Best Golf Launch Monitors

The four units we cover in this list of the best golf launch monitors

As golfers improve their game, the differences between a good shot and a great shot become tougher to quantify with the naked eye. To a point, practice can become limited by the data one can collect about each shot. To help golfers get a clearer and more specific idea of what they need to work on, launch monitors are available that track a number of key shot metrics.

Launch monitors vary quite a bit in terms of features, cost, form factor, and precision (to a lesser extent). Many of these differences make or break each launch monitor for a given golfer, so there is no bona fide #1 option for everybody. Instead, we are going to give a rundown of the best golf launch monitors for several different priorities and use cases:

Best Budget Launch Monitor Rapsodo MLM2PRO/Voice Caddie SC4
Best Value Launch Monitor + Simulator Skytrak+ Launch Monitor
Best for Maximum Precision and Features Foresight GCQuad

Let’s dive into our recommendations for each situation and find the best launch monitors for every golfer.

Best Budget Launch Monitor: Rapsodo MLM2PRO/Voice Caddie SC4

Offering a compelling two-way tie for our best budget launch monitor, the Rapsodo MLM2PRO and Voice Caddie SC4 are comparable in the form factor and functionality. Both of these portable launch monitors can be used in just about any practice environment, inside or outside, with and without a net. They are also extremely easy and quick to set up, offer simulator functionality through a mobile app, and provide accurate shot metrics through Doppler radar technology.

They sit about $100 apart in price, but the key differences make them both great values at their given price points:

Best Value Launch Monitor +Simulator: Skytrak+ Launch Monitor

The Skytrak+ Launch Monitor is our choice for best value launch monitor + simulator not because it is the cheapest unit around, but rather because the price point they do occupy seems like an absolute steal for their unrivaled combination of easy setup, high-quality visuals, course variety, and accurate shot metrics. The launch monitor itself provides extensive and accurate ball and club metrics, with more measured metrics than most units beneath their price point.

They also come in simulator package sets that include a launch monitor, an HDR-capable projector with a mounting arm, a hitting mat, putting turf, and enclosure netting– everything you need for an incredibly immersive golf simulation in one package. This is where their value shines the most, as many launch monitors below this price point (and even some that cost significantly more) don’t provide nearly the same quality as a simulator.

If you’re looking for a premium launch monitor and simulator for a price that feels like you should only be getting one or the other, the Skytrak+ and its studio package provide an all-in-one experience unmatched by any other golf launch monitor or simulator on the market in its price range ($2,995 for the monitor, $6,995 for the simulator package). The unit is compatible with any external display that uses an HDMI cable, so golfers looking to create a more budget-minded setup themselves as opposed to buying a package set can easily make this value even better.

Best for Maximum Precision and Features: The Foresight GCQuad

For high-level golfers who require the ultimate precision and the most comprehensive feature set that a launch monitor could possibly offer, there is no better option than the Foresight GCQuad. With 14 measured ball and club metrics, putting analysis, a massive 18”x14” hitting zone, four high-definition cameras, and many more industry-leading features, the GCQuad simply leaves nothing on the table regarding accurate shot tracking and simulation.

Frankly, the GCQuad has such an extensive list of features, quality-of-life improvements, and specifications that make it a more precise, versatile, and comprehensive data collection tool that we struggle to capture it all in our commentary. To properly illustrate how premium of a unit the GCQuad is, we have included a full spec and features list:

(Info from

The Foresight GCQuad launch monitor carries a premium price tag comparable with its premium features ($18,500). To get a simulator setup to go along with it, it will run another $1-3 thousand. But golf can get expensive, and a simulator package with a GCQuad launch monitor is an absolute dream for golfers who prioritize having the best of the best. So, for those who can manage the cost, this is our #1 pick.

I’ve been at Worldwide Golf Shops for 6 years, and I’ve been playing golf for 23 years. I have played a few mini tour events but now compete occasionally at the amateur level– currently a +2.1 handicap. I am a bit of a tinkerer when it comes to golf and golf clubs. I enjoy testing all aspects of different products, utilizing various fitting systems and learning about all the different club shafts, club lengths, golf balls, and putter styles. Not just for my game, but to help customers of all calibers.
