I have the Callaway LR550 rangefinder and I love mine.  It is only $200.  Ive used mine for about a year, it holds up well.  Its all waterproof so you can use it in the rain, thats nice.

My buddy has the Laser Link Red Hot Rangefinder.  I used it last year while on a golf trip with him.  I liked it a lot!  I didn't like the $300 price tag.  I looked at golf galaxy and golfsmith and it's on sale for $250 now.  I like it because you can shoot objects up to 400 yards away, you don't the the targets on the flag stick.  I'm 90% sure I'm going to pull the trigger on this for this season.

I have a Calloway, Diablo Octane by Nikon. It's great! Waterproof, no complaints. Works to 550 Yds. on any surface. Saw it at Rock Bottom Golf for $250 with Free Shipping.

But I got it with my Company rewards points for 25 Years of service. Cost to me out of pocket... Nothing! Just 25 years of indigestion, aggravation, etc. &

+1 on the Nikon LR550. I got mine about 2 1/2 years ago and haven't had a single problem with it. I has good range, picks up the target and locks on really fast. I got mine for $150 (new) when TGW was having a sale. The only "modification" I made was putting a small piece of Gorilla tape over the battery cover to keep it secured, as others said they had the battery cover come off unexpectedly.

Mine has a yellow cover, which saved me from leaving it in the cart on a few occasions.

I have found it to be excellent and highly recommend.

I was in the market for a rangefinder until I stumbled on this: http://onthegreen.weebly.com/gps-and-rangefinders.html page. After reading this, I decided I needed one of each, a gps and a rangefinder. I like the gps because it will give me a layout of the hole with water hazards, sand bunkers, OB, etc. and the yardages away. The rangefinder would be good if I could see the green but the courses I play, often have blind tee shots. They also have the Laser Link Red Hot unit for $219 and the lesser model for $139. For $300, I think I can buy one of each and be set.

I ended up going with the callaway razr. Can't wait to use it. The courses around here are just opening now after a long snowy winter. Played my first round yesterday don't really want to talk about that LOL. Hopefully this can help me knock a couple strokes off my rounds.

Yeah, it is a great investment.

I have the "Golf Buddy"

Clips on your hat, audio talks to you.

Press the button and it gives you the yardage from front center or back of green. It's rechargable and about $125.00 on Amazon.

I love it as I don't have to take time lifting and sighting a target. Just pull up to your ball and press the button. Every course in the U.S. is recognized and included.

    • Good to have golfers from all over the planet here. See you around! Under the "How To..." drop down menu above, there are all kinds of things there you might want to scan through. How to create an "avatar" How to get "Achievements" (those little icons that show up at the bottom of your posts) How to quote people or other sources How to embed video. Just lots of the details about how things get done here. Since you're interested in instruction, don't miss the "Info...Instructional Content" link in the menu above. Also linked here below. That'll give you a sense of some of the top instruction threads that have been created here in the past. Lastly, you mentioned that there are lots of "tips" here- and you'll quickly find that this site does not promote the idea of hunting the internet for "tips." This site is all about finding the correct priority for fixing a swing (not always easy for us golfers to know) and then applying practice techniques to address that one thing. Then move on to the next priority. I'm not saying that I think you are one of these "tip-hunters", but since you mentioned the word, I just wanted to put it out there that there are lots of testimonies here about the futile search for "tips" on the internet and not improving much as a result of going from one tip to another.  Anyway, welcome! Here's the thread I mentioned above.  
    • Winston Salem only carries balls. The other stores are at least 1.5 hours away.
    • I agree.... my mechanics are to blame much more than my composure, as is the case with the majority of us.  If you read my comment in context of the previous comments, you'll see I wasn't claiming composure>physical at all. 
    • Revealing thread, there are varying "definitions" of what's mental and what's physical. I would have called game planning, green reading and just practicing effectively mental, along with just maintaining composure/managing pressure/stress. What's the essential difference between someone who just mindlessly bashes ball after ball at the range vs someone who practices with purpose? "The way I look at it in golf is that the mental game is a mechanism for fulfilling physical potential. Physical potential being a function of natural ability and effort put in through practice, instruction, conditioning, etc. Physical potential won’t automatically be transferred to the golf course in the form of performance. That is where a strong mental game steps in and allows the body to perform the tasks it has already been trained to do. In other words, the mental game bridges physical potential and physical performance. When faced with consequence on the golf course, the physical motion the body already knows how to perform can be hindered by doubt, fear, and anxiety. Our mind and body know how to physically execute the shot, and the mental game is required to protect that ability by warding off the potential doubt, fear or anxiety."
    • Today I came across to this video and just wanted to share it with you guys Her swing looks great!
