The best laser rangefinders allow you to measure distances accurately and quickly, making them a must-have for golfers. You just have to point your laser rangefinder at the green or hole, and the device will automatically calculate the distance for you. This helps you to choose the right club and improve the accuracy of your shot. 

Of course, a laser rangefinder can have other uses too – for other sports such as hunting and archery, as well as professions such as construction and real estate.
