I certainly can’t blame my golf accessories if I miss a green or a target! When I’ve got the Bushnell NEO Ghost pocket golf GPS on my person I have a light and easy to read yardage. Let’s take a look at the NEO Ghost in detail.
On The Course
First things first. To get the NEO Ghost ready for a round it needs to be charged. Unlike many golf GPS units, the NEO Ghost has a standard micro USB port. It can be charged with a regular micro USB cable one might use for a smartphone or other USB peripherals. Since it has no proprietary bizarre cable to charge it, you won’t end up on your first trip to Bandon Dunes realizing you can’t use your GPS because you forgot the funky charger. Rant over…
A full charge lasts forever, or up to 14 hours. I say forever because I can go several rounds before having to charge the unit. Other GPS units I’ve reviewed barely last more than one round.
The size and ease of use of the NEO Ghost is a big selling point. The soft edges and rounded corners slide in and out of my pocket easily. Nothing sharp to bug me when the unit is in my pocket. It is so light that I can hardly tell it is on my person.
Looking at the display is refreshing. It is super simple with big clear yardages. The big number is the center of the green. The smaller numbers represent yardages to the front and back of the green. The unit will also provide crucial information regarding hazard yardages, like greenside bunkers. It is always great to know the exact yardage to “cover” a bunker.
The unit powers up quickly and automatically knows the course I’m playing. With 33,000 courses it is unlikely a user will run across a course which is not in the unit.
Ranging from $99 to $129, the NEO Ghost golf GPS by Bushnell is a very affordable and easy to use golf measuring device. It delivers solid data, is sharp looking, light, charges easily, and lasts a long time. Fantastic.
The NEO Ghost would make a great golf gift for Father’s Day, Christmas, Birthdays and more.
