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.
