Hello Gold Spy, my name is Mark, I live in Ipswich MA and just joined Ipswich CC. I have an old Bushnell range finder that must be 20 years old, no joke. This was used for other applications not golf. It does work but hard to shoot the target. I mostly pace off sprinkler heads. I play mostly with my son who is 14 years old and getting close to beating the old man straight up.
This being a new course without a lot of markings a range finder is vital. Also for my son who just got new irons and needs to dial in his distances. The the equipment and a new 5 inches makes previous information obsolete.
Since we are new members we are playing several times a week and hit balls almost every day. The device would be used on the range, practice area and of course on the course.
I look forward to your response and keep up the good work.
