$900.00 now regular price $1300.00. Still at that price tonight 9:45 west coast time.

I have used the Garmin 735xt and now use the garmin 945. Both offer a great sport watch with solid golf features. I track all my stats via garmin golf. Gives you a lot of post round data - drive distance, shot accuracy, ect. On the course I primarily use it for front middle back yardages, hazard cary, and scorecard. My buddy uses the vivoactive and gets the same golf data but I needed something a little more robust for the running and biking. 

 

Hope that helps!

I'd think you're best bet would be a Garmin.  Lots of choices:

Narrow it down more if you want heart rate monitoring or even pulse-ox.

 

If you want one with the preloaded courses on the watch that will narrow it down a but more as well.  The alternative is downloading the desired course prior to playing from your phone.

 As a Garmin geek, yes go with one. Fenix series does well for golf(my everyday watch) and courses are preloaded. As a cyclist also it works well. Check them out.

 Just checked, if you are a member at Costco and you can get a screaming deal on a Marq

Killer price! Like it better than my S60 golf watch.

I"m not a member.  Just curious, how killer?

 

FYI I believe you need a Fenix with the premium features option to get the preloaded courses.   That's what I've been looking at if/when I upgrade from the s60.

I'm a better runner than golfer.

 

I've had garmin running watches for years (between my wife and I, probably 7 or 8). The only one in a reasonable range was the vivoactive/fit combo watches, but the golf was limited. It may be a hard pill to swallow but 2 watches may be better than one. For most runners the 245 series is good enough and easy to find and the golf watches are great too. 

 

I just switched to running with a apple series 6 edition and love it. Just record straight to strava. music/calls/texts on the go and paired with some airpods pros. havent used for golf yet but I'm about to.

I haven't tried a bunch but I also think separate devices is the way to go.  I tried a S60 briefly and quickly moved on as I didn't like it for running for multiple reasons.  So I picked up a 245 for running and absolutely love that watch.  Use it as my everyday watch as well.  For golf I moved on from a watch as I had too many instances of sun reflecting near my ball and distracting me, especially when putting.  Using the Garmin G10 now.  The 245 and G10 work perfectly for their respective sport and cost less combined than the S60 when I got them.
