COOLSHOT 20 GIII. Reliably fast. Reliably accurate.

Always know the distance of your shot with the COOLSHOT 20 GIII, the third generation of Nikon's lightweight, rainproof COOLSHOT 20 golf rangefinder. Outstanding Nikon optics with a multilayer coating and 6X magnification make it easy to target flagsticks on the most challenging courses. First Target Priority assures that the measurement shown is for the flagstick and not any objects in the background; and LOCKED ON QUAKE provides a gentle vibration as an added confirmation that you're on the pin. You can even scan for up to 8 seconds to get real-time measurements for obstacles, doglegs and other hazards.

Always know the distance.

The lightweight, compact COOLSHOT 20 GIII gives you actual distance measurements in an instant—crucial for picking the right club. Measure up to 800 yards within 2 yards of accuracy, rain or shine. Reliably target the flagstick with First Target Priority mode, and get a confirmation vibration with LOCKED ON QUAKE when you hit it. You can even scan your surroundings for up to 8 seconds to get the lay of the land. Give your game the accuracy it deserves.

A little rain won't keep you off the course, and it won't stop the COOLSHOT 20 GIII from hitting the mark.


No one likes to carry bulky gear on the course. The COOLSHOT 20 GIII isn't much larger than a smartphone, and it’s lightweight at just 4.6 oz.
