Bushnell Tour V3 Standard User Rating:
4.72 Stars 4.72 out of 5 (895 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

The price is right and the performance is outstanding. The only rangefinders we rank higher are quite a bit more expensive and have features that appeal to golfers who compete in tournaments and golfers who may need a little additional assistance in using or reading the display on a rangefinder.

Although other similarly priced rangefinders have slightly higher magnification, we didn’t come across any users who complained about having trouble picking up the target. In fact the two top mentions in the feedback we reviewed were the accuracy and the ease of acquiring distances. Take a look at our full list below.

GolfRangefinderShop.com Summary
We’ve simply never seen a golf rangefinder at this price point that gets this kind of rave reviews from this many users. The Bushnell V3 doesn’t have any bells and whistles, but it does a superb job of picking up the distance to your target and letting you know with the vibrating burst known as Jolt technology. It’s small and lightweight and the price is amazing!
We work very hard to obtain the correct information about product features, but cannot make any guarantees about the accuracy. Please double check with the merchant or manufacturer before making a purchase.

  1. Neil Mallett says:

    I heard that these rangefinders suddenly stop working with no apparent reason – Anyone had that happen to them – It maybe as a result of being used when its raining ? Comments please

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says:

      Hi Neil. That’s definitely NOT a common complaint. The V3 is “rainproof” and my experience with Bushnell rangefinders is that they can handle heavy rain just fine. This is one of the highest rated and most popular rangefinders ever, so I would suggest a sudden malfunction like that is unlikely. Good luck in your decision.

  2. My Bushnell Tour v3 stopped working after about 9 months. I changed the battery and it still did not work for a while then suddenly restarted. Now about 4 months later it had stopped working again. Will try another battery change to see if that works. What is the typical battery life on these devices? Has amnyone else had this problem?

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says:

      Obviously, battery life varies by how much you play, but I’ve gotten close to a year out of mine.
