A Rangefinder for golf only
Targeting the flag at 200 yards is always going to be a challenge, regardless of the advertising, becuase the flag is simply a very small target. On a calm day when the flag is folded around the pole, forget 200 yards or even 150 yards. You will need to select a larger, nearby target to get a reading.
Any LRF labeled as a "golf" model, though, will seek the nearest target first, such as the flag. You can use a field LRF if it has a selectable target mode that allows you to choose between nearest target priority and farthest traget priority (goes by several names - brush, zip, and so on). Any gold LRF, though, will also target things across the pond at 200 yards, assuming the target is large enough
The best golf LRF on the market is probably the Bushnell Pinseeker or the Leica, but the Nikon 500G is also excellent and very compact.
