I don't disagree with any of the suggestions everyone else made, but for my money, I'd never buy any rangefinder other than Leupold. Why? Their unmatched warranty and customer service. You'll see tons of examples if you do a search here--here's mine. I bought a used Leupold GX-3 from another Wrxer here probably 2-3 years ago for like $150--the rangefinder was probably already 3 years old at that point. Worked great, but lately the OLED display was starting to fade a bit on the edges. Still useable, but definitely getting harder to read. Sent it in this October for repair. I got an email reply that it might take 3-6 weeks. I just called in today for a status update, and the customer service rep said that since they no longer made/carried stock in the GX-3, they were waiting to get more stock in the next model up, the GX-3i, which they were going to send to me. That would have been just great with me, a newer model. Instead, because they were still out of stock on that model, and the return estimate of 6 weeks had passed, the rep asked if it would be okay if he just sent me their top of the line model, the GX-5i3. I wasn't complaining or arguing on the phone or demanding things -- just following up on the status. Incredible service, and combined with their awesome product, I'm not buying anything else.
Now, I know that they are super expensive--remember, I bought mine used. But they do have a less expensive model called the PinCaddie, which might suit your needs. I've never used one of that model though.
It's more than the others that you could get--but to me, I think I'd get a Leupold (used, new, whatever)--simply for the fact that they will stand behind their product, it'll hold its resale value and they work great. I've had a TecTecTec one, which is one of those sold on Amazon, and I returned it. But to each his own. Good luck!

Any issues here with finding pins regardless of some courses having the reflectors, etc?
