We are currently working on our GolfBuddy Voice 2 Review but it’s not too early to say that GolfBuddy has another winner on its hands. Even if you don’t want to use the voice feature, these intuitive little devices are well worth considering.

GolfBuddy Voice 2 User Rating: 4.40 Stars 4.40 out of 5 (118 reviews)

Score compiled from multiple sources.

GolfBuddy has golf distance measuring devices in just about every category, but the one where they seem to dominate is the small voice models. This is their fourth entry into this category and with each new model, comes subtle but significant improvements. The GolfBuddy Voice 2 seems to be continuing that trend.

The predecessor to the Voice 2 was the GolfBuddy VS4 and although the Voice 2 has a nicer appearance, the size, shape, and weight are identical. In fact, there are only three differences that we noticed. The most important improvement is that the Voice 2 gets 14 hours of battery life versus only 10 hours on the VS4. That’s a really nice improvement!

We also like that the clip on the Voice 2 is built into the unit itself, where the previous model came with a clip that had to be attached. You can still get a watchband or belt clip that flips up if you prefer. The other new feature won’t make much functional difference to most users. The Voice 2 can have either a female or male voice and if you want to change it, you’ll need to make the update on your computer and then sync.

The original GolfBuddy Voice is still available, as is the VS4. Both models cost a little less than the newest model, but we think it’s well worth it to buy the GolfBuddy Voice 2 for the extra battery life.

GolfBuddy Voice 2 Notable Features
  • Audio and visual distances to front/center/back of the green
  • Automatic course and hole recognition
  • Shot measurement feature
  • Flip screen feature allows it to be viewed “right side up” when worn on your belt.
  • Rechargeable battery provides up to 14-hour battery life
  • Male/Female voice options through FREE GolfBuddy Manager Program
  • Legal for tournament play
  • Water resistant
  • Multilingual (up to 11 languages, 8 preloaded)
  • Dynamic Green View technology with distance readings from the golfer’s perspective

We don’t think you can go wrong with the GolfBuddy Voice 2, but if the voice feature isn’t important to you, you may also want to consider the Garmin Approach G10 which includes scorecard and stat-tracking.

    Pourriez-vous m’envoyer la notice d’utilisation (en Français) du GolfBuddy voice 2, j’ai également un problème pour modifier la voix féminine et masculine.

  2. FILLIEUX says

    Petit erreur de frappe, en ce qui concerne la modification de voix, je reçois actuellement la voie féminine et je voudrez essayer par curiosité la voix masculine.
    Quel est la marche à suivre?

    I bought the Golf Buddy Voice 2. It isn’t loud enough. If there is any kind of wind or surrounding noise I have to cup my hand behind my ear to hear it. I replaced my I’M Caddie with this unit when it didn’t work any longer. I am disappointed with Golf Buddy.

  5. Allen R gustafson says

    not loud enough. golf buddy voice 2. I took it back because of that. needs to be louder for us seniors. I had I’m caddie and loved it since 2011. Won’t go to golf buddy until you make it louder. I’m taking my i’m caddie to a repair shop and see if it can be fixed.
    golf buddy 2 is a piece of crap.

    • Golf Rangefinder Shop says

      Hi Allen. I think it’s a difficult balance between too loud and not loud enough. Is the volume your only complaint or are there other issues?
