Bushnell Neo Ghost: £99

Our verdict: GPS don’t come much more straight forward than the Ghost. Distances are shown to the back, centre and front of each green and up to four hazards per hole, which is just about all you really need.

Each unit comes with an attachable clip and Bushnell reckon its battery life is so good you can play 3 rounds before it needs recharging. This handy little device is so useful, our Digital Editor swears by it.

Our verdict: Walk to anywhere on the golf course and push the Voice’s front button and it reels off how far you have to the front, centre and back of a green. Dynamic green views show distances from the golfers perspective.

Garmin Approach G10: £129.99

Our verdict: Distances are limited to front, back and middle of greens, along with hazards, but there is a view to show the shape of the green and you can manually position the pin. The screen is just 1.3in square, an odometer means you can track how far you’ve gone and there’s a digital scorecard function, too.
