Best Golf Rangefinder Father's Day Gift

Any gift for Father's Day says you care. But what about a gift that says you know him? If he's a golfer, you can't go wrong with a golf rangefinder. And we're recommending two top-of-the-line golf laser rangefinders that will bring tears—and 6x magnification—to his eyes.

The Bushnell Pro XE Golf Laser Rangefinder

The Bushenell Pro XE laser rangefinder will give Dad an edge on the course with its enhanced slope feature "Elements" (that's the "E" in "Pro XE"). In addition to the already enhanced algorithm in Bushnell slope rangefinders, the Bushnell Pro XE laser rangefinder factors in temperature and elevation above sea level (Barometric pressure) to their patented Slope technology to give golfers even more precise compensated distances. It also has double confirmation when the flagstick is targeted and built-in magnet technology so Dad can grab it when he needs it. Check out the features in our comparison article of our high-end golf laser rangefinders.

The Nikon COOLSHOT PROII STABILIZED Golf Laser Rangefinder

Get Dad the the Nikon COOLSHOT PROII STABILIZED laser rangefinder that reduces handshake by 80%! There's no other golf laser rangefinder like it! What good is owning the best optics technology in a laser rangefinder if the wind or natural handshake makes it difficult to use. Bring accuracy back into focus for Dad with the perfect Father's Day gift. This slope rangefinder lets him keep the game moving with HYPER READ and Dual LOCKED ON ECHO technology. He'll be able to focus with confidence on his clubs and swing when he has accurate distances to the pin. Learn more about this premium golf laser rangefinder in our features review.

Looking for something a little little more affordable?  

Both Nikon and Bushnell have two other high-quality slope golf laser rangefinders that we recommend: the Nikon COOLSHOT 50i and the Bushnell Tour V5 with Slope. But that's not all! We have Leupold golf rangefinders and Garmin laser rangefinders as well! We're sure you'll find the best golf rangefinder for Dad!
