The Golf Buddy Tour GPS can be used straight out of the box as courses are already preloaded onto the device with the capacity to hold up to 20,000 courses around the world. On arrival the Golf Buddy will automatically track the course you are on. You also have the option to customise your own targets to find the exact yardage to lay-up areas and pin positions. A score recorder is also included in the system.

The fact that courses are preloaded onto the Golf Buddy is a huge bonus. It means there is no need to attach the unit to a computer and takes away the need for any paid subscription. When you do need to use the buttons on the GPS they are not the easiest to operate.
