With precision optics, proprietary technology that ranges the pin easily (even at extended distances), and a Scan mode available at any time, the Leupold GX-1 digital golf rangefinder sets the pace for line-of-sight measurement. The GX-1 is built around its PinHunter and Prism Lock functions. Every GX-1 golf rangefinder has been precisely calibrated to fire a laser beam at the target in the crosshairs, whether it's a flag, tree, or sand trap. The rangefinder then uses its proprietary beam geometry to gauge the returns from the pin, and its advanced GX software to accurately separate those returns from objects in the background.

The GX-1's PinHunter function lasers precisely on a pin or other target.
There's no better way to determine exactly where a flag or water hazard is located. It's even easier to range a distance pin on courses that utilize prism technology thanks to the GX-1's Prism Lock. Simply hold the top button to scan the area around the pin. The moment the GX-1 identifies a prism-topped flagstick, the rangefinder will beep and the display will freeze. The PinHunter and Prism Lock features combine to make the GX-1 the most accurate golf rangefinder on the market.

The GX-1 also offers both Fog and Scan modes. Unlike most rangefinders--which give measurements from the first target returned, which in some cases is the fog between you and the pin--the GX-1 cuts through the weather to provide fast, accurate measurements to the green. You don't let anything stand between you and the cup, so why should your rangefinder? The Scan mode, meanwhile, delivers multiple readings in one quick sweep. Just hold down the Power button and the display will continuously update with accurate line-of-sight measurements.

Construction and Functionality
Leupold's products are legendary for their durability, with a ruggedly built housing and waterproof body. Fortunately for users, the optical system in the GX-1 is built to the same exacting standards, with precision glass, cutting-edge coating technology, and rugged structural components. The resulting optics are bright and clear, and offer accurate ranging, low glare, scratch resistance, and years of dependable use. In addition, the GX-1 offers an intuitive Quick Set Menu, giving you fast access to all the features of your rangefinder without cluttering the field of view. Best of all, the GX-1 is tournament legal, as it offers line-of-sight measurement only. Need to add precision to your golf game? Look no further than the GX-1.

The rangefinder's Scan mode produces multiple readings with one quick sweep.

Compact (palm size), easy to use and well-built. I have never used a range finder before, so I can't attest to how it compares to its competition, but it works fine. I bought it when I was going on vacation near a course that was not charted by Sky Caddie (GPS). I still carry the Sky Caddie on charted courses, where it is good for a quick check of distances to bunkers, front of green, etc. But if I want the precise distance to the pin, the laser works best. It's especially useful inside of 150 yards. It's also useful on the driving range. My wife borrows the GX-1 now. She likes its small size and also the included case that hooks on to her bag. She prefers it to the GPS, which she says is too complicated. Now she wants one of her own as do some of the women she plays with. I also looked at the GX-2 which includes inputs for altitude, elevation and temperature and can even "recommend" which club to use. However, these features can't be used during competition. Further, even if the algorithms are correct, the promised precision is not overly useful. What about wind? How's your lie? How are the fairways running? Are the greens soft or firm? Fortunately there is still a place for human judgement and experience in this game!

I purchased this after reading several good reviews on the internet. I don't require a lot from a range finder, but the pin-seeker function is a nice add-on. It comes with a compact, durable case that has a clip at the top, and a stiched strap on back if you want to wear it on your belt.

I compared this against my father's 5-year-old bushnell binocular-style rangefinder model, and found some differences:

1. The Leupold is easier to get distances using just one hand, as opposed to the two-handed Bushnell, which has trouble reading with the average amount of hand-shaking.

2. The Leupold and the Bushnell were off +/- 5 yards to the same target, and there seemed to be no consistency with it. I don't know which is correct, but it wouldn't bother you if you're only using the Leupold.

3. The Leupold has the yardage readout above the crosshair, and the Bushnell has the yardage readout below the crosshair. A lot of times on the course, you're looking at a ground target with trees behind it, and I've found the Leupold's yardage readout to be unusually hard to decipher given a tree background. Sometimes, you have to click the button to get the readout, then look up at the sky so the readout will have enough contrast to be legible.

The yardage readout is an annoyance, but shouldn't stop you from purchasing this item. It's compact size, pin-seeker function, and ease-of-use factor make it a necessary addition to any avid golfer.

This thing is so easy to use. I know that optical rangefinders get criticised because of hand shake but this one gives an accurate reading regardless. It seems that as long as the target is somewhere in the middle of the screen then it locks on. Good build quality ... can't find anything wrong with it.

I am a GPS guy, or at least I have been. I have played with this range finder a couple of times now, and I have to say I really love it. To be fair, the GPS I have been using is the old style, with distances to various targets listed in a table - not graphically. What I love most about this laser range finder is the ability to survey the course and get a feel for what I can expect given various distances to targets and locations that naturally catch my eye. In other words, the ones that I feel confidence in making my targets.
- beeps when it catches a reflector - either on the top of a flag stick or someones license plate :)
- gives distances to objects as you pan past them
- quick
- turns off automatically
- no course load worries
- gives close up view of course features
- battery lasts much, much longer and can be purchased at the grocery store on the way to the course

Not as good as GPS:
- does not track score
- doesn't tell distance of the hole (dog leg and long par five, so you have to use the score card)
- line of sight targets only, where GPS sees all
- does not help in finding your ball (my GPS will track distance traveled, so I know the 260 yard arc my ball should be on... although I could shoot backwards to the tee box while searching)

UPDATE: 8/15/2011
So I have been using this range finder throughout the summer, and a couple of items come to mind. First, I am frankly a little disappointed with the ability of the range finder to locate the flag stick. Sometimes it is really hard to tell if I am shooting the stick or the trees and branches 40 yards beyond.

This is my first rangefinder and I have only used it 2x. Once at a course that had pin reflectors and once at a course that did not.

Personal disclosure: I'm an engineer, and fairly particular about technical products. Golf handicap hovers around 12. rarely shoot in the 70s and rarely shoot above 90.

I chose a rangefinder because of concerns over weather affecting signal, subscriptions, and battery life associated with GPS. I was also quite interested in being able to get accurate distances to targets at a driving range. GPS just can't do this.

Picked Leupold primarily based on reviews at

So far I have found it to work amazingly well. range to target seems to be dead on. I was paired with a guy that had the Bushnell and we were never more than 1 yard apart. the Leupold acquired the reflective pins quickly while in scan mode. Also had no problem ranging to hazards. I find ranging to hazards,doglegs, etc to be as important as ranging to pin. At the course with no reflectors on the pins I was able to acquire the flag in scan mode with little trouble. you have to shoot the entire area and watch the display as it doesn't "lock" as when reflectors are in place.

Battery is still showing full so if a battery lasts 10 rounds I would be thrilled. they can be purchased for $5 each or less on Amazon so <50 cents per round will be fine by me.

only downside I can see vs GPS is when you can't see target because of doglegs, obstacles, etc. But in my personal experience if I can't see the green I'm generally aiming at the middle of green and sprinkler head or other markers are sufficient.

Overall the Leupold has met all my expectations and I'm very happy with the purchase.
