Golf Monthly's Bushnell Neo Ghost review, a pocket-sized, lightweight GPS device that provides hazard and approach distances at an affordable price
Key technology This pocket-sized GPS comes preloaded with over 33,000 courses, with no fees to pay after your purchase. It provides yardages to the front, middle and back of the green, and reveals up to four hazards per hole.
Other features include auto course recognition, auto hole advance, and a shot measuring function. It’s USB rechargeable battery will last for three full rounds, while the unit itself can be kept in your pocket, or placed on your bag using the multi-function clip.
GM ReviewOut of the box, the Neo Ghost is ready to go. Value for money is the device’s greatest asset, offering lay-up distances and shot measurement as well as your usual distances for under £100 with no annual fees.
Its compact size will suit many golfers who find watches too distracting and laser rangefinders too time consuming while the battery life is extremely impressive, going four rounds comfortably in GPS mode.
The clip, while looking a little flimsy, works well to attach it to your bag so distances can be read at a glance. A massive 20 contrast modes ensure the display is easily readable. While some people may want more detail, four hazards and three green yardages should cover everything the club golfer could ever need.
