Many thanks go out to Vanessa Price of Read the Greens, Golf Media and Blue Tees Golf for giving me the opportunity to test and review the Series 3 Max Golf Rangefinder from Blue Tees Golf.
Ranging from wearable golf technology, to handheld GPS units, and golf rangefinders there is a literal cornucopia of options available to golf consumers. Price points vary on these products and as far as golf rangefinders go there is a lot to consider. For example, will a cheaper “run of the mill” golf rangefinder give you the features that you need. Especially, when it comes to crystal-clear optics and functionality.
The Series 3 Max Rangefinder from Blue Tees Golf offers many creature comforts for those that prefer laser rangefinders. It goes without saying that like other rangefinders the Series 3 Max travels well. Anytime… Any place. You never need to worry about picking up a satellite signal or downloading golf courses. Just point and shoot, and there’s your yardage to the tree down the right side of the fairway, the yardage to cover the front of the green, or the distance to the pin.
Spoiler Alert: The testing process is underway and so far the Series 3 Max golf rangefinder has been excellent, but, more on that in posts to follow.
In the meantime, please view the unboxing video below. On this day, the wind was pretty severe so I do apologize about some of the audio quality. In this video, I summarize some of the features of the Series 3 Max rangefinder from Blue Tees Golf. Features include but are not limited to…
Range up to 900 yards
A magnetic strip that adheres to your cart during your round
A weather-proof hard case that securely protects the Series 3 Max Rangefinder

Thanks to everyone who has taken the time to take a listen of my golf podcast. It’s definitely a work in progress, but I must say that it’s been a lot of fun.
This past weekend was newsworthy. A young lady has returned to form on the LPGA much in a way that we’ve seen with Jordan Spieth. A 47 year old captures his second victory of the season equalling only Bryson DeChambeau this season on the PGA TOUR. As impressive as it is, what’s more impressive. Two victories at age 47 or the tan line on his head? Hey, speaking of the PGA TOUR how about them introducing the “Player Impact Pool” and it’s associated $40 million prize pool?
Last but not least. The only place in North America where golf isn’t allowed to be played right now, due to increased COVID-19 infections. Last year, I understood. It was an unknown with no answer or vaccination near completion. Protocols were put in place which were followed by golfers except for a few “meatheads”. It was proven that golf can be played safely with the right measures in place.
