Approach® G3

Part Number: 010-00781-30


Give your game a boost of confidence with Approach G3, a rugged, waterproof, touchscreen golf device packed with thousands of golf course maps. Approach uses a high-sensitivity GPS receiver to measure individual shot distances and show the exact yardage to fairways, hazards and greens.

Fits Perfectly in Your Pocket

A bit smaller and lighter than the Approach G5, Approach G3 is ideal if you prefer to walk the course. Still as rough and rugged as its big brother, Approach G3 lightens your load no matter how you get around the course.

Eliminate the Guesswork

Approach displays and updates your exact position on preloaded course maps for Europe and select golf courses in the Middle East and Africa. We're adding more courses all the time for free download - no subscriptions or additional set-up required. Approach’s highly-sensitive GPS receiver pinpoints your position and removes guesswork from your game. And as you move, Approach automatically updates your position, so you’ll always know your yardage. Approach is compliant with USGA and R&A rules.

Trees Ahead

Tired of trees blocking your view? We’ve included Tree Line Coverage for most courses to help you see where trees line your fairways, further allowing you to adjust your shot.

Touch Your Target

Need to measure distances for your next shot? Touch any point on the sunlight-readable display and Approach shows the precise distance to that exact spot—fairway, hazard, landing area or the front, middle and back of the green.

Get on the Green

Approach helps you zero in on the pin with Green View. Just tap the flag on the map to zoom in on the green — then you can drag the flag to position it where you see it for more accurate yardage.

Keep Score Digitally

Approach doubles as a digital scorecard for your foursome. After the game, you can save and review the scores on your computer at home.

Add More Courses

We’re continuing to add more courses periodically to our map data, as well as updating and improving our course maps for Approach G3.
