Call it inflation, supply-chain disruption, increased participation or all of the above: golf equipment and accessories have increased in price since 2020. After an October edition in 2020, Amazon Prime Day is back for summer 2021, taking place June 20-21. The online marketplace has a wide array of golf products being sold at a discount.
Some categories of golf gear have more offers than others on Amazon. A strong point of Prime Day is an assortment of rangefinders, from well-known brands to obscure ones. There are many indoor hitting mats and nets on sale as well. Off-the-wall accessories and decor is also abundant. So are amateur golf wares like ball retrievers and iron covers.
Those of you hoping for deep discounts on hot products like golf balls, clubs or push carts will have to look elsewhere - nothing significant is available for Prime Day on Amazon.
We've scanned the sales and have dropped in our best picks for the best golf products for Amazon Prime Day in 2021:
Precision Pro NX9 Rangefinder
Rangefinders are a strong suit of Amazon Prime Day and there are many different models and brands to choose from. Some obscure brands are offering rangefinders for as low as $80-90. It's hard for us to give full-throated endorsements to these we've never heard of or tried but their ratings are generally okay. One better-known brands is Precision Pro, whose NX9 model is on sale for $219.99 and features slope, magnetic mount, 600-yard range and vibration on lock. Precision Pro's non-slope NX9 model is available for $175.
For something less expensive, WoSports' Rangefinder is $86, about half off list price and equipped with slope and vibration.
Garmin Approach s40 GPS watch
Those of you who prefer wrist-based GPS and scoring over a rangefinder will want to check out the Garmin Approach s40. This is an older model, - Garmin's s42 was released earlier this year - but the s40 is still feature-packed including auto shot-measuring and pairs with CT10 club sensors, and Garmin's hardware is built to last. View the s40 Approach on Amazon.
Rapsodo Mobile Launch Monitor
Mobile launch monitors continue to proliferate in popularity and the only one on Amazon Prime Day is Rapsodo, whose MLM is offered for $429 ($499 list price). The Rapsodo MLM is a very portable launch monitor that, used with an iPhone, can produce all the launch stats from carry distance to ball speed and launch angle, and also has audio playback and video record.
