This may very well be the most inexpensive in this list. It’s something that budget-conscious golfers will likely pick up. It’s quality, however, is not as good as those from Bushnell and Nikon. It lacks certain features that would help first-time users in determining their distance from the flag.
But it is what it is—a budget-friendly, entry-level rangefinder. It has a range of 1000 yards and a 7x magnification. If you are looking for a cheap rangefinder and you don’t really consider yourself a demanding user, then this could be the right unit for you.
This is a mode that is particularly designed for golfers. With this mode, you can easily measure the distance from where you are located to the cup.
To use this mode, you simply press a button after aligning the digital range marks with the pin. The distance in yards will then be displayed automatically in the LCD screen. This is a great feature that can assist golfers, especially the amateurs and beginners.
You don’t need to be an expert user of rangefinders to be able to operate this unit. It is relatively easy to use. Simply press the ON/ADJUST button to switch on the device.
The unit then goes on the default Green mode. Line the bottom of the scale to the bottom of the flag, press the ON/ADJUST button and the distance will be shown.

Compact and lightweight
This is another of those compact rangefinders that you can easily slip into the pocket of your pants or jacket. It weighs less than 5 ounces. It measures 3-4 inches long and 2 inches wide. Let us just say that you won’t even notice that you have this in the pockets because of how small and lightweight it is.
The unit comes with a padded case that protects it against bumps and bruises. It’s not the fanciest accessory in the world but it gets the job done.
Long battery life

This is a very basic rangefinder for golfers. It doesn’t that many of features especially when you compare it to the more expensive and best golf rangefinders. But according to reviews on Amazon.com, it does what it is supposed to do. They also say that it is very easy to use.
Others say that the accuracy is also good, as they were able to compare it with other rangefinders. While there will be some golfers who will get frustrated with the lack of features, most users should be able to harness this unit pretty well.
