G’DAY, golfers! I know that I start every month like this, but wow we’re in for a treat here. 

I’ve had the pleasure of reviewing the GolfBuddy Voice 2 SE as well as the GolfBuddy aim W11 Golf GPS Watch. Let’s get into it!

Let’s start with the GolfBuddy Voice 2 SE, which my mum accurately described as ‘the Siri of golf’. The GolfBuddy voice GPS is the first of its kind, and is the #1 selling voice GPS unit in golf. Upon opening the box, I was pleasantly surprised to find that I could use the unit straight out of the box and that it was incredibly easy to use. 

The talking golf GPS was a real treat to have on the course. All I had to do was press a button and it reads the distance to the front/centre/back of the green aloud. I loved that I was able to clip the unit to my cap, pants or bag, however I found it was most practical when clipped onto my hat.

Having used this in a recent game whilst on holidays in Adelaide, one particular feature that I enjoyed (and I think you will too readers) was the automatic course and hole recognition. 

Once walking from the green to the tee, I didn’t need to change anything on the unit as it always knew where I was and automatically changed holes for me. 

Once in Golf Mode, the unit has 20 hours of battery life which was incredibly convenient for me as I forgot the charger when packing for my holidays. The unit is preloaded with over 40,000 different courses across 170 countries, so it’s likely got your local on there too.

The GolfBuddy Voice 2 SE was incredibly simple to use, and could definitely simplify your golf game so I’d recommend giving it a try.

Now onto the GolfBuddy aim W11 Golf GPS Watch. The aim W11 is GolfBuddy’s most advanced golf GPS watch they have brought out. 

As I have written in previous reviews, I don’t love wearing a watch whilst playing but again I have had my mind changed after the experience with the GOLFBUDDY aim W11 watch. 

As always, I like to start with the aesthetics and this watch is really stylish and looked great with any outfit I tried. The band was super comfortable to wear which can sometimes be an issue when playing 18 holes and making 80-90 swings a round and it’s a really fun gadget to have on hand. 

The watch has a full colour touch screen display and you get to choose from eight different time display choices (either classic or digital), so you’ll definitely find something that suits your style and it’s amazingly easy to use. The ability to change functions was seamless and made for a great experience wearing the watch. 

One of the watch’s main features which wasn’t hard to use but arguably its best feature in my opinion was its ability to manually place pin placements and then the ability to use the touch screen to get distanced from bunkers and hazards. Another feature I enjoyed was the easy to use digital scorecard. 

Like the GolfBuddy Voice 2 SE, the automatic hole recognition made the experience of wearing the watch another added benefit and something I don’t normally do is play in the rain, however it did rain and good news the watch is waterproof. 

When it comes to golf and you are thinking about your next purchase, GPS unit and/or watch, GolfBuddy needs to be a consideration at front of mind. 

GolfBuddy make an extremely high quality, luxurious product at a very affordable price point. The latest two products are a testament to this comment. Happy golfing!
