Rated 4 out of 5 by Water ball It was very helpful
It was a very good tool on the short game very accurate and helped with the dog legs .The only reason i didn't give it 5 stars was that its hard to see on bright days but other than that its a great tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jcraig44 Good Value
I previously had Sky Caddie . Golf Buddy is just as good if not better and NO Annual Fees and You DON'T have to download the courses before hand. Only drawback is You must have the Golf Buddy on at tee box,it sometimes shuts off and if you don't check it will not restart if you are in fairway, must wait til next tee box which is a real pain.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ken Everything I hoped it would be
I researched all GPS units well, and had read all the reviews I could about GPS units. I decided on the Golf Buddy World Platinum before purchasing. Wow, I am impressed, never used one before, but it charged up easily, took it to the course first time with no experience, and my course came up right away with a message about proceeding to the tee box. It was a sunny day, which made the testing great. I'm 62, and wear trifocals, but I usually don't play with my glasses, so this was a slight concern as to whether I would be able to see the screen well. However, I was able to read the screen with no problem, and in the sunlight, yay! Yardage was spot on, and I shot my lowest score in our league so far this summer, first time using my Golf Buddy! What more can I say? Can't wait to play more with it, why did I wait so long?!

Rated 5 out of 5 by hondo great gps
have owned this gps since December 2012. I've used it for approx. 30 rounds. I've had no problems with unit I find the unit is very accurate and easy to use . great features distances to hazards , front , middle and back of green and can move the pin on the screen. just turn it on it automatically finds the course you're on also stat feature is a bonus. I've had no problem with the battery ,last for two rounds before charging.the only downfall of this unit is the screen could be a little brighter in sunlight

Last two times I tried to use the golf buddy it was a complete disaster. The light
is very dim which makes it impossible to read. The letters & numbers are small.

This product is great! The first week I had it I traveled to Colorado to play 3 different courses and each were loaded up w/no problems. It performs great and is easy to read/use.

I had planned on replacing my 3 year old golf buddy world with the latest edition platinum. Tried it for a week and returned it. The screen is terribly light when exposed to sun light. I can't understand how this company could reduce the quality of there product. Most companies try to improve. For now, I will continue to use my 3 year old golf buddy.
Dick's Sporting Goods gave me no hassle whatsoever about returning this unit. That is why Dick's will continue to be my #1 store when it comes to purchasing golf equipment.

Rated 5 out of 5 by exchief My Golf Buddy World Platinum is Great
I play golf at least 4 times a week and at different courses. My Golf Buddy has proven to be very accurate and I give it full credit for this old man shooting lower scores than I ever have. It's so easy to use and I would suggest that I have influenced many of my friends and competitors to buy their own Golf Buddys. In all the years I've played this great game of golf, I have never seen or used a more effective aid for my game.

The product is very good but it fades after 15 seconds and there is no way to make it stay on.

I've only played a few rounds witth my new Golf Buddy, so I'm still getting accustomed to all of the features. So far, I've been bvery impressed with its accuracy in yardage calculation and in its coverage of various trouble areas (sand, water, etc.). It is a little difficult to see the display in bright sunlight, but I'm sure it has the ability to improve the clarity once I find that feature.
Good purchase at a good price. I can hardly wait until they open the Dick's Sporting Goods in Redding, CA.
