Launch Monitors

Golf launch monitors provide a detailed analysis of your every move on the golf course. These high-tech devices capture data points, such as spin rate, swing speed, carry distance, launch angle and much more. By tracking your shots, you can find key areas for improvement and fine-tune your technique. The beauty of our portable launch monitors is that you can use them indoors and outdoors. So, whether you’re playing a round or practising at home, you can track your shots and strive to beat your personal best.

We stock Garmin launch monitors that also give you access to over 40,000 preloaded courses from around the world. See how you fare on some of the world’s toughest courses!

GPS Devices

GPS has revolutionised the way players navigate the course, allowing accurate distance measurements to fairways, greens and – most importantly – hazards.

We recommend having a GPS if you want to make better decisions about club selection and shot placement. We stock compact and powerful GPS devices that attach to your bag or trundler. Some even have speaker capabilities if you enjoy a good tune around the course.

If you want to confidently plan your shot, add a GPS to your golfing arsenal. We wouldn’t be without ours!

Nothing screams convenience like a smartwatch, especially on the golf course. With all your shot analysis technology strapped to your wrist, our smartwatches are the ultimate golfing companion.

Capture essential swing data, track fitness metrics, plan your shots and avoid hazards in one wearable device.

We stock Bushnell and Garmin watches in a range of colours, sizes and price points. If you’re a serious golfer, we highly recommend adding a smartwatch to your equipment set, as their capabilities have the power to revolutionise your game. Some watches, such as the Garmin Approach S70, display over 43,000 golf courses from around the world, allowing you to test your performance on almost any course you like.

It’s no secret that there are varying degrees of rangefinders out there. But we’ve handpicked our favourites to create the best range for you to choose from.

Rangefinders provide accurate distance measurements on the course. As the easiest way to determine how far you are from a specific point, rangefinders help you make strategic decisions about which club to use and how hard to hit.

We’ve long been big fans of the rangefinder, but technology has come leaps and bounds in recent years, opening up impressive features that take golfing to the next level. Whether you’re looking for a state-of-the-art rangefinder or something a little more budget-friendly, we have something for everyone.

Swing analysis software

We use an innovative golf simulator for all custom club fittings, ensuring you get the perfect club to complement your swing. The accuracy of the data means we can fit you with a club that considers lie angle, club length and grip size.

Golfers are constantly impressed by our golf simulator as it gives such a detailed analysis of their swing. This software has been a game-changer in custom club fittings!

Golf Technology FAQs

Swing analysis inside a golf simulator at Golf 360.

Q. Do rangefinders work equally well for all skill levels?

A. Rangefinders are beneficial for golfers of all skill levels. Beginners can use them to improve shot selection, while advanced players like the data for strategic decision-making.

Q. Do rangefinders require any special maintenance?

A. Generally, rangefinders are low-maintenance devices. However, it doesn’t hurt to keep the lenses clean, replace batteries as needed, and store the device in a protective case when not in use. Of course, we also recommend avoiding exposing it to moisture.

Q. How do laser rangefinders differ from GPS rangefinders?

A. Laser rangefinders use laser technology to measure distances by bouncing a laser beam off the target, providing precise readings. GPS rangefinders, on the other hand, use satellite data to determine distances to various points on the course.

Q. How does a golf smartwatch differ from a regular smartwatch?

A. Unlike regular smartwatches, golf smartwatches cater to golf enthusiasts with golf-centric functionalities.

Q. Do golf smartwatches require a smartphone connection to function?

A. While most of our golf smartwatches can function independently, you can connect yours to your smartphone to receive notifications from other apps.

Q. Do golf smartwatches come with preloaded golf apps, or can I download additional apps?

A. Golf smartwatches often come with preloaded golf apps that provide essential golf-related functionalities.

Q. Are your golf smartwatches waterproof?

A. Our range of smartwatches is designed to be water-resistant or waterproof, allowing them to withstand rain or splashes on the course. However, the degree of water resistance varies among models, so we recommend checking your device’s specifications.
