Critical Golf: Unbiased Golf Equipment Reviews

Bushnell NEO Ghost

Want simple? The Bushnell NEO Ghost is it. The Ghost provides front, center, and back of green distances in its 1.4″ x 1.4″ LCD display, with up to four hazard distances per hole – this in addition to the part and hole number. The NEO Ghost comes preloaded with 33,000 courses, with no downloads or annual fees. There are 6 buttons on the device that allow you to move through menus, make selections, and track (but not save) shot distances. With a claimed 14 hours of battery life, you shouldn’t have a problem getting through 2 slow rounds.

The functionality is essentially the same as the Bushnell NEO XS watch. The deciding factor for Bushnell fans will likely be simply if they want to spend a bit more for the convenience of a watch instead of pulling the Ghost from their pocket or the attached belt clip. And while the device is quite small, with the body only 2.2″ x 2.2″ x 0.6″ in size, we are still going to give the nod to watches such as the Bushnell NEO XS, which are just that might simpler.

The waterproof NEO Ghost comes in four colors: black, white, ghost, and neon green, and has a 1 year warranty.

    I have had two Neo Ghosts. Neither came preloaded as advertised by Bushnell I needed to log into igolf to sync both devices. Of the 5 courses I regularly play the neo ghost could pick up a gps signal on only 3 of them despite all 5 courses being listed as available on the Bushnell/igolf site. After numerous emails and resyncing I was advised by igolf to replace the original device which I did with the same result, still no gps signal. I have now given up in disgust. Cannot recommend.

    Have had 2 and neither one would keep a charge for more than 3 hours.

    Wow! I have had zero issues with mine and it lasts for 3 rounds in 4 days. Charges no problem. Others should make sure they have the latest firmware installed which again is easy to do. Picked it up at Dick`s for $49.00 on sale
