concentrate on light breathing when using it. However, once you go to an 8' flag course, all bets are off. I can't make it anywhere near accurate at 8' courses. The manual gives you some ridiculous formula to use.
For the price this is worth every penny. Of course it depends on how much your hands shake. Very clear and the sun does not bother you. The yardage reading is close enough for a good golfer to choose what club he or she needs. Thanks for the help.
For what you are paying it is good quality, made very well.But as everyone will tell you it's real hard to get an accurate yardage reading because the slightest movement, even when you think you are very still, it jumps all over so the best you can hope for is an approximate reading.I would still recommend this product for those of you who don't want to or can't afford the luxury of a few hundred dollars for a GPS or Laser, this is still a tool that can help you with yardage when markers are not available.
The Golf Scope is only useful on courses that have eight foot flag pins that are painted different color each foot. I have played seven courses since recieving the Golf Scope and none of the seven have pins like this. The product is durable and has good optics, but has been of no use on the courses I have played.
There is a reason that Laser and GPS units cost what they do; they work. This device is a low magnification monocular, with measurement "grid" on the optical lens for "estimating " distances. Lot of work for very
The measuring bar inside the lens provides questionable range data. If you mounted this on a bipod
it could possibly provide accurate data, but I can use my naked eye and get a closer range estimate
than this scope provides.
