NCG TESTS: GolfBuddy World PlatinumFebruary 28, 2012 Golf Equipment
NCG's team of experts review all the latest kit independently. Find out what they thought of the GolfBuddy World Platinum GPS device...
WHAT WE THOUGHT
Although flashy, we don’t find touch screens functional. This is the only thing holding back the GolfBuddy. It is pre-loaded with almost every course you could hope to play on the planet, so is usable straight out of the box – a big plus – but can be quite difficult to operate if you’re not quite at the cutting edge of technology.
TESTED: January 2012
TESTERS: Joe Whitley (7hcp), Dan Murphy (3hcp), Mark Townsend (7hcp)
Intuitive touch screen; TouchPoint lets you measure distances from all parts of the hole; sleek design and rugged battery
