4.0 out of 5 stars Lesley 26 Aug 2012

Very easy to use. Lots of course information although I have found not all the hazards of a hole are listed in the "targets". Overall though a very useful tool.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's a hit, in the right direction. 29 July 2013
Verified Purchase
Easy enough to use but I find I only use the distance recorded. The screen is not bright enough for easy recognition and most buggy holders interfere with the side buttons that control the device.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good purchase, shame about my golf skills... 19 July 2014
Verified Purchase
Good piece of kit. Still learning the controls but most are simple. Screen isn't bright enough on default setting but is clear and concise. I'd purchase again if I had the choice.

My son has a Garmin watch which is also very good. Either is a great choice for a golfer but I prefer being being able to get a view of the hole and distances to hazards which you don't get with a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars better golf 28 Sep 2012
By james
Verified Purchase
I have used the buddy a few times now, although i do not hit the ball to exact distances,i have found that it gives me more confidence with club selection, so tend to take the correct club for the shot,had a problem with it at the start,but studying the dvd supplied helped out!bit difficult to read scale when marking score, so do not bother to use that facility.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dreadful customer service 11 Aug 2012
Verified Purchase
Course pars/indices are set up for men's tees, fine if you are a man, a nuisance if you're not.

Customer support is non-existent. Emails are ignored. After much proding I eventually got a reply to my email but it was most unhelpful. They didn't even attempt to answer my simple question, they just told me to read the user manual like I hadn't thought of that. My question remains unanswered.
