The GolfBuddy World Platinum

GolfBuddy World Platinum provides precise yardages to and from any point on the course and combines superior 50-channel GPS firepower with outstanding tee-to-green course images and yardage numbers visibility.

Alongside its innovative Pro Play system – which allows golfers to track, record and analyse their own playing statistics, including greens and fairways hit in regulation and number of putts per hole – the GolfBuddy World Platinum has been developed with and to meet the exacting course management standards of some of the world’s best Tour coaches, including Denis Pugh and Rick Smith.

And with its mammoth 40,000 course memory and most of the world's golf courses pre-loaded, the World Platinum continues to establish GolfBuddy as the only GPS rangefinder brand that provides golfers true global GPS accuracy completely free of charge.

With GolfBuddy there are no annual subscriptions or course download fees – you just turn it on and play.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum demonstrates its credentials as the world's most powerful GPS rangefinder from the moment you arrive at the course. This incredible new product takes golf GPS to the next level by blending uncompromising GPS performance with simplicity and ease of use in a lightweight, ergonomic body with a bright, 3" hi-resolution, anti-glare LCD screen.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum’s 50-channel GPS satellite architecture and Galileo compliant platform gives faster signal acquiring times, uninterrupted operation, better performance in city areas and lightning fast position fixes - even in environments where GPS signals are extremely weak.

The Automatic Course & Hole Recognition system instantly understands and displays which course you are playing and also knows which hole you are on - making it perfect for shotgun starts or when playing resorts or complexes with multiple courses or layouts.

Out on the course, the transflective colour touchscreen LCD display ensures exceptional color and detail and uses thin-film transistor (TFT) technology which gives optimum performance and maximum image quality in bright light. And its anti-glare, smudge-resistant design makes it super-easy to use - even while wearing a golf glove.

When playing a hole, the Direct Overhead Imaging displays an eagle-eye view from tee to green, while TouchPoint gives users the ability to touch the screen to zoom in on a specific section or to instantly measure precise distances between any two points on the Full Hole Layout.

Players can switch easily to yardages mode and get an instant and clear numerical display of distance to the green, or select Targets mode and see a panel containing distances to and to carry all hazards ahead.

Around the green, Dynamic Green Approach provides exact distances to the front, middle and back of the green directly from the angle of approach and shows the actual shape of the green, while the Touch ’N’ Move Flag lets golfers position the pin anywhere on the green to calculate exactly how much room they have to play with.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum also provides a great platform for players to record scores and analyse their playing statistics from greens in regulation, to percentage of fairways hit, and to average putts per round. All this can all be stored in the device or on your computer via the simple GolfBuddy Manager software.

The GolfBuddy World Platinum boasts a sleek and edgy design but has been manufactured to withstand the rigours of the golf course, with a rugged lithium-ion battery, shock and water resistant casing with impact-shielding side bumpers and a high tech rubber coating.

Launching now, the GolfBuddy World Platinum is priced at £349 - but with no additional subscription or download fees, ever. For more information, visit
