Callaway has become the first major club manufacturer to step into the distance measuring device market, with the launch of the Callaway 300 Laser Rangefinder.

Featuring Pin Acquisition Technology, the Callaway 300 Laser Rangefinder gets its name from its range, which allows it to lock onto flags up to 300 yards away.

Providing accuracy to within one yard of the distance, the rangefinder also has the capability to magnify to six times further to give you a better view of the green or any trouble you want to avoid off the tee.

The lightweight and completely waterproof device runs off a CR2 3-volt Lithium battery that is long lasting and easily replaceable, while an auto-shutoff system ensures the device powers down if idle for more than five seconds.

The 300 Laser Rangefinder (£279.99) can measure distances in yards or metres, and comes with a carry case for safe storage.
