Golf Buddy Tour GPS

By Chad Buleen

One of the worst things about playing on an unfamiliar course is the fact that you often don't know what is on the other side of the dogleg or how far the bunkers are in front of the greens. However, thanks to Golf Buddy Tour GPS, you can get a better idea of what the course looks like--even if you can't see it all. If you play on a lot of different golf courses, it may be worth the costs to have it with you.
 

Function

The Golf Buddy Tour GPS gives users the ability to see the layout of the holes on the golf courses they are playing on a high-resolution color screen. However, instead of merely seeing the course, you can use the Golf Buddy Tour to calculate the distance from the spot you are standing to the location where you want the ball to land. Because the device is water-resistant, is is safe to use in the rain.

Benefits

One of the main benefits associated with this device is that it is easy to use. There are not a lot of different functions that make it difficult to find the feature you want. You can download courses onto the Golf Buddy Tour for free and there are no monthly fees associated with using the device. You can store up to 20,000 courses on the device, so the chances are very slim that you would run out of room.

Size

The Golf Buddy Tour is a device that is easy to take with you on the golf course. It can easily fit into your pants pocket, as it is about the same size as a cell phone.

Considerations

Although the Golf Buddy Tour provides you with suggestions for where you may want to hit the ball, if you are playing on a course that you know well and you want to calculate the distance to another target, you can do this. In fact, the Golf Buddy Tour allows you to plot 11 targets per course at any location you would like--in addition to the already plotted points.

Technology

Thanks to the Golf Buddy Tour's built-in technology, finding the information for the course on which you are playing is easy. For example, if you have 1,000 courses loaded on the Golf Buddy Tour, it could take a few minutes for you to scan a list to find the right course. Fortunately, the Golf Buddy Tour is designed to use its GPS technology to automatically find the course on which you are standing the moment you turn the device on.
